For the past two weeks I have been getting terrible battery life. This morning my battery charge dropped from 100% to 90% in 2 hours. I have tried double pressing and turning off apps, but that hasn't helped. How do I determine what is using up the battery?
I just downloaded the Find my iphone app to my Windows 7 PC. Where did it go and how do I launch it to locate my iphone 4? I see the file Find iphone 2.0.2.ipa in my Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Mobile Applications directory but nothing happens when I double click it.
I am frustrated that Voice Control only signals that it is ready to listen to me with the double beep. Voice Dial says "Speak Now". Can I use Voice Dial instead of Voice Control to dial handsfree with my iphone 4?

Is it safe to double tap home screen. Hold down icon till it wiggles, and then tap on red minus to shut down an app? I was told by a tech at store this wasn't good? Yet others say it is. I don't want to stress out my phone. What's the best solution?
It's responsive and I've already figured out the assisted home button, but my actual home button seems to be stuck down. It's really hard to push down and double clicking it is almost impossible! How can I unstick it myself??
My 16GB iphone kept saying i was close to my memory limit, i realised once i synced it that a lot of the memory was 'other' i read that if you restored your iphone then backed it up that this would help but unfortunately gave me double the amount of 'other' please help
Just been to the Apple Store in Stratford, London to get my iphone 5 replaced as the sleep wake button stopped responding. I was in and out and i was done. The member of staff who served me seemed very rushed and i didn't have his full attention so when we were going through the process it was a bit more unpleasant than usual. My concern is, when he asked me to erase my phone, i by mistake erased all my settings, rather than erasing all my content and data and due to his rushed manor i didn't get a chance to double check, then my old phone was in a box and under the counter. I didn't realise this had happened till i was on my way home, can anyone tell me that my phones content will be erased? as i dont particulirly want some apple repair guys prank calling all mny contacts, if anyone could reasure me with this, that would be great and put my mind at rest. I did try and erasing it through find my iphone app but of course the sim card needed to be in the phone for it to connect to the internet. Thanks, any help would be very much appreciated! Sam D
I have an app Shop Kick and for some reason today the location services on the app will not shutoff (I have the location arrow on the top right and when I go to settings location servies the arrow is purple next to shop kick app). I have had this app now for 2 years and the location service has never continued to run on the app. I tried doing to double home screen tap and killed the app but it according to my phone it's still using location service even after I killed the app. I then tried to turn off/on my phone but still even after powering on/off it's still claiming to use location service. What's going on?
it's that correct ??? " The Apple A5 is a System-on-a-chip package on package designed by Apple and manufactured by Samsung. It combines an ARM Cortex-A9 with a PowerVR graphics processor. The chip is launched on the market with the release of the iPad 2 tablet. The Apple A5 was also inserted into the iphone 4S and the iPod Touch 5th generation and then the iPad Mini. The successor to the Apple A5 is A5X a simple "evolution" integrated into third-generation iPad. This chip has a CPU "double heart" and a graphical "quad-heart." ????
I've been having a lot of trouble downloading this one app. I've tried restarting my phone and double-tapping the icon. I also thought about deleting it but when I tried there wasn't a little 'x' in the corner so I can't. Any ideas on what I should do?
I have recently jailbroken my ipod, i have installed the localiapstore source and now when i try to purchase some thing from inside the app, it loads then exits the game completely, i have double checked that its on in the settings, it's driving me crazy and i would absolutely love if someone could please help me with this issue, it's crashing everything:(
Voice control is really annoying. I really wish I could turn it off. But I can't. Supposedly I can turn off some of the things voice control does (with limited success) but I can't disable it completely even though I really want to. Really. And a lot of other people want to, too, if the forums are anything to go by. Problems include:- Accidental activation (yes, triple click home is turned off, and yes I have a passcode)- Accidental calling people. The last time this happened I was asleep and I must have accidentally leant on my phone. Somehow it interpreted my breathing as "Facetime (friend's name)". That person lives in another country. It was the middle of the night. Could apple please reinburse me for this ridiculous nighttime overseas call? I also discovered that disabling voice calling with the passcode option doesn't disable facetime. Why not?- Accidentally playing music. This is really awkward especially in quiet serious places when your pocket or handbag starts to sing. There is NO WAY to stop this happening. My phone is on silent!! Still, voice control makes the beep beep noise and plays music when some accidental pressure touches the button. Last time was during a work meeting. If I get fired because of apple...- It hears things I don't say, and doesn't understand what I do say. To the best of my knowledge, I don't say "Facetime (complicated Indian name)" in my sleep. Seriously. But "Next song" should be simple enough! ATTENTION APPLE SOFTWARE ENGINEERS!! Please make an "off" option!! Surely it is a simple thing that will make millions happy. There are a LOT of discussions on the Support Communities about this. Please do something about it. There is a very simple solution, whereby people can choose if Voice Control is something they want to use or not. Please. Pretty please with sugar on top.
instead of the cherpy double beep im getting a low double denied noise and I dont know whats wrong..
My iphone 4s said I was running low on storage, so.. I went to settings>general>usage and began to delete the apps that took up unnecesssary space.. Then I tried to return to my home screen, but my physical and assistive touch home buttons and my lock button did absolutely nothing. I know that it is not a hardware malfuction as when I double click my home button I get zoom/assistive touch options.Im worried that this is a consequence of deleting something I shouldnt have. I am now stuck on my settings page and although I can maneuver around it perfectly fine.. Please help!!
After updating my phone (or backing up through Icloud) it doesn't function properly very difficult to use, scroll doesnt work, there is a voice over for every function that I try, double click is necessary for accessing anything..... Got a loaner phone while my new phone was on order- update loaner phone through Itunes and backed up through ICloud and now the same problem is back after restoring the phone from my old one. It seems like a setting change or software problem, I'm not certain if the problem started when I downloaded the new version of IOS6. I was seeing a few problems before this I believe, phone wasn't always ringing and I was missing calls when I had service and the phone was with me. Any ideas of what I can do to prevent this problem form happening next time I connect my phone and retore. New phone is in my possession, I'm going to wait untill get some feedback before I try and restore the phone..Any advice would be appreciated

Everybody, if you want a simple n definite solution for 3G usage, here's the method.According to apple, 8 hours on 3G usage. I believe the term of usage means actively browsing or anything that keeps your 3G sending n receiving data.Here's the simple way to test the result. double tap home button, end all task.Have your 3G on, u may use safari or Facebook to do the test, if FB, just keep scrolling down and keep de data run. Same goes to safari, continuously surfing and see how many % drops. I've run through this test with all i5 user regardless ios 6.0.1 to 6.1And the result was 1% drop every 2min +/-Simple math - lets make it 3 min so 100% x 3min = 300 min so approximately 5 hours 30min or so.Having said that, it was 5hrs usage, not including 3G on in standby mode.In 6.0.1 the 3G in standby mode is fine, I don't get to notice the battery drop everytime I unlock de phone for useBut in 6.1, so far I tested was the battery drop 1% every 6min in standby mode. As for the wifi, it does fix the sudden network drop but the poor coverage remain. My 5yrs old Nokia E71 have full bars of wifi from my room, but i5 is 1bar, if I'm lucky, sometimes 2bar. The 3G usage tested was done through all the new iphone 5.Kindly post your result and if everyone is experiencing 1% decrease every 2min + then I suggest all of us send a ticket to Apple so that they hear us and make de change instead of playing a fool out of us.So called the worlds most advanced software system, my foot. iphone 5 32GB 6.1
Hi any option to enable airplay on iphone 4 running ios 6.1?I just need airplay to stream music to my speakers.I could not see any option in the setting or by double clicking the home button.I know Airplay mirroring wont work but atleast airplay audio?
Hi, is anyone experiencing no sound control since the upgrade? I no longer have use of the sound radio buttons on the left side of the phone for music or audio playback, nor is there any audio "slider" on the screen in video or audio mode anymore. Even when I double-press the home button when the phone is locked, I am only left with a play button and skip forward/back buttons! Once in a while, in locked mode it appears intermittently like a flicker, but that's it. This is SO frustrating!!! As far a as a media device, my iphone has been reduced to a brick! If anyone from Apple is reading, the battery usage has also gone through the roof. In the last five minutes, I've gone from 53 to 47 percent despite closing all background programs and having the screen off.
hello,I recieved an iphone 4 that had been busted, I fixed it but it will not connect to any cell network (double checked the anntena is connected). I can connect it to WiFi, are they connected (physicaly)? I would appeciate any help. thanksN
I double clicked the home button and deleted all the running apps but that doesn't help. I haven't jailbroken my phone or anything either.
On the iphone 5 I've turned on the Voice Over setting, so my nephew who has CP and is physically challenged can hear the posts in fb and texts. The problem he's having is with doing the double tap fast enough and using three fingers to scroll. He doesn't have the fine motor dexterity to make it work and he is getting very frustrated. He was so excited to finally hear the texts instead of someone reading them to him. I tried to set the physical motor setting, but it didn't work for fb. Any suggestions or experience with this issue you would kindly share would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
I just bought the iphone 5 two days ago. I am having a lot of issues connecting to every other network but my own network at home At home I am using a N900 Cisco Router. The security settings on it are WPA2, My verizon carrier update is version 13.3 and I have updated to IO6.0.2. I have reset the phone to factory defualts, I have reset the network, I have powered off the phone and done everything I could to get them to work on this network. Personal. Now I have been to my girlfriends parents and many other places that are public and even after double checking the password. the iphone 5 From Trouble shooting: I have noticed that the iphone 5 doesn't seem to like many security options on the routers. Even on my new router I tried several different security options and it seemed to like WPA2 the best. Othrwise I was getting major issues. The iphone would connect sometimes only to be slow and not connect. The wifi signal would keep being scanned and would go out and come back in. The signal strength also qould keep fluctuation even when near the router. My brothers same andriod device was doing the same thing. My brothers iphone 5 was doing the same thing when using the different networks. Apple there is a major problem here that needs to be addressed when refering to wifi. Considering most carriers now charge for data it is important that if I have access to all the wifi networks I can connect too. This is a major issue that needs to be resolved and looking at the forums it is not an isolated incident. Recomendations: People who call in with this issue, need to have phones replaced if not able to patch, Since no patch exists at the moment, it would be prudent to offer people who are having trouble a credit towards their wireless bill by working with cell providers and to have apple issue a version of an RMA number. Until the issue is resolved. I have 17 days to return my phone to verizon and I am going to wait to hear back. My girlfriend is in the market for a new phone and we can't have issues with a wifi connection especially when charges are going to ensue if we go over our data. Plus the unavailability of a network in areas my cell provider is not able to help with is important. We as apple users need immediate attention to this matter and it is not a matter of how the phone scans for networks. It is an issue with connectivity and how it is communicating with certain encryptions with the routers. Fix need asap. This issue is also not localized to the iphone 5 as it is happening on the Ipad 4
The home button on my ip5 is consistently inconsistent. Sometimes there is no respones from depressing it. Sometimes a single press behaves like a double press. I've tried the recalibration procedure but seemed to have no effect. Is there any information from the company about the source of this problem or resolution?
Been having a few issues with iOS6, First: Earbud headphones - The middle select button on the earbuds is now no longer working. I can press it once to start music or open up voice activation. But I can no longer double click to change tracks. Its not an issue with the earbuds as i have tested them on an iOS5 device. Volume control works fine. Second: Music controls on the lock screen do not work. I can double click the home button and the controls apear but pressing play does NOTHING! also double taping the home button once the screen is unlocked and swiping to the right to get up itunes controls, pressing play there also does nothing. I have to go into the music app to control my music......annoying when its in my pocket an i want to control it! Also when locking the screen the album artwork is no longer displayed as the background image. is anyone else getting these issues??? HELP!!!!!
Has anyone else have this issue after the latest update? When I try to open a app (even happened when trying to look at About in the General/Settings) It gets stuck loading and doesn't open. I have closed the app and reopened, double clicked the home button to close it in the background; several times a day I am having to rest my phone and even retored it, which helped for a day. So far no battery issue. Since getting the 5 it drains faster than my 4s and I've just dealt with it. One other issue that I noticed a few others have is my camera (? shutter) froze after taking a picture, didn't save it to camera roll then crashed.
My iPod touch screen has a fault exactly where you press the red minus to close the apps. I there another way to close the apps without having to delete them then redownload them onto the iPod? Thanks for any advice!
I noticed that my "other" capacity (orange bar) was at 5.3 GB when looked at in iTunes. I cleaned off many of my apps and data, even going so far as to delete text messages and old voice mail. the "other" remained the same size. I read several blogs which mentioned this problems and said the only solution was to restore the phone. I have done that, and was surprised to find that when it was over the "other" capacity DOUBLED to over 10 GB.I have nothing on my phone at this point except 60 contacts and the basic apps that come with the phone. What is going on?
My iphone 4S is stuck on large type and I can't return it to its normal type. How can I do that? I double clicked on the screen and it is still large.
Ever since I updated my iphone 4S to iOS 6, the App Store has not been showing updates properly. Periodically, it will show a badge indicating that there are updates for apps available. But when I open the App Store, I see this: If I tap on another tab, like Charts or Featured, and then come back to Updates, it still says all apps are up to date. I have to force quit the App Store app (double tap Home button, tap and hold on App Store icon then tap the minus sign, then hit the Home button again) and then open it again in order to see this: A similar thing also happens sometimes when there is no badge, but I decide to go in to the App Store to manually check for an update. It will show no badge on the Updates tab, and the main screen says all apps are up to date. But when I force quit App Store, and open it again, it will show updates are available. Prior to iOS 6, we could tap on the Updates button and it would force a refresh and check for updates again. That no longer seems to be the case. That in addition to it intermittently or incorrectly showing updates makes it difficult to know if app updates are actually available. Is this just my iphone or is anyone else experiencing something similar? Either way, does anybody have a solution?
I live in the UK. I currently own an iphone 4S, I'm on contract with T-Mobile so I wish to keep my contract running. The prices for apple products in the UK are unbelievably high. I was wondering if it would be possible to pay for an iphone 5 and and iPad mini with the US prices and have it shipped over to the UK? As this would be a cheaper alternative. I would be paying more than double with the UK prices in comparison to the US prices. Please respond as soon as possible.
I was analyzing some iphone 5 logs and I noticed a different behavior comparing to other iPhones I had in the past (4 and 4S). Applications are launched even after manually terminated and hardly reset. In the iphone 4 (iOS 6.0.1) and iphone 4s (iOS 6.0.1), no applications are loaded after doing this procedure, different from the iphone 5 (iOS 6.0.2 and iOS 6.0.1) where all the applications previously terminated are restarted. Do the test: Quit all applications manually (double click the HOME button, tap and hold any application until the minus sign appears and click this sign to kill all processes / applications) (more information: http://www.imore.com/ daily-tip-close-backgrounded-app-ios-5)After that, do a Hard Reset (Press and hold the Sleep and Home button, when the Apple logo appears release both buttons) (http://www.wikihow.com/Hard-Reset-an-iphone more information)Now, after the iphone start double-click the home button and see if the applications closed previously have been started without your intervention. Regards.Rodrigo Guimaraes
I've had my iphone for approx 2-3 days now and whe I got it, I installed iOS 6.0.1. immediately, everything was fine, my battery life is quite good when not using 3G but WiFi instead. However, after a day of having the iphone 4S, in the evening I went onto my camera and took a picture, my screen went black and RGB lines went through it and flickered back onto normal screen again. I've noticed it's becoming increasingly hot when I'm only running 2 apps (cos i force shut down apps by double clicking home) last night it actually burnt my hand, like a scold. i couldn't touch it because it just overheated so much it was too hot to touch. I don't know whether to go back to TMobile where I got the phone from or go into an Apple shop. My mother even says that I need to send it off. But I've been reading forum topics about it and apparently it's been happening to alot of people with 4/4S on iOS 6.
How can I tell what apps were run recently on my iphone. Idea is to double check child's use of apps (both type and if possible length of time used).This is an issue when phone access is to be granted, but trust has been shattered in the past and we are re-building it with child ... :-(Of course, one way to control app use is to just delete the app (at least there's still control of the Apple ID)! The child already knows how to close apps (double hitting home button then shutting down icons). On desktop you can run Terminap app and then command "last" to see usage of computer in general (and under Settings -> Users you can get a log of apps used, I think). Looking for similar on iphone. iPad too ... but that might be same as desktop - have to check. Native or 3rd party ... happy to pay! This is not just a website surfing issue. Apps in general.
Anybody out there have any idea why -- after a IOS6 update (6.0.1) -- that my wife can't close apps on her iphone 4S? When you double click the home button to see which apps are active and then you hold one down, they all wiggle and you see the red dash button, which normally allows you to close out the apps you don't want. But hers keep wiggling and won't let you close them out. You press the red dash and nothing happens. Her mail won't shut down. Her Safari. Other apps she downloaded from iTunes, such as games and Twitter, won't shut down. Notes, messages, whatever. None of them will shut down. Her battery keeps draining. Help! We'd appreciate any assistance anyone can provide.
I have to double click my buttons before it accepts my inputs (i.e. passcode numbers). Just started today. Have powered it down severla times. The screen seems to be locked also, will not let me navagate up or down with finger. Help!
Whenever im on 3G i get only 1 signal bar. When Edge is active or if i deactivate 3G it shows a full 5 bars. Its the same on both iphone 5 and 4S. Does anybody else experience this? Appreciate any help
I activated something by mistake on my iphone 4 tonight and now i cannot deactivate it. Something to do with voice controls i believe. Its under the settings and now whenver i want to type a text or do anything on my phone i have to tap the screen 3xs to activate the icon. I cannot even scroll down on a page. I am unaware of how to fix this and need help as soon as possible please!
Every now and then, I pull my iphone out of my pocket, and I can only see 9 icons, all about double their usual size. What is going on?
Beofre i had a chance to update my iphone yesterday, i started getting lines on my iphone. Im unable to scroll the screen, you have to double click everything just to open an app, i cant close my apps. Can someone tell me what i can do to get my phone back into normal running mode please!!
Hi all, I am trying to add my add my apple Id (email address) in order for me to send and receive iMessage. But when ever I am prompted for user name nd password of my apple Id , I get a message saying that my username or password is incorrect. I have double checked my user name and password. Infant I use it fine in app store and to log in here on the web. But the problem is when using iMessage. Noticed this problem after upgrading to ios6. Anyone facing similar issue or suggestions ? Thanks.
i know what youre talking about, i have the same issue sometimes. as soon as you go into cellular data network double tap home so youre multi tasking then try. its really kind of hit and miss with ios 6 and fixing apn settings
The side switch on the side of my iphone 4 controls my screen orientation like on an iPad and the only way I can switch between ringer or vibrate is double tap the home button slide it right and turn the mute button on and off. I recently updated to iOS 6 and didn't notice it till them. Please help. It gets aggravating to have to go through the process I do to turn it on and off.
I have an iphone 5. On or about Sept. 28th, I started to notice that for some of my text messages (to be Android and other iphone users) were displaying the message, "delivery failed". So I'd resend. As it turns out, even though my phone was saying "delivery failed", the texts were indeed going through. Those whom I texted informed me that they were getting double messages from me. This meant they were getting the original msg that displayed the "delivery failure" notice AND the resend. So to test this out, I did some texting to different people until I got the "delivery failure" notice, but I didn't resend. And sure enough, they were in fact getting the texts even though the phone said "delivery failure". Anyone else experiencing this? I'm assuming since they are in fact going through, it may not be a carrier issue, but a phone issue.
Without warning, the text of incoming emails is suddenly very small. The body of text is crowded into the left side of the screen. And, old emails in the inbox are exhibiting the same behavior. If you double tap the text, it resizes to fill the screen, but you shouldn't have to double tap every message to get it to read properly. I have tried accessibility function and increased the font size, but that has not helped. Reading email in landscape helps. I recently turned on iCloud but then turned it off with respect to emails. Cannot figure out why this is suddenly happening. Help.
Hi. I just noticed a problem with texting from my iphone 4. As I type, the letters that appear are randomly correct and incorrect. It starts new lines, puts periods where I didn't (not after double spacing) and just enters random letters, capitalized and not. I can get it to type the correct letter about 1 in 5 tries, but it will then type in sometimes 5 letters that I didn't type and when I try to backspace, sometimes it lets me, sometimes not. I checked to see if there were any problems writing an email but there weren't. Any ideas why this is happening? I have it in an Otterbox but it has been dropped a few times. Do you think it finally started getting brain damage?
My wife and I received our iphone 5's just 3-days ago and we love them so far. The problem is as follows: On my iphone, when I search the App Store, I get results and am able to view them.On her iphone, when I search the App Store, I get suggestions, but nothing loads. I just see a spinner in my top bar. Please note the following:Both of us have identical iPhones (iphone 5 with iOS6)We share the same iTunes accountWe are using the same WiFi networkWe are with the same phone companyShe can search using Safari and install apps once they have been foundAll other sections of the App Store work findI have automatically install new apps set to ON on both bevicesSwitching off WiFi does not help (searching on 3G or LTE)Signing out of iTunes on one phone and searching does not helpRestarting the phone does not help (same with a DHR - a double hard reset)Quitting App Store and loading it again does not help (closing from switcher) I'm thinking I might have to do a fresh iOS install on the phone. Any suggestions?
