The list of existing canonical questions is here: iCloud and Apple ID accounts in general (developer accounts have a section below) Forgotten iCloud email ID and password iTunes Store How can I change regions? Can someone help with sorting / merging questions about transferring iTunes store balances? How do you use an existing AppleID on iOS App Store ...

Meta hat? Quite possibly. Would be diabolical to make you self Ask anD self answer on meta and on main for a pixel overlay. I endorse the clear canonical question - especially if it helps get people a clear answer.

I disagree with creating a canonical question for this. With each one of those cases, whilst ‘restore from backup’ is a suitable answer, there are other answers which apply to specific cases. For example, adjusting Boot Camp partition from Windows has many answers beside restoring from a backup, but those answers wouldn't apply to the other cases. Canonical ...

YES Upvote this answer if you support the idea of creating a canonical flag on the main site to identify canonical questions.

Getting an illegal copy off a random person is not the best way. One should use the official links from Apple to obtain a copy, or there are alternative methods such as Internet Recovery. Any such questions can be marked as duplicate of the existing questions with viable questions.

My gut reaction is we should pick one of the new questions and update an answer and link to the old question since Apple clearly had a rash of this in late September where the daemon was triggered and other breakage happened. Not everyone needs to reset NVRAM, but for some that works. Not everyone fixes it with a reboot, some do. Most can now just patch and ...

Absolutely no. This proposal is literally opposing the purpose of tagging: categorising the content of questions. Tags should be about the question content, as defined in the first line of the relevant section of the help center. Meta-tags are also specifically mentioned as later on in the article. A tag is a word or phrase that describes the topic of ...

I guess the best thing to do is comment to the OP. Explain you'd like to make a substantial edit to make this a general question so we can point lots of people to this issue and get the best answers collected under this one post. They can say yes - now we have a willing participant in editing. The chance of an edit war or second thoughts is low. If they don'...

I think there are two edges to this sword: The minimum requirements are really that. Absolute minimum - I really like steering one question on the site to be just that. Apple authors first party tools to create iOS apps and they are Xcode. If your Mac runs Xcode - it can develop apps. Full stop. Opinions on what makes a reasonable minimum setup will vary. ...

I propose that links to the very good canonical questions (as sourced from the wiki answer on this question) should be added to the relevant tag wikis. For example, icloud or appleid could include a link to this question: Forgotten iCloud email ID and password I don't expect question askers to necessarily read each tag wiki and find their answers there. ...
