I would say none of the above. Usually the situation you describe is due to the app saving information into the Keychain on the phone. When you uninstall the app, the Keychain data is not deleted. Therefore when the app is reinstalled, it can load in the data stored earlier. I assume the app in question really isn't called "MyApp", so that makes it ...

After a few attempts to revive it, eventually, I gave up and brink it to the lab where after a few hours I was told that a problem is that the iPad originally was locked for some US cellular operator, but in order to make it work in my country someone did workaround (some magic) and sold it to me and everything worked like unlocked iPad then I successfully ...

Yes… but… In theory you can connect to any server you have the address for - but in practise getting through to your own home network requires a lot of additional work. You first need to know your home public IP address, which may change on a regular basis at the whim of your ISP, or may be unreachable if it is behind a CGNAT (Carrier-grade Network Address ...

Devices can see each other when connected on an iPhone 13, software version 15.1.1. I can login from my Mac to a connected Raspberry Pi via ssh pi@raspberrypi.local while both are connected to the phone's hotspot.

appleinsider: There have been sporadic reports recently of the new features not showing up for some users and others seeing the left-behind alerts as "not supported" on AirPods Pro. Apple will likely issue a bug fix eventually, but in the interim, the best solution appears to be a reset and re-pair procedure on impacted AirPods. Failing that, try ...

When you import these photos over USB as JPEGs they will be transcoded as they're transferred. This means that photos are not stored twice on the phone in two different formats, and they're also not all batch-converted as soon as you plug in the device. In this particular case, you definitely want to download the .HEIC file. Even though it is smaller, it is ...

Doing it over USB is incredibly difficult, I've had those same issues where it won't transfer more than a few at a time. In fact, I've been having that issue since way back when I owned an iPhone 4S ten years ago. Using something like Readdle's Documents app or something like LanDrop works well for transferring media over the web. There are lots of options ...

Alright, it seems I've made a bit of a deduction mistake - turns out changing "Automatic" to "Keep Originals" under Photos in the Settings app makes all the difference. Depending on which option is checked, the files will show up differently in Windows Explorer. "Automatic" makes them show up as .jpg files. "Keep ...

I have dozens of folders with that many files working very well with iCloud. If you can’t get the google drive service to work reliably, paying for one month of iCloud would get the job done without needing a computer. We also use Finder to sync files, many more than that so I don’t see any issues inherent with the OS or design since this is small size of ...

The MAC address shown in WiFi settings is the address announced to the router, not the iPhones actual MAC address. You can find your iPhones MAC address(es) in "Settings > General > About".

Yes, when you choose "Erase All Content and Settings" it does not mean that the phone is literally wiped of all files and databases/settings. Rather it means that all user-related content and settings are erased. You're still left with thousands of files for the operating system itself, built-in apps, and databases for settings (now set a default ...

iOS supports not only the general clipboard (technically, the general UIPasteBoard), but also named UIPasteBoards.

Go to one of many iCloud DNS bypass pages, fetch an IP address suitable for your region (for better performance, but any IP address will do) Change your DNS setting to the IP address above. Try rebooting the device and/or pressing "next" and "back" until iOS opens the web browser. In the web browser, get to "open URL" page. Find ...

A bit roundabout but possible: From gallery, select the photos > tap Share > Save to Files. Go to Files app > tap More (3-dots icon) > Select > select the photos > tap More (3-dots) > Compress. This will zip them. Attach the zip file to Gmail and send. The recipient can download and unzip it to get HEIC images.

You have several 'translations' that need to happen in order to achieve this. First - your Bose system runs line level, balanced. Your phone as it stands needs mic level, unbalanced. Unbalanced is 'regular home audio' - 2 wires, one signal (hot) the other ground [people tend to think of them as positive (+ve) & negative (-ve), but that's not truly the ...

You could try shrinking the partition containing NTFS volume and create a new FAT32 writable volume in the free space.

macOS is able to read NTFS by default, but it doesn't come with write support. There are third-party solutions for that, like NTFS-3G (there are multiple questions dealing with this product here on Apple.SE). If you are using this SSD only on your Mac, using NTFS would be a poor solution (performance, feature support). Instead, just reformat the SSD with ...

This happened to me when I changed my Apple ID password. I updated my password on both my iPhone and on my Mac but the phone number never even showed up as an option on the Mac. I then went to my iPhone under settings and messages and toggled the iMessage and Send as SMS switches. Immediately a message popped up on my Mac asking if I wanted to associate ...

These are the top most reasons for iPhone to ask for passcode instead of Face ID: You're wearing a face mask. The device has just been turned on or restarted. The device hasn’t been unlocked for more than 48 hours. The passcode hasn’t been used to unlock the device in the last six and a half days Face ID hasn't unlocked the device in the last 4 hours.

Here is the solution: Go to Settings. Now scroll down until you find the app for whom you want to stop wifi (eg. Facebook) Click on it. Toggle off the option which says local network. Now app(eg. Facebook) would not be able to use wifi network. You can also Toggle off the mobile data there.

I have the workaround for that: Go to Settings Go to privacy Go to location services Scroll down Go to system services Find the option named as "setting time zone" Toggle it off Now when you will change time zone and then click set automatically, it will not change your time zone and time will sync

Tell Siri to "learn how to pronounce coles" or if she has mispronounced it already, you can say, "That's not how you say that." Siri will quickly get over any embarrassment and ask, "OK, how do you pronounce the name (coles)?" Say the name correctly, and Siri will listen and offer you a few pronunciation choices. You can play ...

Wow! I finally got it but it was extremely counterintuitive. I had to go to the Ringtone settings page on my iphone 13 and there was a section with "Store" with two buttons, "Tone Store", and something like "Download all downloadable ringtones from the store". I had no interest in purchasing ringtones from the store, so I didn't ...

I believe Verizon in the US keeps their gates shut and you need their help to activate devices. There’s probably no harm in swapping the sim, especially if you have an alternate way to call them / get support if your phone stops working. https://www.verizon.com/solutions-and-services/activate-my-device/

I have seen phones that need a restore on occasion. I would do that and when you sign in - do not restore any backup. I also would not install any third party apps, sign in to any cloud accounts and just use Safari for an hour to see if you feel it’s substantially better with a clean restore. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204184 Erase all contents is ...

The ports are "filtered", which means nmap tried to send a packet to these ports but did not receive a reply. This is as it should be. Why nmap is listing them like this at all depends on the arguments you have passed to nmap, AFAIK. By contrast, the two other states are: "open": With TCP, a SYN packet got at least an ACK answer back. ...

In addition to the On/Off state for iCloud, there are also individual On/Off sliders for every service (or app) that makes use of iCloud. So if your concern is about putting data in the cloud, simply make sure all those services/apps are off.

The phone will still have trickle charging while power off. So don't worry you can go ahead and turn it off while charging. It wont hurt the battery as the trickle charging still function.

they go in this weird photos library file structure which is harder to extract One you get them in the Photos app, you can drag them to a folder in finder, and they'll just be there as files without any weird directory structure. Or File > Export

You can un-check the "Share Focus State" option in the "Notifications & Focus" preference panel to prevent your phone from going into focus mode. Note: I also find it helpful to turn on focus between 5am and 4:59am, so it's effectively always turned on: Unfortunately this does not disable all notifications, though. Bluetooth ...

Lmao - for real I had the same issue as yours . I was so confused that I literally went to apple store to figure out what’s wrong . You won’t believe what actually was the issue . It showed that my backup file was 146 GB ( my phone’s space is 128 GB ) . And that was the reason the backup was not possible . So I think even you’re facing the same issue . We ...

iPhones require a connection in order to set up, because the set up process requires the phone check in with Apple, even if it isn't set up on a carrier yet. You can either use the carrier (if you have an active SIM), WiFi, or a computer. If you don't have any of these there is not a way to set up the device.

It seems you may just be lacking a working DNS configuration. If iCloud Private Relay is on, your DNS queries from Safari should go through the relay, not go straight to your ISP. IF they go to your ISP via the relay, the ISP's DNS servers are not likely to respond. Why? Typically, it's advised when setting one up to serve a network's own users, to NOT ...

Yes. Transferring or restoring the phone with a backup will also pass on the Screen Time restrictions.

Turn a MacBook into an AirPlay receiver w/ macOS Monterey Fortunately, there is now a better way.

No. While you can share your iPhones location with your iPad via various Apps or the native Find My feature, navigation Apps will rely on the location of the iPad and the iPad cannot use the iPhone locations as if it were the iPads own location.

Solution which worked for me: Open Music app Sign-in with Apple ID Accept agreement which would not initiate in appstore. Open AppStore & sign in with same Apple ID.

If the cable is USB and Lightning standards compliant, there should not be a problem. You haven't included a vendor name, product name, or similar, so it's hard to say something specific about this cable - but it looks like it might be a cheap "China knockoff" and perhaps the vendor does not specify that it is compliant with those standards. If you'...

Man, I understand your problem - even I used to have similar problems. But you can try this trick for short words. Instead of pronouncing the whole word, just read out the letters. For example, instead of Coles, spell C-O-L-E-S and it works just fine. I know this isn’t the best solution, but it works fine for short words. Also, try changing the Siri language ...

This is finally possible with iOS 15 and the new Focus feature, in particular for my question, the Sleep focus. You can follow the instructions on Apple's site to set up the Sleep focus and allow notifications to ring through from either selected contacts or selected applications. This is exactly the functionality I needed!

The OS on each device manages which playback options and Bluetooth codec are selected. It’s possible you have an older Bluetooth module on one device vs the other, but we’d need to know the exact generation of hardware and nail down the iOS version on both devices. You should be able to get a quality reading on both by controlling the audio file quality on ...
