    Can't transfer new purchases, need to udpate iTunes?

    I decided to attempt to update my iphone 13Pro Max (can't change the sig file) to the latest iOS 15.4. I synced my phone first. Sometimes I buy music directly onto my phone. Certain playlists were duplicated. In iTunes, instead of Rock, there is now Rock and Rock 1. This happened for a couple...

    iphone 5s - can't open it

    I have an iphone 5s. It doesn't have cell service. Thinking of putting music on it for streaming. Problem- I don't know the 6 digit passcode. When I enter the passcode the phone is disabled for 15 mins. I have a 5s backup, but I am not sure if it belongs to this phone. I don't think it does...

    Spam iphone in Mail app

    Using the standard Mail app. There's no way to set filters in the Mail app- it's a useless piece of software. I can do this in Thunderbird for example. So I recently received some spam. I went to preferences in Mail to block all email from that sender. On the same day I then went into...

    SPAM on iPhone but not PC?

    Lately I have been getting a lot of SPAM directly on my iPhone using Apple's Mail application. However, when I keep them unread, and turn on my PC, open up my email client, these emails never appear. How is that possible? And what can I do on my phone to minimize this if at all. I was always...

    iTunes doesn't add music to my iTunes Library??

    I'm not sure what's going on. I am running iTunes v12.10.7.3. I bought quite a few songs from Apple's music store, all files went into the proper folders under my D:/My Music Directory. iTunes shows older songs in this > D:\My Music\Band Name, the Band's Name directory has 6 subdirectories-...

    I have an XsMax with iOS12 (stock OS when released). I may want to update to the latest iOS, my concern is I'll end up with a brick or some other issue. My phone works just fine now. I have a complete backup of my phone on my computer. IF I update to the latest iOS which is 14.4 and I don't...

    Music on iPhone XS-Max

    Someone told me there's a way to "download" music from Apple Music, and play the music even if you are not connected to the internet. Is this true? If so, how does one do it? 2. My phone has 256Gig capacity, with 217Gig available. Will putting 30-60 gigs of my music slow my phone down done...

    iPhone 7 Global Exchange Server Email- Stumped

    I'm coming from an Android phone, where all I had to do to search through a company's global email exchange was open the phone's email app and type in some characters in the To: field. However, with an iPhone 7 running iOS 12.0.1 this features seems not to exist at all. Rather the only way to...

    Mail app always opens into an inbox, not list view?

    I cannot figure this out. I have a few inboxes all from the same ISP. When I open my Apple mail app on my phone Xs max, iOS 12.0, lately it’s opening directly into one of the inboxes. It used to open into list view, so I could see which inboxes have mail. Note- mail doesn’t open into an email...

    Restoring a lower iOS to a new iPhone with later iOS??

    I have a feeling this isn't possible, but I'll ask. I have an iPhone X, running iOS 11.4., 64Gig of memory, only 50% used. I'll be getting an iPhone Xs Max, it came with iOS 12 on it. Am I able to take my backup of my X w/ iOS 11.4, and put onto the Xs Max that has a higher iOS? I think not...

    Wireless Headphones-- What's out there?

    I'm not a fan of losing the headphone jack at all! From the little I know, it seems Apple's wireless solution is the best out there, but at a high price. Are they in fact the best? They seem to allow the user to have the most control of features w/out interfacing w/the phone as much as other...
