Exchange/Outlook Calendar being adjusted through Android/iOS, not sending request to other meeting attendees

I am assisting a user who works from out of the office and regularly adjusts his scheduled meetings with his Android Phone or iPad.  While this adjustment shows in his Outlook/Exchange calendar, it does not update on invited/confirmed meeting attendees Outlook/Exchange Calendars.
When he changes from within Outlook, it sends a new meeting (change) request as it should.

Is there a way to have meeting change messages be sent when calendars are adjusted with mobile devices' calendar apps?

This site is running Exchange 2010 and the user is running Office 2010.

I am pretty sure this is a limitation of ActiveSync, but the general consensus is to tell end users don't adjust calendar entries on iOS.

The calendar sync is very buggy on the iOS implementation of ActiveSync and can cause complete chaos within meetings. I have seen a single Apple device generate 1000s of meeting requests, with the associated logs and then crash the server.
