IPhones and IPads not connected to Exchange 2013

Hello All -

Fresh install of Windows 2013 within Exchange 2013 SP 1 w/ 3rd party SAN certs applied.  We created the Autodiscovery both externally and internally and Windows phones and Outlook 2013 clients have no issues Automatically discovering and configuring the Outlook client.

However,  Apple OS devices cannot connect even if we manually try to configure them - We tried both the native Exchange client as well as the Outlook 2013 client available within the Appstore with no luck.  

Any ideas on what we should be looking at would be greatly appreciated!  - Zoo

If this happen to all user? Does the mailbox's activesync feature enable?
Could you run test connectivity to verify the activesync.

Did you create an 'A' record for Autodiscover?
The SRV record mechanism does not still support iPhones and android phones. The A record should point to the client access server. Also, if you have a load balancer in front of CAS, please check the Load balancer documentation and make sure it is configured appropriately for ActiveSync.
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Hi tomjacobchirayil -

An A record was created.  This customer does not have a load balance and this is a single on premise installation.

Any other ideas?

I suspect you created the record with the ISP to match the autodiscover.domain.com.

This was ok, but accordingly to your message/question, it looks like the virtual directory is getting redirected to an http instead of staying on https.

Check your IIS for redirections on the virtual directory and while you are at it make sure you have the right authentication selected.

Hmm...Based on the IIS comment I just noticed I did not have a external FQDN defined for autodiscover.  Rookie mistake - need to check if this corrected the issue.
