I recently changed my Apple ID.   When I try to make changes to my iCloud account on my Mac., I cannot access the account via System Preferences. I've changed the password once already.   My iPhone's iCloud account is fine. At this point my iCloud account no longer is working with my Mac. Does anybody have any suggestions?

I finally figured out the answer to my own question. I created a new iCloud account on my Mac. Problem solved!

  • When I try to open iTunes, I get this error message: Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. I get a different error message if I try to uninstall it.

    When I try to open iTunes, I get this error message: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." I've been able to uninstall all Apple products except iTunes as I get this error message: "The Installer has insufficent privileges to modify this file: C:\Program Files\i Tunes\Acknowledgments.rtf." I've had the iTunes on my laptop for a year and a half with no problems until now.

    Any suggestions please?

  • Can't change the Apple ID when I try to make an iCloud account

    When I'm in settings on the iCloud account information page, it shows an Apple ID that I used to share with my family but don't use anymore and I can't change it. I'm trying to back up my phone so that when I get a new one in a few days I can keep all of my photos and contacts, without syncing all of that with my familys phones.

    Of course your password shouldn't work on a different Apple ID. This can happen for many reasons, no worries, just sign out back back in using your own ID.

  • HT204053 I have an iPhone 4S and when I try to add an iCloud account is gives me an error "Cannot Sign In, The maximum number of free accounts have been activated on this iPhone." Is there any way to deactivate an account?

    I have an iPhone 4S and when I try to add an iCloud account is gives me an error "Cannot Sign In, The maximum number of free accounts have been activated on this iPhone." Is there any way to deactivate an account? I have one for myself, one for my family and one for my work. I had all three on my iphone and then I deleted my work. I wanted to get my own person @me.com account. It wouldn't let me create it from my iphone, so I created it from my Macbook Pro. I am trying to add it to my iphone, but it keeps giving me that error. If there is a way I can deactivate my work one so I can use my @me.com personal account?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Unfortunately once all the 3 iCloud accounts have been created on your mobile device, you cannot create any more regardless of what you do. You will need to re-use one of the accounts that you have already created or create your new account on another device or computer.
    You should however be able to add existing accounts to your device, are you sure you aren't trying to create on rather than simply use an existing one.

  • I changed by apple id and password on apple web site but when I try to sign in on my touch it asks me to enter the password for my old apple id, how do i get icloud to recongnize my new id?

    I changed my AppleID and password on the Apple web site but when I try to sign in on my touch it asks me to enter the password for my old Apple ID, how do i get ICloud to recognize my new ID?

    Hi appledapple1964,
    After changing your Apple ID information, you may need to manually sign out and sign back in on your devices so that they may recognize the update. You may find the following article helpful:

    Try the following steps, check whether things are working after each step where appropriate, before trying the next.
    Restart the Apple TV (Settings > General > Restart).
    Restart the Apple TV by removing ALL the cables for 30 seconds.
    Restart your router.

  • Ok I just bought this phone off a friend and when I try to make a iCloud account it says the number of free iCloud account have been takin what can I do

    Ok i just bought a iPhone 4 off a friend and when I try to make a iCloud account it says the number of iCloud account have been takin and want let me make one what should I do

    You can't do anything, except use a different device (or a Mac) to setup iCloud and then transfer the details to the phone you bought.
    Clearly your friend setup multiple iCloud accounts for some reason (you only need one) using up all the allocation for that device, and didn't tell you before selling you the phone.

  • TS1741 I have lost the original remote for my Apple TV. I went to install it at my fiancés house, and cannot use the remote app on my ipad or iPhone. Can I still control the Apple TV with the apps?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Your Apple TV may have become paired with another remote. Hold the remote close to and pointed at the Apple TV, hold down the menu and Rewind buttons together for 6 seconds or until you see a broken chain icon on screen.

    I cannot access the iTunes store from any of my computers.  When I updated to v. 10.7 it made my laptop unable to access just like with my two desktops. I have installed and uninstalled numerous times.

    Nothing happens.  iTunes just hangs up every time, saying "Accessing iTunes Store."  It does that for a very, very long time, then nothing.  Here is what happens when I run diagnostics.

  • I just downloaded Maverick last week, and ALL of my contact groups have duplicated.  When I use one to send a group e-mail, everything is doubled in the address bar.  Any suggestions?  Very frustrating.

    Hello Joannah,
    Thank you for details of the issue you are experiencing with duplicates in Contacts after upgrading to OS X Mavericks.  I would be frustrated by this too.
    If you have enabled iCloud Contacts, I recommend following the steps in the article below:
    iCloud: Resolving duplicate Contacts after setting up iCloud Contacts
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4147
    If you’re not using iCloud, I recommend this article instead:

    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    Best,
    Sheila M.

  • I lost my handset and now have a replacement but when I try to backup from icloud I get a message saying 'cannot Load Backups' Can anyone help?

    I lost my handset (iphone 4s) and now have a replacement but when I try to restore from icloud I get a message saying 'cannot load backups'. Can anyone help?

    Unless you've tried to install an older version of iTunes that message likely indicates a corrupt library file. See Empty/corrupt library after upgrade/crash...

  • When I try backing up to icloud it says that I have gone over the free 5gb. It shows that I have 4.6 gb of pictures in my camera roll when I barely have over 200 pictures! Any similiar problems or possible solutions?

    You're welcome.  Given the number of people who seem to have problems restoring photos from their backup I wouldn't trust the iCloud backup for my photos anyway.  I always import them to my computer at least weekly.  That way I know I have them.
    You might want to check out the app PhotoSync.  It makes this pretty easy as it transfers them to your computer wirelessly and keeps track of which ones have already been transferred.
