When I sync my iphone 4s or my ipad in itunes with the lates upgrade in itunes I don't see how I can organize my apps, to move them from one screen to the other. I've looked all over itunes as the device is syncing and I see nothing, use to be on the right side and you could drag from one area to the other. Anyone know?
Hello! I live in Russia and love Apple very much, have many different products and never had any problems with them. And now I decided to buy a new Iphone 5 and wasn't lucky. I bought it on 3.05.2013 in normal shop, then turned out that wi-fi and bluetooth are not working and the phone eats battery very fast. Shop doesn't want take it back, official services don't want to repair it for free, because it was made for USA. I really don't know what to do:( To buy android? Hope you can help me somehow, the best solution for me is to change it. Serial № of the phone: F17KF2E5DTTR; Part №: MD296LL/a; IMEI: 013428008469809. Thanks!
My phone won't power on. I tried holding down the power & home button for minutes at a time. Tried charging with multiple charges from multiple outlets and sources. The apple advice is telling me to upgrade the software on my phone. How am I supposed to do this if the phone won't turn on? Am I missing something here?
I have an iphone 3g 4.2.1 and want to install Skype, it keeps telling me to upgrade to 4.3. How can I do this upgrade?
I have an older iphone 4s in hand with iOS 5 on it. I know that the current iOS is 6.1.4. Still, on my laptop is an older 6.1.2 iOS in iTunes since my last download. Is it possible for me to choose to upgrade to the older iOS, instead forcing to download the latest software? It is true that Apple always forced us to be on the latest iOS software? Thank you in advance for any intelligent inputs and thoughts.
I'm planning on buying the iphone 5 because I have an upgrade available. I have never owned an iphone before, but I do have an 2gn ipod which has 8 gbs and has 2 apps and have used 5.5 of my 6.84 gbs available with songs(1175 songs). I have also have 30 photos, and have 1.5 gbs left to fill. If I do get the iphone 5 I will not put music on it, because I have my ipod. I would like to have a lot of apps though, because I like to test them out, and give reviews on them. I have a fair amount of photos in my current phone(around 400), but the camera quality is not that good, and I think because the iphone 5 have a lot more gbs than my current one that I will want to take more than I usually do(although I would probably upload them onto my computer and delete the originals off my phone). I don't have that many contacts and I have a tablet where I play my games and movies on, so that is not an issue. I know this is a bit long but I really want to make the right choice because I plan on having this phone until my next upgrade which is in 2 years. I want to know if 16gbs should be enough or if should I go with the 32gbs? OR if I should just wait for the newer version to come out, and if this is worth to buy. I would also would like to know what the perks and downsides are too. Thank you for your patience and time.

I have tried to download ios 6.1.3 on both my iphone and through my laptop, the 'download and install' option on the software update area is greyed out and not 'live' when i tap. when i try to upgrade and install on my laptop it says 3 hours remaining to instal, why?.
I do not so much have a question, but a statement: I did the upgrade to iOS 6 last night. I had to delete a lot of apps to make room for the upgrade and did a small icloud back up to save space. But, after waiting and seeing the upgrade time kept going up and up, I just went to bed. Woke up in the middle of the Night to check and my phone said to connect to iTunes. When I did, it told me I had to restore my phone. So I had no choice because, it would not leave the connect to iTunes message on my screen otherwise. This is a horrible glitch!
I am tired of my iPhone 4S already after suffering through issues upon issues with the device. My screen is having issues now where at a moment's chance it goes dim. I have to reset the device to get the brightness back to normal. I've tried restoring without any luck of this resolving. Another gripe I have is that I'm continuing to have issues with apps like Mail, Safari, and other Apple installed apps just continuously force closing. I've been sending emails back and forth on my iPhone only to have Mail force close and I lose everything in my message. The phone acts sluggish and performs worse than previous 4S devices I've owned. I've had issues upon issues across multiple iPhone 4S devices. The device I have currently is my 5th iPhone 4S and even tho its less than a few months old after it was sent to me after multiple filler iPhones of refurb models from the store, I continue to experience issues that make me use my iPhone less and less as it becomes more unreliable with the crashes and multiple restores. My closest store is not within close distance so that's made owning an iPhone with issues difficult as not every thread on the communities forum touch on half the problems I continue to have. Thankfully at least Siri knows where I'm located compared to my other devices where she always thought I was in Pittsburgh where I picked the phone up at my nearest store over an hour and a half away. Now everything just seems to be more of a deficiency with iOS and the hardware than anything. Obviously there must be something wrong with the latest stocks of 4S devices if my issues are continuing. When I restore I'm always setting up as a new device. I'm never downloading or redownloading anything from my Mac or PC. Everything is just redownloading apps from iCloud within the App Store and having a ton of missing photos in my photo stream. I just don't understand what is wrong with my iPhone. I never experienced these kind of issues with my iPhone 3GS so its hard to swallow how terrible the 4S has performed with every single device I keep getting. I'm at a loss on what I can do. Does anyone have any tips I should try that Apple hasn't provided me with to fix or at least band-aid the issue long enough till I can upgrade with my carrier?
After upgrade the iOS, my new iphone 4S is consuming too much battery. In less than 10 minutes, I lost 5% of battery. I wasn't using any APP. Is there anyone having this problem too and how can i fix it? Thanks

Is there a way to automatically backup text messages to gmail like the android sms backup+?
I updated my Iphone 4 to 6.1.3 . since the upgrade I have not been able to use any of my navigation programs. I need these to work. I have tried Waze, TeleNav, Google Maps. Is there a fix for this?
I had always encountered error -5000 while trying to upgrade the OS via iTune. I had tried numerous time and it's still the same error message..any help would be very much appreciated.
My iphone 5 has the latest ios 6.1.3 and the battery life is hit and miss. The phone has been factory wiped in itunes and re set up. It sometimes will drop 50 percent on its own in a couple hours. If i do the home button and power reset on the phone the battery will report better. Maybe its a software glitch. I was also disappointed with the fact that i bought a high end home stereo and the iphone doesnt support the new apt-x codec yet their laptops do? Why is this. Its no wonder apple stocks are falling. I have owned every iphone since the 3gs and really have not seen any real improvements other than processors and screens. Poor customizations, lack of ability to personalize the phone and really nothing to keep me with buying another apple. This is unfortunate as the hardware is great but the feature set just hasn't improved in 5 years. In fact i think it has gotten worse. Being a communications tech i used to use wifi apps for testing signal strength on installed accesspoints and those apps got stripped be ause of apples sdk or whatever it was. The slew of apps on the android market for this is staggering. Now i see that motorola, htc and samsungs are all supporting the apt-x codec but no apple. Gps apps are poor and apple maps for our area are black and whit and half are covered in clouds from the satellite view so you cant see the streets anyways. As a business phone the iphone is looking less imoressive day by day. As a music player its also now being outdone. I hope apple takes some of this to heart and really does something impressive to IOS 7 to restore faith in its fans. And maybe some day we will be able to use one of our songs for a ring tone instead of having to pay. My old cdma phone even had this ability.
Hi, I just upgraded to IOS 6.1.4 this morning no issues upgrade went well. Now My Email Push Notfication is not working. 1. Bussiness Gmail Account - Configured as Exchange2. Hotmail Account - Configured as Exchange Both Account - Push is ON if some one send email i am not getting it. I have to manually open the Native Email client then i can see. Restarted the IPhone Twice. Any one facing similar issue?
my screen is broken on my iphone 4s and the hard drive how much would it cost for me to go to apple and upgrade it to the 5?
Okay, so lets see if this works. So I've had my iphone 4 for about a year and a half, I've never really had issues beside the normal glitching and having calls drop here and there. Recently I've had an issue with my iphone connecting with just one individual. Yes, I know it sounds weird but keep reading. I have been able to make calls and recieve phone calls fine, however I cannot with just one single individual. They to also only have the same problem with me, however the only difference is they can hear me but I cant hear them or anything. We're able to text and send picture messages without any issues. Now sometimes when I try to call them, itll ring twice and then the line just goes dead, but thats usually them picking it up. I cannnot hear them at all. I've already done the reset on my phone and I've already contacted apple about this issue and their about as lost as I am because it doesnt make sense that this is only happening with one individual. I've also blew out the speakers and such like people have suggested. I use my head phones that came with my speaker, and ive connected and reconnected them incase my iphone thought they were plugged in. Let me give you a little bit more info. They have an android phone, we have the same carrier which is verizon and they live in another state (not sure if thats helpful). I'm completely lost because this has been going on for about 4 days now and its driving me crazy. This happened a few weeks ago, however it magically fixed its self ( im thinking it was because I had bad service). If anyone has any solutions that might help, please, please let me know.
I use iPhone 4 32GB. I upgrade the iOS from 5.1.1 to 6.1.3. On the previous iOS, i don't have any problem. But after i upgrade my phone, my right headset doesn't work. I've clean the jack, plug, etc; I've tried to change the sound settings, music setting, etc, but it doesn't change anything. My headset still mute, exactly the right side. The left one is still okay. I've tried to plug another jack and nothing change. Anybody help :'(
Hello everyone, I have an iPhone 4 running on iOS 4.2.1 which I need to upgrade. With all the new iOS versions released and the reviews I've been reading, I'm kinda lost as to which verion will work best with my phone. Any help??
Recently my iPhone 4s stopped charging via the wall charger and my car charger, I have experimented with various cords and wall charging units, and it still does not charge. I recently took my iPhone to the Mall of America Apple Store and they said that the problem is with the device and since the device is out of warranty, I could use my upgrade and "upgrade" to the iPhone 4 for free, I could get a replacement 4s for $200, etc. However, since I am unemployed and my contract is almost up with Sprint, I do not want to spend that kind of money. The Sprint store says the problem is with the cords, but since I have tried multiple cords, I suspect the Apple Store is right. Has anyone here experienced this issue, if so were you able to fix and how did you?
Hello, I have previously used Shoutcast radio player on android and I liked the fact that it showed the name of the song playing. I downloaded Shoutcast for my Iphone and that feature has been removed it seems. So my question is this: Is there a preferabley free music app that will allow me to search for my genre of music and play that station and list names of songs? My generes of music are Metallica Stations and Soundtrack Stations. That's what I like to listen to mostly. So is there any app out there or am I stuck with Shoutcast until they update the app? Thank you for your assistance
The option to update without the computer (Over the air) was made available with iOS 5. If your iDevice is using a version of iOS lower than 5, you will need to use iTunes on your syncing computer to perform the upgrade. Use the Apple link below as a guide for the upgrade. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4972 Also read the instructions from the section entitled "Update your device using iTunes" at the link below. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4623
Please help. I've just returned from overseas having taken a lot of photos on my new iPhone 5. I've stupidly moved to upgrade the software on the device without saving these. Now the phone is promoting me to plug into iTunes and when I do it says the phone is detected in recovery mode and has to be restored. Is there any way I can get to these images without losing them?! :( I think I have additional storage however can't be sure images were selected to back up.
In Australia, how much would the gap cost to upgrade an iPhone 4S 16g with an iPhone 4S 32g? I really need more space, I didn't know that 1,000+ photos would take up this much room!
attempting to upgrade too IOS6 download ok, start 'install' now phone stuck on 'Verifying update'. Any advice please. Cheers Maxwell
Hello everyone, I have my Iphone 5 upgradet with the latest upgrade ios 6.1.3 and i have a problem with this update. In DENMARK, TELENOR carrier has a problem with coverage network on 3G and this upgrade is not so good for this carrier, so that's why i need help to downgrade ios 6.1.3 to 6.1.2. When you have ios 6.1.1 or 6.1.2 you can switch between using 3G or not, after you make the latest upgrade ios 6.1.3 you can not switch between 3G and not becouse you have LTE and i can not choise to use the Iphone on 2G. Please if anyone can help me with this Thx alot George
I'm new to the iphone; I switched from android. I'm trying to find a data app similar to what I used on my old phone. It would show me the data amount, allow me to put in the data limit and start date. It would also show me the apps that were using the data. The app was Onavo count I think. I tried the iphone version and its not the same. It wants me to set up a VPN?-is that safe? I just want a good data app that is accurate and allows me put in my data limit and start date -bill cycle date. Is there an app free or paid; free hopefully that will do that? Thank you for your help.
Hi,I have notice that with the new upgrade of iOS 6.1.3 in my new iPhone 5 the battery duration it is decrease a lot with the same use.

Someone have the same problem with the upgrade.Thank you so much for your answer.
My iPhone 4S screen is broken. There are only blue and black lines after I dropped it. Should I mail it to apple and have then fix it for $199 or is there anyway I pay an amount to upgrade to the IPhone 5? Please help
I would like to upgrade to an iphone 4 but am unsure if my australian crazy johns flatchat sim will work after cutting it to the correct size. has anyone done this and did you have any problems. Did you need to purchase the phone from a specific shop. Cheers.
Hey everyone. I have an iPhone 4S that needs replacing due to obvious hardware issues (shuts down randomly on its own). I have shown the panic.plist reports that it generates on another forum and they have confirmed the kernel and hardware problem. Since replacing it is the only way to go for me, I was wondering whether Apple still offers the option to upgrade to the next model when going to replace a phone with warranty. What I mean is, if I go to an Apple Store and ask to replace my handset for a new one (with my warranty/receipt) will I be offered to upgrade to an iPhone 5 for an additional fee? Can I ask for this option? Thanks!
A few days ago I updated my iphone to 6.1.3 the there is no sound coming out to the speaker. My warranty is out for 8 days. They have asked me to restore and reset but it does not help. Rep said if I pay xxxx Baht, I will get a new iphone but i don't think it is my problem why I need to pay for the new phone as it is not broken. It is working ok but after upgrade software then it did not work.Who will be responsible to this? I have checked some guys have the same problem, Apple rep, could you help fix it.Thanks.
I purchased an I Phone 4 in Dec 2012. Since then the phone has been replaced 3 times due to variuos issues like screen flickering, applications crashing etc. However, the issue still remains. The said issue has been escalated by the concerned person at the Authorised Service Station of Apple to higher authorities. In a situation like this where an issue is not resolved even after replacing the device 3 times, whether Apple will refund the purchase price of the phone or will upgrade me to the latest technology available in the Market ie an I Phone 5?
i have love year in Apple Product im from PUerto Rico. But I like Something New.. something more technology something more to future. i talking about to IOS.. i look first impresion is the same button and the same apps appearance. i like something like android and the same time like APPLE.. change home visualization to something New. the first: the button to home.. that very old fashion.. no good.. somehting like apple LOG and touch to make the function like the button is more better..Second: Change some IOS and Put something new, more technology, something more future.. i talking about but in my mind i see the icons news the form to see the Screen. The First impression to see iphone 5.. i no more like that 4S.. the specify no like.. is something with some errors... the videos no have the better definition. the imagen look distortion
i have upgraded and did a back up from my 4s but when i restored to iphone 5 it has lost all of my contacts, emails and messages anyone know how i can retrieve the info? i still have the 4s so i can also do another back up i guess, is that worth trying?
regarding not being able to make an in-app purchase: all it says is that i can't make In-app purchases at this time. Any suggestions? I'm new to the apple world. I just switched from an android today.
