A group of hackers claims to have access to a large number of iCloud and Apple email accounts. Allegedly there are hundreds of millions of stolen accounts and passwords in the database, which media outlets have not been able to fully verify. Apple responded by confirming there have been no breaches in any of their systems. So where did the Apple accounts leak from?
There is no slider to disable the "iPhone Backup Failed" notification that pesters you when your iCloud storage is full in iOS 10.3, but there are several ways to stop it from continually popping up.
Disable Automatic iCloud Backup
There are times when fans of the stock Notes app want to copy their notes between iOS devices. First off, restoring from a backup will copy all notes stored in the backup to a new iPhone. However, setting up an iPhone as a new device (and not using the backup) is a different story. Getting a new iPhone, iPad or iPod touch means old notes could potentially be lost. iCloud will automatically sync notes saved to iCloud folders, but locally stored notes can easily be stranded on an older device.
Selling an iPhone on eBay or Craigslist can be a good way to make extra money. Often selling directly to a new owner can net more cash than a trade-in. In order to make sure your personal information is safe, and the iPhone does not have an Activation Lock enabled, its important to follow a few steps to prepare the device for sale. Once the iPhone has been removed from your Apple ID and erased, the new owner can jump right in.
Buying used iPhones on eBay or Craigslist can save a lot of money. The only problem is that some sellers may not be telling the whole story. Apple has taken steps to improve security on iOS devices, including something called Activation Lock to help prevent theft. Protect yourself from buying a useless, stolen iPhone by taking a few moments to check that everything is in order.
