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?
I recently replaced my iphone screen and afterwards I discovered that my camera roll had crashed. With it, I lost all of my pictures and videos. Luckily, I recovered them from a program that I had downloaded. However, the storage that used to take up my photos and videos on my phone had transfered to the "other" section on itunes. Is the only way to remove/decrease the storage of the "other" file by restoring your iphone? I don't want to restore my iphone because I am also having issues with backing up my phone. Whenever I try to back it up on itunes, it says "the backup was corrupt or not compatable with the iphone". My phone has never been backed up because of this issue, so if I were to restore my phone then all off my files would be deleted. I have tried reseting my phone, but the "other" section is unchanged. Is there anyway I can delete the corrupt files on my phone? I have tried removing all pictures, videos, apps, and music in an attempt to discover the source of the corrupt files but I haven't found them. Also, if I was to "restore backup" with my iphone from my ipad, would that mean losing my messages?
So i restored my iphone ,i lost everything ,luckily i have a back up file on my computer..my question to any willing to help is how i can place my back up on to my iTunes to then sync it with my iphone ?
Thanks - but Apps is ticked under "sources" in preferences>general.

my girlfriends iphone 4 shut off mid-sync while loading photos now it wont turn back on it is almost as if the battery is dead but it had a half battery charge before trying to apply the photos. how can i reset it or even turn the phone on? the phone has no sign of life. it wont register when we plug into the computer.
Okay so first my iphone 4s had a storage problem. So I bought an iphone 5 and restored my old settings to the iphone 5. Sadly that carried over the storage bug to my new phone. I went and reset all of the factory settings and started from scratch. I have now fixed my storage problem, but I made this a new iphone, and did not restore from a back up this time. I set it up with the same phone number of course, expecting it to take in my contacts from my cell phone number. I sync everything, and my contacts are there. But they aren't MY contacts....they're my mom's.... So how can I get rid of her contacts and import mine. I tried turning off iCloud contacts and deleting them, and turning it back on. But its the same. Help!?
after getting a new iphone 4s I did a sync with my computer to get my contacts and pics back on my phone. after the sync, there are pics on my phone I want to delete but I can't delete them. Some of the pics were never on my phone but were on my computer. There is no trash barrel or any options to be able to delete them when I click on them.
Is there anyway itunes can track my serial number via itunes to shut my stolen phone off if someone tried to sync it?
I have iphone 5 and try to sync it with my computer (Windows 7 Max.). I have already installed ITunes and verified my computer in AppStore. But anyway I have problems with syncing applications. For example, I've downloaded Translator and tried to install it to iphone. I've clicked "sync" in window "Programs", but it goes only up to the third step from four and fails. In window rights it is shown, that this program is already installed, but when I turn off my iphone from computer, I check and can see, that programs were not installed.My computer is also already verified, so that I can connect it with iphone. In common settings on iphone I have already turned on restrictions so that I can install applications. Could you tell me what should I do? I hope that someone had the same problem.
I have an iphone 4. I've been having many isssues with it, since the 6.1.2 software update.My iTunes album artworks were all messed up.My phone wouldn't apply any changes made, only the application changes would update.I have been struggling with signal since the update. It reached the point where I opted to erase all content & start from scratch. I know this can take a few hours to do, but my phone has been in the "pending" state (erasing state) for almost 24 hrs now.Is this normal? If not, what can I do to get it to work?My sleep/wake button no longer works either.
I synchronized my iphone with iTunes and my Outlook calendar. By doing so, I deleted all of my Outlook calendar events in Outlook and on my iphone. How do I reverse that action? I tried restoring my iphone with the backup. When I do this, my calendar events come back on my iphone but as soon as I plug it into my computer, it syncs with iTunes and deletes everything all over again. I have tried changing the sync settings to not sync the calendar but it still synchronizes and deletes everything. PLEASE HELP!
I have several corporate iphones that will contain sensitive data. We do not want the data on these units to be synced with unauthorized computers? Is there a way to disable usb hard wire sync?
I just got a brand new iphone 5 yesterday and was in the process of performing a "sync" to copy some music. iTunes alerted me that a new software update was available for my phone so I started this process. The process crashed and despite removing the old software, it has not installed the new and will not pick up the phone at all when I plug it in. The phone just has a picture of the lead and an arrow pointing to the iTunes symbol. Help!
I have an iphone 4 8gb and it seems that everytime I try to download an app/song or try to take a photo/video it is constantly telling me there's no more space left on my iphone. The content of my iphone is: 1.40 GB's of music, 761.1 MB of photos, 779.6 MB of apps, and 3.39 GB's of other. I don't know how to get rid of the "other" part that takes up half my storage. If anyone has some helpful ways to get rid of the other storage without losing all my data (pics, music, apps, messages, etc) let me know!
Every time that I try to sync my iphone 5 to my computer (pc) itunes tells me that my computer is not authorized and as soon as I enter my info. (sign in) a message comes on ant says that my computer has been allready authorized before.
I upgraded to the new iOS yesterday, and just before that, I backed up my phone. Now it asks for a password in order to restore my old content to my phone. I don't recall creating a password. How can I reset this password?

I have googled it and there is not any answer to it so far. any help would be appreciated.thanks
Hey all, I have an iphone 5, obviously less than a year old, and am having a really strange problem. Two days ago, I was able to charge my phone, sync it, everything like it was normal. Yesterday, it decided it won't charge. When the phone is dead, and I plug it in it has the normal charging screen and will get to 5% like usual. But then, there is no charging battery, and my phone charges SUPER slow. For example, yesterday I plugged in my phone at 3:50pm with 1%, and when I unplugged it (never used it while charging) it was 9:15pm and 34%. Continuing to charge it from then has resulted it up to 50% now. When it's plugged into my computer (Windows 7 Professional), I get a notification that says the USB device has malfunctioned. So I know from this and the very slight charging that it shouldn't be the cord, there is still communication between the two. I haven't updated my phone to the latest settings (it's on 6.0.2) and I'm struggling to try to update it now. I also don't want to Reset all Settings due to some of my photos and videos that I need to save and I don't want those deleted. What do I do? How do I go about fixing this situation? It really shouldn't be a battery since it's a decently new phone. It's been handled great and there is no damage to it and no drops. Help!
i cant seem to find a way to get my contacts from my gmail account onto my iphone 5

I connected my wife's iphone 5 to her computer to back it up, sync it and and check for updates. An error message came up and put the phone into recovery mode. Now we cannot get it out of recovery mode. We do not want to restore it as there are numerous photos that would be lost.Any ideas?
Hello ! I have a 16 GB iphone. I tried to download Fifa 13 but it has refused to install! I have tried everything even deleting more than 8 other apps! It still says I have to go to settings to manage my storage and there is not enough storage on the phone when there actually is. I have been on this for over a day. Help!
Okay. So this was what happened: I was updating my iTunes library to the latest version. All of a sudden, my netbook crashed and eventually was hanging. So I removed the battery and restarted my netbook. I later found out, my iTunes got deleted. I didnt panic at first since I deliberately deleted my iTunes before and reinstalled it again finding all my files back in the iTunes. But this time, when I reinstalled it, all my files were gone! With this situation, can I transfer all my current files from my iphone to my new iTunes library? I don't mind losing my music but I just want to safely sync my iphone to this new iTunes library without erasing my current apps and photos. Hope you guys can help me!
So, I have the iphone 4.Recently, I've had to wipe the hard drive of my computer to start new due to viruses and such. All my music and videos that were there aren't anymore because I have not made any iTunes purchases. My problem is that I updated iTunes and it asks me to "Are you sure you want to remove existing music, videos etc" because I have another libraries, with the other library being complete gone, how do I sync new music and videos without having to remove anything? Please help.
I have been getting this error message for a while... it seems to be the only thing that helps is deleting all my photos and all my music and the bigger space sucking apps.... however what good is the phone if i have to delete everything i use in order to download something new.... What am i doing wrong? I dont want to keep deleteing all my music or pics just so i can buy one or two songs from itunes...
Hi my iphone won't sync with iTunes over wifi. When I plug if in with the USB cable it shows up then disappears in iTunes. It also sometimes won't charge. I have to keep plugging it and unplugging it until it charges. I thought it was the cable but that doesn't explain not syncing over wifi. I have the white 16GB iphone 5 and 2012 MacBook Pro with mountain lion osx

Okay so my sister recently upgraded to an iphone 5 because her iphone 4s got a bit wet and it broke the camera. She gave me the 4s but it turns out it has quite a few irritating problems:The camera flash is always on. I tried a few software fixes that had worked for other people but no joy.The camera itself doesnt work. The shutter in the app doesnt open.The dock connector needs to be put at an angle for it to charge or sync and a slight movement can cause it to disconnect.The glass on the back is a bit cracked.The speakers don't work and it looks as if it is connected to a docking station in the music app when there are no headphones connected.She had this phone for over a year so there is no warranty but I have no problem with fixing/replacing some hardware myself. Would somebody be able to help me or point me in the direction for help with these probelms? any help or tips are greatly appreciated.
I've tried changing caller ID( iphone > Settings > Messages Received At > Caller ID you should list the Apple ID that you are using in Messages.) and I've tried signing out of iCloud, NOTHING WORKS! please help
It used to be I'd update my apps in iTunes and then plug in my iphone and it would sync the updated apps to the phone. It won't do that anymore, I now have to update the apps from the phone's App Store app. Anybody else have this problem, and how did you solve it?
Hi folks, Great news a month ago about HBO Go's support of Airplay in-app. However, whenever I try to stream content to my Apple TV, I only receive video. I'm using the latest Apple TV firmware (5.2.1) and an iphone 4s with 6.1.3. Oddly enough the HBO "Intro" video standard on this application will stream with audio, but main features never have audio. Likewise, Other applications supporting Airplay (Youtube, etc.) will successfully stream both video and audio to the Apple TV. Any idea what's going on? Thanks so much!
Still having app problems. Done the restarting done the deleting app and reinstalling it. Done the resetting to manufactures setting and still app crashes??? Any ideas
Hey all. I've downloaded the app VPN Fife to my iphone 5 from a friends appartment, on their VPN. Works great. So, I want to sync to my Macbook pro, thinking it would just transfer over via the sync. It won't, not sure it even sees in on my phone. How do I get this copied over to my iTunes on my laptop. I'd like to sync it to my iPad now too.
My iphone 5 has been in store for what, 9 days. Getting impatient, my iphone had finally been recieved by Apple. Unfortunately, I was expecting an replaced iphone as my iphone had been completely destroyed by the post office. They dropped the phone at least 5 times, reporting they would request express service and call apple up. This issue had been fixed and I was requesting a replacement iphone. I would please like to know if my iphone has been sent in the post yet, and if it has been replaced or serviced. I am very new to this and I would like your support ASAPRepair Status Product:iphone 5 (GSM, CDMA)Serial Number:F2*******TWFRepair ID:****Service Requested:April 17, 2013Status:Product replacement pendingStep 1 RequestApril 26, 2013: Product received by service centerStep 2 ServiceApril 26, 2013: Service completedStep 3 ReturnApril 26, 2013: Product replacement pendingShipping Address:Taranganba,Queensland ,4703Australia <Edited By Host>
without doing anything I noticed my apps disappearing. First I noticed my YELP app gone, then Netflix app gone, then Instagram gone! I did not delete them because I use these apps frequently. I went to itunes to sync my apps and it shows that I have them on my phone but they won't appear on my phone. Where are they and what happened? Are they invisible on my iphone but visible on itunes?
I made full reset deleting everything from phone and for 5 hours now it displays a moving circle in the screan and nothing happens
Hello!Im new to the forum but after looking through the forums relating to this issue and trying everything suggested i still have a problem with deleteing voice memo's! The problem:My iphone has no music songs, videos etc on at all only apps and photos. I recently restored from back up but chose to add my songs manually but before i even got that far the voice memo's playlist was already on my iphone and 123 voice memo's are on the phone and are also in the "music" section of the iphone, these voice notes are from last year! I have deleted all voice memos from the app itself and also deleted all voice memos from itunes itself and then sync'd but these voice memos remain! Itunes wont let me delete the voice notes from the iphone through itunes whether that be though the playlist or through the music tab and as they dont show up anywhere on the phone im out of ideas! Has any one got a solution? its driving me insane and its over 2GB of voice notes and i think its contributing to my 3.5GB of "other"! Any help would be greatly appreciated and apologies if this has been covered before! Thanks RinaRoo
I have an old 3G as well as a 4S. Initially I set up a separate iTunes account for the 4S as I was worried I'd lose my old apps for 3G (as older, compatible versions aren't kept in the iTunes store so once they're gone, they're gone...). 3G is set up to sync with iTunes, 4S is inly syncing mail and conatcts through Exchange but hasn't been synced with an iTunes library for the reason above. Is there a way to sync both phones off the same iTunes account, so I can set up each phone with some music, as well as apps, without iOS 5 versions overwriting the exisitng apps for the 3G? To complicate things further, I don't want to sync photos, contacts, messages, etc. I just want to avoid having to duplicate all my music and pay for all the apps all over again. Suggestions? Cheers
i updated my iphone 4s to 6.1.3 and since then I cannot sync or "drag & drop" any music to my iphone. I have done a hard reset, restore to factory settings, deauthorize / authorize and pretty much anything else that involves checking and unchecking and as I expecting nothing worked. Am I missing some little detail because everything thing worked just fine before with itunes that is. I cannot do any wifi sync since my phone is also greyed out with wifi and bluetooth. If anyone has any other suggestions please entertain me because I am at a loss here.
The devices in question are an iphone 5 and a 3rd generation iPad, both run the latest iOS bits available and I am signed in with my Apple Id on both devices. The behavior I'd like to experience is:the settings (Stations and Podcasts within Stations and particular Podcast settings) set on one device just show up on the other device.both devices show the exact same played, partly-played and unplayed podcasts in their stations. Isn't this the way things should "just work" in the Apple world? The reason for asking is that my two devices do not seem to talk to each other and cannot locate a way to get them to synchronize. Thank you, eugen
