Got an answer from Apple. They confirm what I thought:
Promo codes for auto-renewable subscriptions are valid only
for the duration of the subscription. Subscriptions purchased with a
promo code do not automatically renew.
So, in my case; one month and then it expires.
iCloud for Windows
Download the software from Windows Store and sign in with the Apple ID photos are used with.
Open the options for photos and tick all the options which make original photos stored on the PC.
Go to Favourites in File Explorer and click download photos. Select all. Wait for the process to complete.
To remove photos from iPhone, turn off ...
When I was writing this question and was in Language & Region, I tried setting the iPhone Language even though I didn't expect it to do anything. It was already set to English but I went ahead and selected "English (US)". It went to a black screen that said "Setting Language" (or something similar) for a while and when it was done all the phone numbers ...
The paid app iExplorer can show Voice Memos in a Finder-like interface. iExplorer has a free trial which will allow you to verify if the Voice Memo exists as a file on your iPhone. You will need to purchase the app to download the memo file.

As far as your phone is concerned a Google Voice call is no different than any other call, so your only options involve Google Voice settings:
Set Make and receive calls = Prefer Wi-Fi and mobile data. This will make your phone treat the calls as VoIP calls which explicitly say the service they're using. This is how I use Google Voice and the quality is ...
I finally found a solution to this. I removed the CloudFlare 22.214.171.124 app from my phone.
That app provides fast, secure DNS connections. It looks like a VPN profile to your phone, although it is not actually a VPN. Apparently 126.96.36.199 (and maybe some other VPN apps) are breaking CarPlay. I don't know why there is an interaction between networking and CarPlay,...
Apple added a lot of security layers and mechanisms in the last few years to prevent this from happening, including enforcing longer passwords and preventing access via USB/Lightening port without password entry. So the bar for any brute-force password recovery is rather high (which actually is a good thing). There are some companies out there who claim to ...
I have had success with simply mounting and using File Explorer to locate the DCIM directory and copying it out. However, I found it easiest to delete the photos from within the Photos app on the phone itself, despite how tedious that is.
You have to go into the Photos app, select the camera roll album, press 'Select' at the top right, and drag to select ...
I can't answer the part about if what is going on is fishy but I have a similar experience when I log in iTunes with a DIFFERENT account than my phone but this is apparently not your case. As far as the second part of the question no this does not happen to everyone.
How To Stop Ringing Through the Bluetooth Speaker when the Music is On
After connecting your phone to the Bluetooth device, go to your phone’s Settings then Bluetooth Settings. Under the section Bluetooth Paired Devices you will see two settings for the paired devices: phone audio and media audio. Uncheck the phone audio option. This will stop your phone ...
What, precisely, does "reset network settings" do on an iPhone?
resetting network settings will remove all saved WiFi passwords in iCloud keychain, effectively deleting remembered WiFi networks from all your signed in devices. A workaround: turn off iCloud Keychain, then reset network settings, then turn iCloud Keychain back on. Your saved WiFi ...
No, reseting the Network settings only deletes all the network settings on that particular device.
Your different apple devices have your same Apple ID and your iCloud Keychain is synced on all those devices. So keychain syncs the passwords between all those devices.
Apple has always these kind of bugs with their wireless (or even wired) platforms. You just need to force it to connect.
So you can go to sound settings of system preferences and force connect there.
or if you already have the indicator in the status bar , you can option+click on that and force connect from there.
Note that it could either fail because it ...
Strongly recommend not to install such apps via any such (untrusted) medium
There's a likelihood that you may be exposing yourself to innumerable risks. These apps are distributed by gaming the Apple Developer Enterprise license.
They are distributed without going through the standard Apple's App Store Review Process. So it's likely that may be breaking ...
For photos, please ask a separate question. As for notes:
Collaborate with the Apple ID in your new Mac
Save to files as text if the notes don't have any photos, and import them back to Notes on new Mac
Easiest one, set up iCloud notes on the new Mac with the same Apple ID as the iPhone.
Once relevant developer news worth checking is this:
Submit Your Apps to the App Store
Starting March 2019, all new apps and app updates for iPhone, including universal apps, will need to be built with the iOS 12 SDK and support iPhone XS Max.
So yes, you'll be required to add support for iPhone X/XS/XS Max when releasing an update for your app.
First try a soft reset on the iPhone.
Restart your iPhone 8 or earlier or iPod touch
Press and hold the Top (or Side) button until the power off slider appears.
Drag the slider to turn your device completely off.*
After your device turns off, press and hold the Top (or Side) button again until you see the Apple logo.
* With iOS 11 or ...
I've had good luck storing the phone in a bag of rice for a few days.
I've also sped up the process by putting it in the oven on 150 degrees for a bit. (Think leaving the phone on the dash of your car for a few hours.) I wouldn't go above 150 for fear of melting the solder joints though.
I would get a quote and send the device in to a microsoldering capable repair shop. These are highly specialized and not the typical, fix broken screen type shops.
They can and will fix liquid damage / no power on situations as well as make the system healthy enough in a lab setting to get you your data back and not spend even more money fixing it to run ...
In addition to the answer offered by Nimesh, there's also the issue of how you compared the photos.
My assumption is that you were just checking them out on your iPhones, and this probably explains a lot of what you noticed because the display on an iPhone X is leaps and bounds above that used in an iPhone 7. More specifically:
the iPhone 7 incorporates a ...
Assuming both the iPhones are running the same latest version of iOS.
Is the most significant improvement hardware-based, or software-based?
Certainly iPhone X, being a generation newer than iPhone 7 has better hardware. If you compare the camera specs for both the iPhones this is what you get:
Essentially, the specs appear quite comparable. However, ...
This is strange. It seems like some random bit got inverted on my iphone (just a joke but still seems weird). I have to turn off 3D Touch to get the modules to expand again.
This is how I got it to work. I went to Settings->General->Accessibility->3D Touch and turned it off. After doing this, the module with Airplane mode, Wifi enable, etc now expand.
For me, it’s painfully obvious that the call quality is much better on VoLTE and FaceTime audio calls.
There is no indicator, so you’d need your carrier to break that out if you can’t record or tell from the higher quality and larger frequency range / response.
It’s of course possible a carrier could direct you to VoLTE and the codec degrade, so this isn’...
If the certificate has expired, but HSTS is enabled, it is not possible to bypass the error message ‘Safari cannot open the page because it could not establish a secure connection to the server’.
To bypass an expired certificate for a site without HSTS, choose Show Details, then ‘visit this website’.
If the certificate is was revoked, a similar error ...
Yes, it is most likely that this is a hardware problem - although you couldn't really call it a "bug".
As this happened right after the phone was subjected to water, and none of the usual resets of the phone's software helped, it is most likely water damaged. You might think that an inch of water isn't much, but when you go kayaking that water isn't "pure ...
Under iCloud Preferences, optimize iphone storage should be disabled. Turning it off and making sure that the pictures' originals are available(by opening & then trying to edit it) should resolve the issue.
duplicate the note as many times needed.
erase photos in the duplicate notes so that there are 5 or less of them pic 1 to 5 in the first note, pic 6 to 11 in the second - and so on ...
airdrop them to the computer - assemble the notes in one (or put in a folder) on the computer.
It's not a standard service. I would suggest rebooting the iPhone and checking again. Then you can start one app after another until you get to one that opens that port. Possibly the port number is dynamically allocated, so that you wouldn't fall upon the same port number again.
Just modify some value, you can restore the high version backup to the lower version device, it is usually work in minor version updates.
First of all, open the device backup folder in finder and quit itunes, you can see a file name Info.plist. Get a plist editor e.g xcode, change the Product Version 12.3.2 to 12.3.1 Build Version 16F250 to 16F203, save the ...
I don't understand 1 fully but possibilities could be storage, Data not allowed for Photos, Low-Power mode etc.
For 2 and 3, Turn on iCloud photo library in System Preferences and allow Optimise Storage. Then open Photos.app quickly and change the settings to Download originals to the Mac. This will circumvent the said banners about upgrade storage.
For 4. ...
Select a photo, go to another, far away photo, hold Shift and select another. It should download more photos at a time.
This is not a comprehensive solution to such a situation. Just because questioner can select 40-50 photos in browser, I am suggesting a way to select more.
I recommend Firefox for such download. It comes from experience of Firefox Send. ...
I have the exact same issue with only one contact
I am certain the hide notifications is enabled and
Even toggled it on and off to make sure . I deleted the contact as well and verified they are only saved on my phone once . I get notifications from all other contacts except this one
It's called card clash & is a very real issue.
If you carry more than one NFC device in the same container, you don't know which one is going to pay. Most payment devices I've seen in London, UK will detect 'more than one card' & refuse to proceed until you offer up a single card, but you don't know if that will be true for all payment devices. ...
A hard reset (Settings -> General -> Reset -> Erase All Contents and Settings) solved the issue. I made a backup before and used it to restore my phone after the hard reset, which did no recreate the carrier issue.
You may have unknowingly played the video on an AirPlay compatible smart TV present in your network from your iPhone. You can change the playback to your iPhone or stop it.

With Apple subscriptions, you can either cancel them and let the balance play out or if it just renewed, sometimes you can undo the payment.
Apple took the money, so cancel with them. When that is sorted and you are outside the coverage of your last subscription, you will have a chance to start a new subscription type. There is no “change” lanes in my ...
I suggest Outlook for iPhone. This mail client is mature, polished and has a key feature: a setting for users to toggle default image loading behavior:

Apple eventually added the Persian keyboard and language to the list of the iPhone keyboards and preferred languages back in 2017. Now all iPhones with iOS 11+ can add Persian keyboard and or language in their iPhone Settings > General > Keyboards or .. > Language & Region.
Prior to iOS 11, Persian users could install the Arabic keyboard and ...
this clearly comes from your provider.
Most probably it is a new network profile which could not be downloaded.
simply restart the iPhone once. So it dials into the network again and the problem should be solved.
