Remove old iCloud backup after restoring to a new iPhone

This article does answer the tricky part of the question: how do you DELETE the backup of the old iPhone from iCloud?  Turning on the new backup is easy.  Doing a “restore to default” on the old phone is easy. 

But how do you delete the backup of the old phone from iCloud? 

Furthermore, for someone like me who has ALSO been backing up in iTunes, how do I delete the local iTunes backup of my old phone from iTunes on my MacBook Air?

thanks,
Art

Deleting old iCloud Backups

I deleted my iCloud backup a month or so ago. I’m noticing that an app I used 2 years ago called “textplus” is still showing under my iCloud account when I search for apps. Why is it still showing this since I haven’t used it in 2 years AND deleted my backup. Help please

Hiding Purchased iBooks

This is an outrageous privacy violation. I recommend everyone dump this Big Brother application. Why is Apple entitled to permanently record every book one ever read? Just imagine if your public library did the same thing? It is especially offensive because the iBooks Store has many free books with innocuous sounding titles like “101 Best Jokes” that turn out to have racy images advertising erotica books. You want to share some jokes with your kid when she visits your office and now you can’t even delete the book permanently, but Apple will maintain a record of your purchase forever. Wow. And to think that Apple got all hot under the collar over what NSA is doing…

iOS 7: Playing tracks by Genre

The solution worked perfectly for me, thank you!  @MsDeonap, give it another try and make sure you scroll down further on your screen. Songs and albums come up first and then Genres bearing the search term show up on the bottom. Once you click on the Genre, swipe down so that the very top of the screen expands and you will see the shuffle icon to shuffle all songs in the Genre.

Resetting a forgotten passcode

I can’t restore my tablets this way.  A preference setting was made for “find my iPad”.  I can’t do a restore until I turn that off, but I can’t get to it because I can’t unlock it.  Now what?

@Tmtm to clear the cache is also by double-tap home button. Only unlike the 6, with 7 you just slide up the apps one by one.

Restoring iCloud Contact info from backup

The article says, “The easiest and most reliable way to do this is from your Mac or PC, assuming that you have a backup of your contacts there. Unlike on an iPhone, information restored to your computer should be pushed back up to the iCloud servers and then down to your iPhone from there.”

I have a contacts backup on my Mac. But when I Import it, the contacts appear briefly and then are discarded when the sync to iCloud happens. As you say, this is probably because the backed up database is “old” and the empty iCloud database is “new”.

How can I convince iCloud that I want to push to them instead of pull from them?

Transferring Contacts to a new iPhone

I recently moved from a 4s to a 5s iPhone and plan on giving it to my daughter for Xmas
I started to erased my pics from my old phone and was going to do the same with my contacts list but realized that the pics that were synced are being erased from my new phone
I saved the pics in the computer and wanted to do the same with my contact list cause I never saved them before but I can’t do it. I m afraid that if I wipe off the old phone my contact list will disappear from my new phone.
Y tried to sync the old one to the computer but I can’t do it
Help someone please!

Non-Bluetooth Lightning dock speakers

Almost all bluetooth speakers also have an aux in so that you can use them with the bluetooth off and run the sound through your iPod’s headphone jack. Not as elegant as a dock and no charging, but still a viable option where bluetooth is not permitted.

Accessing FaceTime call history on a Mac

We delete our iPhone call history from ‘recents’, but can still view the iPhone call history on our wireless phone bill. Is there a way to retrieve and view Facetime call history (after its deleted on the phone)?
