Music icon in the left corner of the lock screen

This is my old iPhone 5s and it shows the Apple Music icon on the lock screen, even if I'm not listening to music right now. Installed ios 10.3.3 on it. Are there any options?

MacBook automatically filling WiFi saved Passwords to iPhone, after I removed the Passwords from iPhone.

My iPhone is connecting all the wrong WiFi in frequest places I visits. I painstakingly removed every unnecessary passwords from iPhone, but it got automatically refilled by my mac. I have done boring chore this 2 times already.

The saved password removal process in Mac is very hard , repetitive and incredibly boring, is there any bulk tool? or what should I do?

Edit: Using iPhone 13Pro and MacBook Air M1 (8 Core).

iPhone muting incoming voices on calls

So I’m curious if anyone has had this issue. I noticed it and I can’t find the setting to turn it off. When using my earbuds Jabra 85t I believe. If I’m in a noisy environment either my iPhone or Jabra will silent the person talking even when I’m not. But if I mute my phone I can hear them talking completely with no issue. Anyone else ever ran into this? Or know how I can fix it? Or which settings to change?

Extremely bright videos?? (“White Point”)

Can someone help me with this problem? When viewing videos on social media, the video suddenly explodes with brightness? Is there a solution to this other than reducing white point?

This is honestly a crazy frustrating bug.

And no. This isnt a basic support feature because it is inconsistent with videos that show sudden brightness. This thread would be useful for other facing the same bug.

Accessing deleted Photos without Fingerprint

First of, english is not my first language so sorry if I make mistakes. So this week my Girlfriend dropped her Iphone SE 2020 and since then her homebutton doesn't work. She already disabled the Fingerprintthing completely, and disabled the virbrarions, so the homebutton works right except for the fingerprint. Yesterday she accidentaly deleted a Photo and she now wants to regain it, but if she opens the deletes Photos Folder it won't open without her fingerprint that does not work. Is there another way to access it? Thank you in advance:)

iPhone Pro Max 12 Ghost Touches — driving me crazy!

Anyone else with an iPhone 12 Pro Max having ghost touches on their screen?

Am constantly having problems with my touch screen that won’t resolve for anything. Music play keeps pausing and unpausing randomly. I accidentally bought something because my touch screen registered a touch that wasn’t there!

I got the screen replaced from Apple (took a whopping 8 hours btw) and it STILL is acting up. They said no water damage, no part malfunction, but they replaced it anyway bc I was adamant something was wrong. Three months later, problem seems to be getting worse. Am at my wits end

iPhone 11 Pro Max- light streak in photos

So I take a lot of photos for real estate and unfortunately every photo I take no matter what angle it is from has a problem with any light fixtures that are in the photo. Is there an issue with my device or is this something that this device just does?

I would appreciate any advice

The photo that is attached was not aimed directly at the lights, it was just cropped for privacy purposes

Adding Gmail + 3rd party, "no password" error

I have a small website hosting company, mostly for local businesses. A lot of those businesses use Gmail for email storage (due to cheap space), and then use my server for outgoing email. This means that they send and receive emails for foo@bar.com, but in reality the emails are showing up at foobar@gmail.com

In order for this to work properly, they typically use Gmail's IMAP settings for their incoming server, and then my server's settings for their outgoing server.

A client recently bought a new iPhone (not sure which one, but it's brand new). We set up everything exactly like we've done a thousand times before, but now he's getting an error that says:

Cannot Get Mail
No password provided for "FOOBAR"
Please go to Mail Account Settings and enter a password.

Which seems self explanatory, except that there IS a password there! And I've confirmed that it's exactly right by logging in with the same username and password on his computer.

As an alternative, I tried to create a second account and designated "Google" as the type, letting Mail figure it all out on its own. Doing this DID work to IMAP the emails to the Inbox, but then the phone wouldn't let me change the outgoing mail server! I was able to add a second outgoing server, but there was no way to make it the default.

Any suggestions on how to make either of those methods work properly?

This app appeared on my phone. I don’t remember downloading it, and apparently it’s historically associated with malware. Should I be concerned?

Promptly deleted it, but the whole thing left me a bit spooked.

Is it possible to download videos on iPhone?

Hi guys. I have my iPhone for about 3 months and I still haven't figured out how to download videos. I am not talking about TikTok or Youtube videos, but rather direct link videos with a URL ending in .mp4 for example.

When I open that link, the phone goes into a fullscreen mode automatically as shown here. And it does not let me download.

I have asked this before and nobody knew how to do this. I am beginning to wonder if it's possible at all.

Phone stolen & returned

On public transit yesterday. At a stop a man ran inside, snatched my phone out of my hands, ran out, then threw the phone back inside before the doors closed.

Is anyone aware of any scams that could’ve been implemented in this short window of time? I can’t figure out why the guy decided to return the phone. When he grabbed it from me it was unlocked, and I think the phone has value since it’s an iPhone 13. I’ve already checked my banking apps and it doesn’t look like he transferred money anywhere. Thanks in advance.

iPhone volume glitch

Hi, I recently got an iPhone 12 Pro and I’ve noticed an issue when I have Spotify open and I try to look at my Lock Screen the volume suddenly goes down but when to click the volume up the volume is technically still up. I can only fix the volume if I close the Spotify app and reopen it. I’ve tried a few websites online on sound optimization but nothing has worked. Any tips would be appreciated!

Muted / Silenced Calls

So, I muted my ex’s number and also went into general settings to turn off FaceTime and Phone notifications completely. Just switched them right OFF… but sometimes his calls and FaceTimes still come through. I would block his number but he just calls on unknown. Is there another way to just completely turn off notifications for when he is calling? I don’t mind the little red number saying I’ve missed the call - just want it to not ring and interrupt whatever I’m doing.

Transferring data to new iPhone with a broken Touch ID

Pretty much the title. I currently have the 2020 SE and the entire home button broke on it over a year ago. This wasn't too much of an issue because I was just able to use the digital one you drag around and most features don't require Touch ID. I just today got the newer 2022 SE however and in order to transfer my data I need to use my Touch ID on my old phone, is there any way around this? It would just save a lot of time if I was able to quickly transfer all my data in the setup. Thank you!

Get a new iPhone and exchange the old one for best price value?

What is the right time to exchange the old iPhone for a new one? What is the best timing for exchange to get a good price value? If the battery goes below or near 80%, it is better to get it exchanged for a new one or get a battery replacement? What people think of exchange timing in India?

What do you guys think of the automatic contact name/photo sharing feature?

I didn’t think this feature would bother anyone so much, but whenever it comes up I see people complaining about how annoying and unnecessary it is for some contacts to have a photo with a name forced to be attached to the messages. I don’t really see a big deal. Isn’t it helpful to see who the person is automatically if you don’t already have their phone number?

Scalpers have gone to far and are selling the limited edition Nomad case for over $450

I was on 9to5Mac and came across an article that was covering the new Nomad glow in the dark case. The article had reminded me that I wanted to buy a Nomad case (the magnetic ones) and so I visit the website to see what the glow in the dark case looks like. It's sold out, which wasn't surprising because it's limited edition, but then I noticed that the article had a link to eBay and mentioned scalpers...reselling it for over $450. That is ridiculous. I'm not mad about it because I wasn't interest in buying that case anyways, but I was shocked that they think people will drop that money on that case.

That is all. Have a good day.

Here is the eBay link
