Go to http://www.itunes.com to download the latest version of iTunes.”

Both phones have the same operating system (9.3.2). What is happening here?! Not impressed one iota!!

If this was a fix, you would be able to keep your notifications on and the problem would simply go away.

Comment on iPhone 4 Troubleshooting Guide by K O Philipose http://appletoolbox.com/2010/07/iphone-4-troubleshooting-guide/#comment-1191827 Fri, 24 Jun 2016 03:27:15 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=556#comment-1191827 I am at present living in Trivandrum ,Kerala,India and I have an I phone 4S bought from Kuwait( Alghanim Electronics)about 3 years back
A week back I have experienced a greyed out WiFi button problem when I tried this button in settings while changing from 3G facility in the SIM card of the service provider to the Wifi installed at my home.Then I tried the ” Restore” option following the steps suggested in the Apple trouble shooting guide and found that the problem still could not be addressed suggesting a hardware problem like defective antena problem or such like requiring a replacement
Although I was not aware of the existence of an apple approved service centre in my city Trivandrum I found out from Internet such facility is being undertaken by a firm called F1 Info Solutions and Services Pvt Ltd Trivandrum ,Kerala ,India and I had taken my phone there and after checking I was informed that this is a hardware problem and replacement is the only solution
I would appreciate receiving your valuable advice at this point as to why such a problem all on a sudden,or is it something normal ( which I do not expect from an esteemed manufacturer like Apple )or such issues are for a certain series and such like noting that my usage of the phone was only for personal purpose like emails messages exchanges in social media sites,telephone calls etc and that too not excessive as I am a retired engineer of 75 years old
Is it too much me expecting a free replacement ,if you think so suggest me a suitable alternative
An early response would be highly appreciated noting that I must have a phone for carrying out my routine business,although retired

Comment on AirPlay not working, how to fix AirPlay and AirPlay Mirroring problems by Oscar Canino http://appletoolbox.com/2013/05/airplay-not-working-how-to-fix-airplay-and-airplay-mirroring-problems/#comment-1191823 Fri, 24 Jun 2016 02:55:26 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=13319#comment-1191823 Finally got mirroring to work and proper icon to show. Two problems needed fixing: a software update to the Apple TV device–this took about 15 minutes to download and update. After this was finished, I didn’t even see the TV as an airplay choice. Then I disconnected Apple TV for about one minute, plugged it back in. It came back onto the network, then it correctly configured into my iPhone 6 airplay app. Now works flawlessly. Hope this is good for you too! Best of luck…

It’s a sad day when a formerly reputable company issues hardware that has so many software problems. Time to look elsewhere…

Comment on Top Three iOS 9.3 Problems, How to Fix by Terry http://appletoolbox.com/2016/03/top-three-ios-9-3-problems-how-to-fix/#comment-1191806 Thu, 23 Jun 2016 19:31:19 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=31032#comment-1191806 Since upgrading to 9.3.1 and then 9.3.2, I can no longer use Wifi at my company on my i5S. Wifi on the phone works elsewhere with no known issues. Another employee of the company has the same issue with his iphone post-upgrade to 9.3. Others in the company on Androids have no issues using the company wifi, and I had no issues before the IOS upgrade. I have manually “forgotten” the Network and re-added it back multiple times to no avail. I can’t reset the company wifi router, nor should we have to since it works with non-IOS devices. This upgrade from Apple is most disappointing and limits the functionality of the phone. About ready to cash-in the iphone and just concede that Apple phones, software and software testing are on the slippery slope. What a travesty for a company that was setting the trends before.

Comment on The Good and The Bad of iOS 10 by Binyamin Goldman http://appletoolbox.com/2016/06/good-bad-ios-10/#comment-1191799 Thu, 23 Jun 2016 15:48:46 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=32906#comment-1191799 Hey Spark,

The point I was trying to get across was not that it is impossible to secure widgets, but that it was impossible to secure widgets one by one. It’s possible I always want access to my weather widget without always having unrestricted access to my Messages.

On Control Center, I’d almost bet money that they won’t be adjustable, especially considering there are other Apple devices with control center that need to be in line, and even if they were it wouldn’t solve the problem of having access to everything with one swipe.

Thanks for the comment and for reading!

Comment on How to Fix ‘Requires a newer version of iTunes’ Error by Deano http://appletoolbox.com/2016/03/fix-requires-newer-version-itunes-error/#comment-1191775 Thu, 23 Jun 2016 09:47:35 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=30895#comment-1191775 Mac users:

Upgrading to El Capitan worked for me on this one folks. iTunes now recognises my new iPhone 6s and I’m now able to restore my phone with my old backup (though it is now stuck on 20 mins remaining, more fun and games!).

Good luck!

Comment on The Good and The Bad of iOS 10 by Spark! http://appletoolbox.com/2016/06/good-bad-ios-10/#comment-1191770 Thu, 23 Jun 2016 08:40:13 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=32906#comment-1191770 Binyamin, glad you highlight yourself that it is a beta version you talk about…
– It is up to you (and everyone else) to secure the widgets and their accessibility (settings > touch id & passcode) – yet obviously not everyone knows it…
– As for the control center… have you thought about that these tabs may… may… may be adjustable once iOS 10 alpha is out?
