    ITunes Sync

    Thank you to those who have tried to help me solve this problem. It is not critical but more like an annoyance. Thanks again.

    ITunes Sync

    Spent some time yesterday looking at the Playlist that started this whole mess. Went down the list to dtermine which songs were on the Mosic Playlist on PC and NOT on the IPad playlist. The "missing: songs are on the IPad in the Songs Library but do not show in the playlist on the IPad. No...

    ITunes Sync

    Twerppoet, Thanks for the reply. I have triedit all and have settings as directed to sync libraries, IOS at latest levels, etc. It is frustrating as the IPhones brought everything over but the IPads missed some. I can deal with that but it is aggravating. I was going to try the Optimize thing...

    ITunes Sync

    I have updated our phones to IPhone 12's and IPad's as well. Did the whole transfer thing and all seemed to go very well. One small glitch I have discovered is that when transfering music from Itunes the IPhones got all of ot but the IPads came up short and I do not know why. I attached them to...

    Battery Widget and Bluetooth

    Thanks for all the information. My wife can see the "Circles" just fine. My eyesight is poor and there is not enough contrast for me to see those indicators. This is not a problem as I seldom have a battery issue as I charge my phone & IPad routinely. I am not a widget person either. Thanks again.

    Battery Widget and Bluetooth

    Thanks for the help!

    Battery Widget and Bluetooth

    Both deviced are at the latest IOS level. To be honest I did not realize that there was a circle denoting the charge level. The contrast is so poor I could not see it. Thanks for the explanation. Too bad one cannot shoose the color of the charge level. Headphones are Beats and they work great...

    Battery Widget and Bluetooth

    The widget pics are attached. One is w/o the headphones and second is with but shows me nothing.

    Battery Widget and Bluetooth

    Probably a silly question but on my IPad Air and Iphone 12 the battery widget works fine until I activate a Bluetooth device. Then it shows a small picture of them bpth but no percentage. Id this normal or am I missing something here? Definitely not a show stopper. Thanks

    Family Sharing

    Thanks for the reply. I cannot get that far! It tells me I have to have an invite from me! Same thing if using IPad or IPhone. Can this be done from ICloud on PC?

    Family Sharing

    My wife and I each have IPhones and IPads and I also have a PC. All are included under Family Sharing. I assume that I set this up some years ago and I want to know how I determine who is the Organizer? If I go to Settings> Naeme>Family Sharing I see the 5 devices but how do I know which is the...

    ICloud addresses

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, that could be true but I have not figured out why it just occurred. I have edited the ones I have found but wanted to see if maybe there was something I screwed up.

    ICloud addresses

    I just set up my wife's IPad Pro - quite a unit! When she went to send an email she found that many of the email addresses had a second @icloud.com address along with the normal address she was used to using. How did these get added and how do we get rid of them? I manage our email...

    Missing messages

    Thank you for the reply. I have done that with no change. I have powered off and back on, etc. I am wondering if Time Warner/Spectrum has done something to WIFI. This is aggravating.

    Missing messages

    My wife and I both have IPhone 7's and IPad minis. We used to get Imessages and texts on both units but lately the IPad is NOT receiving the messages and I can no longer send on the IPad. I checked in the Internet and did the bit to be sure they were in sync but something else is going on here...

    Contact problem

    Sad to say but I solved my problem. Sad because there was a loose nut on the keyboard - me. Thank you for the reply. I went thru and checked what you had suggested. The contact that caused all this mess was a business and the one thing I did not set up was an email address. Duh! It was a long...

    Contact problem

    I added a contact to ICloud the other day and when I tried to send an email to this contact from my IPhone or IPad I could not find it. I then went back to the cloud to be sure it was there and did the same to my Gmail contacts. It was there but was NOT showing up as available for email on my...

    ITunes

    I did not think so as I never have before. I will try again as maybe I missed something. Thank you for the reply.

    ITunes

    I went to ITunes to buy a song. I have not used it for quite a while and it seems that now I have to pay a subscription price to join? Is this correct? Guess I am out of touch. Russ

    Finally bit the bullet and did the Reset All Settings. It fixed the problem and I only lost wifi connection, lock & home screen photo, and Imessage connection - had to redo Appleid pswd. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Just spent about 45 minutes online with Apple Support and they (He) did not seem to have a clue. They finally wanted me to do a Reset all Settings. I declined as I am not convinced that would solve the problem. Back to the drawing board.

    I did that and no change. I turned Imessage off, re-booted the Ipad. and no change. I tried the suggestions I found online and no luck. I may take it to the Apple Store to see if they can solve. It is frustrating as my IPhone works perfectly but the IPad still shows the 1.

    Red 1 in Messages

    This is weird! I tried what I knew and the suggestions offered here to no avail. This evening I took my wife's IPhone and sent myself an imessage thinking that might make a change. Nope! Then I sent a second message without having looked at the first on the IPad. Still said 1. I surrender. Both...

    Red 1 in Messages

    I did scroll the left column and verified all were read. I deleted a number of the most current msgs that I received before the problem showed up. I have booted, turned off notifications & back on, and anything else I thought might work. It is still there. I will try the last suggestion. Thanks...

    I did that and nothing changes. I have scrolled thru all msgs and nothing shows as new. I guess I can turn off Notifications for that app but then how would I know if I get a new msg?

    Red 1 in Messages

    My IPad shows a red 1 as if I had a new message. There are no new messages. I have rebooted and tried what I could to no avail. My IPhone shows no new messages. How do I clear that? Thanks, Russ

    App store?

    There is and maybe I have been misleading here as I have been looking for all this on my desktop as that is where I have always gone to sync and get apps. I apologize for the error. I think i get it now. Have a nice evening.

    App store?

    OK, I know I am challenged here but how do I get to that point. Is there a separate pgm to download for the App Store?

    App store?

    JA, sorry I am so late getting back to you. Thanks for the reply to my question. If the App Store is no longer part of ITunes that means that we can no longer sync apps between devices - true? That is a bummer. From now on if I use the App Store to get an app for my IPhone and also have it on my...

    App store?

    Updated IPad and ITunes recently. Where is the App store in ITunes? I know it os on the device but is it no longer available via ITunes? Thks Russ

    Image size

    On certain emails I get and open on the IPad mini I get a window that is only the size of an Iphone window. Is there something in settings I need to change? These emails open correctly on my PC. Strange.

    IPad Mini tripod mount

    I got one along with a Bluetooth shutter release from Amazon for the granddaughters for Christmas. Works well and I think the total for both was less than $40.

    "Ipad" data

    Tried your suggestion and that did the trick. Thanks for the help!

    "Ipad" data

    How could it be under the old ID if that id is not referenced anywhere in the phone? I will definitely check that but I assumed when it said it would save the data that it did so on the device itself. I will check and get back to you. Thanks

    "Ipad" data

    I changed the Appleid on my IPad mini recently and in the process of deleting the old id and setting up the new one it asks if you want to save contact & calendar info. All went well and I got it done. My question is can that data from the old id be deleted somehow? For example on Calendar I...

    Photo Sream help - sort of!

    Woo Hoo! Got it! On the mini that was not syncing I had set up the Appleid incorrectly. Hard to imagine! I apparently set it up an "Other" account. I went back in under Mail, Contacts, & Calendars and set it up as an ICloud account. I had assumed you could only use 1 Appleid there. When I did...

    Photo Sream help - sort of!

    Thanks for hanging in on this! Tried what you said with no change. I have 4 devices - 1 IP6's and 2 IPad mini 3's. Three of these are syncing great. One of the mini's is not syncing with Notes as I have said. The Appleid that I use to input all info shows 3 devices and does NOT show the mini...

    Photo Sream help - sort of!

    OK, may be on to something here. My IPad mini is NOT listed as a device on my AppleID in ICloud. How do I get that added? Thks Russ

    Photo Sream help - sort of!

    Thanks for the reply. I think I have bigger issues than this. I will have to see if I can sort them out. I cannot get Notes to sync. Bah Humbug!
