How do I stop things from downloading onto my iPhone and iPad?

I just got my iPad today and I don't want the same apps on my phone and iPad... Is there a way to stop them from downloading onto both? I noticed I can delete them off my phone and can stay on my iPad but it be easier if it just went to one.

Settings>iTunes and App Store>Automatic Downloads>Apps>Off

  • How do I stop IOS7 from downloading onto my ipad?

    I just found my Ipad that i lost many months ago. And when i turned it on, it decided to download IOS7 without me doing anything. I strongly dislike IOS7 and I don't want my Ipad to have it. The download is already 24% along and i paused it by turning off the Wi-fi. Is there a way that i can stop the download ?

    You can't stop it now.
    You have to restore the iPad to get rid of it. Immeditaley after restorng, make sure you turn off WiFi. When WiFi is off. Now you can restore your backup. Make sure you are fast enough to turn off WiFi. I once had the update download just seconds after restoring.
    Once the restore is complete, fill the iPad so that only 2.5GB or so is left of free space. That will prevent the update from downloading once again while you are on WiFi.

  • Help!!  How do I stop sharing my notes with my iphone and ipad?

    We have 2 IPhone 4s & 1 IPAD, they all see to share the notes that 1 person takes...how do we stop this process?  Do we have to create or use seperate Apple ID's?

    Settings.app -> iCloud -> toggle notes.
    It sounds like you want to share purchases but have different iCloud accounts, that is possible.

  • How do I stop icloud from downloading to my iphone?

    I have icloud, and am glad I can store photos from my iphone there. However, icloud is downloading all photos to my iphone, including those from my camera. I don't want these on my phone; they have filled up my phone's storage and it won't let me take pics.

    Settings>Photos.  Turn off Photo stream.  (I'm assuming icloud is downloading photo automatically, not when you sync to iTunes/computer - if this is the case, turn off photo syncing in iTunes, look under the photos tab.)

  • How can i stop icloud from downloading all my photos onto my iphone 4s each time I sync. Then, how do I delete them from my phone, there are no delete options. I'm slowly going crazy.

    Hi iprover,
      Let me first say that I am NO EXPERT with anything Apple and really have only started looking into this iCloud stuff a few hours ago because I'm trying to help my mom free up some space on her iCloud. But anyway, here's what I'm learning and what I THINK might be happening to you.
    Also, if any Apple support people (do they browse the forums to dish out helpful hints?) or people who probably know infinitely more than me about this stuff, please do chime in and confirm / correct my statements!
    This is what I gather.
    iCloud for Windows is set up with a local folder (let's call it "C:\Users\Administrator\Pictures\iCloud Photos\My Photo Stream") where iCloud will store photos uploaded to the Photo Stream. This will allow you to view your Photo Stream photos on your PC.
    This does not mean that this is a PC backup of your Photo Stream photos, but just a way to view your Photo Stream from your PC. That being said, the general Photo Stream rules apply: 1. No videos are on the photo-stream, and 2. Photos on the Photo Stream will be removed after ~30 days and/or after hitting the Photo Stream limit of 1000 photos.
    My guess is that the iCloud Windows App will delete photos from the local folder that are older than ~30 days and/or delete all but the most recent 1000 items if the 1000-item limit is reached.
    That is a scary thought! I really hope you did not lose all your pictures, but my guess is that the iCloud local folder is NOT meant for backup but instead is the iCloud Windows App's sandbox for updating and managing Photo Stream photos.
    All that being said, I'd say it's important to back up your photos in a separate folder not related to the iCloud local folder.

  • I downloaded the Keynote app to use on my iPad and because of iCloud, it is trying unsuccessfully to download onto my iPhone. How can I get it to stop attempting to download onto my iPhone? It says waiting and I can't delete it (no X to click). Thx!

    I downloaded the Keynote app to use on my iPad and because of iCloud, it is trying unsuccessfully to download onto my iPhone. How can I get it to stop attempting to download onto my iPhone? It says waiting and I can't delete it (no X to click). Thx!

    Did you try shutting down the device? Resetting? Disabling iCloud? Disabling auto-update?
    I'd find the problem that is keeping the download from proceeding and fix that so that the process can finish...sounds like it may be your connection or a server issue, in which case you may need to wait.

  • I preordered an album in error that is scheduled to download next week.  How do I stop it from downloading?  I no longer want to purchase it.

    I preordered an album in error that is scheduled to download next week.  How do I stop it from downloading?  I no longer want to purchase it.

    Downloading a pre-ordered item
    When a pre-order item becomes available, you will receive an email letting you know your pre-order is available for download.
    If you've enabled iTunes to automatically download prepurchased content, then your pre-order content may already be downloaded to your library. If not, simply click the download link provided within your email notification, and your pre-order content will begin to download. Alternatively you can use the "Check for Available Downloads" feature in iTunes on your computer by choosing Store > Check for Available Downloads to begin downloading your pre-order.
    I would contact iTunes if clicking on the link did not results in it downloading to your iPod.

  • How do I stop iTunes from backing up my iPhone photos to Dropbox?

    I have an iPhone and also have Dropbox. For some reason iTunes decided to back up the photos on my iPhone into a folder on my Dropbox without me telling it anything. How do I stop it from backing up my iPhone photos to Dropbox? The help files don't provide easy-to-find documentation and iTunes simply isn't intuitive.

    iTunes does no such thing.
    The dropbox app on the device has such a feature, turn it off.

  • TS3276 how do i get my mail box on my iPhone and iPad to STOP showing me ALL my emails and ONLY show me my NEW ones?

    how do i get my mail box on my iPhone and iPad to STOP showing me ALL my emails and ONLY show me my NEW ones?

    Who is email provider? What sort of email account is it - POP3, IMAP or Exchange? POP3 will work like this as with that whoever first downloads the latest mail from the server deletes it from there and so it's unavailable to other mail clients on other devices.
    Either switch your email account to  IMAP  or change your POP3 account's settings so the new mails are not deleted for some time (a week, a month or whatever) after first download and are thus available to other devices also (IMAP is best solution but if POP3 is all that's available from whoever your provider is then you'll have to live with POP's limitations).

  • HELP!!!! iMessages on iOS6 is sending messages from my iPhone to both my iPad, my other iPhone and other friends iPhones!  and receiving messages from friends on both iPhones and iPad.

    Why is the new iOS6 using iMessage and FaceTime and sharing messages across all iPad, both iPhones, and friends messages coming in are sent to all units?  SHARING???  How do you fix this?

    HI,
    On the iPhone and iPad you can "turn off" the Apple ID in Settings > Messages > Received At (and possibly) > Caller ID.
    iOS 6 will delete the email/Apple ID across all devices (you get a warning) but presumably Messages is either left alone on the Mac or you add the ID back in again.
    AS has been said you can then set up each device with it's own Apple ID

  • How do I stop iTunes from downloading multiple copies of a TV show?

    This is driving me nuts.  Using Doctor Who as the example, for each episode released, iTunes tries to download two HD copies and one SD copy.  I don't need the SD, nor do I need to duplicate HD.  Yet I can't stop it from trying to download them when I start iTunes, nor can I figure out how to permanently remove or cancel a pending download.
    Anyone have any idea how to stop this?
    -- edit ---
    Didn't have much luck matching search terms for this before posting, yet after posting links came up referencing other queries in which people asked how to stop iTunes from downloading the HD and SD versions of a TV show.  Consensus seems to be that iTunes will always download each version, which is just plain silly.  Haven't seen any explaination, however, on why it then tries to download a second HD copy.

    That is correct.  This is the way it is ALL HD purchases come with the SD version.

  • How do I stop duplicates from downloading?

    My iTunes library on my Mac is syncing transfers from my iPad and for some reason after the sync, my Mac started downloading some of those purchases from iTunes automatically. What gives? Do I have to download them in order to delete the duplicates or can I stop them from downloading? How can I prevent this from happening in the future?

    You can't stop the download, only pause it. Let it finish.

  • How do I stop Firefox from grabbing my saved images and coverting them to Firefox?

    I am working on images in Dreamweaver and Adobe Photoshop, and when I try to save them, Firefox coverts them into Firefox images with a Firefox icon and then I can't edit them properly in Photoshop or Dreamweaver. How do I stop Firefox from grabbing my saved images? in English

    I will try that, but it's pretty time consuming to have to check that for each of my images. I am a web designer and I work with a lot of images.
    Is there any way to set that globally for all of my saved images?
