Like countless other iPhone users, I dropped my beloved iPhone 4S into a river while I was kayaking. It was in a plastic bag and when I managed to find it at the bottom of the river I pulled it out and checked to see if it worked. The screen still powered on, and was working fine before I got the chance to power it off my girlfriend took it and began shaking it to get all the water out. After that the Flash on the Phone remained on and the screen went black. Now it's been 4 days since then and my phone has been sitting in a bag of rice up until about 30 minutes ago. I took it out of the rice and plugged it in and the same things were happening. LED light came on and screen remained off. It still vibrates and is still working but obviously the screen is black and you can't see anything. When I pressed the home button and lock buttons at the same time the apple logo came on for a second and vanished. So as of now, I'm under the impression that my phone is basically gone but I'm ordering a Pentalobe screwdriver so I can take it apart. If anyone has any suggestions or have experienced something similar I would love some input, Thank you!
See question above
Hi; I am a pianist and find it easy to record my home performances with my iPhone’s camera, in order to keep track of how I am sounding. Obviously though I’ve had to go down the route of attempting to use an external mic to record the sound, even though the video is fine- the amount to which the recorded audio on the iphones default mic is compressed is unacceptable when I’m trying to scrutinize my playing dynamics. The problem is, I can’t get the setup to work. I’ve purchased an XLR to minijack cable, to connect the mic’s output to the converter cable (here’s the exact one I bought: . I’ve purchased a minijack to IOS audio converter cable. I’ve tried plugging my mic in, turned airplane mode off and everything, and there’s still no difference when I try to toggle between default mic and external- the audio is still being recorded from the iPhone itself. I only have dynamic microphones; could this be the problem? Do I need a specific type of microphone if I want to perform this function? That’s literally the only potential problem I can think of; if that’s not it, I’m completely at a loss, as I’ve spent an annoying amount of money on different adapter leads now to absolutely no avail. If someone could tell me where I’m going wrong I would really, really appreciate it.

All I want to do with my iPhone 5s is make a few phone calls, SMS text, use wifi when available, and maybe listen to Spotify offline playlists. Could someone please help me with my settings? I don't want crazy data charges! Thanks.
I had recently had my iPhone 5s 32GB stolen right out of my bag. Luckily, because I have the tendancy to lose or break things, I had backed up my phone to the Find My iPhone application. I tracked my phone minutes until the person who stole it powered down the device and the location has since not changed. I later called my carrier and requested to have the phone classified as a "dead phone" and order a replacement. I filed a report with the police and has charged the crime as Grand Larceny off person. Is there any possible way with my phone with no service being recovered? Is it possible for the theif to reset or wipe my phone? Can the person still receive the messages that I had sent through my Find My iPhone Lost Mode function? Please Help !!
The battery was practically full and when i connect it to a charger it keeps beeping. When connected to a computer, it opens in itunes. I tried holding down the lock botton and home botton but it doesn't seem to work. What should i do?
I've had my iPhone 5 for a little less than a year. Up until last night the device has been working as expected. Last night the phone decided to refuse taking a charge. The symptoms: the battery icon color remains white/black with the cable plugged in fully; in other words , the icon does not turn green upon connecting the lightning power cable. The first discovery of this problem, the phone was connected through an AC adapter. In order to determine if the problem was due to the AC adapter, I connected the USB/Lightning cable into the USB jack of a laptop (powered on, connected to AC). Upon connecting the cable from Laptop to iPhone, the computer recognized a new connection (event sound audible), which implies that the cable is good. The phone itself still fails to indicate charging status. Other things I tried to remedy the problem: I tried a power-down of the phone (i.e. press & hold the sleep/wake button >3sec., then swipe to power off), and allow time for shut-down. Upon powering back up, no change in charging status. I also tried a restart (press & hold the home & sleep/wake button >3sec.); no change in charging status. I left the phone connected to the laptop overnight, in the hopes that the phone would take a charge anyway. This morning the battery icon showed no improvement in charge status. I don't know what else to try... I'm afraid that this is a hardware fault that can only be corrected by unit replacement. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Hello. I'm new here so my apologies if I posted this issue into the wrong area of the support discussion. My issue is this: Whenever I now try to sync my phone into iTunes, I'm receiving a new kind of error. Its an error that I cannot find online. It appears that no one has received this error but me, so I've decided to ask this question myself to see if anyone can offer solutions to this issue. I am getting the following error as shown: It appears to be an error code "-54", and I could not find this error code anywhere online. This issue is preventing me from syncing my photos, my recordings or anything that I have created on my phone into my iTunes. If it helps, I am using an iPhone 4S with the current version of 7.1.1. If anyone has any solutions or any assistance to help me with this issue, that will be very grateful.
I was recording a band and my phone died. When I charged my phone I went to look at the video and it wasn't present. Is there any possible location it could have saved and if so how do I find it?!?!?
I damaged my phone and i'd like to know if i can swap it and pay 200$ at any apple store in the world?This policy is applied in the US and canada. Does it apply in Barcelona too?Thank you
My phones not turning on so I've been using imessage on my mac, i usually sign out of it so no peeping could happen but I'm afraid I'm missing some messages being sent to me. Is there any way I can view the messages that have already been sent and not read ?
Hi. My problem is a bit complex, I would say. I have just bought a new iPhone and sold my old iPhone. When I was about to delete and reset all the stuff on my old, i couldn't because i couldn't remember my password for the restrictions in settings (english is not my primary language, so sorry if some of the words are not completely correct in the context of iPhone). I ended up restoring the old iPhone and leave it as it was when restored (no content and with the itunes logo on the screen) and afterwards gave the new owner the iPhone. But on my mac and new iPhone it is still possible for me to see the icloud tabs on my old iPhone (even though the new owner has restored his iPhone and logged in with his own apple id. After realizing this, he installed the find my iphone app and logged in with my account. This was something I saw on an apple article about resetting your old iPhone. By doing this I could erease my data from his iPhone from my mac. But when he did that, his iPhone didn't appear on my screen, as I thought it would. Now, is there anything, anything at all, I can do to delete my old iPhone from my account? Or do i really have to get my old iPhone back and set it up with my own account, for therefore at reset the iPhone using the find my iPhone app? Please help I hope all this makes just a little sense. Thanks!
please help. I talk on the phone, make voice memos, but when I go to make any kind of regular video on the external video camera it doesnt work. I just got the phone 3 days ago on verizon
Does anyone have ideas on how to fix video setting not recording sound?
I recently bought an iphone 5 online and I am having to restore it so that I am able to switch carriers. Im have been seeing where it should only take 30 mins. to a hour, but mine has been going for like 8 or 9 hours! Any help?

I am not sure if anyone has this problem at all but please see the video below. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o796/kyrasym/VID_20140524_172214_zps0e1eb0b4 .mp4 I get this like 6 to 7 times a day which is very annoying. Whenever I press the sleep/wake button. My phone wakes but instantly goes back to sleep again. I have brought it to the apple authorised service center TWICE. The first time they told me that there is a problem with my sleep/wake button so they changed it. Brought it home used it for about 4 days and the problem came back. Brought it back again to the service center but they told me there is nothing wrong with my phone even when I showed them this video of my problem. If someone from apple could please advise what I am supposed to do?
Does anybody have problems when after recording a video and no sound comes out? Please let me know
Recently, I accidently dropped my iPhone 5s on concrete and the glass screen got cracked/broken. The phone had a cover protector, but somehow the glass still got broken. Instead of taking it to the Apple store, I had one of the repair shops in local mall to replace the broken screen with a new one. The guy at the shop also replaced the LCD. However, I keep having intermitten issues with screen being unresponsive to my touches. Things either do not react to my touch or sometimes when I hit particular letter while typing, a different letter is actually selected. This does not happen every time, but when it does, it is really annoying. I took it back to the shop a few times and the repair guy has even put a new screen, but I am still having the issue with unresponsive screen. I also tried restoring the iPhone from backup and also to factory settings (wiping it completely clean), but still no luck. I read some things online that calibration might be at fault, but it is all inconclusive. Anyone has any idea what can be done to fix it? Since the phone was opened by non-Apple repair shop, the warranty is voided (I did not know this at a time). Please help.
My iPhone 4S's sound has been muted and I can't seem to get it un-muted. When I click the + and - Volume buttons the Ringer Volume thing pops up but there's no volume meter. The Silent switch above them is turned off. There are sometimes that the sound is un-muted but then it mutes again. I can't get sounds from games, music, videos, anything. What's wrong with it?
Imagine my surprise as I walked along the (quite deserted) beach this weekend as I uncovered an iPhone half covered with sand. I actually had no clue it was an iPhone until is pulled off the BodyGlove case. The phone was entirely dead and unresponsive to any buttons, etc. It had definitely been around a while. I didn't have the a charger, so I was unable to even take a glance at the phone until I returned home and got it powered up via a borrowed charger. When I did, the device was locked. No carrier, wouldn't attach to wifi. I tried to get Siri to call a contact (Mom, Dad, Sister, me, etc.) but without any kind of 'Net connection, it wasn't going to happen. The last events on the phone seemed to indicate that nothing had reached the phone since May 25th. It's now June 9th. I'm out of the area (back from the beach), so now what do I do?
I want to use my iphone's celldata connection to connect Wifi devices to the internet. The wifi hotspot doesn't work for my application because the feature becomes undetectable if a wifi conneciton isn't made in 90 seconds or if all wifi connections are lost for 90 second. I believe this is in order to conserve the iphone battery. I'm trying to think of ways to manage this without having to repeatedly reopen my phones hotspots menu. I've thought of 3 ways that this theoretically can be done. 1. jail brake the phone and set the phone to constantly broadcast the wifi, I personally don't like this option because if I wated an unrealiable opperating system on my phone I would get an android rather than a jailbroken iphone... 2. Possibly get Apple to modify their software or find an app that gets around this, is there a setting that when the phone is plugged in the hotspot automatically stays detectable? I don't think this is a possibility as I've been searching the web but it seems to me that Apple could impliment something like this as conserving battey life is a non-issue when the phone is plugged in. 3. Use bluetooth and some sort of a bluetooth to wifi adapter box, this seems the most likely solution that I can think of. I've been reading online and it appears that iphone bluetooth connection once turned on stays active indefinately unlike the iphone wifi hotspot. My thought would be to pair that iphone bluetooth to some device that would rebroadcast the signal as wifi. My biggest/ony problem with this idea is that I can't find anyone selling a device that does this. Adam
Hi, So I wasn't able to find a definitive answer for this. I bought a use Iphone 5. The former owner didn't remove the device from their iCloud, so it was still on the device. I got in touch with the owner, and they removed the device from iCloud. The problem being, the iCloud account on the device is still there and not logged in. Should it have deleted from the device when it was removed from the iCloud? Do I need to take the device to them to have them manually delete the account? Since it's not on their iCloud anymore, is it safe to format the device using DFU mode or will that result in an activation lock? Any help would be greatly appreciated. P.S. I've got the device connected through my wireless network so it is online.
My iPhone 4S keeps searching for service.I've tried:Taking out SIM card, then powered off my phonePowered off my phoneRestarting network settingsRestarting all settingsAirplane mode off and on This has been going on for about possibly two months now. What can I do to resolve this problem? After two weeks since this happened, I dropped my phone resulting into the back glass being cracked, and a better quality camera (haha), could this be another cause??
On my newly restored iPhone I only have 14 apps (500 MB in total) and 13 GB total of audio and video. Photos, books, documents and data add up to another 600 MB. I should have approximately half of the space on my iPhone clear, and yet I have 13 GB of "other" stuff filling the space, so much that I can't fit on another song (see attached image). Since I've restored this iPhone to factory settings, I set it up as a new iPhone, so none of the old problems I had could have been transferred.

On the PC version, you can enable or disable the framerate limiter.When it's turned on, you get 30fps.When it's off, you get well over 60fps depending on how powerful your PC is. To keep it at 60fps, you just turn off the frame limiter and turn on Vsync in the Nvidia Control Panel.Perfect. Anyways, I wanted to ask if there's a way to do this for GTA games on iOS? That way we can get 60fps and make the game better overall.I'd love to see a 60fps game on my iPhone 5s. I do not care if 60fps will make the battery drain quicker. Any help & discussion will be appreciated!
Good day. I am using a generic lightning data cable to charge for a while now. my problem arose just yesterday after i charged my iphone 5 using the said cable. after charging and disconnecting my phone, this message keeps popping out "This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this iPhone". it appears everywhere and frequently. it's annoying. really. then this morning, i plugged my phone to my MAcbook Air, for a few minutes it was charging but my Mac suddenly shut down! i disconnected my iphone, powered on my Mac and tried again. same thing. My Mac shut down! Could this be a "virus", malware, worm? whatever it is, please do help me. Thank you
So my iphone constantly seems to be loading/transferring data. (The little wheel in the top left hand corner of the screen is always spinning). I can't work out why and I'm pretty sure it is contributing to some pretty horrific phone bills by going over my cap (last 2 bills I have been way over). I have made sure apps are not running in the background when I am done with them, making sure they are all closed down, but it still continues. The most common suggestion I have seen online is to turn off celular data ... I mean that does work, but it seems like a bandage fix ... I do want to use my data, but when I choose to .. constantly turning it on and off when I want to use anything related to the internet is not ideal. When it is turned off, the moment I connect to wifi somewhere it is back to transferrinf data again. I can't work out what else I should be doing to fix it? edit: I should say that I have had background app refresh turned off, so that isn't the issue. I also just reset the celluar use data for the apps to see if I can find out if a particular app is using more without it really being used. But so far nothing really seems to look odd.
hello my name is navi verma i am from india i have updated my iphone today and i am getting problem that my sim is not working my iphone is of canada
I'm using a fully updated 5s and getting a delivery failure message whenever I send pics via iMessage. The strange thing is that the people I'm messaging are receiving the messgaes and pics despite the error message on my side. I've talked with some other iPhone users and they are currently having the same issue but I don't see anything online about the problem. I guess it's not a big deal since the messages are being sent. Anyone have insight?
My iPhone camera shutter will not open. Occasionally, the reverse camera shutter will open, but when I hit the button to reverse it back it just blurs out the picture--I don't think it ever switches around. I have powered off the phone using the top button and have done a reset by hitting both the top button and the front button at the same time. What else can I try? I am about 200 miles from the nearest Apple Store.
I bought my iPhone 4s back in April 2012, then in March 2013 the wifi disabled and the iPhone was replaced free of charge under 12 month warranty for a new phone. Last week I cracked the screen badly on my second phone by dropping it and now need toclaim on my insurance (Protect your Bubble) and they need proof of the imei and other documents. The problem is, the imei number of my current phone is different from the imei of the original phone purchased, so how do I go about contacting apple to see if I can request a document which proves this? Or is this a lost hope? If its a lost hope, do you reccomend going to apple for a replacement (as they cant replace a cracked screen buy exchange the phone for a refurbished alternative for a fee?) or sending it to a company online to replace it for a fraction of the price? Cheers

My iPhone 4 has a blank screen and cannot be powered off using the normal (top) button. Pressing the home button has no effect, and the screen remains black. The phone is charged and can make calls normally using a bluetooth hands free kit in my car. Photos can be downloaded using Image Capture, and music and apps are visible in iTunes. iTunes tells me that the phone can't be restored until Find my iPhone is switched off in iOS iCloud settings - which can't be done as the screen is inaccessible! Any ideas would be extremely welcome. HELP

Dear Sir/Madam, I would like to inform you that, I am facing problem in my lock key since from the last one year after apple change my i phone 5 due to sparking problem in phone at the time of charging. Then apple replace my phone but within few weeks i realize that my lock key not working properly then i have gone to apple service center but i was shocked when apple told me that some liquid spot found inside your i phone so we will not able to help you. I was shocked that apple give me this kind of completely negative response. I was never expect that apple behave like this. Apple give this ph by replaced my old one & now apple behaving like this. They never thought that customer not fool that he will use his ph in to the water. After one year I have read an article in apple support site that mostly i phone 5 got the same problem ( lock key problem) and they are ready to change the lock mechanism for those i phone 5 having the same problem. I check my serial no also & found my phone is also eligible for the same service. I have go to the apple service center & give him my phone but i was shocked again when they also told me that sorry sir some liquid spot found in your phone we are not able to help you. I am not able to understand what happen to the apple services after sir stive jobs. I have no physical damage in my phone then why don't apple change the lock key mechanism if they already know that fault is totally from the apple end. I am just expecting that apple will take my issue seriously i am facing the problem since last one year but no one giving me positive response. I am still thinking that is their i have done any mistake for choosing the apple product. Is it the apple of sir stive jobs the people are talking about this. I am giving sone detail to you for your reference. Serial no. F18K85WBDTWDIMEI No. 01 355600 892277 1 Waiting for your positive response. RegardsSanjay Ghildiyal9953335431
Hi there! I was wondering how much it would cost me to replace my iPhone 4 with a newer model or a refurb. I am currently out-of-warranty. I'm pretty sure my phone has water damage and the screen has been cracked pretty bad. I saw the article regarding Express Replacement Service with the pricing chart, however I don't want to use this option since my plan was to go into an Apple Store and make the exchange in-store, not to send my phone in via mail. Will Apple even allow me to exchange my phone even though it has water damage and is out of warranty? Please Help!!
How Apple verify an intermittent sleep/power button issue? I sent in my phone to a service center and they deny to repair for me as they claim got no problem for my phone. i'm really frustation now, how they verify the power button? just press and release? or they did open to verify the part inside? i said i take a video and they said even you record a video you bring in we test no problem we will still return the phone to you, i just like ... in this case, how Apple can verify? wait until it totally out of function?
can an iPhone gen 5. play a 4K video?
My phone went under recovery mode after a quick dip in some water today, after plugging it in and doing a factory reset, it went to the 'Hello, hola, bonjour' screen. When asked to enter my Apple ID & password to activate my phone, it said the email was incorrect. I've called Apple & they said it was the corresponding email. I've used the same Apple ID to sign into everything; iTunes, iCloud online, Facetime on my MacBook Air. I even used it to sign in to ask this question .. It's just my phone that won't accept my Apple ID. Any help would be fantastic, it's really frustrating knowing the one device I use the most is now out of service for no good reason at all. Also, when plugged into my laptop, error 2005 & 9 came up.
Can anybody please help me with this as when i go to the service centre they ask for proof because they do not see the flickering. So what should i do for the proof i cant even record.
Starting at some point this evening, my iPhone 5 stopped receiving group text messages. I regularly text 2 groups of people. One group consists of 2 android phones and myself, and the other group consists of an android phone, an iPhone, and myself. They receive my messages, but I don't receive theirs. I can text and receive texts from them individually, although I can't receive pictures from one of the android phones, and the iPhone doesn't always receive my messages. I chatted online with a verizon tech support man, and we reset my network settings and turned group messaging on and off. He sent a group message to my iPhone, and I did not receive it. He asked me to send a group message to him and another of my contacts. The other contact was an iPhone. They got my messages, and I received theirs as well. Now however, I'm not receiving any group messages at all. Does it have something to do with iMessage/Apple vs. Android? Is it my phone? Is it Verizon? Has anyone else had this problem? I'm open to suggestions, and willing to try anything. It's so frustrating not being able to receive texts. Is a trip to the Verizon store worth it? (I should add that Verizon is my service provider.) Thanks guys!

Please help, my iphone screen was repaired with a faulty screen and my screen has went sheet white with all coloured lines so i cannot see anything on the screen at all. My phone is still on and i can still hear all my messages coming through, is there any way i can read those messages before dumping the phone?
My wifi won't work on my iPhone 4s, just one day it stopped working. I've tried everything and it still won't work. I looked up on the internet and it said you can heat your phone up using a hairdryer and when the notification "phone needs to cool down comes up" you out it in the fridge and turn it on and off again. It worked for 5 minutes then went back to normal so I tried that over and over,then later on that day I got a message saying "connect to itunes" so that meant I had to reset my whole entire phone and I hadn't used back up.I then seen some other videos and it said you have to open the pent alone screws at the bottom of your phone and tighten a 'wifi' screw inside so I did as the video and they used a knife to open the screws but when I tried to use a knife it didn't work so I ordered a pentalobe screwdriver off the internet and it opened one of them but when I got to the other one it didn't open and that was because the knife I used to try and open it had scrapped the screw so now I can't even open the phone to see if tightening this 'screw' will work. I was wondering if I took it into apple would they help or would they send me away because I've wrecked the phone and it's not their fault? PLEASE HELP I've not been able to use my phone for a bout 2 months now
