Issue: How to fix AddressBookSourceSync?
Hello. AddressBookSourceSync error appears in the middle of my screen constantly. It even leads to the process when pop-up after pop-up go one after the other when there are at least 4 layered on top of each other. It asks to enter my password and log in. It wants me to approve iCloud usage, I also find it running in the background that slowdowns the device significantly. It is annoying and I don't know what to do. Help!
