ITUNES 10.1 update erases 65 songs in library
When I asked about my perceived difficulty w/ 10.1 I expected this community to have some input.... After a week I had to find I'm not alone. It has been reported in PC World that there are issues w/ 10.1 where many are loosing their music library after downloading the iTUNES update. My question is why I'm not seeing any other posts on the subject?
Ipad is disabled try again in 21 minutes
Well, this was after it asked me to update. I already had my itunes set to sync only the selected files, but when it did the update, an error came up and it erased everything and made both my ipads the way they came from the factory.
I read this in the news today. The whole text is below because the forum wont let me post links:
Could it be apple did this to all devices?
One ipad is acting strange now, for example, it was not coming on, and it said to wait 20 minutes before I could use it again
It said: "ipad is disabled. Try again in 21 minutes"
It worked after 20 minutes, but it scares me that itunes gave my ipads some sort of bug, and Im afraid to conect them to itunes ever again.
"(WIRED news: iPhone software update squashes location-data 'bugs') -- On Wednesday, Apple released a software update for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices, fixing a flawed location-storage method that raised privacy concerns last month.
The update, iOS version 4.3.3, reduces the size of the file that stores geodata on iOS devices -- meaning it will no longer contain a history of location data going back as far as one year ago.
Additionally, with the update installed, iTunes won't back up the iOS device's location database file, meaning the geodata will no longer be stored on your computer.
Last, when customers disable the Location Services setting on their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, it deletes all the information stored in the location file, according to Apple.
The software update comes in response to a security issue illuminated by two data scientists, who discovered that an unprotected file inside Apple's iOS software stores a log of geodata accompanied with time stamps, creating a digital trail of a customer's general moves for the past year.
The Wall Street Journal later reported that even when location services were turned off on the iPhone, the device was still collecting geodata.
Apple eventually explained that iOS devices are not actually tracking a customer's precise movements, but rather, iOS devices are collecting information about nearby cell towers and Wi-Fi access points, which helps speed up location services.
The company added that "bugs" caused iOS devices to continue storing location data even when location services were turned off. Apple also said it made a mistake by making the location database file too large.
The iOS 4.3.3 update is a free download available through iTunes. The download is 666 megabytes large."
