If you have issues with iCloud Drive, don’t despair. Here’s how to resolve iCloud syncing issues and get it working again.

iCloud Drive cloud logo raining
Having problems getting iCloud to sync your data between systems? You’re not alone; many developers have expressed their frustration with iCloud problems since its introduction. Fortunately, there are many fixes you can try to get your macOS and iOS apps syncing with Apple’s servers. Don’t be afraid to try them all if the first few don’t work out.

Keep reading to learn more.

1. Restart and Wait

iCloud can take some time to kick in when you make a change. According to some reports, this can be up to 10 minutes.

You might find that your problem resolves itself with a bit of patience, but while you’re at it, you can also try restarting all affected devices. You also may want to plug your device in—sometimes we find that photos won’t sync to iCloud until the phone is charging.

2. Check You’re Using the Right Account

macos icloud account

It might sound obvious, but if you’re not using the same iCloud account on both devices, then they’ll never sync correctly. Head to Settings > [Your Name] on iOS or System Preferences > Apple ID on macOS and check which account is currently associated with the device.

You can only have one iCloud account active at a time, so make sure they match up. If they don’t, you will need to sign out of the incorrect account and log in with the correct credentials.

3. Make Sure iCloud Is Working Properly

Apple System Status

Every service experiences downtime at some point. While most planned outages occur at night when you’re asleep, catastrophic failure or human error can sometimes bring even the most reliable services down.

To check Apple’s current iCloud status, head to Apple’s System Status page and look for the green dots. Any ongoing issues should appear at the bottom of the screen.

4. Ensure You’ve Enabled iCloud for Your App

macos icloud apps

There are some elements you can change in your Settings (iOS) or System Preferences (macOS) in order to remedy apps that won’t sync.

On your iOS device, head to Settings > [Your Name] > iCloud and make sure the app you want to sync is listed and enabled. You can also try toggling this off and back on to restart the sync process.

Apps that have access to iCloud Drive on macOS will appear under System Preferences > Apple ID > iCloud.

5. Check That Apps Have Cellular Access

Do you have trouble syncing to iCloud while on mobile data, but not on Wi-Fi? You may have disabled cellular access for some apps.

Head to Settings > Cellular and scroll down to find a list of apps on your phone. Any apps that have their slider turned off will only work on Wi-Fi. Try enabling data access for any apps that you want to sync all the time, but note this may increase your data usage.

6. Rule Out Date and Time Discrepancies

macos timezone

You can run into a lot of problems when your iPhone’s date and time aren’t current. Many apps will simply refuse to connect to the internet at all. In order to avoid these problems, you can set the time to automatically update, which will keep your devices in sync and avoid these issues.

On iOS, head to Settings > General > Date & Time > Set Automatically. On macOS, you can do this from System Preferences > Date & Time > Time Zone.

7. Check That You’re Syncing the Right Folder

For apps that allow you to customize which folder you use to store data, ensure that the paths match up in both instances. You should make sure that your various iOS and macOS apps are looking for data in the same location, if applicable.

8. Reset and Restore Your Device

None of the above has helped and your device won’t access or sync iCloud data at all? You might want to take a stronger step and reset your phone to clear up any lingering issues. Before you do so, you should back up your phone to avoid losing any data.

To reset and restore your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Reset and select Erase all Content and Settings from the menu.

You can restore the backup you made when you set up the phone afresh. Wait for the Apps & Data screen to load, tap Restore from iCloud Backup, then sign in with your Apple ID. Once you’re finished, your device will be near-identical to how you started, except you’ll need to add or authorize your various accounts again.

Hopefully, this will clear up whatever issue you had with iCloud Drive. If it still doesn’t work, check out some of the most common iCloud issues and how to fix them.

9. Look Into App-Specific Support

If you’ve got an app that uses data syncing to transfer between different platforms, there’s a good chance the developer offers help documentation to help you overcome your issues. Much of the time, developers can pinpoint exact files and folders you should delete in order to solve your issue.

A few apps that include specific guides to solving iCloud issues include DayOne, 1Password, and Ulysses. Search online for specific help if your issue lies with another app.

10. Use an iCloud Alternative

Many applications give you a choice of whether or not to use iCloud. If you can avoid using it, you’ll sidestep many of the issues that have plagued the service.

For example, apps like DayOne and 1Password both allow you to use Dropbox. Plus, third-party cloud storage solutions often provide you with more space and less hassle. And don’t worry, you can still use other iCloud features, like Find My iPhone and email.

Some of the best cloud storage alternatives include Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive.

Make It Easier to Use iCloud

Hopefully, these tips helped you clear up your iCloud Drive issues; most users have reported that one of these tips helped to get them back on track. While iCloud isn’t perfect, its integration with Apple platforms makes it the de facto choice for many users. Now you can enjoy it as Apple intended.

You think that this is a typical scenario and that your cell phone will get its much-needed recharge so that it can be ready for the next day to send out hundreds of texts, tweets, Facebook posts, Instagram browsing, Snaps, etc… You plug your iPhone into your charger and….nothing.

“My iPhone Won’t Charge!!”

You’ve done it. You’ve uttered those horrible four words that instantly throw you into a panic. Your hands start to sweat, you’re tired but now jittery, and you don’t know what to do. This scenario can be devastating. You try unplugging and replugging your phone into the charger with no luck. Then you start to jam the charger into your phone with force, thinking that brute strength should solve the problem. But in the end, that doesn’t work. You’re now sitting on your bed, on the verge of tears, unable to charge your phone, and it’s about to die.

While we at Go Mobile didn’t intend to write a horror story, we feel as though we need need to impart this knowledge to everyone out there so that if you experience this terrifying situation, don’t panic. There are ways to fix your charging port, and even some ways to do it yourself!

If you are having difficulty troubleshooting this issue, contact us today. Our expert repair technicians can even fix your phone while you wait!

Do It Yourself

Most likely, the reason your iPhone won’t charge is due to one of four things:

  • Your iPhone’s Software is Preventing Your Phone From Charging
  • The Charger Cable/Lightning Cable is Damaged
  • The Wall Adapter is Damaged
  • The Charging Port at the bottom of your iPhone is Damaged or Has Something Blocking the Connection

Your iPhone’s Software is Preventing Your Phone From Charging

Let’s start with the easiest solution; your phone’s software. When you charge your phone, it’s actually the software instructing the phone to charge. So you’ll need to force reset/hard reset your phone to test this method. Try a hard reset by holding both the on/off button and the home button for up to 30 seconds. Eventually, your phone will restart, resulting in the screen first turning black, then the Apple logo will appear on the screen. When the Apple logo appears, you can stop holding both buttons and allow the phone to restart. Once the phone fully reboots, try plugging the phone into your charger. Hopefully, this easy solution solved your problem. If not, you’ll want to check off the next possible solution.

The Charger Cable/Lightning Cable is Damaged

Check your Lightning Cable to see if there is any visible damage to the cable itself. Inspect both the cord and the connector. If you do see the damage, perhaps it’s time to buy a new Lightning Cable. If there is no visible damage, try using your computer as a charger by connecting your iPhone to your Lightning Cable, then plug in the cable to your computer’s USB port. If this method doesn’t work, then you may have identified the problem. Lastly, please note that if you have a non-Apple (off-brand) Lightning Cable, those products tend to wear and break more easily than Apple products.

The Wall Adapter is Damaged

If the first two methods didn’t work, it’s now time to check your Wall Adapter. The simplest way to make sure your Wall Adapter is working properly is to try plugging it into a different outlet. This may sound stupid, but there are times when a fuse may have blown in your house or apartment, and that one outlet or room may not be powered. If your outlets are working properly, try using another Lightning Cable. If both cables produce the same outcome, then you’ll know that your Wall Adapter is faulty.

The Charging Port at the Bottom of Your iPhone is Damaged or Has Something Blocking the Connection

Finally, if all else fails, it’s time to put on your best MacGyver impression and get technical. Most of the time your Charging Port is the culprit as to why your iPhone is not charging. First, you’ll want to get a flashlight and look directly into the port to see if there is any visible debris (lint, gunk, etc…). If there is, it should be easy to remove (we’ll get to how in a moment). If there is not any visible debris, it may be hiding where you cannot see.

So how do you remove the nuisance from your iPhone’s Charging Port? VERY CAREFULLY!! You can try using a new, unused toothbrush to brush away any visible debris gently. You can also use a cue tip, which is very gentle and non-invasive. We strongly recommend against using items such as toothpicks and paperclips, as they can potentially damage the charging port. Paperclips are particularly hazardous because they conduct electricity and are very sharp. Whatever method you use, if it works, you’ll start to see visible debris exit the Charging Port. This is a good indication that the Charging Port is the culprit. After you’ve dislodged enough gunk, try charging your phone again.

When You’ve Tried Everything But Failed to Fix It

Hopefully, the DIY methods have fixed your problem. However, sometimes you can try everything and still not achieve the results you’re so desperate to attain. Now it’s time to bring your phone to a cell phone repair store.

At Go MObile, we have customers come in all the time with this problem. They burst into the store and start pleading with our staff to fix their phone. Usually, at this point their phone is dead. And there is nothing worse than a dead cell phone that won’t charge!

So what do we do to diagnose and fix the problem? First, we try everything you’ve already tried at home. Believe it or not, lots of customers may have overlooked a simple issue. It’s not uncommon for our staff to try a new Lightning Cable and the phone starts to charge. “But I tried that at home,” a customer once said. “I did exactly what you just did, and it didn’t work!”

Don’t beat yourself up. This happens frequently. You had a faulty Lightning Cable or a fault Wall Adapter. It happens to the best of us. After we’ve exhausted all possible scenarios, it may be determined that your Charging Port is damaged. At Go Mobile, our expertly trained technicians can repair your cell phone and replace your Charging Port and have your phone up and running in no time.

What If It’s Not The Charging Port

If your Charging Port is not damaged and we’ve identified that your phone is in working condition, we’ll take a look at your battery. Often this is the reason why your iPhone won’t charge. However, this is a straightforward and easy fix. Go Mobile can replace your battery and repair your cell phone while you wait!

So, if you ever try to plug your phone in and utter these four awful words, my iPhone won’t charge, you now are armed with the knowledge of fixing this disastrous problem. First, try fixing it yourself. But be CAREFUL! You don’t want to do more damage to your cell phone and create a new issue. You may want to bring your iPhone to the professionals at Go Mobile to assist you with this all too common problem.

And in the end, if you still have no luck after all this troubleshooting, contact Go Mobile cellphone repair store for your iPhone repair needs.

If you can’t charge your iPhone or iPad, whether it’s the latest iPhone 12 or iPad Pro, or an older iPhone 6s or iPad Air, there’s a lot you can try on your own before contacting Apple for help. Sure, sometimes it’s a hardware problem with the Lightning or USB-C connector or the battery, but often enough it’s a software issue that a few simple steps can fix.

If so, follow along and we’ll get you back up and battery running in no time!

1. Force a restart

If your iPhone or iPad won’t charge, one of the first and easiest things to try is a forced restart. Make all the “reboot Windows” jokes you want but sometimes bad bits get stuck and need to be flushed out. Follow these instructions to force a reboot, or even reset your iPhone.

2. Switch outlets or ports

Funny as it sounds, sometimes outlets or USB ports just don’t work. That’s especially true if you’re plugging into a wall or computer you’ve never plugged into before. It can also happen if an electrical or other problem occurs in your regular outlet or port.

So, make sure you try plugging into a different outlet or USB port and see if your iPhone or iPad starts to charge. If it does, you’re good. If not, keep reading.

3. Switch cables

Like outlets, cables can fail. Sometimes they get chewed up by the wear and tear of travel or even household life. Other times, especially for third party cables, defects catch up with them. If there’s no problem with the iPhone or iPad, and no problem with the power source, you need to check the cable in-between.

Try a different cable. If you don’t have one handy, try one from a family member, friend, schoolmate, colleague, or even one from a store in the mall. Just get your hands on a cable or two other than your regular and see how goes. If it works, awesome. If not, keep reading.

4. Restore in iTunes

After trying the easy fixes, it’s time to try the harder ones. In this case, restoring your iPhone or iPad in Finder (on your Mac) or iTunes (on Windows and older Macs. A computer-based restore is a safer bet than iCloud because it actually offloads, re-installs, and reloads your data rather than doing everything in-place and on your device. That can sometimes shake loose bad bits that even a forced restart or iCloud restore can’t. If you use an encrypted backup, it’ll even restore your passwords so you can get back up and running faster.

You’ll need to back up your device to your Mac, then erase it, then restore it.

5. Contact Us

Sometimes a problem really is a problem. Like any physical connector, the Lightning or 30-pin Dock port is subject to both wear-and-tear and electrical failure. There could also be an issue with your battery. If you have AppleCare+, don’t walk, run to get it fixed. If you don’t, get in touch with us we offer a free estimate and free diagnosis then you can weigh the cost of repair against the cost of upgrading to a new device.

Your fixes?

It doesn’t matter if your iPhone is older, or the best iPhone you can buy right now, problems can still arise. If you had an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad that you couldn’t charge, and one of the above fixes worked for you, let me know! If something else worked, let me know that as well!

Fix flickering widgets in iOS 14

Fix flickering widgets in iOS 14

Home Screen widgets have become increasingly popular since the release of iOS 14. However, because this is an entirely new feature, the new iPhone glances come with a fair share of bugs and glitches. Sometimes the widgets turn grey, display a black screen or don’t load any data at all.

Widgets can also start flickering in a continuous loop! The flashing doesn’t stop until you delete the widget. Intermittent blinking can occur both on the Home Screen, as well as as in the Add Widget panel. This bug generates a system-wide reaction, causing all your widgets to flicker, making it difficult for you to determine which one causes the problem.

What Causes Widgets To Flicker?

According to Eric, on, the intermittent widget flashing is caused by apps that use custom fonts.

Some of the most popular third-party apps that use this option are Widgetsmith and Color Widgets.
The flickering is often triggered after installing app updates or when the user re-configures a widget in its main app.

According to user mpmontanez (from Apple’s Developer forums) the flashing widgets issue occurs when iOS 14 tries to serve a cached version of a widget while initializing the updated one.

3 Ways To Fix Flickering Widgets

1. Reboot iPhone

Users have managed to stop the intermittent flickering of the widgets by force restarting iPhone. Quickly press and release Volume Up button, do the same with Volume Down and press & hold the Side button until the Apple logo is displayed on the screen. Release Side button and wait for the iPhone to boot up.

2. Re-Install Faulty Widget App

Flashing usually starts when you update, add or edit a widget. Long-press on the widget in question and remove it from the Home Screen, to stop all other widgets from blinking. Next, delete the app the causes the flashing problem and re-install it to prevent the flickering bug from re-occurring.

3. Remove Color Widget

We found that in most cases Color Widgets is the app to blame for causing the flickering widgets bug. Perhaps because it heavily relies on custom widget.
In our case, we recently updated to version 1.4.9 and all the widgets on the Home Screen started blinking after adding a new color widget.
Fix: The solution was to remove the widget in question. Re-configuring it from the Color Widgets app did not solve the problem and we ended up deleting the app and re-installing it.

Contrary to what many people thought of display issues like screen flickering being caused by a damaged screen component, software-related factors like iOS bugs can also trigger occurrence of these symptoms. As a matter of fact, display issues including a flickering display have emerged among the post-update issues raised by some iPhone owners after installing new update to iOS. If for some reason you would end up facing the same problem on your new iPhone after updating to iOS version 13.2.3, this post highlights some potential solutions for you to try on. Read on to find out how to deal with screen flickering issue on your iphone 11 Pro following the recent iOS update installation.

Troubleshooting iPhone 11 Pro screen flickering issue after iOS update

The following procedures will help rule out any iOS bugs that might have ruined your iPhone’s display system and trigger the screen to flicker. You can try all these methods before taking your iPhone to a service center.


First solution: Restart your iPhone.

Different issues could instigate from an iOS update and atypical display behaviors like screen flickering are among them. Often times, the transpiring symptoms are due to some minor post-update flaws and therefore can easily be remedied by rebooting the iPhone. That said, performing a soft reset is the first recommended solution for you to try. This will help clear out random system caches and post-update errors that caused the display system to suddenly become unstable. It doesn’t affect any saved information on your iPhone, so you don’t need to back up files beforehand. Just follow these steps:

  1. Simultaneously press and hold the Side and Volume Up buttons for a few seconds.
  2. Release both buttons when the Slide to Power off bar appears.
  3. Swipe or drag the bar to turn your device off.
  4. After about 30 seconds, press and hold the Side button and then release when the Apple logo appears.

Try to observe how your iPhone screen behaves after the soft reset. If screen flickering continues, try other options to rule out other possible triggers.

Second solution: Adjust your iPhone’s screen brightness.

Some iPhone owners who have faced with the same display issue after an iOS update installation were able to find temporary remedies by adjusting their phone’s screen brightness. To see if this tweak will deliver positive results, try to adjust the screen brightness of your iPhone 11 Pro with these steps:

  1. From the Home screen, tap on Settings.
  2. Scroll down and tap Display & Brightness.
  3. Drag the slider under Brightness to the left or right to reduce or increase screen brightness.

You can also enable Auto-Brightness to let your device adjust the display brightness based on its surroundings. Simply toggle the switch next to Auto-brightness to turn the feature On.

Another temporary solution to post-update display issues, particularly those depicted by screen flickering symptoms is to enable reduce transparency on your phone. Doing so enhances contrast to some backgrounds and thereby augmenting legibility. Here’s how to activate this feature on your iPhone 11 Pro:

  1. From the Home screen, tap Settings.
  2. Select General.
  3. Scroll down to and tap on Accessibility.
  4. Select the option to Increase Contrast.
  5. Then toggle the Reduce Transparency switch to enable the feature.

See if any of these tweaks is able to stop the screen flickering symptoms on your device.

Third solution: Check and manage internal memory.

Screen flickering can also occur among other performance issues attributed to insufficient memory or low storage space. While this isn’t likely applicable to your iPhone given that it’s new and packed with bigger storage capacity, similar issues can also be triggered if any of your downloaded apps is acting up and using up a significant amount of storage. To clear this out, follow these steps to check and manage memory status of your iPhone 11 Pro:

  1. From the Home screen, tap on Settings.
  2. Select General.
  3. Tap iPhone Storage.
  4. Tap the option to view more information on the Used storage and Available Memory.

You can also view how much memory each app has used. If necessary, delete all unused apps to free up memory space on your device.


Fourth solution: Reset all settings on your iPhone 11 Pro to fix screen flickering issue after updating.

Eliminating invalid system settings can also help fix the problem, especially if some critical settings were overwritten by the recent update and that resulted in some conflicts. There’s no need to worry of losing important files afterwards because this reset does not affect the internal data. However, all your current system settings and customized options are deleted. Just follow these steps if you wish to proceed with this reset:

  1. From the Home screen, tap on Settings.
  2. Select General.
  3. Scroll down and tap on Reset.
  4. Tap Reset all settings from the given options.
  5. Enter your passcode if prompted to continue.
  6. Confirm action by tapping the option to reset all settings on your device.

After the reset, all default values and options are restored, so you will need to re-enable necessary features, particularly those that are disabled by default.


Fifth solution: Restore your iPhone to its factory default settings (factory reset).

A factory reset wipes everything from your iPhone storage including saved apps, contacts, customized settings, and personal information. Any complex system errors inflicted by the recent iOS update implementation that trigger screen flickering issue will also be deleted in the process. Any other associated symptoms are also fixed. But the main downside you should note is on permanent data loss. That said, creating a backup is highly recommended before you proceed with this reset. Once you’ve secured your backup file, follow these steps to factory reset your iPhone 11 Pro through settings menu:

  1. From the Home screen, tap on Settings.
  2. Select General.
  3. Scroll down and tap on Reset.
  4. Tap Erase all content and settings from the given options.
  5. Enter your passcode if prompted to continue.
  6. Confirm action by tapping the option to erase and reset your iPhone

Alternatively, you can use iTunes to manually erase and restore your iPhone system from a previous iOS backup through a computer.

Last resort: Restore your iPhone from an iOS backup (system downgrade).

Resorting to an iOS downgrade can be considered among the last options if all else failed to fix the problem. This can be deemed a better move while waiting for Apple to issue anew fix patch. The following steps will walk you through restoring your iPhone 11 Pro from a previous backup via recovery mode. This however is only possible if you’ve managed to backup your iPhone data on your computer before updating to iOS 13.2.3. If you did, then you may start restoring your iPhone whenever you’re ready:

  1. Connect your iPhone to a computer using the original USB cable or Lightning cable that came with it.
  2. Open iTunes on your Windows and/or earlier Mac computer or Finder app on your Mac running macOS Catalina.
  3. While your device is connected, quickly press and release the Volume Up key.
  4. Then quickly press and release the Volume Down key.
  5. Next, press and hold the Side button until the Connect to iTunes or recovery mode screen appears. Do not release the button if you  see the Apple logo as you’ll need to boot your phone in recovery mode.

Shortly after you see the Connect to iTunes screen, you will be prompted with the next instructions via message prompts. If prompted to Update or Restore your iPhone in iTunes, select Restore to erase your device and restore it from a recent iOS backup saved on your computer drive via iTunes.


What to do if screen flickering issue continues on your iPhone 11 Pro?

Increased Battery Drain in iOS 14 and watchOS 7

Increased Battery Drain in iOS 14 and watchOS 7.

Are your iPhone and Apple Watch experiencing increased battery drain ever since you updated to iOS 14 and watchOS 7? Apple has recently acknowledged the problem and released a support document that provides a solution for this and a series of other glitches including missing GPS mapping during workouts and other data missing from the Fitness app.


Apple recommends to unpair Apple Watch, back up both your iPhone and wrist-worn device, erase both of them and restore from backups.

Common iOS 14 and watchOS 7 Problems

The troubleshooting sequence should be applied if your devices experience two or more symptoms from the following list:

  • Increased battery drain on iPhone or Apple Watch, or both.
  • Missing workout maps in the Fitness app on iPhone for workouts recorded with your Apple Watch, with GPS-enabled.
  • Activity, Heart Rate, or other health-related apps don’t work or load data on Apple Watch.
  • Fitness app and/or Health app fail to launch or update data on iPhone.
  • The Health app and/or Fitness app is reporting an unreal amount of data storage on your iPhone.
  • The Activity app is showing wrong amount of data storage on your Apple Watch.
  • Environmental sound levels data and/or headphone audio levels data from Apple Watch is missing in the Health app on iPhone.

How To Unpair Apple Watch

    • 1. Open Watch app on the paired iPhone.
    • 2. In the My Watch tab, tap on All Watches.
    • 3. Tap on the ‘i’ icon, next to the watch that you want to unpair.
    • 4. Use the Unpair Apple Watch option.​

Fact: Before your Apple Watch is erased, the iPhone creates a new backup of your device, which you can use later on to restore your smartwatch from.

How To Create iPhone Backup

With iCloud

    • 1. Open Settings on your iPhone.
    • 2. Tap your name, available at the top of the screen.
    • 3. Open iCloud.
    • 4. Make sure that Health is enabled, or tap the toggle to turn it ON.
    • 5. Tap on iCloud Backup.
    • 6. iCloud Backup has to be switched ON.

So, having a backup of all the digital data stored on your iPhone is mandatory. This helps, in the worst case scenario, that you lose or destroy your iOS device. With a backup available, you have a way to recover your data and upload it on a new iPhone. Backups can be done via iTunes or iCloud.
