    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if some of you were able to use iCloud Keychain on your iPhone or iPad. Every time I try to set it up, I can't finish the process because I don't receive the SMS containing the code required to complete the set up. Now, every few days, I get a notification telling me to complete the process even if I can't.

    Thanks!

    Yes.

    Setup in a previous beta, been awhile.

    Used once. Removed due to reports of excessive batt drain

    I can't setup my iCloud Keychain either. I never receive the SMS with the code so I can activate Keychain.

    And you did get Apple's SMS for verification? I'm on Rogers with an iPad 4th gen (LTE) and my iPhone 5 and never got any SMS from Apple.

    Try again. I just went and flipped it on. It asked to restore with my pass code and then said it would text me. Moments later I got my code. keychain is now enabled.

    DON'T ENABLE KEYCHAIN!! Believe me, it drains battery really fast, your iphone will be used every second. If you have... let's say... 4 hours of standby, the usage time will be the same.

    i had the same worries about keychain draining. however, when i loaded ios7 beta 6, i sucked it up and gave it a try. once activated, i see no difference in battery drain then i did with it disabled. i used to be a battery nut, but im slowly enabling feature i didnt use before (keychain and safari icloud sync) and actually turned my battery meter off. i find myself actually using the phone more and for its intended purposes instead or worrying about drain. beta 6 is actually better than any other in regards to battery drain for me.

    Not true ... Yours is probably stuck due to bad data ... Should do a clean install ... I have enabled since b1 and no issues

    Sounds like a hefty overreaction there. It's a beta. Sounds like you shouldn't be using it and are now unfairly judging the OS.

    iCloud Keychain is working fine for me, and definitely no significant battery drain. My battery life is doing quite well actually.

    FWIW, I've had mine activated after I did a clean install of beta 3 and I've seen no battery drain.. YMMV if you're using a backup.

    Point is, you don't seem prepared to handle bugs, therefore, you probably shouldn't be running a BETA.

    NO NO, I can handle the bugs, what I am saying is that I can't handle the lagness and the chopness therefore Apple should not force iphone 4 users to upgrade to ios 7 and by 'force" I mean to automatically download the OTA on iphone while on wifi with no permission from the user.

    Um..You have to manually update to a new version of iOS. It doesn't force you to, and it doesn't download automatically. Why do you think there are a lot of users wanting to know if they can get rid of the little red "1" that sits on top of settings when a new iOS version is available? There are tons of users still on iOS 5 that never updated to 6.

    Also, it's still a beta, the lagging and chopiness is part of the beta process, which you cleary don't understand..

    I don't know where you're getting your information. :rolleyes:

    Am I missing something?

    How in the heck does a password saving system kill battery? I know passbook did cause it enabled location services continuously. But what the heck am I missing?

    My Telus iPhone 5 did. Not sure about my fiance's on Rogers, but it must have, since hers is active.

    It's a fact, it happened to me while on 5.1.1 I turned on wifi and the ios 6.1.3 started downloading, I had to jailbreak and disable OTA daemons to stop it but the download was still there unfinished. Now on 5.0.1, non-jailbroken, I had to install a ton of apps so that I only have 2.7 gb free or less because downloading ios 6.1.3 ota requires at least 2.8 gb free on an iphone.

    If that was the case, Apple wouldn't bother showing the graph of how many people have updated to the newest iOS

    That's why they show it, and that's why they do it, force you to update, if they wouldn't do that than the stats would be a lot different.

    I just remembered something... I have sms shortcodes blocked on my phone. Could that be why I'm not getting a sms from apple with the verification code to activate iCloud Keychain?

    No, they show it to show that iOS users want to run the latest software.

    Again, they don't force the update. I personally know people with the iPhone 4S still running iOS 5. If they forced the update by force downloading it and installing it on devices, all of them would be on 6.1.3.
