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.

This is legitimate purchase of a used iPod Touch with one of the later IOS versions.  Is there any way to unlock this phone from the Apple Server so that it can be correctly added and recognized by the server?  We are trying to contact the seller and previous owner but have not had success.  I have seen some web suggestions but they do not work.  Your ideas would be appreciated.

Unable to accept meeting invites as a delegate on ios device when using the native mail client. iOS 12.4.3 version.  testing has shown that running ios13.2.2 is even worse in that we are unable to view the invite at all, it says unavailable.


Manager has configured PA as a delegate within her Outlook 2013 client to send meeting requests to delegate only.  When the user receives these on an iOS device, the PA is able to view them but unable to take any action.  It displays a note that says "You are being notified of this event because you are a delegate of an invite" but is unable to accept the meeting in the same way that you can if the invite is sent directly to the PA - this works as expected.

Currently using exchange 2010 on-prem.

Is this a problem with the iOS or is there anything on exchange to allow this.

Hi All,

I have a new signature for our company and we have added it to our Outlook clients. The issue is that when we send email to or from another recipient we can see our signature but it shows up very small in the screens. Please see screenshot attached.

Can you please advise?
I've got a client that is using an iphone XR. We recently had to rebuild the server for them as it failed. Since then he's not getting any of his exchange calendar appointments on the ios calendar app. It seems to work fine in the outlook ios app but of course, he doesn't want to use it. Anyone have any guidance or experience with this problem? I've tried everything I could on the user side, deleted the account off the phone and readded it etc. We think it may have to do with the exchange activesync because when running the exchange connectivity analyzer it fails. This however doesn't really explain why it works fine with outlook app.
Problem: Using Outlook to move an existing mail item from an Outlook PST or IMAP folder into a different Outlook IMAP folder causes the IOS native email client (INEC) to display the ‘wrong’ date/time – that of ‘now’, rather than the time when the item was received or sent.

Whether or not relevant, such a move also changes the item’s ‘modified date’ as displayed in Outlook as follows: a) A move whilst Outlook online changes that date b) A move whilst Outlook offline does NOT change that date upon the move, but does change it to the time at which you subsequently go back online. (and that time is also what is seen in IOS)

Possibly the iCloud server is imposing today’s date/time as described by Nicolson (Search Nicolson “RFC 3501 section 6.3.11” re: Gmail.)

However, some items in IOS display a different date from what Outlook shows as ‘Modified’, it seems likely that IOS is not using whatever variable Outlook uses for ‘Modified Date’.

Moving an item between folders in the same Outlook PST does NOT change the item’s ‘modified date’ as seen in Outlook.

Moving in INEC or iCloud Web: Moving a message between folders within Icloud Web or INEC does NOT 13change the modified date/time shown in Outlook IMAP folder, or the date/time shown in Icloud Web or INEC.

Gmail Behavior: By comparison, using Outlook to move mail items into Gmail IMAP folders also causes the Outlook ‘modified’ time to change. But the INEC client (and the Gmail app) show the ‘correct’ timestamp – …

I built a website ( several years ago which uses iScroll 5.1.3 ( to handle various scroll effects. Once an iPhone is upgraded to iOS 13, scrolling on my site no longer works. If you try to scroll a page, the browser behaves as if there is no content to scroll to, and bounces you back to the top of the page (actually, it never really leaves the top of the page).

Obviously something changed in iOS 13 (or Safari) which is making the site not work correctly, and my assumption is that the problem lies with iScroll, because all other websites work fine. I am not too familiar with how iScroll works exactly, but its all JavaScript. So what could have changed with iOS 13 with regards to JavaScript compatibility?

I looked up some articles regarding iOS 13, and found a few snippets in one article ( related to scrolling:

Scrollbars are now draggable on iOS and iPadOS

One-finger accelerated scrolling now supported on every scrollable DOM element (iframes and elements with overflow: scroll) which makes the -webkit-overflow-scrolling style to promote momentum scrolling officially deprecated.

I'm not skilled enough to know what this means or why it would cause iScroll to no longer function. Is there any hope that iScroll can continue to function on this website, perhaps with some tweaking, or JavaScript …
hi am having this error when running simulator
We have a requirement from a client to have staff ALWAYS enter a password when connecting to their RDS environment. We have enabled this through GPO, and it works well for connections through RDP. However, when the user connects through the new HTML 5 RDweb client - the clients browser may ask to autofill the credentials. If it does, no password prompt. If the client connects in through an Android or iOS app, they save the password upon creating the connection - again no password prompt to connect. Mac client - same thing.

Is there a way that anyone knows to require a password EVERY TIME regardless of the connection client. Perhaps to ask again for a password once on the remote desktop server.

What would be the suggested methods to input data, via speech recognition, on a generic web page?

I have some web pages, that are not public to anyone, that our quality control department logs their measured data into.  This works great for functionality, when using a keyboard, but it is time consuming to type the data.

Is there a way for a computer, or a handheld device (IOS / Android) to automatically "listen" / all the time?

Is there a way to browse the web solely using speech commands on any piece of hardware?
Hi All

I'm currently developing an iOS app using the Contacts Framework to add contacts into a specific Group.

The code currently checks to see if the group exists, if it doesn't, it creates it and stores the Identifier into the UserDefaults store, if not it reads the identifier ready to save the contact later on.

let defaults = UserDefaults.standard
        var groupID = defaults.string(forKey: "contactsGroupID")
        let group = CNMutableGroup()
        var newGroupNeeded = Bool()
        if groupID?.isEmpty ?? true {
            let groupName = "my App Contact Group"
            let groupSave = CNSaveRequest()
            let newGroupNeeded = true
   = groupName
            groupSave.add(group, toContainerWithIdentifier: nil)

            do {
                try store.execute(groupSave)
               defaults.set(group.identifier, forKey: "contactsGroupID")
               defaults.set(groupName, forKey: "contactsGroupName")
                print("New Identifer saved: \(group.identifier)")
            } catch let error{
        else {
            let newGroupNeeded = false
            let groupName = defaults.object(forKey: "contactsGroupName")
            var predicate: NSPredicate? = nil
            if let object = [
                defaults.object(forKey: "contactsGroupID")
                ] as? [String] {
                predicate =

What app, beside Outlook can be used to via Exchange e-mail? A am thinking of the mail app,  on the iOS platform.
But I need to be manage the device via Microsoft InTune.
I am trying to workaround a challenge: manage two separate e-mails account with Microsoft InTune.
I am thinking the best way to go about this is to install the MDM profile manually, left for install from a URL.
I am looking for a way to add an identity to the "Visual Effect View With Blur" for IOS Swift.  I also want to add rounded corners to the Visual Effect View with Blur.  I dragged it onto my ViewController and I am not sure how to round the corners nor how to identify the Visual Effect with an identity.  The reason why I want this functionality is because I need to round the corners or add code to round the corners in Swift.
