It's wonderful to see everybody doing the right thing. ;)

:: Justin stands on soapbox::  

As a Combat Veteran, I'm disgusted by all white supremacist groups and the thought that they think they represent any values or ideals of the United States. I'm sure my military brethren (sisters, brothers, and transgenders) would give me a virtual high five when I say the US Army's official motto, "This We'll Defend" is a feeling that runs through all of our hearts and minds. We believe that this nation is for everyone who wants to come and be a part of it. Simply put, it's our job as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen, to defend them with our lives.

Oh, on the "race" element, according to science, Mitochondrial DNA, and I would say common sense, we are all one race (Human Race) and that the pigment of our skin is superficial. Race is a social invention, not a biological truth.

Who says?

Oh, only a prestigious and reputable school like: MIT and a preeminent evolutionary biologist Joseph L. Graves Jr.. Here is a conversation the NY Times had with him: Link.

Even if there were different races, why would I not call you my brother or sister? We are all experiencing the Human Condition together and should bond with, and defend each other as family.

I leave you with a quote from the fictitious, but ever so right, Jean-Luc Picard, "No being is so important that he can usurp the rights of another."

Thank you, Justin. It strengthens my, and hopefully others, resolve to read such words. I too have often look to Captains Picard and Kirk in times like these to bring hope, but in this case there are words from a patriot of old that may serve as a greater compass:

The world is my country,
all mankind are my brethren, and
to do good is my religion.
- Thomas Paine

I am trying to help one of my friends. He made a backup from his old iPhone using ITunes. Then when he bought his new I phone 7 the tried to restore the data from the backup but it received an error saying "backup is corrupted ".

Any idea what to do at this point ?  is there any tool that can fix the corrupted backup.  The old phone is gone i can't not create another backup. The only available backup we have is the one that says corrupted.

Thank you,

How can a user's contacts contained on an iPhone be backed up?

This user doesn't want to use iTunes for the backup so what other options can be used?

I'm currently looking at building a small basic app that a few of my customers are looking for, however they all want it as their own unique app so I will need to whitelabel each release from one core set of code, instead of managing several different sets of code / apps.

All companies will have the exact same app features (which are very basic), however I will need to change the 'logo', 'app name' and 'main UI color' for each release.

Swift / iOS and Android Studio seem to have their own 'Whitelabel Management' feature so that you can have one code base and release variable releases from the code base.

So, you build one core app, and then you can release different builds with the variable settings.

01 - Has anyone ever used this approach before, and if so do you have any advice?
02 - Is anyone aware of any software (outside of Swift and Android Studio) that will manage code like this, as I might go the Hybrid approach with React Native.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Apple lovers, September is around the corner.  Are you excited to see what Apple's been working on the last few months!?

I'm eagerly awaiting news on the latest iPhone.  The iOS 11 features coming out look promising too.

Yeah, Apple Pay is pretty great. When I find a business that supports it, I've started going there more. It's even more convenient when you can use a smartwatch—you don't even need to reach into your pocket!

Ugh, they've made it so easy for us xD

I have a user with iPhone 5E and iOS version 10.2.1.

I am trying to add an email (Exchange 2007) to her iphone but it keeps showing certificate not trusted. I have tested the same email account on another iphone with same iOS version but different model and it works okay. I have deleted the account and re-added it but no success.

When adding an account on her phone, it says "cannot verify server identity" but error is caused by the certificate not trusted error.

Please see the attached. There isn't even a menu Trust at the top.
How can we sync Tasks/Reminders time entered when creating an entry either in the computer  (via or the  iPhone (v7 plus IOS  10.3.3).  The problem I am having when creating a task in the iPhone for 1am and when checking the computer it says 2am.  If we  create the task in the computer for 1am the iphone is register as 12am.  We are assuming its a Region issue - if we check the computer, it says Time Zone 'UTC-06:00) Central America' and  the iPhone only is "Set Automatically".  What we need is that whether a task/reminder is created, it should have the same date/time in both devices.
Is there a tracking app so another user can tell location of IPhone?

I have the situation where my 3 Mac computer all sync text shortcuts perfectly. My iPhone can receives text replacements made on my Macs, but if I create one on my iPhone, the other devices don't get it.  It's like the other devices have a 2-way street between them, but my iPhone has a one way ( incoming ) street only.
For some strange reason a task that was super simple, just some clicks and done, has become a headache: incomplete iCloud restore.

We have backed up our iPhone 7 Plus (latest iOS) via the cloud, not iTunes.  Then opened up a new iPhone and did a iCloud restore.  

When done, missing apps like whatapps, Viber, etc. and most important, all the emails are missing.  The strangest thing is that the usual iCloud restore we do, we see the apps being download and the emails "number" increasing; hence a proper restored from iCloud.

Please advice what may be going on and how to fix.

I want to map FROM the windows 10 to the mac how can i do this ?

Good afternoon; have noticed something that's affecting multiple iPhones in our organization. As noted we're a Exchange 365 shop and are using iOS devices with the latest OS; our clients all use the Mail app for their company Exchange mail.

The issue is this: sometimes when a user types in a name of a company employee, and that employee is not in their contacts, or in their 'recent addresses' cache, the iPhone will locate and display the entry from the global address list in a few moments. Other times, with other names, it never returns a hit from the global address list. So some names work, some don't.

To make it more confusing, if you type in a name it doesn't return a hit on, and after a moment, hit the backspace key twice (to shorten the last name) it then instantly finds the entry in the GAL.

My suspicion is that shorter names are found very quickly and partial last names also return hits faster than a full name; I noticed that if the full last name is short, it also seems to return an answer faster.

Curious to hear if others experience this and if it's consistent for you, and also for any insight.
I am new to Xamarin, C# and SQLite. I found a article
Basically I can get the Android code to work properly but I can't get the IOS code to work.
The emulator starts on the mac but then I get the error that you see in the attached file. I understand that it is due to something not getting passed but don't understand what that is.

Any help would be greatly appreciated so that I can move forward with this project.

Thanks in advance
So my phone stopped working the other day, it just kept booting up to the apple logo and then rebooting. now I have it in recovery mode (itunes logo appears) and it won't do anything with itunes. I keep getting random errors (originally it was 2001, but the more I mess with it, it get 21, 4015, 2025, really random errors) I feel that this has to do with me being a beta tester and it derped since my phone is the last supported one. So I have a question: since it is completely gone: is there anyway, in other expertise, to downgrade it to an iOS 9 and redo it from there? OR I have alway fantasized putting linux on an iPhone. I've looked up youtube tutorials, and it's all VMWare, or Teamviewer, or VNC. I want to completely wipe it and put a Linux Flavour on it. what ya'll think?
Is there a way to capture a web page on an iOS device  so that any links on the webpage remain live.

What I’m doing right now is hitting the share button, selecting print,  selecting the printer,  and then reverse pinching, then hitting the share button again and saying open in PDFpen Pro which then stores it in iCloud. I WOULD REALLY LOVE A WAY TO AUTOMATE THAT PROCESS.

 I am able to get the webpage but the links are no longer live.  The files get stored in iCloud and then on a weekly basis I drag-and-drop them to be ORCd and filed.

Do you know of an app that will capture the page as a PDF that will keep the Links live.

I am looking at DevonThink to go but it seems overly complicated and difficult to search. Not sure where it stores the database but it does allow you to save as a WebArchive
How do you store documents in the cloud and yet make them encrypted such that everybody can get to them,  iOS, Mac, Windows PC, Browser Window.

While using the built in keyboard on my iPad 2 certain keys (such as the "O" key don't respond when I press the button.

My iPad was already doing this while it was running iOS v. 7 and continues to do it after being upgraded to the latest iOS version 9 and continues to do this after I have thoroughly cleaned the screen. I have rebooted the iPad and have shut it down and turned it back on several times.

What else can be done to fix this?

I need to import the following fields from my .csv file into my iPhone 6s contacts:
First Name, Last Name, Company, Notes, Email, cell phone, phone, city, province (state)

I've googled this and it seems possible using the following steps:
.csv --> Google Contacts --> vcard --> iphone   or
.csv --> Outlook --> iTunes --> iphone

In either case, I'd love a detailed procedure.

Anybody who's actually done this before?

Having an issue with Outlook on IOS devices (iMac, iPhone and iPad) prompting for passwords.  Latest OS and Outlook updates installed.  Appriver hosted exchange account.

When accessing the account on one device it logs the others out.  If the person is in Outlook on their iMac then goes to their iPhone the iPhone asks for a password and after putting it in it will work.  But upon going back to the iMac it will ask for a password.  It does this across all three devices.

It seems to have started doing this after a password change.  We have deleted all keychain references, removed the account and recreated it and of course rebooted everything.  We even tried changing the password back to the original to see if it made a difference and it didn't.

Thanks for your assistance.
I have a web app which takes data from a form submission POST and calls some php, passing the data to it.
Once the php call is completed successfully, the page redirects to a thank you page.

I've placed a gif in a DIV on the page and set it to hidden and written two simple javascripts to unhide the gif when the form is submitted and rehide it when the page loads. This works perfectly on PC based browesers, but does not work on any browser app installed on an Iphone or IPad.

Is it possible to get this working on IOS without having to re-invent the bicycle? Thanks
