Need to delete music from my iPhone to make space for iOS upgrade. Should I get rid of all (and how would I do this?) and use the cloud as playback source?

My phone wants to upgrade to 7.0.2, but there's not enough room. I (stupidly) upgraded my iCloud capacity thinking that that would help, but it doesn't.  Now I'm considering deleting my music off my phone altogether, but I need some of it there for a variety uses at the school where I teach.  Does the cloud preserve my playlists?  Can I selectively delete music from my iPhone?

Hi - you can do what you want to do with AirPlay from your iPhone - but unfortunately it is not as easy as the people in the Apple store told you - your first problem is that you have a non Apple router - you cannot extend a non Apple router wirelessly with the Express - you can only join the network and connect an ethernet device to it - you can however connect via ethernet and have it create a wireless network of its' own - you can set this up from your iPhone or the XP - but this is a complicated setup and would involve many different discussion areas of this forum - therefore I would suggest that you use your 90 days of support and consult directly with Apple to do this - go to this link - http://www.apple.com/support/contact/

  • HT201272 Can you access paid for apps/movies from iTunes on another device if you have not synced? I need to delete movies from my iPad to make space but don't want to forfeit the purchase as have not synced movies to another device yet.

    Can you access paid for apps/movies from iTunes on another device if you have not synced? I purchased movies on my new iPad, but need to delete some off as have no space left. I have not synced the movies I have purchased on my iPad to any other devices as yet and want to know if I can retrieve the movies from iTunes later if I removed them now without syncing first? I do not want to forfeit my purchases.. Please help!

  • I need to recover deleted data from my iPhone 4S but don't have a recent backup. I thought by pressing sync on my macbook this would back up-but I was wrong. There are no backups on my macbook and the latest backup on iCloud was Jan 2012. Please help

    I need to recover deleted data from my iPhone 4S but don't have a recent backup. I thought by pressing sync on my macbook this would back up…but I was wrong. There are no backups on my macbook and the latest backup on iCloud was Jan 2012. My mum died in May and I had lots of text messages that I wanted to keep. I really want to get them back. Is there any way at all I can get that deleted data from the phone?

    Since it has always been very basic to backup your computer and all it's data, Apple provides no way for you to transfer music from your iPhone back to your computer.  As you know, you can re-download all iTunes purchases, but music that you ripped yourself you'll have to just re-rip again.
    You can try and find 3rd party applications that might help you.  I'm sure you'll pay, however.
    Let this be a very important lesson learned.
    Best.

  • How can I delete music from my iPhone 4 (iOS7) when I manually manage the music in iTunes, but it has no affect on my phone's music library?

         I'm attempting to delete music from my iPhone 4 (iOS7). When I connect it to iTunes, and the music shows up, I delete the music from the phone. When I disconnect the phone, the music is still there. The same thing happens if I try to sync the phone before disconnecting. I have "manually manage music" checked. Additionally, when I reconnect my iPhone, the music I "deleted" from it when it was previously connected to iTunes no longer appears, preventing me from trying to delete it again.
    I know I can swipe left on each song to delete it on my phone, and I have been, but that takes a long time when you're trying to delete everything on your iPhone.
    Suggestions?

    Yes. You can re-download purchased iTunes content for free, except for purchased ringtones, which are a one time download.

  • I need to put music from my iPhone to my mac

    A while ago I forgot the password to my apple id, and when i tried to reset it it wouldn't accept my birthday for the security questions and when I tried to reset it by email, I never got an email (I checked my spam and junk folders too). So I made a new Apple ID. I recently got a new Macbook Pro and I need to transfer music from my iPhone 5 to my mac, but it will only let me transfer the purchases i made with my new Apple ID. is there any way i can transfer the music that I bought with my previous apple id?

    You need to ask Apple to reset your security questions; this can be done by clicking here and picking a method, or if your country isn't listed, filling out and submitting this form.
    They wouldn't be security questions if they could be bypassed without Apple verifying your identity.
    Creating a new Apple ID to address this issue should only be done when desperate to make a purchase.
