    Thank you very much. So it's not likely to be some kind of infection on the iPad?

    iPad IOS14.6 Safari bookmark "changed"!

    I have the BBC Weather website for my area as a bookmark on favourites and have had it, unchanged, for years. Today when I clicked on it an IOS message came up warning that this was an insecure site and I should close it. The web address was a great long one - not the normal one. In my idiotic...

    iCloud x 2

    At the moment I have iTunes on a PC, an iPad2 and two iPods (mine and the wife's - very old versios). iCloud will "push" apps, etc. onto all devices, I understand. So, if we get an iPhone each, will iCloud put all apps, etc. onto the iPad and BOTH iPhones? Or, do I have to buy a second app...

    Getting spooked!

    Just about to spend a fortune when I heard that MMS was not possible. It seems to be on O2 though. Now I hear that ringtones and text alerts can't be changed! :mad: I have an MP3 that I like as my ring tone and one I like as text alert. They're un-restricted, just things I've recorded. So...

    many pods make light work

    So, the Mrs and I both have iPods and may soon have iPhones. Both pods sync to iTunes equally (I know, it means I have some Boyzone on mine but, hey!). This is about 50Gb of songs. With the iPhone the storage is only 32Gb, yes? Then there will need to be room for apps, etc. Is it easy to...

    iPod photo + new iPod video

    Hi, My old iPod photo has been going along nicely with iTunes using Firewire. Now the wife has ordered herself the new video version (80Gb). Can I update her iPod without installing a later version of iTunes? Should I? Would my old machine work with the new beast? Will my old go-pod...

    Previously, when I left my iPod off for two days or so, it went into a deep sleep mode. Now it doesn't. The only thing I do differently is to leave it with the hold on. Would this change things? Cheers
