As a new forum member, I apologise for arriving with questions when I have yet to contribute anything here myself. However: I've tried to find answers via Apple Support's pages but got nowhere so am hoping clarity may be found here. My situation is that I am a tech novice who owns a 7-year-old Sony Ericson mobile phone that isn't 'smart' but suits me fine, and an Asus Transformer TF101 Android tablet which I purchased in April 2011 and has served me faithfully until last month when it ceased to function properly. I know nothing about Apple phones, pods, pads or computers but decided to treat myself to a new 9.7" iPad Pro tablet. I purchased it on Saturday. I am in the middle of learning how to use it and also, learn about its operating system. I imagine this will take me some time. My questions arise from the fact that alarmingly, I have now received not one but two warnings from Apple, and I have had to change my password not once but twice. I used my new tablet for the first time on Saturday to set up my Apple ID and iCloud. On Sunday Apple emailed to say: "your Apple ID was just used to accept GarageBand from the App Store on a computer or device that had not previously been associated with that Apple ID". I do not even know what GarageBand is. Still less have ever ordered it or "accepted" it. Today, Monday, another Apple email says: "Your Apple ID was used to sign in to FaceTime and iMessage on an iPad Pro named (my name) iPad." But I don't know what either of those are and certainly haven't signed in to them. So within 48 hours of buying an Apple product I am being warned that I have done this, that and the other with this phone . . . when I haven't. My gmail email address, used with my Apple ID, is unique to me and has never been hacked or muddled up with anyone else's gmail address. I hardly think someone has suddenly hacked it; the coincidence between these warnings and my purchase of this new product is too much to ignore. I also think that after changing one password -- the original one which apparently resulted in me "accepting GarageBand" -- it's highly unlikely my account was then hacked again, this time to allow someone other than me to sign into whatever "FaceTime" might be. My husband, who sadly knows nothing about Apple either, says all he can think of is that what's happening is actually to do with the device rather than with me. He has discovered that GarageBand comes free with the iPad Pro, so he wonders if Apple has automatically made me "accept it". Yet why Apple should warn me about this alleged "App Store acceptance" when I've never been anywhere near the App Store, and also without any other word of explanation, is a mystery. Similarly with FaceTime and iMessage. I have not signed into either yet am being told I have -- and that if I haven't, then "please change your password". I know I'm a complete novice here but have to say I find this all very discouraging for a £499 product. I have never received messages like this before in all the years of using my Android tablet yet here I am, 2 days into using this Apple tablet, and stuff seems to be happening over which I have no control. If anyone can help me understand what is going on, that would be much appreciated because trying to get any sense out of Apple "support" and "community questions" isn't getting me anywhere. Thank you. PS: In case anyone asks, my iPad Pro is brand new from a UK High Street authorised Apple retailer (not eBay or Amazon or Amazon marketplace) and is the UK model. It isn't pre-owned / grey import / refurbished.
