HT1766 I started a iCloud backup of my iPhone last night before I went to bed and when I woke up it said 15 hours remaining and stayed that way for over an hour and has not changed

I started a icloud backup of my iphone last night before I went to bed as I was told at the apple store yesterday that it could take up to 3 hours to backup.  When I woke up this morning it was still going and said 15 hours remaining.  After an additional hour or so the screen still read 15 hours remaining.  I need to understand how I am suppose to backup the device to icloud without having to take this long as I cannot be without my phone for an entire day or longer due to work requirements.

If you're in recovery mode, all data is ALREADY lost.  You've no choice but to restore.

    sounds like a hardware issue with the battery
    1. you can try different chargers if you have any
    2. while plugged in, Hold the Home+Power at the same time for about 20 secs, if the apple comes up then release both buttons
    3.if that doesn't work you may have to go into Apple store

  • HT4759 I just got a new IPAD and transferred everything through the cloud from my old IPAD2. The new one says "this IPAD is currently being restored. It has been that way for about 2 hours. Also, I books will open and then close right away with no content

    I just got a new IPAD and transferred everything through the cloud from my old IPAD 2. The new one says "this IPAD is currently being restored. It has been that way for over two hours. Also, I Books opens and then closes right away with no content. Does it take this long, or is there an issue?

    I also tried manually underlining a few things on the new iPad and when highlighting a paragraph, it would skip a few lines and the line would go through a few as well. Looks like a major iBooks glitch needs to be addressed here.

    I believe that system has a hall sensor on it to detect when the lid is closed so it can put the system to sleep and/or disable the monitor so it can be used with an external monitor only. If the sensor is marginal or has a bad cable, it may intermittently cut the monitor on and off, and may likewise put the system to sleep. One way to check would be to plug in an external monitor and if the laptop's screen cuts off or doesn't show up, start using the trackpad and press on a non-typing key like the shift key. If the external display suddenly pops and becomes active while the laptop display remains black, it's probably a problem with the sensor or the cable/connection. You might be able to fool the sensor into kicking on and off by moving a magnet over it. It's located on the left had side of the base with the unit opened up, and right over the audio output plug.
    I know of some people that put a small magnet right over the hall sensor's location so the laptop display turns off and they use the system with an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse. If fooling with magnets, make sure they're small and don't get them close to the hard drive because a strong magnet can wipe them out.
    I don't know if this will help you much, but it might.

    I followed the instructions on the Web site to uninstall Photo shop elements 12 in windows 8.1 and when I did as it said there was no box to tick for deactivation so I carried on..  Can I just go ahead and install on another computer ?

    I don't know what instructions you may have followed, but as long as you "signed out" , then you will be fine.

  • I pulled down the notification center, tapped the "tap to tweet" and my phone was jammed. It stayed that way for a minute then restart itself. Is there any way to fix it or at least give me an explanation

    Hi Abbie. You have every reason to be upset. These issues normally happen in our country. You can send them an email regarding your concern here:
    http://www.apple.com/feedback/macbook.html
    Regarding your battery, you can probably reset the SMC and see if that improves your battery life. Here are the steps.

    I upgraded my account yesterday. They charged my card and nothing works,  I was on with online chat support for a hour last night. I was told they were levating my support to the next level.  Never heard back from anyone  I have been on hold for over an hour on phone support.

  • My time capsule has stopped working since installing Yosemite. It says to wait to tell me how much longer but it stays that way for hours.

    My time machine has stopped working since I upgraded to Yosemite. It gets to the point that says it will estimate the time remaining, but it never gives me that answer and it just stays on that page and never completes it's backup. This is a brand new macpro, so I wanted to capture the previous info on my computer I was able to put my external hard drive on new computer and it did the migration and all my old info returned. However, two days later I wanted to do a backup using Time Machine with my Western Digital Mac external hard drive but it won't progress past saying how much time remaining, even after several hours of sitting there.

    You do need to wait a long time.. as it takes a long while for Yosemite to index the existing backup if it is large.
    Here is Apple's List of bad things that happen to TM in Yosemite.
    OS X Yosemite: Time Machine problems
    It is clearly no where near as comprehensive as it needs to be.
    I presume your disk has your old backup.. it may be better to keep the old backup.. save that for the future.. and get a new disk and start a fresh clean backup.
    I would also recommend using Carbon Copy Cloner or similar for the time being. Make a bootable clone backup of your drive to a new external drive.. it is really superior in lots of ways to Time Machine. And does show you what it is doing.
    For TM at least you can still use the widget so you have some log access to that TM does.

  • I started off not being able to highlight or tap on a number and call it. Then all my apps became unresponsive after I opened them. I could close them and I tried turning off my phone but it's been "turning off" for over an hour and a half. What do I do?

    I tried to take a number and make it into a contact from a text message and it wouldn't open. So I tried to open facebook later, and I found that all my apps were unresponsive once they opend. So I turned it off but the circle thing has been going for an hour and a half now and won't completely turn off. I plugged it into the computer and I get a pop up message that Itunes can't recognize my phone or something similar. Don't know what to do, I was going to reset everything but how can I if it won't recognized when plugged into my computer?

    Hi.  I checked on the order and it says the order is currently being processed and I should check back tomorrow. I'm mostly just concerned because I got an email saying the order was on hold, and I want to make sure it actually does go through and I'm not just waiting for a delivery that's not going to come. I'm still confused as to why I'd get an email saying I had to call the fraud department only to be told I shouldn't have called the fraud department.

  • HT4060 My ipad mini wont charge I bought a new charger since the old one didn't charge my ipad and the same problem is happening i charged it over night and when I woke up it said 50% soo can someone help me this is my first apple product a

    Well my ipad mini isn't charging.. I with the original charger it didn't show the charging sign when plugged in.. And I bought a new one a 12:00 one from bath bed and beyond. Now it ain't charging again even thought it did a few days ago.. Now I don't know what to do.. I don't wanna keep buying chargers..

    Could be the charger, cable or iPad. Plug the USB cable into your computer. It may say "Not Charging", however, it is charging slowly and will verify that the cable is good.
    Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons. (This is equivalent to rebooting your computer.)
    The quickest way (and really the only way) to charge your iPad is with the included 10W or 12W (5W on Mini) USB Power Adapter. iPad will also charge, although more slowly, when attached to a computer with a high-power USB port (many recent Mac computers) or with an iPhone Power Adapter (5W). When attached to a computer via a standard USB port (2.5W, most PCs or older Mac computers) iPad will charge very slowly (but iPad indicates not charging). Make sure your computer is on while charging iPad via USB. If iPad is connected to a computer that’s turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, the iPad battery will continue to drain.
    Apple recommends that once a month you let the iPad fully discharge & then recharge to 100%.

    At this link http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/galaxy-tab-android-tablet,3014-11.htmlhttp://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/galaxy-tab-android-tablet,3014-11.html , tests show that the iPad 2 battery (25 watt-hours) will charge to 90% in 3 hours 1 minute. It will charge to 100% in 4 hours 2 minutes. The new iPad has a larger capacity battery (42 watt-hours), so using the 10W charger will obviously take longer. If you are using your iPad while charging, it will take even longer. It's best to turn your new iPad OFF and charge over night.

  • My screen dims and shrinks with a blue outline around the window.  It won't let me do anything unless it goes back to normal, but it won't stay that way for long.  What is wrong and how do I fix it?

    When I start up my screen will rapidly shrink to a smaller size with a blue border around the window.  It rapidly goes from full screen to this smaller screen with the blue border and back again.  It seems to be affected by the use of the mouse.  My mouse was old so I bought a new one....didn't help.  When I have to tabs or two applications open they seperate, shrink, and appear simultaniously on the screen.  This just started happening.

    Put in the correct password.

  • My iphone 4S wont allow me to restore a bckup of icloud it has just rebooted the os and for over 24 hours i have been trying to fix it i use this phone for my job so i need help

    My iphone 4S wont allow me to restore a bckup of icloud it has just rebooted the os and for over 24 hours i have been trying to fix it i use this phone for my job so i need help. when i try to restore it says "Your iphone could not be activated becuase the activation server is unavailable, If the problom presests goto apple.com/support"   It has done this for 27 hours now PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!

    - Connect the iPod to the computer and see if iTunes sees it. If it sees it try to get the photos off the iPod.
    - Next let the battery fully drain. It will likely take days. After charging for at least an hour try again
    - Last, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.
