The Complete Guide to Transferring your Content to a new iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

iPhone Data Transfer is another choice which lets you copy sms, contacts, notes, bookmarks, songs, vidoes, photos and call log etc from old iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5 to your new iPhone 5S or iPhone 5S.

Most important is these data will be merged perfectly on your new iPhone. No data loss worry.

Best luck!

iOS 7: Delete photos from Camera Roll without removing from Photo Stream

I am trying to free up space in iCloud. The iCloud overview tells me that most space is occupied by my Camera Roll (apprx 12 GB).

However, when I delete photos from my iPhone it does not seem to affect the space in iCloud. When I see the space photos occupy on my iPhone (apprx 4 GB) it is much smaller than in iCloud. How can this be and how can I reduce the size of Camera Roll in iCloud?

iMessage vs SMS/MMS messaging and text + data plans

The whole point of text messages is cheap and fast. It was invented to replace phone calls.  35 cents vs 10 cents.  1 minutes vs. 10 seconds. 

Data plans were invented for communication via email over cellular networks and internet browsing.  Large packages and download times, controlled by individuals based on need-to-know basis (i.e. informed consent).  People budget and buy data for what is was intended, not to replace normal telecommunications. iMessage is 10-times heavier than standard SMS for the same information exchange. Why would someone pay for 10-times more for communication requirements, or give up e-mail data so they can have overweight apple messaging? Even an email is cheaper and just as fast as an apple iMessage. It’s a technological joke on consumers.

Apple has conveniently thrown out the common case to sell a proprietary incompatible system by twisting the logic and marketing a false dependency to the masses.  Instead of fixing a broken design to work intelligently with common standards, Apple (they own iOS and all it’s code) can easily allow you to define transport protocols for your friends to solve this problem; they simply don’t care enough about our needs to do so. 

As long as consumers are willing to make excuses for them and pay the price and extra work, Apple doesn’t have to do diddly squat.  With $60 billion of cash they are sitting on, fixing this problem is so small it wouldn’t even put a dent in their coffers. They simply don’t care about implementation details as much as glitz and marketable hype that can be used to sell you more stuff.

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?

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.
