Apple Watch Series 3 and several different iPhones: I pair the watch and the iPhone and the iPhone says you need to update the watch to complete pairing. When I hit "update watch" it eventually says "unable to update, not connected to the internet". I am connected to the internet through a 300mbs wifi connection. I've tried a few different networks and iPhones. What am I missing?

Hi
Part 1:
My new MacBook (which I acquired to do my Javascript phone games dev or test, with my other MacBook and fixed dead iPhone, needs to have an optimal Javascript game dev environment set up on os X.

I've used Atom IDE already, and think it's fine. Is that the best way to go? Must I do a standard Atom MacBook install, like before?

I have an iCloud drive account, and one expert suggested I utilize a cloud system. I am open to that. If that facilitates seamless posting of my game online, and good project structure, it's a win win. Using an iCloud is basically indistinguishable from the file system?

Part 2:
I'd love to be able to see an example game that is just a one-screen with a 'start' button that enters a game loop of a circle/ animated GIF that can be finger-tapped, finger-dragged, mouse-clicked or mouse-dragged to a destination. That would set me going very well. The mouse, key and touch listeners look straight-forward. Keyboard shouldn't be a problem. Are most games mouse, keys and touch if appropriate?

Thanks

I am using iPhone 6 Plus, I tried to export Whatsapp chat with Media of 1 contact and send it via the Mail app.

The attachment was 48MB, the Mail app provided two options for me to choose as the attachment was too big.
Option 1: Use Mail Drop
Option 2: Trying sending attachment.

I selected Option 2, but I never receive any error, never receive the email, and I even cannot find it in the Outbox.

Where is the email then?

Similar to this article: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/10/technology/personaltech/sharing-large-files-with-mail-drop.html

I need a recommendation for adding Wi-Fi to two Dell Precision Workstations. The situation:

Router: Linksys WRT-1900ACS with dual 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks. At present the 5 GHz is used only by a smart TV and one iPhone. The 2.4GHz network supports three Internet radios.

The Internet connection will be Comcast Xfinity 300 Mb/s. The Linksys router will connect to the Comcast modem and provide the local Wi-Fi. I do not plan to use the Comcast modem's Wi-Fi capability.

Computers: Dell Precision Workstations T3600 (Windows 7) and T5810 (Windows 10). Both have available USB 3.0 ports. Expansion slots available:

T3600: PCI, PCIe x16, PCIe x1
T5810: PCI, PCIe 2.0 x1, PCIe 3.0 x8

At present both PCs use Ethernet hardwire connections to the router. I'm moving and may not be able to run Ethernet cables. This is why I need Wi-Fi capability.

I want responsive Internet connections although there is very little video downloading.

What is the best approach? USB? Expansion cards? Please suggest specific products if practical.

We have a few newer iPhones and when it sends sends a picture out to an email. It shows the pictures out embedded as opposed to attached. Now If I look phone to phone it shows it as an attachment. I am not sure if this is being caused from the phone side or the email side. We are running exchange with office 365 pro plus

I recently upgraded from aniPhone 7 plus to an 11 Pro MAx. All my data was on iCloud which transferred to the new phone, or so I thought. When I look at the 8000 or so photos and videos, some appear to be on my new phone and open up immediately, some I get a message that the phone needs to download the file first before it opens.

I want to make sure that all my data is residing locally on my new iPhone. How do I accomplish this?

I have an Amazon Echo Auto. My car uses an aftermarket bluetooth adapter for the radio as it is a 2007 auto. I can pair the Echo auto with the iPhone (tried 7 plus and new 11 Pro plus - same issue) without difficulty, but the minute the iPhone pairs with the car bluetooth, the Amazon Echo Auto no longer sees the iPhone.

I went on youtube and on line - cant find any solutions.

The user was visiting the web page for thinkwellgroup.com (which looks to be a pretty amazing company).  They were using a recent model iPhone and were browsing in Safari for the iPhone. They wanted to call for information on behalf of their company, and saw a phone number on the bottom of the home page.

They then had some sort of message from switch.com appear on their Safari screen.  Switch.com is a colocation company.

Should they be worried about iPhone security?  Could there be an issue with a colocated website?

Thanks.

I have a concern of installing apps where they request my iPhone/iPad password.  So some questions:

  • When an apps request authenticating their apps with my iPhone password, it it possible that apps extract the password?
  • Also, using a Two-factor authentication for Apple ID, would that protect my Apple data even though I gave the password to the apps requesting it?

(sorry for my ignorance and maybe is nothing to worry about, but wanted the expert input on this - so any help would be greatly appreciated).

Hi
I was glad to find this phone-game javascript code on GitHub below. It has answered many of my recent E-E Q's.- confirmed expert help!
I played it on my MacBook from my webspace directory and the keys work, as expected w its clean code,
but I also found that finger-pinch-resizing works on my iPhone, which I was v.glad to see.

I can't see where the finger-screen-touching pinch code is in the javascript. There are no touch keywords in the folder. , only onkey events
What am I missing on this tiny platform game, on GitHub    here
?

Thanks

Dear user,
this is a very important problem.
 
As consultant in a legal proceedings, I have an audio file created by voice recorder of Apple. The duration of this file is only 20 seconds long; there is the suspect that the original file was 30 seconds long and that the first 10 second was cutted. I should prove it. My instrument is Sonic Visualizer, due to I can see all frequency graph; and Exiftool, due to I can see all meta of file. Exiftool don’t help me (the meta of a genuine Voice file is the same of a cute file by Quick Time). The question is:

in the frequency or audio graph there is a particular characteristic / silent sort period / device “signature” / something else at the beginning of a voice file, which is present in all file produced by the recorder of iPhone?

Thank you very much!

Hello all,
I had double auth. using Microsoft authticator on my iPhone.
upon replacing my iPhone, I love my authenticator app, as I noticed I was supposed to enable icloud backup within the app settings itself.

anyways, I tried logging into Microsoft account, to notice I forgot my password, and I lost my authenticator app.
I can try guessing my password, but it would take the too many attempts.
I tried using the authentication with my alternate email address, but it wasn't enough, I had to use the app still as dual authentication.
I am unable to reach out to Microsoft for support.
although I still have access to my emails from outlook and ios mail.
any ideas?

I know people will say "dump the ipod it's too old" but I have an ipod touch with 4.2.1 IOS and when I install an app, it syncs fine but when I try and start the app, it won't work.  It tries for about 30 seconds and then closes.  This only happens with a few apps.  

Also, when I load an app and it syncs, I try to find the app on the ipod touch and it is not there.  Any reason for this?

I'm planning to build an Android and iPhone app that allow users to post questions. However, users won't necessarily have to register to post their questions. They can simply post a question straight right after installing the app. On the other hand, users can register and login to post their questions. The advantage of registering is users will be able to keep history of their posts and the like.

I want to allow non-registered users the option to register and get all their posts that were posted before registration to be moved into their registered accounts atomically. For example, if a user downloads the app and asks 3 questions before registration. After the third question, the user registers, logs in, and continues to post questions. I want the 3 questions that were posted before registration to be part of/moved to the registered account so when user logs in, the user can see the 3 questions in the logged in account. Is this possible?

I thought of capturing device ID when a user posts a question without registration and then when a user signs up, I will capture the signed up user's Device ID and if the signed up device ID matches the device ID of the posts that were posted without registration, I'll shift all of these posts into the signed up account because the signed up account has device ID that match posts device ID. Does it sound like a good idea?

I'm currently brainstorming the workflow of the app. I don't have codes on hand yet.

Hi!  I have a super problem and hope it's something I am overlooking!  This morning I installed in my iPhone X IOS13.  All seems ok, but for some reason I lost my tasks.  After installed I went to checkup on my data, including the Task to see if all ok and all were present.  

I just went to make a task and there is no TASKS only Reminder - all my Tasks GONE!

I check my iCloud account , Outlook and iPhone and no evidence of the Tasks ever being there - even no "Completed" tasks - see image belos:
no tasks
Help please! Did I lose them? Is the Task option (if any) set Off? Help!!! How can I have mys tasks back!
(very stupidly I did't do a backup of my iPhone - I always do a backup but since all my previous IOS installs has been seamless with no problem, I just didn't do it)

Hello Phone Experts!

I recently purchased an Android smart phone, and I really love it. A friend of mine would like to also upgrade her phone and would prefer to upgrade to an Apple IOS phone. Specifically to one of the newest Apple 11 phones. She is very familiar with the IOS interface since she also has an Ipod touch, so that explains her favoritism of Apple.
So we are wondering, should she order her IPhone 11 online through Apple corporation, or should she instead place an order through her current carrier who is horizon? I also imagine she could also buy it through Best Buy. Anyway does anyone have any advice on the best approach to purchasing the phone?
