Editorial: It's Time To Fix Lightning Dock + Case Compatibility

The accessories people don’t talk amongst themselves.  Obviously, the dock industrial designers were unaware that Apple was making cases for the new iPhones.  I guess the “customer experience” mantra does not hold true for Apple’s accessories.  The MFI program is thorough and detailed but only applies to third parties- not Apple.

iOS 7: Playing tracks by Genre

The best way I have figured out to be able to go straight in and just shuffle all the songs I have in a particular genre (my main mode of listening) is to create a smart playlist in iTunes that “contains” each genre that I have that I would be interested in doing this for.  I know sounds a bit long, but if you create it with live updating you don’t have to touch it again until you need to add a list for a new genre.  I have iTunes match so that helps that all my songs are always available and these smart playlists automatically appear on my phone, but it is a super simple way for us iTunes Match customers to get to the “play all in a genre” endpoint!

iPhone 5/5s docks and case compatibility

For the 5c I understand Apple would make a dock because you don’t really need a case. For the 5s however you do need a case which is why I had to go for The Lightning dock which works with cases.

Restoring an iCloud backup to an older iPhone

My son put my iPhone 4 into the dogs water bowl, and will no longer work. I have an iPhone 3, I can’t transfer I could info because of the iOS 7 on iphone4 and iOS 6 on iphone3. Is there a way I can get at least my pictures somehow so that I can save them.

Easing Your Transition To iOS 7

After my ios 7 update, my phone no longer pairs with my MINI.  The car Bluetooth comes up as “discoverable” and then when I go to connect, it says that I need to be nearer the car or turn the car bluetooth on.  I try to pair in the car while the MINI Bluetooth is on.  Worked on previous ios version.

Help.

My purchased ringtones have vanished. Any idea how to retrieve them?

Sean W.: I’d say that OCDock w/ spring loaded base will work, but $80?! That’s just too much, especially with no audio out.

Autofilling a Device from iTunes

Jesse, same question as above, accept in my case the daughter’s hard drive will have taken a dump and there’s no library to sync back to. I cancelled the autofill quickly but there’s 100s of greyed out songs just sitting on my iphone 4 waiting to finish syncing. How can get this data off the device?

Switching an iTunes Store account to a different country

First I see no “Quick link” on the right hand side of the i-tunes store homepage. Second when I try and do an update it says “your account is not in this store” but gives me no clue how to change it. Gawd I hate apple products.

Instant Expert: Secrets & Features of iOS 7.0

@Shaunna (#17): Marimba is actually still there—you’ll find the older ringtones under a “Classic” sub-menu along with all of the other pre-iOS 7 sounds.

iTunes Radio: Requirements for ad-free listening

We actually tested this scenario before providing the answer in this article, and in our case as long as we were signed in with the same iTunes Store account as the paid iTunes Match subscription, we had an ad-free experience.

While you don’t appear to need the iTunes Match feature enabled on the device, you definitely do need to be signed in to the iTunes Store account that you’re using iTunes Match with.

Note that I’ve heard reports that some people are hearing ads even with iTunes Match actually enabled on their iPhone, so it seems this may just be a bug on Apple’s end that needs to be resolved.

It’s also worth noting that iTunes Match subscribers do not receive a higher number of skips per hour—contrary to earlier reports, the skips limitation is the same for both free and “paying” listeners.

iTunes Radio: Requirements for ad-free listening

Same thing.

All indications from Apple info on the matter says that you need Match enabled on the device.

In other words, the answer in this article is not correct.

iOS7: Accessing Music Controls

I think the original poster was referring to double tapping home **from the lock screen.** This has been possible up until IOS 7, as I also used it everyday.

I’m annoyed that it is no longer possible, as I could turn on music in the car without having to take my eyes off the road and look at my phone.

Instant Expert: Secrets & Features of iOS 7.0

The new iOS has screwed the alarm clock function for many users.  It’s is so quiet that you miss it and sleep through. There is also to marimba tone which was the best alert.  Si in short, I can no longer rely on my alarm clock to wake me.  Very upset since it used to work so well and you could have the screen locked.  Will you be returning the alarm click to its former glory? I have ready countless posts , all with the same complaint.  People have been late for work and even missed flights. Not a smart change in this upgrade

iOS 7: First-Time Set Up or Upgrading From iOS 6

I, would that the above were true in my case.  My phone was being upgraded, yet presented as if it was a totally new install (based on the description above) - then the “slide to setup” button was completely non-functional.  All the sliding attempts in the world made no difference… as if the digitizer suddenly crumped.  I’ve seen inquiries on the web about this behavior, but no answers from Apple yet.

Easing Your Transition To iOS 7

I would like to see an option to turn off the “Flying” transitions from app to app or app to home screen.  Never realized how often I swapped applications before but the new transitions are annoying.

iPhone 5/5s docks and case compatibility

Since the 5C is slightly thicker than the 5s…  any chance the 5S in leather case would fit into the 5C dock?

iOS7: Accessing Music Controls

@Larry (#3): Thanks for pointing that out. I’ve amended the article to note that. During the betas, this required a triple-tap, but it makes more sense that only a single tap should be required.
