My daughter informed me this morning that she is unable to locate her iphone 4s.  When I log into Find My Iphone it shows me that her phone is offline.  I am guessing her battery is dead.  Is there anyway to see a log of where it has been recently, so that I can see if she left it at her grandparents or maybe at a friends house.

How do I merge iMessages in macOS and iOS latest versions?

I want iMessages sent from my iPhone to be automatically merged with Messages on my Macs - High Sierra.

The reverse should also be true. That is I could start a message on Mac and finish/send later from my iPhone.
They finessed me into entering a 6 digit passcode. I understand the security ideas.

Is there a way to get rid of that?

Daughter lost her iPhone 8. We deactivated it at sprint. Found out she had no passcode on it. Can the thief use the phone for anything?  Hoping not so it may be turned in at school.
I brought this 2.5 year old iPhone 6+ to a local Apple authorized lab/workshop & tell
them I have this issue: they ran a diagnostics & said it's not a hardware issue & should
be an IOS issue.

My wife had since upgraded the IOS from 9.x to 10.x & I recently upgraded it to 11.2.1
& still having this intermittent issue.  The lab said if upgrading IOS did not help, may
need to wipe IOS out completely & reinstall : anyone thinks this will work?

I have quite a bit of photos, contacts & applications esp (MobileIron, licensed Mobile
threat Prevention tool) so reinstall is quite a hassle to me.

I can attach a screen shot of the diagnostics results if this helps

I have several audio books I would like to put into my iPhone X so I can listen to them on my iPhone.

These audio books have each chapter saved as an .MP3 file.

I have dragged and dropped these files into iTunes and have also attempted to import them from a DVD but when I search for them on my iPhone (by the book or author name) I am unable to find them anywhere.

What is the correct process to use so I can later listen to these audio books on my iPhone X?
I accessed iFixit website, formymobile.co.uk, repairuniverse.com, and techrepublic.com and can't find any complete guide.  My objective is to replace the charging port in an A1822 iPad.  I have the part, but no guide.   Thanks.

After unsuccessful search of how to 'Copy music files from Mac High Sierra to iPhone 8' which returned how to copy from phone to Mac, or PC to/from iPhone, I seek knowledge from the Experts.

I want to copy Music files (mp3, AAC,) from iTunes 12.7 to iPhone 8 Plus [iOS 11.12.1] iTunes. Most of the music was not purchased from iTunes - some is at least 25 years old.

I looked into AirMore+ - could not find suitable Mac version. And complains not finding my working my 50 Mbs WiFi connection.

I would really to copy/drag - n - drop all in 1 set, there are at least 350 selections (1.7 Gb in iTunes).
I want to transfer my apps from an existing iPhone 6 to a new iPhone 8. I basically want my phone to be setup identically to my old phone. Thank you.
A customer of mine imported several audio books into iTunes.

Each audio book chapter is saved as an MP3 file.

The problem is that the same audio books were imported several times.

How can I remove the duplicate iTunes audio book files from  iTunes, the user's iPhone X, & authorized computers?

I need to make sure that only the duplicate files are removed and nothing else.

How can this be done?
Are there any iPhone apps currently available that will provide auto complete suggestions after the first few numbers of a phone number have been entered on the iPhone?

These auto complete suggestions will come by querying my contacts, saved, and dialed phone numbers on the iPhone.

This is similar to typing in the first few characters of an email address within Outlook and then having a list of suggested email addresses appear.
I have an iPhone SE.  I was on iOS 10.3.3 for a while and was avoiding iOS11 because I'm not too keen on updating to the latest version until I stop hearing the multitude of reports of issues on the latest version.

However, Apple tricked me when I thought I was dismissing/delaying their update and they updated my iPhone overnight.  This was a few weeks ago this happened.  And its just been incredibly frustrating using Messages since that happened.  I've tried restarting my iPhone, deleting a ton of older messages, but the app's performance is just atrocious.

When I am typing a message it lags to produce the word into the message.  When I press send its laggy in sending the message.  When I try to attach pictures there is a delay too.  The scrolling is not terrible, but noticeable lag is there.  I don't see this type of issue on other apps I use on the iPhone, so I believe I've narrowed it down to Messages app.

What can I do to get back to the great app performance I had when on iOS 10.3.3?

My iPhone does regular backups to iCloud.
For some weird reasons, I have forgotten my Iphone Backup Password (Itunes) - It is encrypted.

I tried few ones I have but none worked...

So I deleted my backups , and removed completely everything related to Apple (Bonjour, Apple, Itunes...) ALL of it.
I restarted my PC, reinstalled Itunes, and to my surprise, it again asks for the password !!! (It is ticked by default !!!)

How do I completely clean my PC and restart over with Itunes ?

I wanted to learn creating app on iOS and need get a Mac computer.  I don't have any experience with iOS development yet, though being a well experienced programmer. With a budget of $600 or less, I need suggestions on what's a good computer/platform to buy (including used ones), so I can have a smooth start and quick success in get a sample working  app onto, say, an iPad, while features and speed of the machine are not yet my main concern.


I have multiple users that range from iPhone 5 through iPhone 8 that since upgrading to IOS 11.x have had intermittent problems and the fix has been to remove the account and put the account back on the device.
For some users this problem occurred once.
I also have 4 or 5 users that the problem happens multiple times per week.
There seems to be no rhyme or reason to the phone or ios level except that they are at least on IOS 11.

I am hoping someone can point me to some exchange logs and tell me what to look for to resolve this issue.  

It also seems that my exchange inetpub logs now are very large.  Maybe something in those logs will help with this resolution

We know there have been multiple problems with IOS 11.

Any info is appreciated.  et me know what additional information is needed

Hello Guys

I have a Iphone 7Plus woth the latest version of IOS installed.

I got a new Iphone X and would like to transfer my data to it from the 7Plus.
hnfortunately the backup on the cloud is taking too long since the data it big and my connection is not good.
Can I use Itunes on My PC (windows 10) to backup my 7Plus and restore my X from it ?
Over xmas want customers to go to voice mail but friends and family to ring / alert

iPhone is easy / do not disturb allow favorites

What about android ? My mate has android and wants to do the same idea as my iPhone.

I have a 64 GB iphone 6S - a little over 2 years old now?  It says it has 37GB available. I've deleted apps, pictures, etc that I am not using.

Am I expecting too much for better performance? I notice sometimes when I delete an app - it takes somethign like 5 seconds after clicking x for it to go away. Other times, it goes away right away.

Opening contacts (which is linked to o365 and i have 8000 contacts) or mail or other thigns... I'll get a white screen for a couple / few seconds as the app opens up.

I make a point to close apps that are in the background.  I have background update turned off. I've hard reset (hold home and power button for a few seconds till you get the white screen), etc.

Browsing in safari takes a few seconds for pages to load, etc...  am I expecting too much? are things that much better with iphone 8 or x? My kids have the same phone and want to upgrade.  

I do get through the day on a single charge sometimes (so battery is good /fair).  it's more processing power.  Which I read is something that apple (sometimes / always?) slows down on older phones?  

Is there a way to tell where the bottlenecks are?

Are there any apps for adding the tethering feature (so I can surf the internet on my laptop connected to my iPhone) on a non jailbroken Sprint PCS iPhone X running iOS 11.2 (15C114)?

I already have an unlimited data plan through Sprint PCS.
Have new iPhone # - how to I create list (single group) of all iPhone Contacts which can be used as To: in Messages App?

Want to inform all [Contacts] list members of new #.
Hello fellow experts!

I’m looking at getting my kid a phone, but I want to only allow calls or messages from numbers in the contacts.

I understand I can use the Do Not Disturb feature to accomplish this, but what would keep the child from simply turning off Do Not Disturb, and then placing and receiving calls/messages to/from whoever they want?
