This is especially true when you try to connect a newer iPhone model to an older Mac or PC. Updating both your iOS and iTunes could fix the problem. If there is one, you should make sure that your iPhone is disconnected before installing the update.
Restart the Mac and then restart the computer. If you are running iOS 9, please note that the device will only sync with iTunes v If you are already signed in, please make sure that it is with the correct account. Sign in with your Apple ID when requested and the problem should be fixed. In this case, all you have to do is disconnect the iPhone to the computer and reconnect again to see if the popup request shows up again. Step 1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone and tap on General.
Step 2. Step 3. If all else fails, you may need to consider reinstalling iTunes. But you need to first of all remove the old version from the Mac. Click on the padlock icon at the bottom right corner and enter your admin password when prompted. Step 4. You will now be able to simply drag iTunes from the Applications folder to the trash to uninstall it. We tested 5G speeds in 13 cities.
Here's what we found : Faster speed versus more coverage. That's the most important issue for 5G networks today.
In order for Screens to be able to connect back to your Mac, it needs to be configured for remote access. March 9, at am. October 16, at am. We're committed to dealing with such abuse according to the laws in your country of residence. Any other feedback?

Don't show this again. It may be possible to fix this by selectively removing only the iCloud key from the keychain. I would strongly suggest doing that before attempting the following.
Note: The following workaround will remove all your locally saved passwords. You will have to enter all your passwords manually again. Do not do this if you have some valuable passwords stored locally that you rely on! Restart 4. I followed your instructions to clear keychain folder under local Library. Then restart my Mac. I think it was syncing all my iCloud information. Fortunately, I had my keychain on iCloud, and it seems that all my website login information back live. By the way, my OS is Catalina When I migrated my account information from Time Machine, I encountered unknown error issue.
It took me several days to get the issue resolved. Thank you! All to little avail. It seems there are potentially multiple problems that manifest this same error, so there's not much of a one-size fits all, except perhaps the combo I stumbled upon…. Seemed like it would always get stuck trying to sign out of "Find my mac".
That made it able for me to successful log out of iCloud. But then nothing would log back in, as I then got the "verification failed there was a problem connecting to the server" error. I could login to iCloud and all was right with the world well, with my Mac anyway.
Note: when one resets NVRAM first step above it will "disable" any Find My Mac setting unless you have a firmware password , so be sure to turn this back on once you reestablish your iCloud login, etc. Worked for me.
Jul 1, As of July 1, , Back to My Mac service is no longer available. You can use these alternatives for file access, screen sharing, and remote. Aug 21, In place of Back to My Mac, Apple recommends iCloud Drive, screen been updated since February which doesn't breathe confidence.
I was then able to login to the iCloud on my Mac. Photos taken on my iPhone are now updating on my computer. It affects everything on my Mac including the App Store. If someone has a Gmail account, why is iCloud naming that as the problem? Removing documents from folder, signing out of iCloud, plus a reboot worked for me!
Thanks for the help! Be sure to follow all the directions and close all apps that use iCloud like Mail, Messages, etc before restarting. Well latest news. I was on MacOS Sierra, A friend of mine who is a BigAppleFanBoy, was convinced that after trying everything else that upgrading the OS would fix it. So I have given up. Samo Samo this morning.
That is what has happened to me, three days in a row, after the Sign Out of ICloud thing appeared to work, each time I give up. Man, I was struggling with this all day. Not only was iCloud breaking on me, but all my connected internet accounts Google, Facebook, etc. Fantastical, Messages, Calendar, Reminders, everything was broken. Probably will tomorrow morning for whatever reason Maybe cause I use CCleaner each evening before shutting down, but have all along and never has been an issue, until just a few days ago.
All these solutions are a bunch of bolony, IMO. I did the Sign out three days in a row.
I wish the geniuses at Apple would erase iCloud and invent a system that actually works. Worked like a charm. This looks promising. I am in my primary profile which has the subject problem. If I do your steps above, do I stand to lose one or the other keychain? Also if you are that concerned about calendar appointments you should have backed up first. I can sign in to icloud fine on my iphone and apad and at icloud. I have deleted icloud plists several times, changed password several times, turned off 2 step verification, booted in safe mode and tried to sign out and in again, but nothing works.
Hi All, I was having same issue and i noticed my date and time was not up to date.. Thanks a lot.
Hi all, I discovered the same problem yesterday and none of the above tips helped. After restarting, the error came once more, but then all mail-accounts, calendar entries, reminders etc. I also could re-type my passwort for the icloud account and everything is working now! I am so happy, I thought I have to re-install my whole laptop… Hope that helps someone having the same problems.
Best, Jule. How do you clean up the logs. I constantly have to reconnect and re-set up iMessage across my devices. It used to only happen when I updated os and iOS. Now I get the error message multiple times a day and have to re-set up connectivity between devices. Very frustrating.
