my wife and I share an iCloud account for photo library and iCloud drive mainly for our family photo management, but we use different accounts for iMessage/facetime/calendar/etc. With Yosemite, I can't use continuity/handoff without dumping the primary photo iCloud account and thus our shared photo system. We are running yosemite OS X 10.10 and iOS 8.0.2... Is there any way to do this?

  • I pre ordered an album. One of the songs was released early but it won't download. It says purchased by it. How can I make it download without buying the song or the album again?

    I pre ordered midnight memories (a one direction album) a couple months ago. One of the songs was released early and was available to be downloaded. Because I had already purchased the album I figured that the song would automatically download but it isn't downloading. It says that it is purchased. Please explain how I can get the song to download without having to purchase the song or the album again.

  • HT204053 My wife and I share one Apple ID.  I am on iCloud and she is not (yet).  If she turns on here iCloud capability does that mean our device content will be merged?

    My wife and I share one Apple ID.  I am on iCloud and she is not (yet).  If she turns on here iCloud capability does that mean our device content will be merged?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    To begin with, I would like to try to explain Apple's confusing nomenclature in regard to iCloud.
    Apple have called the whole cloud thing iCloud, there are a number of features under the iCloud umbrella, some of which require their own login. iTunes is one of these, another is what Apple have unfortunately also called iCloud too.
    You can use the same Apple ID (account) to login to both iCloud and iTunes, but you don't need to and often users will login to each service using a different ID.
    The part that you need to remember is that the services available when you log into iCloud are completely different and unrelated to those when you log in to iTunes. Your iCloud login enables mail, contacts, calendars, find my phone, Back to My Mac, Documents & Data sharing and photostream, it does not affect any of your iTunes services.
    To avoid confusion when discussing your problem, when I mention iCloud, I am referring to the services under the iCloud login, Whereas I will refer to the whole cloud thing as The Cloud.
    To avoid your data being merged, your wife should open a new account and use it just for iCloud, she can continue to use the existing account for iTunes, so that you can continue to share your iTunes content.

  • I have three iPads and one iPod and one iPhone.  How can I message between them without sending the message to all of them.  You send the message to your email address but all of them are set up und one account.

    I have three iPads and one iPod and one iPhone.  How can I message between them without sending the message to all of them.  You send the message to your email address but all of them are set up under one account.

    You can have a different receiving email in the Messages app on each device : Settings > Messages > Receive At . I'm not sure that there is a different way to have the message only go to one device.

  • I have changed my account to SIM only and when I put my new SIM Card into my iPhone 4 it just says 'no service' in the top left corner, also iMessage has stopped working too. I can only use my phone on my WiFi at the moment, does anyone have any idea?

    Why am I recently unable to use my mouse to scroll email topics or content?  I can only use the up and down arrows keys to scroll. I am able to use my mouse to scroll through internet searches.  It only seems to have affected my email messages.

    Try a restart.
    Do a backup, using either Time Machine or a cloning program, to ensure files/data can be recovered. Two backups are better than one.
    Try setting up another admin user account to see if the same problem continues. If Back-to-My Mac is selected in System Preferences, the Guest account will not work. The intent is to see if it is specific to one account or a system wide problem. This account can be deleted later.
    Isolating an issue by using another user account
    If the problem is still there, try booting into the Safe Mode using your normal account.  Disconnect all peripherals except those needed for the test. Shut down the computer and then power it back up after waiting 10 seconds. Immediately after hearing the startup chime, hold down the shift key and continue to hold it until the gray Apple icon and a progress bar appear. The boot up is significantly slower than normal. This will reset some caches, forces a directory check, and disables all startup and login items, among other things. When you reboot normally, the initial reboot may be slower than normal. If the system operates normally, there may be 3rd party applications which are causing a problem. Try deleting/disabling the third party applications after a restart by using the application un-installer. For each disable/delete, you will need to restart if you don't do them all at once.

  • HT201251 I want to use 30  ipads to run kiosk software in my restaurant. Can I use one Apple ID (and one credit card) for all devices

    I want to use 30  ipads to run kiosk software in my restaurant. Can I use one Apple ID (and one credit card) for all devices?

    Alternatively you can always manage your iPads (does not matter how many) with a single apple id and all reporting to your account under "find my device" service. Keeping an eye on all your units. Additionally as you mentioned these are for your Restaurant you may find the solutions offered by this company who creates apps and hardware for this purpose: http://www.spartakioskpro.com
    Additionally if you expand beyond those 30 iPads to say 300 you will want to enable or plan on MDM as your best option to automate every ipad to use the same profile and app and ios configuration while also keeping a close eye on all of them via online MDM services like: https://meraki.cisco.com/products/systems-manager

  • Is there a (relatively simple) way to skip tracks with an iPod touch 5th gen using a physical button? I'm aware songs can be skipped on-screen without unlocking the iPod, but I'm looking for a method that doesn't require taking my eyes off the road.

    Is there a (relatively simple) way to skip tracks with an iPod touch 5th gen using a physical button? I'm aware songs can be skipped on-screen without unlocking the iPod, but I'm looking for a method that doesn't require taking my eyes off the road while driving. For that reason, I'm also not interested in adding in headphones or additional devices that have the desired button functions. Going both forward and back would be great but I would be pleased just to have a "sight-free" way to go forward.
    I've seen some mention here and there about ways to maybe change it so the volume buttons change tracks and holding the volume buttons changes the volume... but I don't know what's involved in that or if its even possible/recommended for a new 5th gen iPod. I think its a great device but its sadly lacking in music oriented functions and features... which is disappointing since music is why most people would bother getting one instead of some other "iDevice" :/

    Given that you cannot do what you have asked for, perhaps you simply need to find another solution to your root problem.
    Presumably, you want to skip to the next track because you don't want to hear the current one, and that is because...
    You don't like it.
    You've heard it recently and don't want to hear it now.
    Simply don't want to hear it at this time.
    For problem number 1. Don't put it on the iPod in the first place. (I know, obvious answer!)
    For problem number 2. How about playing from a Smart Playlist (initially created in your iTunes Library) which has only songs you've not played recently?
    For problem number 3. Hhhmmm! Create alternative Playlists for use in the car.
    As for going back to the start of the "now playing" track.... Well, if your Playlist has only songs that you really, really want to hear, then you'll be looking forward to that rather go back to the beginning of the current song.
    I'm not trying to be prescriptive, just giving you food for thought.
    (They are all cheaper options than buying a car which can control the iPod from the steering wheel.)

  • I downloaded mountain lion and then the new office suite (word, ppt, excel) but now when I try to display one of my ppt's it says 'ppt cannot open the file...the file may be corrupt, in use, not a type recognized by ppt etc.." how can I fix it?? HELP

    Did you try to open teh fle by double-clicking its icon? If the file was made with an older version of Office, you may get that message. Try opeing PP and, from its "File" menu, see if you can open the ppt. I've foundthat often gets around that message and then yo ucan save the file from the newer version.
    If that doesn't work, consider asking in the Microsoft Office: Mac forums here:

    PowerPoint is not an Apple product and it seems a lot of people around here avoid Office.

  • When I Open Iphoto it tells me that it can not open current photo library using this version of iphoto.  Any help on what I can do to fix this without loosing all my previous photos?

    For some reason I tried to open Iphoto and it keeps giving me an error message that It can not open my current photo library. 
    It says "You can't open your current photo library using this version of Iphoto. 
    You have made changes to your photo library using a newer version of Iphoto. Do you want to quit and use the latest version of Iphoto, or do you want
    to create a new photo library?"
    I tried updating the software and didn't do nothing for me. 
    Anyone have a solution to this problem, I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks.

    Ok, here is what I would do for that situation. I would back up all your photos on a memory stick, then create a new photo library and re-upload all the photos to the new library. If iphoto wont let you even copy your photos, you should just schedule an appointment at the genius bar. This has never happened to me, but if it did this is what I would be attempting.

  • I imported photos from an old iPhoto (2001) to photo library and can now see them as thumbnails but not when I click on them. The screen is black cannot see or print either. Is there any way to salvage those old photos? I now use iLife09. OS 10.6

    I imported photos from an old iPhoto (2001) to photo library and can now see them only as thumbnails but not when I click on them. The screen is black cannot see or print either. Is there any way to salvage those old photos? I now use iLife09. OS 10.6

    Did you import the old iPhoto library into the new one? That's not what you want to do because you will import all of the original, modified and thumbnail files as if they were original files. Lots of duplicates and useless small photos.
    Do you have a backup copy of the library that you imported into to?  If you do then bring it in and then use  iPhoto Library Manager to merge the two libraries into a new, 3rd library.
    If you don't then you'll have to try to fix the current one and then cull out the duplicates and small useless photos as follows:  make a temporary, duplicate copy of your library and apply the three fixes in order as necessary.
    Fix #1
    1 - delete the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your HD/User/Home()/ Library/Preferences folder.
    2 - delete iPhoto's cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your HD/User/Home()/Library /Caches/com.apple.iPhoto folder. 
    3 - launch iPhoto and try again.
    NOTE: If you're moved your library from its default location in your Home/Pictures folder you will have to point iPhoto to its new location when you next open iPhoto by holding down the Option key when launching iPhoto.  You'll also have to reset the iPhoto's various preferences.
    Fix #2
    Launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and rebuild the library.
    Select the options identified in the screenshot. 
    Fix #3
    Using iPhoto Library Manager  to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
    Click on the Add Library button, navigate to your Home/Pictures folder and select your iPhoto Library folder.
    Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the File ➙ Rebuild Library menu option
    In the next  window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.
    Click on the Create button.
    Note: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments but not books, calendars or slideshows. The original library will be left untouched for further attempts at fixing the problem or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.
    If this doesn't fix the problem you'll have to start over from scratch and create a new library from the files inside the Originals folder of your current library.  But first you should cull out the small photos that would be the thumbnails from the 2001 library.
    Move the Originals folder to the Desktop, open and do a search for Kind=photo, File size is less than 10 KB.  That should find all of the thumbnail files which you can then drag to the Trash.  You might have to make that less than 50 KB. Then Import the remaining photos into a new iPhoto library.

    No. Tracks you purchase from the iTunes Store are for your personal use only and cannot be posted, either separately or as part of a video or slide show, on any public web site or otherwise distributed to others in any way. You can't even legally give that video to your brother.
