If you’ve recently updated your Mac to macOS Big Sur, you may have noticed an issue with your contacts. Have all of your Contacts suddenly been duplicated since the upgrade? If so, you’re not alone.
You can certainly go through the process of removing the duplicates, as some have suggested in the Apple Community forum. But there is another suggestion, used by our own Sebastien Page, that is the quickest and easiest way to go.
Basically, you’ll restore your Contacts to the last backup in iCloud, here’s how.
As you probably know, Preview on Mac automatically saves changes you make to an image or PDF file. While most times this is benefit, it can also be a detriment. You can create a duplicate before you start working on the file, but if you forget, then you’ve just changed the original. And this isn’t always what you want.
At the same time, you may make several changes that you decide you don’t want to use after all. But again, you’ve changed and saved the file already.
Here, we’ll show you how to view and recover previous versions of PDFs and images in Preview. This allows you to go back and grab an earlier version to use or copy.
Upon refreshing the /r/jailbreak subreddit Wednesday evening, many jailbreakers were pleasantly surprised to learn about the release of a novel jailbreak-centric utility dubbed Inferius by @marijuanARM.
After a quick scan of the release notes on the project’s official GitHub page, it becomes apparent that Inferius was created to aid users in the process of creating and restoring from custom IPSW files. Quite the attention-grabbing feat indeed, but you’ll definitely want to read more about Inferius before you start jumping right in.
If your handset is jailbroken with unc0ver and you’ve either decided that you revert to a vanilla version of iOS or that you want to start over with a different jailbreak tool, it’s important to know that the unc0ver jailbreak incorporates a mechanism for rolling your handset back to a pre-jailbroken state.
In this step-by-step tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps necessary to remove the unc0ver jailbreak and all of its components from your iPhone or iPad. This process is recommended over totally restoring your handset because it will preserve your valuable personal data and ensure that your device can still be jailbroken in the future if you happen to change your mind.
Whether you’ve jailbroken with the checkra1n tool and fancy reverting back to a vanilla version of iOS or you merely want to uninstall checkra1n to try a different jailbreak tool, the checkra1n jailbreak includes a convenient built-in utility for removing the jailbreak with just a few simple taps.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to remove the checkra1n jailbreak without completely restoring your iPhone or iPad. This method is traditionally recommended over a full-blown device restore because it doesn’t erase your data and it preserves your version of iOS. The latter is especially useful if you’re removing checkra1n to try another jailbreak since other jailbreaks can be picky about the versions of iOS they support.
When you use Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, you save the document you’re working on every so often. And if you have iCloud Drive turned on, versions of your documents are saved periodically as you work on them.
So if you make tons of changes and decide that you want to revert to a previous version, you can restore a previous document.
We’ve already shown you how to do this on Mac. This tutorial shows you how to view and restore previous document versions in Pages, Numbers, and Keynote on iPhone and iPad.
If you’ve updated your Mac to macOS Catalina, then you’ll notice a specific app missing; iTunes. You’ve probably heard that iTunes was going away, but now that it’s truly gone, you’ll have to manage your devices differently.
You might have used iTunes to back up or restore your iPhone, sync specific items with your iPad, or simply manage your devices.
The bad news is that you can’t use iTunes on Mac to do this anymore. But the good news is that there is another way and it’s super easy.
Here’s how to use Finder instead of iTunes on Mac to manage your devices.
Whether you’re ramping up for your first iPhone or upgrading to the iPhone 11, you need a simple way to make a seamless transition. You might want to migrate your data from Android, create a backup of your current iPhone for an easy move, or even erase data from a phone you’re getting rid of.
Whatever the case may be, one tool can take care of all of these tasks and more. AnyTrans is an intuitive iPhone manager that lets you transfer, back up, and manage the content on your device, all in one spot.
We have covered AnyTrans in the past for backups and transfers as well as AnyTrans for Cloud to manage files. But now, we have a brand new AnyTrans to introduce to you, AnyTrans 8. This latest version of AnyTrans gives you new features and enhancements that make managing your iPhone content easier than ever.
Veteran jailbreakers are likely familiar with a handy utility called Cydia Eraser, which Saurik released several years ago to help jailbreakers ‘un-jailbreak’ their pwned handsets without restoring and updating their firmware via iTunes. Saurik’s busy life has prevented him from updating Cydia Eraser for modern versions of iOS, but it now looks like there could be a light at the end of the tunnel.
iOS developer Sam Gardner, perhaps better known to the community
as Samg_is_a_ninja, took
to /r/jailbreak this weekend to tease a spectacular project that he has
been working on for nearly a year and a half, and he calls it Succession.
