There seems to be very little here to get excited about. But if you REALLY need a new phone, I’m sure you’ll be very happy. I have a 6s+ and there is absolutely no reason at ALL to upgrade from the 6s models. None. The 2017 models should be pretty impressive and catch up in all the areas Apple has allowed the iPhone to fall behind some of the Android models.

Comment on How to Fix ‘Requires a newer version of iTunes’ Error by Travis http://appletoolbox.com/2016/03/fix-requires-newer-version-itunes-error/#comment-1197479 Tue, 30 Aug 2016 05:21:29 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=30895#comment-1197479 This is a stupid problem to have in order to enforce a free upgrade. The only reason I actually upgraded my Mac is I’m getting rid of it within a few weeks and I generally use the Windows os I boot camped onto it except for iPhone related things. This os only exists in my life for one thing: iPhone backup and transfer, and it managed to screw that one job up by making me upgrade to a new os that I don’t want.

I can say that this is my last apple product purchase. I’m sick of the difficulty in using things I purchased for no reason other than Apple wants to “protect” their brand. When your brand needs protection by using tactics normally reserved for the shadiest of used car salespeople and realtors; maybe it’s time to change the brand into something that protects itself.

Comment on My iPad will not turn on: How to fix a dead device by Angela Norris http://appletoolbox.com/2014/12/ipad-will-not-turn-fix-dead-device/#comment-1197409 Mon, 29 Aug 2016 09:19:01 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=27226#comment-1197409 I have a regular problem with my iPad mini, if I fully charge it it won’t work, if I charge to 99% it’s fine, anyway I sometimes forget and fully charge it, all I get is the battery come up, have tried all of the things people have said on here but to no avail, happen to have a hot water bottle next to me and put my iPad down on it (by accident) while I made a cuppa, came back and realised what I had done, pushed on button and hey presto it worked, thought it was a fluke, but next time it happened I tried the water bottle trick and hey presto it worked again, probably not the best idea but it works for me, I’ve done it many times now, it’s only on it for a minimum time 1-2 minutes. Worth a try people

Comment on How to report a problem for an iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch App by Kevin Ritchey http://appletoolbox.com/2012/03/how-to-report-a-problem-for-an-iphoneipadipod-touch-app/#comment-1197406 Mon, 29 Aug 2016 06:54:43 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=3504#comment-1197406 I seem to be experiencing a buffering/lock problem with my iPhone 5s. Primarily while replying on Facebook, upon posting a comment or reply, my phone goes into buffer mode and is useless inside that app until it either times out or I reboot the phone. Any thoughts on why this has suddenly started. The phone is very sedentary as it barely gets moved from a padded mount and it not using battery power as it is plugged into power. Please advise… Thanks guys! Kevin Ritchey.

Comment on How to Fix FaceTime / iMessage Waiting for Activation by Mike Fillman http://appletoolbox.com/2012/02/facetime-imessage-waiting-for-activation-how-to-fix/#comment-1197395 Mon, 29 Aug 2016 05:41:42 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=3286#comment-1197395 I had the same problem activating iMessage on my iPad after I did a restore on my iPhone. I tried ALL the solutions outlined here and various other boards. What finally worked for me was making sure I was signed in using the SAME email address on all devices (iMac, iPhone and iPad). I have an @icloud.com, @mac.com and @me.com email address and thought these were all interchangeable, but they are not. Make sure that whatever of these is listed as your PRIMARY email address that you are signed in for iCloud is the one you use for iMessage.

Comment on How to Fix ‘Requires a newer version of iTunes’ Error by Kenneth Dinger http://appletoolbox.com/2016/03/fix-requires-newer-version-itunes-error/#comment-1197371 Sun, 28 Aug 2016 20:54:44 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=30895#comment-1197371 I saw this error trying to connect new 6s to my PC. I got frustrated trying to sync and changed my Apple ID password a few times, going between devices repeatedly. I also have a macpro and an ipad, so I powered off those devices to reduce possible interference, since they were logged in to iCloud. It’s confusing to figure out where things are ultimately stored — icloud, itunes, music, devices . . . . Anyway, I finally navigated to itunes.com in a browser. iTunes was telling me no update is needed, but in fact the website has a newer version to download, so I did that — voila, after wasted hours the iPhone device showed up in iTunes and synced. Thumbs down to Apple Help. I hope this helps!

Comment on Photoshop CS5 Preferences “Locked”; Fix by Riverrunner http://appletoolbox.com/2010/05/photoshop-cs5-preferences-locked-fix/#comment-1197359 Sun, 28 Aug 2016 15:43:13 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=313#comment-1197359 First thanks to Johannes for getting me to the correct folder, 2nd after 1/2 hour of trying to get it to work I just quit the program cs5 and then, re-opened it with different file, made a few changes – saved and quit – then reopened that file and it was fine ?????
Figured it out, I have a spare HD on my laptop and had 1 copy of the file on each, the one on the desktop opened/saved fine but, the one on my spare drive had the problem. So for me, i’ll just drag to my desktop and work from there. Hmmm really weird

Comment on How to Fix ‘Requires a newer version of iTunes’ Error by Kevin McNally http://appletoolbox.com/2016/03/fix-requires-newer-version-itunes-error/#comment-1197240 Fri, 26 Aug 2016 18:45:36 +0000 http://appletoolbox.com/?p=30895#comment-1197240 Just one final update: I was able to sync my Blackberry with Outlook 2007 using Blackberry Desktop (free download), Install iTunes, Connect my iPhone with iTunes and sync all the contacts in my Blackberry to the iPhone.

The computer I was successful on is a Dell Precision workstation laptop about 3 years old running Windows Professional 7. The only other step I took was to create a new user account in Windows 7 so I started with a clean slate in Outlook rather than an address book full of hundreds of contacts not needed on my phone.

The first computer I tried this on was a Dell D810 running Windows XP which is my prefered work operating system.
