hi guys i like to know if it is possible to lock my email app in iPhones.

my phone is always taken by my family to be used (ie playing games on it). but i have the mail app which configured to my gmail and it worries me that other friend-family member might see my confidential email if they click on my mail app. so this is why i asked if there is a way to password protected the mail app in case they click on it the mail app will pop up a password first.

is this possible or not?

thanks

The user has two email accounts, which I'll call   xuser@gmail.com - personal,  and xothername@xcompany.com
The company account is hosted by Google.

Just a few days ago, for unknown reasons, all email from their personal account started being sent from the company account instead.

They called Apple, which tried a few things, and then said it was a Google problem.

I had them delete all their email accounts from their iPhone, power off the iPhone, and then set up their personal account on the iPhone again.  
They can receive email sent to their personal account, but sent email is still being sent from the company account.

I didn't yet have them "Reset All Settings" on the iPhone.

What might have caused this, and how might it be corrected?

Thanks.

Hi
We are not an iPad organisation and I have brought and iPad for the staff and this iPad belongs to the organisation.
I have created the apple ID for this staff with her official email address.

The staff may install her own paid apps on the iPad and if she installs the paid apps on the iPad using her card and when she leaves the organisation , I am wondering how she will be able to take the apps along with her.

I have created a iCloud account with her official email address and  when i set up the this new iPad .

Do i need to ask the staff to create her personal iCloud account and use this apple ID to purchase her paid apps?

Please suggest and the way is of setting up this iPad

Thanks and any help much appreciated.

Hi, I use my Apple Watch and iPhone to make Voice Memos, however I can't seem to find them anywhere on my Mac. I know they are synced with iCloud, etc... but there doesn't seem to be a Voice Memo app on the Mac?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

I've been toying with the idea of getting an Apple Watch for some time, and the main reason I haven't is because I like to collect and wear more traditional watches (non smart watches), and I don't think it looks right when people wear a luxury watch on one wrist and an Apple watch on the other... but each to their own :-)

Can I ask the people here who use an Apple Watch or another form of Smart Watch, what are the main benefits you find from day to day, over just looking at your phone?

Hi,

I normally use my Macbook Pro to do most of my work, however sometimes I use my iMac for tasks that require a big screen or when reviewing my teams work when they pop into my office.

So in short, my iMac gets very little use other than availing of it's large screen. It certainly doesn't do any heavy lifting.

That being said, everytime I go near it, it is extremely sluggish. My Macbook has less power and ram, etc... and it runs several more heavy applications in comparison to what is running on my iMac. I have checked in the performance monitor and it seems to be that i'm running 3 different browsers (which I need to), however my Macbook has no problem running the same 3 browsers.

iMac
- late 2015
- Retina 5k
- 3.2 Ghz
- 8 GB Ram
- updated regularly

I remember back in my older Windows days, I used to run a small script on Windows that cleared up the memory when my Windows machine felt sluggish.

01 - is there anything similar scripts for Mac?

02 - is it difficult to add more Ram to my iMac

Thanks in advance for your help, it's much appreciated.

HI, I'm trying to setup a VPN connection from a Mac to a TP-Link TL-ER620 using NCP Secure Point software.  I had previously flawlessly used PPTP, but the Mac's decided to stop allowing that.

I get a little stuck with the IPSec terms between the two, can someone help me out with a walk through on the client server side of the setup.

Thanks all.

I'm following this tutorial: https://medium.com/swift2go/building-grpc-client-ios-swift-note-taking-app-6133c7d74644
The problem is I can't understand what exactly is happening in the following code:

func listNotes(completion: @escaping([Note]?, CallResult?) -> Void) {
        _ = try? client.list(Empty(), completion: { (notes, result) in
            DispatchQueue.main.async {
                completion(notes?.notes, result)
            }
        })
   }

Open in new window


I need someone to explain me the above piece of code in detail.
Can anyone please help?

Say, on the android phone system there is a Google Maps application and this is obviously also available on the Apple phone. Does the Apple phone have any native solution for location sharing ? I'm looking for Live location Sharing with friends,, similar to what is available through the Google Maps App. Please advise detailed steps on how to activate such service on Apple phone. Thanks, Shaun

Unable to access Time Machine Backups after migration to internal drive.  We replace the internal drive on a Mac Pro and migrated the user account back to the computer after doing an install of OSX Mojave.  Everything is working fine.  We can go into Time Machine and can browse the backups but cannot restore its grayed out.  We go to the time machine drive and the backups folder and notice the users name is not listed on having rights to any of her user folders.  We try to add her but it will not add her name.  Is there some way via terminal or other to add as having full rights to the backup.  She can only view because the user everyone has read rights.

I can use quick help on this one to restore a file from some time ago,

Due to low internet bandwidth availability, we have a user that needs to connect from a home Mac to their Mac here at the office and control that via a VPN connection. I would like to get recommendations on simple Mac-Mac remote desktop control options and understand what others are using.

I have tried using VNC, but when testing internally (using vnc:"IP address") I am receiving an error "unable to resolve". All Mac's are OS-X , El Capitan or higher

Expert assistance would be appreciated

Resolutions attempted:
-empty individual mailbox caches
-rebuild profile
-reinstall Office
-create new user and migrate smtp addresses
-powershell enableoutlookformac, enableoutlook commands

Additional notes:
-Errors also appear when account is connected to an other Outlook for Mac 2016 client on a different computer running the same version of Mac OS.
