Just ask Siri to play your requested genre and it will shuffle just like it used to. Easy breezy.

Restoring iCloud backup to a second iPhone

I was trying to sync my contacts with Icloud, and I was asked what it should do with the previous contacts and I instructed them to delete it, but was not aware that they would delete my new contacts!  Is there any way that I can recover this???

iPhone 5/5s docks and case compatibility

The Elevation Lab iPhone dock is the best dock I’ve tried. It’s pricey, but works with and without cases and looks fantastic.

Deleted photos in Camera Roll also removed from albums

I only seem to be able to add photos to my photo stream singly, i.e. one at a time. Is there a way to select an entire folder and add it as one ?

Deleting old iCloud Backups

That’s a great guide if you want to delete an iCloud backup, but make sure you have an iTunes backup at hand for restoring, you never know when you might need it!

Deleted photos in Camera Roll also removed from albums

I find this to be the most infuriating system of photo management that I can imagine (a problem Gmail shares with its similar email tagging system).  My fondest hope for iOS 7 was that it would allow one to actually “move” photos out of the camera roll into their own folders.  But, alas, it was not to be.

iOS 7: Playing tracks by Genre

Unfortunately the workaround does not work. I tried it and I typed Gospel. It did bring up 9 albums and 10 songs, but it only selected them because Gospel was some where in the title. It left out the other 150+ songs I have in this category. Frustratingly enough, I’ve resorted to the playlist and will look into iTunes Match

iMessages being sent as Text Messages

We don’t txt in our family, avoiding the txt’ing plan charges. Just started to use iMessage to send some quick airline travel progress updates, so we’re in the know, without slow email or having to interrupt the other person’s work day with calls/voice messages.

Both our iPhones have iMessage ON, “Send as SMS” OFF etc.

Despite those settings, according to VZW I sent a TXT two days ago. Checking iMessage, in the series of blue iMessages there is a blue one. It didn’t register with me at the time, but I’m quite sure I did not see a send as txt/sms bubble button at the time, I certainly know better than to hit that as we’re charged for every single one sent & received (which ends up being 50c/msg (25c x2)).

It is far from the end of the world, but certainly unexpected behavior when you have SMS OFF.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the plane was taxiing when I took the phone out of airplane mode, and a data connection was not established yet, when I typed “plane 2 landed”?
Or my spouse’s phone was out of data range?

Who knows.

Looking at Apple’s info it says that iMessages may be sent as txts and carrier charges will apply, without giving further details.

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

It does seem to be a bug in iOS 7.0.3, but it’s more of a refresh issue. If you reboot your iPhone or in some cases even just force-close and restart the Photos app, the Photo Stream photos will usually reappear.

Similarly strange things happen when you delete photos from your Mac or PC, such as after importing them into iPhoto or Aperture.

Separating family iTunes and iCloud accounts

Thanks so much for this explanation. It was spot on.

One question lingers, though for people who want to do this: What if the parent deletes some of the shared library on their own PC?

Parents who want to separate their kids’ accounts from their own usually want to get rid of their kids’ media from their library as well. Once the “Shared” library has been transferred to the child’s PC and the child’s PC is authorized for the parent’s library, what happens if the parent deletes the child’s media? Does it affect the child’s itunes library? How about if both parent and child backup to their respective iClouds? They’re both backing up their copy of the “shared” library.

iOS 7: Phone, FaceTime, Messages + Contacts

It seems that after the update, it won’t delete my contacts when I ask it. to. Some contacts never show up with the Delete button at the bottom after hitting “Edit”. Other contacts have the Delete button, and it seems to work when hitting it. However, once I return to my contacts, the contact I tried to delete invariably is still there.

Calendar entries disappear after enabling iCloud

This iCloud has me confused. I got the account after losing all contact. Now I have three sets of contacts and realize that my calendar does not show “holidays ” anymore. How can I show the old calendar?

Restoring Text Messages from an iCloud Backup

You must first have had a previous backup of the iPhone messages fro this to work as this thread describes:

The trouble is that I did not have a backup of my iPhone text messages neither on my PC (iTunes), nor within iCloud. :(

Receiving other users' iMessages when sharing an Apple ID

Thank you for sharing..finally someone gives a valid solution. Unlike FT and Imessage, FT audio doesnt have an option to untick associated email addresses and as me and my mum share id’s we each recieve each others phone calls. i am assuming and hoping that using a different ID for FT, FTA, Imsg will solve the issue and stop connecting our calls :)

The Complete Guide to Using the iTunes Store

I can’t log in to my iTunes account on a new ipod 5th gen. We tried setting up an account on the ipod several times and it didn’t work.

Tried setting it up on the computer and that worked. Now we go back to the ipod -still getting a message “your apple id or password is incorrect”. Since it was new, we tried resetting it to factory settings. Still didn’t work. Any ideas?

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

I have iOS 7.0.3 and this does not work for me. If I delete a photo from “Camera Roll”, it will be removed from the unified “Photos” also even though it is still in “My Photo Stream.” Is this a bug with the new version?
