Sorry about your troubles with Safari Bookmarks and Reading Lists. To access a bookmark that you can’t find or deleted within the last 30 days, log into iCloud.com on a computer or using Desktop Mode to try and recover them. Click Settings, and under Advanced, click Restore Bookmarks.

Hope that helps,

Liz

I refused to pay for the service on my 6 weeks old phone. but still: not on my 4S, not on the 6. tried 3 different podcasts, still not. installed overcast and the podcast app. still no way. downloaded latest today update. retarted, reset network settings. did each of above recommedations. nothing. wasted 3 hours. this company is not liable for product failures. that is how they get rich. expensive product, no customer service.

Comment on iPad Sound Not Working? How to Fix It by Elizabeth https://appletoolbox.com/2016/03/ipad-sound-not-working-fix/#comment-1250898 Wed, 17 Jan 2018 12:30:30 +0000 https://appletoolbox.com/?p=30905#comment-1250898 Hi Braden,

Sorry to hear about all your troubles with your iPad. Do you hear sound on anything? I’m sure you already checked, but make sure your iPad is not on mute. And check and see if you hear sound when changing tones in your Settings > Sounds.

If you don’t hear any sound whatsoever and mute is not enabled, it’s possible that the recent repair may have inadvertently impacted your speakers. In that case, contact the place that repaired your iPad’s screen and let them know that following this repair, you are no longer able to play any sound from your iPad.

Comment on Mouse cursor (pointer) disappears; invisible / missing; fix by DAN LOVE https://appletoolbox.com/2015/10/mouse-cursor-pointer-disappears-invisible-missing-fix/#comment-1250803 Tue, 16 Jan 2018 22:53:31 +0000 https://appletoolbox.com/?p=28618#comment-1250803 I have a “Temporary Fix” that is easy to and quicker to use than any of your suggestions.
Go to “Mission Control” in the System preferences, and while you’re there assign a “HOTKEY” to bring up “Dashboard” as an OVERLAY (I use F19); then just tap it twice and ,voila, the cursor is back. Of course APPLE should eliminate this problem, because work-a-rounds are not kosher for Operating Systems.
