Computer I have Sync'd with is death - can I now back up / synchronize with iCloud and still have everything?

Pretty much like what it says. Previously synced 100% with laptop computer (iTunes, photos, videos, etc.) which now shows the blue screen of death permanently.

If I now go back to iCloud synchronization / backup on my phone, will I have all since it's all on my phone to start?

Portable ITunes was there music I ripped and realize that is probably a separate issue. I have off-site backup which I can access once I get a new laptop.

Thanks in advance.

You can activate the backup to iCloud and it backs up your phone as it is currently. See following information from backups for iOS - Apple Support devices for details of what is included:

With a wireless network connection, you can make a backup of your device using iCloud. You don't need to connect your device to a computer or even be home to save with iCloud.

iCloud backups include virtually all the data and parameters stored on your device. iCloud backups do not include:

  • Data already stored in iCloud, like Contacts, calendars, Notes, My Photo Stream and iCloud photo library
  • Data stored in other cloud services, such as Gmail and Exchange email
  • Settings and information Apple pay
  • Tap Settings ID
  • iCloud library and App Store content (if it is still available in the iTunes, App, or iBooks Store, you can type to re - download your content already purchased.)

    My husband doesn't like the itunes account is under my name.  I have a way that he can have his own name and sign on with her and still exist on the family account?  Also, have we HAVE two-step verification?   It's a real pain.

    Yes it can have its own ID and share your content via the family sharing, he needs to sign out of your ID and to create his own, then one of you needs to invite another family sharing.

  • Why not sync calendar with iCloud?

    I have an iPhone 5 s, iPad 2 Mini and MacBook Air (mid 2011). I use the application calendar and reminders to stock up on all three of these devices and all my software is up to date. When I create or edit an event or task in the calendar or recalls on my iPhone, the change is reflected in the iPad and vice versa. However, I don't see the changes reflected in the calendar or reminders for MacBook. Similarly, when I create events on my MacBook, I don't see them on my iPhone or iPad. My account iMessage, contacts and notes are still fully functional and updated between all three devices. Calendar and reminders seem to be the only problem. I have the calendars and boxes checked in my preferences to iCloud reminders.

    Try to go into System Preferences/iCloud and stop synchronization. Wait a few minutes, then recheck the timing.

  • Synchronization with iCloud and pictures problems

    I recently discovered I was missing a few old photos Photos Apple and iCloud. It's about a years of photos from 2014. I think they disappeared right around the time Apple dropped iPhoto and switched to the photo program. I was able to locate the photos in my old iPhoto Library and was able to import them to Apple pictures - so I have them on my computer - but they are not automatically synchronized to iCloud.

    I would like to have all my photos stored in iCloud - I searched the FAQ and user forums but could not find a description of this particular problem.

    Any ideas on how I can get iCloud to import these newly added photos?

    a few thoughts - but with so little information we can only make assumptions

    1 - get up-to-date - you say you have OS X 10.10.5 - you are six updates behind - the latest version is El Captain OS X 10.11.6 - it have many bug fixes and many new features

    2 communicate. us your iCloud and on Mac and on every IOS device status settings

    3 - iCloud is not a backup, is a synchronization service - you need a system with the downloaded original and a backup in addition to the iCloud photo library


  • Why can't I manually manage music with iCloud and Apple active?

    In a previous discussion, the following point kept deployed: "you must disable the iCloud library in settings on the iPhone, and then manage it manually the music and videos option will be available again."

    True, but... WHY? # * % $! ' s sake, I should be able to choose what songs go on my device, regardless of source of the source file. As it is, when I keep iCloud and Apple music enabled on my iPad, I find myself with random files on it which I can't delete until I stopped the two aforementioned services. More than once, my iPad has mysteriously filled to capacity with I not not choose or play music.

    It is a major problem, and it needs to be fixed. Apple, please allow users to control their own devices and files the way they prefer. If I want a song on my device, I'll put it here, my computer, from iCloud, Apple music or from iTunes. I just want to play, I'll listen without downloading it. Period. Any necessary additional complications.

  • My computer works fine with 64 bit Vista, but a large part of my software does not work. Can I go back to 34-bit without having to clear everything and start over?

    I found that Vista 64 bit works well on my computer, but many software packages that I wish to continue to use will not work on the 64-bit version.  Is there a form any upward migration of 64 bit to 32 bit, which would not require destroying my entire system and starting over?  I really want to do that because I spent the last 2 months, getting 64-bit set so that it accepts all of my hardware.  Except for an upward migration, what about the possibility of a dual boot between 64 and 32?

    If you have a 64-bit version of Windows installation and you want to
    to go to a 32-bit installation of any version of Windows, no. One
    upgrade or downgrade is not possible. The only way to change the

    Except for an upward migration, what about the possibility of a dual boot between 64 and 32?

    Sure. You can certainly do.

  • Apple Mail rules do not work with iCloud and shipping

    I have recently started using iCloud as my primary e-mail for IMAP and SMTP service.  However, I always have my e-mail account non-Apple of active origin with a setup of the redirector to point to my iCloud email.  I also put my answer use the original non-Apple e-mail.  This configuration works very well except that the e-mail rules don't seem to work on forwarded e-mail messages.

    When you use the iCloud SMTP server, from Apple Mail or from the site from iCloud, you can use your TSA address address "from". You cannot use a different, non-iCloud, email address.

  • Outlook cannot synchronize with icloud for today

    Today, Outlook 2011 fails to synchronize with iCloud IMAP. Until yesterday it worked very well with "p01 -" as a server but, since this morning, I have nothing. Perhaps it is due to new security double, but Outlook has nothing to deal with and there is no way, I think, to disable.

    I tried to change it to "", I also tried to change the name of the user with or without "", I tried without SSL...

    Mail connects and syncs seamlessly with iCloud, but Outlook cannot

    OK, now I have the answer: it is because of the new two-step verification.

    I searched how to disable this check in two steps, because it is very annoying. Whenever I am connected to something that I had to wait for six figures sent to another device. So I found that it is possible to disable this check in two steps on the web site of iCloud in the account settings.

    I disabled the two-step verification, and a few seconds later, Outlook has been able to sync again with iCloud IMAP.

  • Unable to sync Mac (10.9.5) to iCloud and iDevices but reverse works

    My problem is simple. I just added a calendar to my MBA (10.9.5) and attempted to share the calendar with my family.

    After that my family has not received an e-mail to synchronize with the new calendar, I watched my iCloud account. The new schedule is not on my iCloud account either.

    I crossed all basic and advanced troubleshooting guides on and other websites of third parties without result. Yes, my calendar is listed under iCloud. My calendar is set to sync with my iCloud account in system preferences. I am connected to my iCloud account on my Mac. I followed all of the settings on the Apple support pages. I even cleaned my calendars and disconnected and then reconnected my iCloud account on my Mac.

    I tried a reverse test. I added a calendar in iCloud. Miraculously, he immediately synced with my Mac and my iDevices. In short, iCloud will synchronize with my iDevices and Macs, but my Mac does not synchronize with iCloud and my iDevices.

    I really don't want to enter all the information in iCloud. Suggestions on how to solve the problem?

    OK, after an hour of frustration (my iCloud account is sent to push), I disconnected my iCloud account and then connected again. Of course the restoration did not understand the new calendar, so I imported my backup. The calendar now shows upward. This is a serious flaw that Apple needs to fix.
