Hello all! Since installing the software update, I've had issues playing songs on my phone. I'll select a song and instead of playing it, it will cycle through the other songs by the same artist and delete them from my device. Any idea how to fix this? I've noticed it doesn't happen consistently and on occasion, the selected song will play.
When i try sync my iphone to try to add music my itunes says that i do not have enough space but i have 3.67gb of free space. Also if i try to take a picture it says i dont have enough space. I also tried downloading the update but it says i dont have enough storage room. Im out of ideas and need some help.
I have a new 2014 Toyota Corolla with the technology package " canadian version" There is the option to use the car to send and receive text messages but the car says it can not sync with messages on the iphone 5. Toyota website says its compatible with the iphone 5 but not with ios7. Does anyone know of a work around or how to get this option in the car to work with ios7 ... or i guess ios7.0.3 now .... lol
i would like to share with you how i fixed my iphone 4s after ios 7.0.4 update and lose of wifi, bluetooth greyed out. Ive resolved the grayed out wifi bluetooth issue, i just wanted to share thia with you and hope it works for you as well. Firstly i was innocently upgrading a fully working Iphone 4s no problems ever, after the ios 7.0.4 update i lost all wifi and bluetooth which was grey out. After having contacted apple they told me like everyone else hardwear issues, i never beleived this from the start as the iphone previously worked fine before the update. Also if you check settings - General - about phone - wifi has no address where as before it was fine.I almost believe in my case the ios 7.0.4 has deactivated the wifi hardware by not re-entering a address upon updating as a issue. As the iphone is out of warrenty apple informed me if the item has a issue we could replace for £166 for out of warrenty, "what for downloading apple software thats prevented a perfect phone from working"! I informed apple this is a common issue and on the apple support communities site many people have this issue, the response was dont believe anything online. Literally i searched the entire internet for solutions, from trying to downgrade software and use tinyumbrellas software to alter the host settings to enable itune to download without a popup message of 'this device isnt eligible for the requested build' basiscally a block download. To more obscure solutions such as placing the iphone in a freezer or using a hair dryer. Please check these online for further reference. I would just like to share the fact if all else fails and you dont believe the obscure solutions work please have another rethinken, as they did in my case as id like to share my resolution with you.Please check online for further references if you prefer, but i to was doubtful about this idea and melting the phone etc. Fix iphone greyed out wifi bluetooth problem - worked on a iphone 4s with recent ios 7.0.4 update worked fine before update on 7.0.3 1.Place a hairdryer 6 inches away, apply heat for 10 sec. 2.Then remove for a few seconds BE CAREFULL KEEP CHECKING. 3.Then repeat, till phone gets hot and upon the screen the iphone will say to hot to use. 4.Switch phone off and let cool down. 5.When you switch on it reactivates the wifi hardware with the software and you can use wifi and bluetooth again. Im just a normal person thats had apple products for over 15 years due to being a designer, ive been messed about by apple and tried everything on the net and the only reason i post this is to offer a solution that may work for you as it did for me.If any one has another opinion then that is there opinion, but this worked in my case and what i state is my experience and thoughts on this issues.All i intend is to try and help others as other online advice helpped me.
I've been trying to update some apps earlier today, and my iphone keeps redirecting me to 'sign-in' and then going to verify my billing info. Now, I've only used one card for this iphone, it was a hand-me-down, but I've long disaccociated the old email address from it. There hasn't been an issue like this until now. I haven't done anything like a back-up or a restore, but I've read that those methods haven't helped those who have tried. Unless I've missed something, like another user agreement, or something, I'm rather stuck as to what to do.
I bought a new iphone a two months ago and I do not have garage band, iPhoto, iMovie, pages, numbers or keynote. How would I go about getting these apps (said to be free for new iPhones with IOS 7)?
I have an iPhone 5 which is showing 4.55GB of 'other' used storage on the status bar of iTunes. What is this? I don't have excessive media content on the phone, how do I free up this space please?
I have the iphone 5c through tmobile, want to unlock so I can use a different carrier. How do I do this? All the online information I have found so far seems to be a scam. I only want a legitimate unlock. I do not want to unlock in a way that would end up messing up the hardware/software on my phone. If anyone knows where I can find resources to legitimate companies that can unlock in my area, that would be great. WPB, FL. Or how I can do this myself, etc. I would prefer not to spend a lot of money on this, but would rather do so if necessary.
Only the carrier can unlock an iPhone if the phone has not been bought SIM-lock-free.iPhone: About unlocking
Some attention was given to the fact that when iOS7 came out, a possibility was offered to install versions of an app that didn't require the latest (and not-so-greatest O:-) ) version of the OS. I've been able to do just that a number of times (though I cannot remember if it concerned applications that I already had installed, or also new apps).Now, I tried to install an app that's free for today, and that definitely existed before iOS7 came out ("Just Six"), but neither my iPhone 4s nor my 3rd gen iTouch (that can run't even run iOS6) allow me to install an older app version. Is that due to a change in Apple's policies, a choice of the app's author, or because the feature only existed for updating already installed applications?
Ok so right after school I was walking and by accident I dropped my iPhone 4 in the snow The music was still playing(speaker) and I paused the music and I pressed play and it wouldn't play so now I'm trying to find a way to make my phone work.Also someone just called me and apparently they couldn't hear me and I just don't know what to do at this point..Can someone please help?
I've had my iPhone 5 since September, so about 6 months now. Last week, I was backing up my phone like I do every so often, and I was asked if I wanted to update my phone to the newer, updated version of iOS 7. (I believe it was iOS 7.0.6) Anyway, a couple days later, I noticed that my phone started shutting off randomly. It started happening more and more, and sometimes it wouldn't even turn back on and I would have to do a "hard restart" (holding lock and home button). The only time it didn't happen was when my phone was plugged in, charging. I looked online a bit and similar things have happened to people who have dealt with battery failure or power depletion (?). I saw that restoring it could help, but I did and nothing changed. Just yesterday, now the fourth day that this has been going on, it shut off and has not turned on since then; when plugged in it will occasionally appear with the white screen with the apple logo, like it does when it's being turned on, or if I press the home button it comes up with the red battery indicator, like it does when the battery is dead (there is no way that the battery is dead). Anyway, I contacted Apple support online yesterday, as I'm a college student living on campus, without a car, and they told me to try to restore it again, because that should fix it, but iTunes couldn't even register that it was connected because it wouldn't turn on. The person I talked with suggested I take my phone to an Apple store. Luckily, spring break starts in a couple of days so I will be able to drive the hour to the closest store to me so they can take a look at it. I'm just really curious if anyone else has had a similar problem, and/or if anyone knows if Apple will replace my phone for me? The screen is cracked, but it's been like that for probably 2-3 months now and I really don't think that has anything to do with it. The person I spoke with suggested that it could have been due to the update, but didn't outright say it. Thanks!
Hello, I have an Iphone 5 bought in January 2013 in online apple store, last days I figured out that my iphone shut down with 30% battery, it never happened before, and it's not all the time, normally it goes to 1 or 2% but the others not. I put him in charge everydays like usualy, at night, and there's no way the problem come from that. I think this is bizarre, because when it goes down, I try get it up and it show me the icon no battery, but if I wait 10 min, it will turn on normally and shows me the battery like before (30%). Someone can tell me whats wrong? I think it's not problem from hardware, but from software, Am I wrong? Thank you,Nogueira
My iphone 4s runs on ios 6.0.1, 16g version, and has 7g of free space. I just synced an infinity blade III version 1.0.2 from my itunes on pc to my iphone. The syncing took like (literally) only 1 second which is weird because the game file showed as 2g on the pc (also weird because the actaual game is 1.4g) the game app does show up on my iphone screen, but it is transparent (meaning the app looks like it is downloading) except it has the word Infinity blade III at the bottom instead of "downloading" or "installing." Please help, thanks!!
my phone wont play the lock sound when i lock my phone and the volume is up all the way and the switch is up.
My iphone has been acting crazy since the iOS7 upgrade a while back. Everything is impacted. Texts are delayed for hours, calls do not go through, my time settings reset sometimes to 1969 and won't let me change it until I do a hard reset, my email accounts disappear, then reappear, my phone randomly calls people when it is locked and sitting untouched on my desk, even my games are impacted with them seeming to have a mind of their own (setting changed, won't let me change out again, won't respond to commands, etc), my contacts disappear then some reappear randomly (numbers are in my recent list, but the names and details disappear). It works fine half the time, but just randomly acts possessed. I've searched online and tried many things to fix.I've tried rebooting. I've made sure there is nothing but texts and numbers in my phone name. I've cleared my safari history, cleared cookies, etc. I have not done a factory reset as I have had bad luck before where all my data, pictures, music, etc are gone. I know people say "there is no iphone virus" but whatever name you want to call it, virus, glitch, etc., I just want to know how to fix it while keeping all my data. I'm so fed up with this phone I am about ready to abandon Apple products completely, but again I want to keep my data. Their solution is always "upgrade to a new device", the latest and most expensive model of course. And since I'm not under warranty, nobody at Apple will address the problems. Is there an antivirus software or some way to run a diagnostic on the phone? What can I do?
Hi all My iPhone 5 has stopped charging. On the screen I get the red battery iscon and the charging icon showing at the bottom. It's been like this overnight but is not taking any charge. I am due to get a replacement this evening from my network but I am unable to delete my content or back the device up, Is there any other way of doing this without the device being powered on (I realise this is probably a stupid question) kindda grasping at straws here. If anyone has any useful advice or solutions it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Ive Googled a few site that have free programs but all charge to transfer files. ive tried "iMacsoft iPhone to Mac Transfer" and that failed. Is there an easy way???
Dear all, I have bought a new 5s from the online site of apple 2,5 months before, last month I have noticed that the right top of the glass of the screen is detached and if you try to push it gently back you can see the movement. I have checked my girlfriend's iphone 5 and there is nothing like this in her phone. I have a case from the day that I bought it and it has never fallen down though. What do you believe that I have to do? To be honest I want to throw it away but I feel really sorry about the money that I gave to bought it... It's a shame... Please help
I keep getting the following message when I try to sync my iPhone…"The iPhone “ iPhone” cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all of the items in the iTunes library (additional 680.1 MB required).". Where do you go to fix this? Cannot find anywhere.
I need help. About two hours ago i tried updating my iphone 4, ios 7 to the latest firmware. I tried doing this straight from my device. after several minutes my device seemed to be frozen. I read online to put it in recovery mode. after i did this my iphone says it needs to be connected to itunes. so i did that and it told me i needed to restore my device since it was in recovery mode. after searching the internet, I found that no one is experiencing what I am. So i decided to try and restore my iphone. However, an error popped up (Error 3194) I have tried multiple times to restore it and it still wont work. any ideas or anything that could help? I really dont want to buy a new iphone.
I have an iPhone 5, tonight listening to radio online, audio just stopped (was still streaming). Tried resetting, then played around with volume button which told me it was connected to headphones (but it's not). Plugged in headphones & it works fine. Called my phone from my wife's & audio is fine & it rings. Need to say I purchased in December 2012 so not sure if in warranty still (I live in Australia & think it is)? Also I dropped 3 months ago & cracked screen (def my fault) but it been working fine until,few hours ago Will apple repair since I dropped & cracked screen?
My father in law is in a dilemma, he bought an iPhone 5 just after launch sim free using it on T-Mobile, he's used it for a year with no hassles, and sold it on to a friend having upgraded to a 5S, so the friend popped his sim in the 5 only to find it doesnt work on his preferred network.....needs to be unlocked! So the question is, how dose a sim free handset become a locked handset, after its been purchased outright, Do the carrier have the right to lock handsets?What are the options?Anyone else had this problem?
Hi everyone - can anyone help me with this teaser?I recently bought a Tom Tom hands-free kit to use my iPhone 4S in my car. I am having trouble with audio... I have been able to connect the phone with the TT unit via Bluetooth, and after talking to the TT help-line, I chose this setting; Settings>General>Accessibility>Incoming Calls>Headset, but I am still having trouble.The only audio I can hear via the TT speaker is the phone and Siri. All the other audio is either muted (no Music at all!) or else comes over the phone speaker. While it's a reliaf to be able to use the phone 'hands-free' the main reason I bought the unit in the first place was to use the turn-by-turn directions available from the Maps app, and the voice via the phone speaker is too quiet to be audible while I'm driving - does anyone know which settings need tweaking so I can hear the turn-by-turn voice via the TT unit speaker?
I find it ridiculous how the only way to activate this feature, is on the phone itself. Who's to say the thief won't switch it off, or you were unaware of the feature so never enabled it? Yes it's good to be proactive and cautious, but theft is unpredictable so you never know when to take these precautions. I never thought I'd have to use it! That may be naive but there's still the issue of the thief switching it off now they are in possession of the phone, when clicking on the 'Find my iPhone' app online, I'd like to see 'set it up from here' rather than 'set up account from an iphone' is that too much to ask??
I have an iPhone which suffered water damage. (Technically it's is not water... Thank you, cat -.-)The device was actually plugged in for charging while it happened, yet almost everything seems to be working. Only the sleep/wake and volume buttons don't react. Meaning I cannot shut the phone down.I covered the device with rice, hopefully draining some more humidity. But it is still powered on, and it's gonna take ages for the battery to deplete by itself. I'm not really comfortable with the device still running while having liquid in it... I'd disassemble it anyway, since it definetly needs to be cleaned. Here's my main concern: Will disconnecting the battery while the phone is still powered on cause any permanent damage? Or is there any way of shutting the device down which does not require the sleep/wake button?Or do you think I should just let it dry in its current status (powered on), since nothing major seems to be damaged (yet)? Thanks
After the iOs 7.0.6. update my speaker does not work anymore. So I can't play music on the speaker, and worse, making a phonecall is impossible, because I can't hear the person at the other end of the line. If the headphones are in, it works. Seems that this problem occurs a lot since iOs 6. Anybody an idea how to solve this? Tried everything, including resetting my Iphone. Nothing worked.
My iphone 5c storage is almost full and I need to delete some picture to free up some space. If I delete the pictures off of my phone, will they be deleted off of iCloud as well? I cant afford to lose these pictures.
Can you get a free iPhone replacement or does it have to be purchased?
I lost my iphone 5 and I want to know if I can login online and get access to my text messages? If not, when and if I replace the phone, will all the missed messages get carried over to the new hardware? Assuming of course I would have the same phone number.
I have an iPhone 4s running iOS 7.0.6 now after the security update. Coming from 7.0.4. On the previous iOS everything ran fine. I am no newbie to jailbreaking, to computers, to testing and replacing parts on circuit boards. It is what I do for work. But I can't for the life of me figure this out. I am coming from an Android phone and recently switched to this iPhone. That's my back story, here's my problem. After updating to iOs 7.0.6 the volume rocker button seems to more often than not have no effect. The indicator dots under the ringer banner periodically disappear. This happens when I open app's, try to play music, most things that involve sound. I can plug in my headphones and I will regain sound through the ear buds. But even then sometimes I will notice the music or sounds stop playing and I have to unplug the headphones and plug them back in. It's as if the Iphone thinks it is docked. I have tried cleaning the docking port, I have cleaned the headphone jack. I have restored and rebooted the iPhone numerous times. I have tested them with a multimeter and even replaced them with equipment from another iPhone 4s. Same thing occurs. All I can come up with is that it is a software issue, not hardware. Is anyone else having this issue? Is there a solution? I do not plan on going to an apple store as they always give me the run around and no offence to them, but I start talking in terms that they don't understand. The iPhone was growing on me but I never had issues like this with my Android, not to mention the absolute freedom I had to change and mod my phone's software however I saw fit. I don't want to switch back but I can not always have my headphones in to be able to hear notifications and sounds. Again, just short of the one post I saw about sticking a butter knife into the only spot on the iPhone a butter knife will fit, I've tried and researched everything. Any input would be appreciatedThanks-Patt
iphone 4s is working for example can play,music recieve texts ,calls ect but has black screen and have tried the force shutdown method but still can see what im doing on the screen
I have a game on my iphone, when I try to open it , it does not open and goes back to home screen. Why is that????
I own a space grey 16GB iPhone 5s and have done so since early January. It occasionally force restarts. Today I noticed that at about 3:10PM that it was on only 12% battery, I had accidentally left it on charge for the enitre previous night. It had 90% battery at about 10:55AM. I also noticed that it was really hot in my pocket. I had not be using it since 13:25PM and there was only one app open in multitasking (that app was Youtube and I had paused a video.) I also had a snapback phone cover on my iPhone. I usually get home at about 3:45PM and I usually have about 60% left. I do know that when the 5s was released that some users had similar problems to mine and it turned out that their phones had a manufacturing problem. Apple decided to replace hier phones free of charge. But, that was back in October and I am not sure if that free replacement will apply now. I got my phone through Carphone warhouse and I am on a 4G EE contract. My sister put my phone on her bank insurance as she was allowed so we cancelled the Carphone warehouse insurance. So my final question(s) is will Apple replace my phone? Will I have to pay? Should I go through my sisters bank insurance? Also, I don't really want to replace my phone so would anybody be able to tell me how to fix this problem? My iOS is up to date as well. Thank you for any help that I receive.
My iPhone 5 was purchased sim free from carphone warehouse (because they could supply it on day of release), so is about 15 months old. It has developed a fault where the screen is super sensitive (intermittently) and so if I hover over certain parts of the screen, it activates it without having to make contact! I've been in to see a couple of Genius' at the Cambridge store, and although have received conflicting info, it sounds as if the screen needs replacing at their OOW cost of £129, or get a replacement for £229. I don't see how a product that costs over £500 can only be expected to last 12 months though - surely it's not fit for purpose. We've always received good care from Apple before and are really questioning our faith in their products. I'm going to contact carphone warehouse tomorrow and see what they can do as the actual retailer. I really don't mind spending £500 every couple of years, then my wife has the old one and I get a new one, but if they are going to stop working soon after the warranty runs out, it will become far too expensive. Any suggestions? I don't really want to pay the OOW service fee as they have said it may not fix it still, and presumably the phone could develop further faults and cost more. The replacement is an option, but then what would the warranty be on that? Really not sure I even want to give Apple any more of my cash when they just want to cash-in on repair costs! Any suggestions out there? ThanksRichard
Hello everyone. Suddenly I have this problem... When I wanted to take a photo today I realized there is a black shadow with the shape of a circle at the bottom of my camera. I tried to clean the lens with a cloth and nothing.I did a bit of research and some with the same issue, got a new iPhone to replace the one they had. All that on an apple store I suppose. So, is that right? I mean it can be replaced for free?I bought this phone on July 2013, I have the recipe on my mail account. And also can I put money over it to get a 5s? How much? I hope someone could answer my question.Thanks a lot!
I dropped my iPhone 5S in the bath for around three seconds, I grabbed it and dryed it off and it seemed to be working normally. I used COOL air to gently dry out the charging and headphone jack just to be safe. About twenty minutes later my phone did not have service in my room and it was charging inconsistently. My phone has never not had service in my room over the last 3 months I've had it. I read a few articles online and immediately turned it off and put it in rice. I checked the water damage indicator around two hours after it had been in the rice and it was not red so I just wanted to know if this meant my iPhone does not have water damage and I'm safe? I still have it in the rice just to be safe. Thanks!!
I downloaded a couple games for my kids to play, and they keep displaying useless little messages at all hours, to try to get me to play again. Not usre what these messages are called ... Notifications?? Alerts?? Badge?? Banner?? Whatever they are, they are annoying as he11. I've tried going into settings and turning stuff off, but I'm probably just making a mess, and these things keep showing up. Can someone please help me with the terminology here and let me know how I can stop the harassement. :-) Thanks.
I am trying to update my iPhone and am getting the message that there isn't enough room on the computer. How much free space do I need?
I updated this morning to iOS 7.0.6, now my phone does not play a sound or vibrate when I recieve a text message, nor does the screen light up. I tend to place my phone on my desk in front of me as I work, and thought I had just missed several tests and calls, but I tested it, and my phone will ding and vibrate if I'm using the phone, but if the phone is locked, there's no notificaiton. It was working fine this morning until I upgraded iOS, so I'm assuming it has to do with that. Anyone else having this issue? Any fixes? I've restarted the phone, went through my settings and turned off and back on all the settings that apply, no changes.
I recently bought and iphone 5c, my car has an MDI port so i can play my music through the head unit and also charge the phone. this worked perfectly fine with my old iphone 4 and appears to work with my friends iphone 5's. When mine is plugged in it disconnects and reconnects every 25 seconds or so. I don't think it's the car or the wire itself as it seems to work fine with other iphones. Any ideas?
Everytime I take a photo on my Iphone 5s or a video my phone shuts down like the battery is dead. Then I turn it on a few minutes later and it still has 50% battery power left, so why is my phone turning off after I take a photo? I tried to reset my phone, but it is still not working properly and shuts down when taking a photo or a video. My sister had the same problem with her Iphone 5s, and it was the battery, and they replaced the battery for her. My phone started having this problem back at christmas time 2013 and everytime I went to the apple store in Thousand Oaks, ca they were all to busy to look at my phone, and now my phone is not under warranty since I purchased it 12-2-12, so the store said its not covered and want to charge me 79.99 for a new battery. My sister did not have to pay for her battery and they just put a new one in for free and her warranty was up too? PLEASE HELP!!!!
