Have just bought an ipad but have forgotten my gmail password.  I have used this gmail account for my apple id, if I set up a new email account on the ipad , do I have to change this apple id.  Am a very confused novice!!!

I have recently bought an Ipad but have forgotten my gmail password that I use on my Mac.  I have used this email as my apple ID.  If I now set up a new email account on my Ipad, do I have to change my apple ID as well as my apple password!  HELP A VERY CONFUSED NOVICE!!!

On your Mac, try to access your gmail account. There should be a link you click for "Forgot My Password". Click it and try to retrieve your password.

  • I have just bought snow leopard, but my computor tells me i am not a intel based mac  help

    I have just bought snow leopard . but my computer tells me it is no good as my computer is not a intel based mac

    I am sorry to hear about your unfortunate mistake Catri. It should not be too difficult to sell your DVD for slightly less than you paid for it. It is too late to help you now but the following may help others reading this post.
    Many people are happy with OS X 10.5.8 but if you want to update here is my general advice:
    To get information about your Mac click the apple (screen top left) and select About this Mac. This will give you your OS number. Then click More Info to see which Processor you have. If it says PowerPC you cannot upgrade to Snow Leopard and above as these OSs are for Intel only. You can discover more about various Macs at: http://www.apple-history.com/
    The OS numbers and names are:
    OS X 10.4.x - Tiger
    OS X 10.5.x - Leopard
    OS X 10.6.x - Snow Leopard
    OS X 10.7.x - Lion
    OS X 10.8.x - Mountain Lion
    If you have an Intel Mac it is well worth upgrading to Snow Leopard now and then considering other options after that.
    You can buy Snow Leopard here:
    http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573Z/A
    For details about upgrading this to Lion or Mountain Lion see:
    http://store.apple.com/us/product/MD256Z/A
    In each case check that your Mac complies with the requirements.
    If you are not in the US you should use the Change Country link at the bottom of the page.

  • I have just bought a MacBook but can't seem to sync my Contacts or Calendar from my iPhone 3GS to my iTunes, I have tried everything, even the icloud doesn't seem to do it.

    I have just bought a MacBook but can't seem to sync my Contacts or Calendar to the Address Book or iCal via iTunes, I have tried everything including watching support videos and putting this into a search engine. Even icloud doesn't seem to be doing it.

    If you are trying to sync via iCloud, make sure your MacBook is running OSX Lion 10.7.7, and that you have set up your iPhone as described here: http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/ and you MacBook as described here: http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/mac.htm (including turning On Contacts and Calendars as shown in step 3).  If you're syncing via iCloud don't check to sync in iTunes too (on the Info tab in iTunes) or you may end up with duplicate data.

  • I am having serious issues trying to alter my old iCloud account with an old non-functioning email to my new apple id with a new email address. The message keeps coming up on all my apple products with my old email (which is not available anymore).

    I am having serious issues trying to alter my old iCloud account with an old non-functioning email to my new apple id with a new email address. The message keeps coming up on all my apple products with my old email (which is not available anymore).

    I have the same problem - it is maddening. I rely on this iPad for work so this is not just an annoyance! The above solutions of changing the appleid on the device or on the website do not work.
    The old email address no longer exists - I haven't used it in a year probably and I no longer have the account.  I logged into the appleid website and there is no trace of the old email address so there is nothing that can be deleted or changed there.  On the iPad there is no trace of the old email address so nothing can be deleted there either. I have updated the iPad software and the same problem comes right back.  Every 2 seconds I am asked to log in using the old non-existent email.  The device is currently useless.
    The only recent change to anything was the addition of an Apple TV device, which was set up using the correct login and password.
    Does anyone have any ideas? The iPad has been backed up to the iCloud so presumably it now won't recognize the current iCloud account? So restoring may notbe an option?

  • Hi there, I have just bought an ipad4 but it will not connect to my internet. I have tried every suggestion going to no avail. My netgear DG834g router is fairly old , do you think this is the problem? I am at a loss now and very frustrated!

    Hi there, I have just bought my first ipad4 and have spent all weekend trying to connect to the internet. I have tried all Apple suggestions to no avail
    . My Netgear DG834g router is a few years old now. Do you think this may be the problem? Do they have compatibility issues after a while? My ipad upgrade is IOs 6. I am at a loss what else to do and needless to say extremely frustrated!
    Thanks.

    First check that your router has its latest firmware.
    Some things to try first:
    1. Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord for 30 seconds or longer) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.
    2. Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.
    3. Change the channel on your wireless router (Auto or Channel 6 is best). Instructions at http://macintoshhowto.com/advanced/how-to-get-a-good-range-on-your-wireless-netw ork.html
    4. Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.
    5.  Renew IP Address: (especially if you are droping internet connection)
        •    Launch Settings app
        •    Tap on Wi-Fi
        •    Tap on the blue arrow of the Wi-Fi network that you connect to from the list
        •    In the window that opens, tap on the Renew Lease button

  • Has mail changed so that Apple Mail is deciding to make all new email accounts IMAP?

    I am unable to create a POP mail account on my computer or my iPhone today. I have 8 other email pop accounts with the same server. Trying today to replicate the same steps with a ninth email account, APPLE Mail is deciding that it is IMAP, and will NOT let me revise the "account type".
    Does anyone know if this is a system-wide change effecting new email accounts within the past few days?

    You should be adding the Mail accounts by using System Preferences', Internet Accounts.
    Correction, that should be: You should be adding the Mail accounts by using System Preferences', "Mail, Contacts & Calendars."

  • I have just bought Element 11 but cannot get it to recognize Windows Mail as my Carrier

    Previously I used Elements 7 to send photos to friends, but I bought a Nikon D800 Camera, and elements 7 does not support files from that camera, so I bought Elements 11, but cannot get it to access Windows Mail as my carrier. When I try to e-mail photos it only shows Microsoft Outlook or Adobe Mail to choose from. How do I get the program to understand that I use Windows Mail as my carrier.
    Renzo Valle

    Dear Jeff,
    I use Windows Mail all the time and it is the Default e-mail carrier for all my other programs and is the only carrier that I use in my computer. I use Windows Mail with Elements 7, Wordperfect and Word. The only reason I bought Elements 11 was because I had bought this new camera with 36.3 mega pixels, Elements 7 could not handle these files, and I was advised to buy Elements 11, which works fine with these files. I do not understand why Elements 11 did not recognize Windows Mail as my default, and does not give me any options other that Windows Outlook or Adobe Mail. There must be a way to get into this programs setup to alter this, but I cannot find any way which would allow me to do that. Can You help me.

  • Have iTunes version 10 .3 but do not understand cloud in iTunes 11.03 can someone explain it and also how do you find duplicates in new version and will the new version sync with my iPod Classic which I have had for 4 years

    I have iTunes version 10.03 which I love but my iPad Apple mini has iOS 7 but I don't understand the new iTunes what is the cloud shown next to the music and how can I find duplicates can anyone help me navigate the new iTunes and will the new version sync with my iPod Classic which is 4 years old

    The main differences between iTunes 11 and earlier versions are the loss of coverflow and ability to have multiple windows open.
    In Windows, you can restore much of the look & feel of iTunes 10.7 with these shortcuts:
    ALT to temporarily display the menu bar
    CTRL+B to show or hide the menu bar
    CTRL+S to show or hide the sidebar
    CTRL+/ to show or hide the status bar (won't hide for me on Win XP)
    Click the magnifying glass top right and untick Search Entire Library to restore the old search behaviour
    Use View > Hide <Media Kind> in the cloud or Edit > Preferences > Store and untick Show iTunes in the cloud purchases to hide the cloud items. The second method eliminates the cloud status column (and may let iTunes start up more quickly)
    If you don't like having different coloured background & text in the Album (Grid) view use Edit > Preferences > General and untick Use custom colours for open albums, movies, etc.
    With iTunes 11.0.3 and later you can enable artwork in the Songs view from View > Show View Options (CTRL+J) making it more like the old Album List view
    View > Show View Options (CTRL+J) also contains options to change the sorting of grid based views
    The cloud icons give you access to stream or download any qualifying past purchases that you don't currently have downloaded to the library.
    Regarding duplicates, things haven't really changed. Apple's official advice is here... HT2905 - How to find and remove duplicate items in your iTunes library. It is a manual process and the article fails to explain some of the potential pitfalls.
    Use Shift > View > Show Exact Duplicate Items to display duplicates as this is normally a more useful selection. You need to manually select all but one of each group to remove. Sorting the list by Date Added may make it easier to select the appropriate tracks, however this works best when performed immediately after the dupes have been created.  If you have multiple entries in iTunes connected to the same file on the hard drive then don't send to the recycle bin. Use my DeDuper script if you're not sure, don't want to do it by hand, or want to preserve ratings, play counts and playlist membership. See this thread for background and please take note of the warning to backup your library before deduping.
    (If you don't see the menu bar press ALT to show it temporarily or CTRL+B to keep it displayed)
    Yes, iTunes 11 will support your iPod classic.
