Having said that, the shagged cable you showed in the picture looks like a third-party cable.



No it's Apple Crumbs it's the charger/cable that comes boxed with iPad,it maybe where I have it plugged in,my fault I think as it's plugged in the wall near sofa and just about reaches my iPad,I think it's got stretched..

I think the answer is no but is there any way an iPad 6 be used to 'tether' a PC without a wireless card to the home router ?
I have a tower in the garden shed and would like to check it without bringing it indoors since it is full of spiders.

The Apple blurb mentions 'personal hotspots and cellular' but there is nothing within the menu of the touch, even with Bluetooth on

Thanks, it will be the long Ethernet cable since the iPod 6 has no SIM card slot.

I had hoped that with the ability for the touch to have access to the router through wifi, this might be transferable via the cable to the USB port of the PC, similar to those newer storage sticks with wifi capability.

Thanks for checking though

If apple chargers are shit and go to pieces it doesnt fill me with confidence for the hardware. My daughters have both had ipods and the chargers ended up like dolls. Ive got sony chargers that are 7 years old and work perfectly. Gotta say my android lg has fucked up lately and wont connect to any wifi, even without security, despite a factory reset.

Slaves to tech :shrug:

Crumbs you orifice oracle of all things anal.Apple,

The office iPad has come up with the welcome / hello screen and is asking for the original apple id for when I first registered it online for no reason.

It was fine yesterday and I havent prompted it to do this, nor carried out any reset/update since a month or two ago. Firmware is latest for the iPas 2 at 9.35 or thereabouts.

Why ?

I haven't bought anything online with Apple, the iPad 2 is no longer supported which is why the 9.3.5 is the last update which occurred late last year from memory.

I didn't want to enter the account details prompted by the iPad 2 just in case it had been compromised before asking around and surfing todays news for any breach of Apple security. I have found that since returning home from nightshift the iPod 6 Touch is working without fault, and the two devices are tied to the same account.

If you think it's OK to enter the detail into the following page from the welcome detail I will do so in an hour or so since it does recognise the home wifi and locks onto it by default.

Just upgraded all of our iOS devices and it's a fair old update, taking 15-20 minutes.

In the years that I've been running iOS and MacOS, I've not had a single malware incident. And neither has anyone I know personally. Windoze on the other hand... :D


I can count on one hand the times I've had a malware incident with Windows over the last 20 years

crumbs wrote:No, the battery is sealed. Tell her to put it on charge for 24 hours. Battery is probably fucked. How old is the iPhone?

She should try charging it for 23 hours WITHOUT trying to switch it on. The phone will indicate that it is charging.


She tried recharging and there is no indication that it's charging,wevboth have same package with Virgin.

2 yr contract which includes phone minutes etc..don't think two years is up.

Checked 2years is up Jan2018
