iOS is a mobile operating system developed by Apple; it is a derivative of the Mac OS X desktop operating system, with which it shares many (but not all) common frameworks and other components. These include Cocoa Touch, the Mach/Darwin/XNU kernel and code from the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD). Each iOS application runs in its own secure sandbox to prevent altering other applications, the operating system, or any other data.

For some reason, 2 important features of this landing page that I'm trying to wrap up aren't working on mobile:

1) My multi-step form is not displaying
2) My jQuery load() methods for the sections with the headings "Browse cameras. Then rent." and "Other equipment you might also need" are not working working.

I've been testing using Safari and Chrome using an iPhone X and both mobile browsers are having the same exavt problems.

I suspect that the problem is Javascript based, but I have no idea what's broken or incompatible.  How can I fix these 2 important features so that they both work on mobile?

Here is a link to my custom.js file:

We have 5 ipads used by some of our employees. I set them up with an apple id and logged them into the ipad. The problem is if I need to wipe the ipads there is an activation lock and I need their apple id to unlock. So my concern is that is they leave employment and I cannot get their apple ID password, the ipad is bricked?

I have tried to reset the password, but the phone number on their account is their cell phone, which I don't have access to.

1. Is there a way to wipe the ipad and remove the activation lock without their apple id? Will apple help since it's a corporate owned device? Do I need some type of MDM?

2. Should I be setting these up differently to prevent this issue?

Thank you.
Is there a mail app that can search the Internet with out leaving the app?

I want to be able to search the Internet similar to looking up an word via iOS dictionary.
I'm looking for a low to midrange tablet. It can be in used condition. It doesn't need to be high performance. It does need a screen that is easily 100% visible under bright outdoor conditions. Android or iOS, either way. I just need to be able to see a full color display outdoors in broad daylight. Any common screen size will work (it shouldn't be huge but it would be an added bonus if it weren't tiny).
How do you access an iOS device such as an iPhone OS from a Windows 10 device?

I need to be able to use all the iPhone functionality such from the Windows 10 operating system.
I've been looking for an iOS app that will allow a user to view multiple/shared calendars on our hosted exchange server.  I've been unsuccessful in finding a solution.
I know that Microsoft Office 365 Exchange Online allows users to view multiple calendars (shared calendars) on the Outlook app, but we are using AppRiver to host our exchange mailboxes and need another solution.

When I get outlook meetings via email or when I register to an event (*.ics), it get placed to a calendar not my own (I have my calendar and icloud calendar).  I want to always have them place in iCloud calendar; how can do this?
I have an iPhone with Outlook app that wont sync all the folders within an Office365 account to the device.  I have checked the sync settings and they are all supposed to sync 1 month of mail (all folders have recent mail in them), but only some folders actually sync.  I have already reinstalled the Outlook App and reset the account, but it still inst pulling down the folders.

Background.  The device was working perfectly with all folders synced properly until the end user opened an excel file that "crashed the phone".  He ended up uninstalling the Outlook app to fix it.  Now that it is set back up (reinstalled a couple times) he cannot see his other folders that were there before.

iPhone7 with iOS 12.2

Any ideas what to try next?
Hello - I am having trouble syncing my Mac photo albums with my iPhone 8. It was syncing a few weeks ago, but now appears to have stopped syncing updates to my photo albums and photo library from Mac to iPhone. The calendar still syncs, but photos do not. I have no idea why this could be. I have everything turned on (i.e. Photo Stream and iCloud Photos) on both my Mac and iPhone. Both area also completely up to date. The Mac just suddenly stopped syncing my photo album updates with my iPhone. Do you have ANY idea whatsoever why this might be? Help!
i) Many of you know that I am working on getting my phone game IDE setup working. I have my first potentially very good ideas to play with/test.
I received excellent advice to make the game in Java first to know exactly what I'm trying to do, so I'm ready. It's working in a Javax JFrame. (thanks a lot - got my mind right)
I have been studying Javascript, some iOS, a look at some c# pages, Xcode pages..

ii) I am not getting it done as quickly as I hoped..I have so many questions every minute, u know how it goes..
Do you think it could be a plan to ask a Freelancer to completely help set me up, maybe over the phone? Ability to make games on any, every device, browser? I prefer back and forth banter, not sporadic articles. too much waiting. I need some first downs.
How many languages, SDK's and devices are there to accommodate me in this situation, have to learn? What did the or dudes do? Javascript!? How did they cover everything, all devices!? iPhones need special features. What else?  J2ME is a bust, so I need a new angle. The dudes made an iPhone app! Also Android App? Windows phone?

iii) I have access to one of Godaddy's private professional servers. - got major repeat customer credits for an appealing price for 10 years in. I hope it will serve the potential max players well. non VPN (can be clogged) Can I expect this to serve my players as well as and  do?

Freelancer a plan?
I am looking for an app that would virtulize iOS, on a iPad, or iPhone. It needs to be able to function like the host system.
How can I virtualization and app for iOS, inside another app?
IOS app targeting profile view for iPhones only. I have some background images.   xxx@2x.png  is ~ 333kb, xxx@3x.png is ~ 1.2mb. When I realized the size of the 3x, I loaded the 2x version into both the 2x and 3x slots in my assets. I run the app on a 5s phone and a Xs Max simulator. I see no difference using the original big 3x image vs the smaller one.

These background images are simple illustrations, not a great deal of detail.

Please help me understand this and is it okay to just run the smaller file in both slots?
I have a fiend who wants to copy music files from a PC to an iPhone? I downloaded a free program called AnyTrans but it didn't work.
     Also, the music on his PC is neatly categorized into folders, which are further categorized into sub-folders, etc. Even if AnyTrans had worked, we would have had to select the music from each individual folder (very tedious) and then dump them all into one big folder on the iPhone (when we tested AnyTrans we only copied about a dozen music files from one of the folders).
     This may be asking for too much, but is it possible to not only copy the music but to do it with them all still in their respective folders?

my iPhone is running very low with just 400 MB disk space left according to the Windows Explorer.

I'm running Windows 10 with iPhone XS max latest iOS 12.2, I cannot copy or cut (move) files from the Windows Explorer even though I can browse and select them, only few can be copied, but not all of the files I selected can be copied successfully.

I have about 33 GB files that I need to migrate from the device, but I can't even by selecting date by date.

See the below error:
Windows Explorer issue
How can I move those files to free up some disk space in my iPhone easily?

Thank you in advance.

We are a school and I have created a single School iCloud account. I have added all the 4 iPads into the school iCloud account.
Using the school iCloud account, I have installed the default apps and updates on all the 4 iPads.

I will be issuing these iPads to the staffs and will they be able to use their own personal iCloud account and install their own apps on the school iPad?

We are a windows-based network and the iPads are only for the senior management and we will not go more than 8 iPads.

Any help and sugessions will be great
Thanks in advance.
I need some help understanding swift/xcode positioning of elements. I've done several tutorials and built some apps but I really don't get it. I know my way around the xcode IDE, for instance the pin tool for creating constraints.

If I have 3 buttons on the left side of a view, one 15% from the top, one in the middle, and one 15% from the bottom. For the sake of discussion, I'll use my top edge on the top one and bottom edge on the bottom button.

How do I maintain this across different phone sizes? In this case portrait only. I can pin the top and bottom and then pin the center button to it's upper and lower neighbors but that fixes them in place. And they would be different percentages of distance apart on different size phones.

What am I missing?

Thank you!
I need to extend the time before my iPhone requires a password.

Client has Office 365 E3. Has a handful of users. They have a Shared Mailbox where they all access and use the Calendar.

Now, they need to be able to access that Shared Mailbox Calendar on iOS. I'm aware that MS does not want people to do this but there is a workaround:
  1. Add Account
  2. Other
  3. Add Mail Account
  4. Name: Name of shared mailbox
  5. Email: email address of shared mailbox
  6. Password: of user who has full access to shared mailbox
  7. Description: Name of the shared mailbox
  8. NEXT
  9. IMAP
  10. Incoming Mail Server:
  11. Username: (your_primary_account)@domain\enter_the_name_of_the_shared_mailbox
  12. Password: of user who has full access to shared mailbox
  13. Outgoing Mail Server
  14. SMTP:
  15. Username: email address of the person who has full access to the shared mailbox
  16. Password: of user who has full access to shared mailbox
I can confirm this works fine as I have just added a Shared Mailbox from my own Tenant onto my iPhone.

However, once the account is Verified the only mailbox items I can sync are:
  • Mail
  • Notes
No Calendar :-(

Besides converting the Shared Mailbox to a full mailbox, is there any other way?

I have tried to delete the backup in my icloud and haven been able to do it.  I went to iPhone settings icloud and tried to delete to have "Cannot delete backup... cannot be deleted at this time".  I also tried by using iCloud apps and same message.  Can someone tell me how to delete backup file sin iCloud no longer needed?

I am trying to clean up my contacts in IOS 12.x

So my initial step was to reset the iPhone to factory defaults, keeping icloud off completely. So absolutely no contacts on the pjhone at all.

Then I cleaned up my personal contacts in Outlook to just what I want. Then I deleted my autocomplete file in my profiles roamcahce directory. No suggestions are put forward when I type a letter in a new email. So far so good.

So now I set up my Exchange account which went OK. When I start to type an email address on my iPhone it shows literally hundreds of old emails addresses which I was trying to delete. Looking at the contacs app under contacs there are just my Outlook contacs, good, but there is another group called suggested contacts which contains all these mails. Even if I deselect this group and just have contacts ticked , when I start typing an address it shows everything.

Where is this junk stored in Outlook? It is not the autocomplete file as I deleted that. It must be outlook as I did an iPhone fiull erase and reset, set up as a new phone and made sure nothing Icloud was enabled. To be sure I user my laptop to log into icloud to check what contacts I had there and there were only 4.

Any ideas please?

Can someone help me with a sample code to Autoplay a HTML video on IOS. I have a video that used to autoplay in IOS but not anymore, also how would I autoplay and start the video from a different position

i.e 40 seconds before the end.
This weekend we renewed our certificate in Exchange using our CA. Everything installed normally and Exchange ECP shows the renewed certificate as Valid. After testing Outlook, OWA and email on my android phone, I saw that everything was pulling the new certificate and mail was flowing on the devices normally.

The next day we started getting calls from iOS users stating they cannot access email on their iPhones or iPads. They are getting an error that says, "Cannot Verify Server Identity: The identity of "" cannot be verified by Mail." I jumped on the server to double check "autodiscover" is visible on the new certificate and it is. The new cert is an exact replica of the previous cert, which had worked fine.

Anybody have any thoughts on how to fix this for iOS users? People using the Outlook App on Apple devices are able to access email fine. It's only people using the built-in Mail app provided by Apple.

Troubleshooting I've tried:
Rebooting the Exchange server to reset IIS and other services
Restarting Apple device
Removing and re-adding Exchange account from Apple device
Temporarily turning off SSL on Apple device
Tested adding Exchange account to an Apple device that has never touched our Exchange server

Thank you for the help!

We are a school and we started buying iPads for the staff. I have created a school iCloud account.  

Please let me know if there will be a way of adding new iPad to the school cloud account and once the iPad is given to staff they must be able to install apps by their own.

But when they leave the organisation , they should return the iPad , but able to carry the paid apps and install on their iPads they wish.

Please let me know a best way of setting up this.

Any help will be great and thanks in advance.
