  1. Random Connect to iPhone


    Hi!

    I'm sitting in front of it my new PC I just bought, minding my own business.

    Suddenly a notice pops up and says your photos are ready.. and then I click it and find that all the pics from my iPhone are suddenly copied to the PC into the Photos App. This is so weird because I have never connected my iPhone to the PC. The phone does not sync to iCloud. Besides I don't even have iCloud on the PC.

    The iPhone was sitting on the table nearby. I am extremely confused and worried because the PC just randomly copied all the pictures from my phone.

    I tried googling but couldn't find anything. I found articles on 'How to connect your iPhone to Windows' and they all had 3-5 steps you had to follow through. But mine just did it on it's own without me wanting to do it!!

    Can anyone explain how this happened??? I would love some clue!!!!

    :)

  2. Can't connect Windows 10 laptop to iPhone 7 mobile hotspot

    In the properties of your wifi connection on Windows, enable 'use random IP Adresses'. I had the same flickering connection message on my iphone and this helped

  3. Nokia Lumia 920 has no cellular connection

    About a week ago, my phone stopped connecting to my home's cellular network. Everyone else in my family (same data plan, but iPhones) can connect without any issues.

    My phone won't connect unless it can get 4G, which happens at random.

    Help???

  4. Random Connect to iPhone

    Hi

    If anyone can help.. i have an update. Been racking my brains for hours and realized that the PC did not communicate with iPhone.

    It somehow accessed the pictures from my Macbook Pro (iPhone backups). Just as weird because obviously I did not enable either machine to do anything.

    Any ideas how this happened?

    Maybe you new PC came with Bluetooth enabled. Do you use the same user name for all your devices?
