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.

Is there a way of using an iPhone X GPS map to mark a location I have parked and will be returning to later?

I visit a lot of cities and places I have never been to before where I park quite I ways from the places I visit and will later need to return to when I'm done to get my car.

How can this be done?

When I try to Deploy/Run F9 my FireMonkey mobile app from a Win10.1x32 machine to an Ipad 4 mini, I get the following error:

paclient exited with code 1

When I change the build target to Android, everything works fine. I used Delphi Berlin and XCode 9.2 and it's my first iOS app.

Can anybody give me an advise?
Hi, I baught an iPhone 7 through a family plan at atnt and I am not the account owner of the atnt account (just a "family member"), so I have no real control over the account that I am a part of. I am not tech savvy at all only what Ive learned on my own through the years. And this is my first Apple device. So when I first tried to set up my apple account on day of purchace I was not successful, and it took over a week for me to get my phone set up with apple account. Now a year later Ive had this device now, Ive had several privacy problems with this device, and learned that (I believe) I was added to the family plan as a minor. I am 57 yrs old. This friend whos plan I joined due to my present financial difficulties has 2 sons that are advanced in the field of technology, and the oldest having several degrees in technology, can write code, has been emlpoyed as an IT for a financial company, is very much "in the know " about tech, and who is the admin of the home wireless network (wireless) that I often connect to . Now I do alot of research on the internet and have tried to learn as much as possible about protecting my privacy as possible, especially under these circumstances, but I have found ( without a doubt ) that Ive been being served up false web pages/sites on my device, especially on this topic but also on many others also. I am not sure if what they are doing in order to "gaslight" me is even legal but regardless Im at the end of my rope with all of this and just …
Here's the use case:

iOS 11 on iPhone form factor
Mobile Safari
WebRTC (web not native, they are different somehow)


- WebRTC video is blank and no audio
- Does not ask for permission to use the camera or audio
- Used to work in an early iOS 11 developer beta
- Same code works on iOS tablets and MacOS desktop Safari

Seems to be broken in iOS on a phone form factor only (iPhone/iPod Touch).


What could be different?
Two users experienced this issue over the weekend.
One was a meeting from a few months ago.
The other from several years ago.

In both cases, the users were not in the office and were
accessing their emails from their iOS devices.

I found some info online showing this may be the issue.

In fact, this fits their issue - they are either
a) attendees to their own meeting
b) delegate to an attendee in the meeting

I brought this up to both of them and they deny taking any action on their iOS device.

Is there any logs I can review which will show if this is true?
Logs that will show:
a) device accessing email
b) action taken on specific emails
c) Other useful information?

I can see the timestamps of the sent meeting reminders in the Exchange message tracker but that's not much use becuase it doesn't show what sent the email or what triggered it.
How do I inspect on safari with my iOS iPad without using a Mac.
This works perfectly on a Win desktop but I need this to work on IOS and Android devices.  This is an ASP.Net MVC Razor JQuery environment.

$(function () {
            $('#dt_LiveCoinWallets tbody tr td:first-child').click(function (e) {
                var el = $(this).next().find('input')[0];
                alert("Copied " + el.value);


Open in new window

<table id="dt_LiveCoinWallets" class="table table-striped table-bordered table-hover table-condensed">
                                    <th title="Click to select column">
                                        <h3>Your Wallet Address</h3>
                            @foreach (var item in Model)
                                        <Font color="blue">
                                            @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.Currency)
                                        @{ string s = item.Wallet + memo; }

We have a big challenge activating an app to our hundreds of corporate iPhones & iPads:
our MTP vendor Lookout said the users need to manually tap on the app that we push
down by MDM MobileIron.

Users simply ignore or can't follow email instructions to tap so I'll need to explore a way
that we can auto-activate the Lookout app or push down an already activated app :
is this possible?  Just like SCCM could auto-push down patches to Windows.

If it can't be auto-activated the moment it's being deployed/pushed down, is this a
limitation of IOS, MDM or the Lookout app?

The ipa is integrated with our MobileIron.  The Lookout app  (& icon) is pre-licensed,
not the copy from Appstore which will require users to enter the license/serial key.
I setup a Barracuda firewall and IPSec VPN for iOS clients to connect via the VPN.  When connected to IPSec, we have did all of the normal tests with DNS, http, https.  The barracuda shows all traffic passing through it.  I don’t know what to do.  We have a packet dump from the barracuda that shows the traffic passing back to the iOS device, so the website should load, but its not.
We change domain names a couple years ago and switched to iPhones. We use the active sync for email on the iPhones. All the iPhones are good except one which is showing the old domain name when she searches the address book.

We have recently moved to Office 365, and have a number of users who travel a lot.

Is there a way for them to get their emails and the email attachments downloaded so they are available offline.
if this can be automatic, so the user doesnt need to do anything for this to happen.

They are using a combination of the Outlook app and the native Mail app.

What possible ways are there to centrally manage IOS devices having different Apple IDs? Like managing IOS devices in a without the need for sharing.

We have submitted an iOS application to Apple Store and got rejected with the following message:
We found that your app is not appropriate for the App Store since it is designed specifically for Generic Development.
It would be more appropriate to distribute and sell your app as a custom B2B app, directly to your business customers, through the Volume Purchase Program. You can find additional information regarding the Volume Purchase Program and the Custom B2B App Store in iTunes Connect Developer Help.
We agree with Apple's assessment in that we are developing the application for an organization.  Apple's recommendation above was to sell the app as a custom B2B app.  However, a custom B2B solution does not appear to be an option because the mobile devices are privately owned by staff.  We wish to know if there is any other way we can distribute our app to this organization.
I set up a small office with Office 365 about 2 months ago, including a sharepoint calendar.
The calendar works great via a web site or through outlook & up until a couple of weeks ago, through the Sharepoint app for IOS.
All users have iphone 7, IOS versions 11.2.2, 10.3.3 & 11.2.5
The calendar just does not show up anymore in the mobile app.
I have deleted & reinstalled, but nothing.
Any suggestions?
Having some issue getting custom URL scheme to work..

I installed the EddyVerbruggen/Custom-URL-scheme plugin and I can open my  cordova app with custom url (e.g myapp://) However, after introducing Firebase analytics (cordova-plugin-firebase plugin ) into the app then I am not able to redirect to app using a custom URL.

If I remove the Firebase plugin then the custom URL works again.

This is an issue on both cordova ios an android app

Not sure how to resolve issue
I need to integrate Apple Pays decrypted Payment Token Format into a Stripe Rest API call. This does not require any Stripe SDK's or JS files. The raw apple pay token information has already been decrypted ready for stripe to process via 'Source', 'Token', 'Charge' etc. Stripe support will not disclose the solution but acknowledge its possible, why, i am not sure? Spreedly does exactly as i am describing with Stripe, passing in the information below, but how is it correctly structured?

This is the what a decrypted Apple Pay payment token format looks like:

I work in a hospital. We use the Stratus iPad app for interpretation.  We have a guest internet circuit that these iPads are on.  The circuit was recently upgraded from 35 Mbps to 100 Mbps. No other changes that i know of. Around that time the Stratus app stopped connecting. There is an asa 5505 on this circuit, but only default config is enabled.

 I took the ipad home and the app worked fine on my home wifi.  I ahve contacted the vendor and our ISP. Both claim it must be a firewall issue, but nothing has changed.  Any ideas?

I need to create check off forms on iPads which need a date/time stamp for each item when it complete.  

A process that would work is using Excel with a 3rd party keyboard app like "TextExpander" which would have a script to output the date/time in a cell.  However, Excel is cumbersome to use for some end users, so I was hoping I could create a solution using PDF files.

However, it seems like PDF files need JavaScript to run code in them that would output the current time stamp when a check off box is activated, and it seems like no JavaScript is supported in iOS PDF this true?  Any ideas or alternatives?

Hi, so I've got an Ionic 3 app which has a native camera plugin and onesignal plugin as well for notifications.

The native camera plugin works fine in Ionic View or DevApp, and onesignal works when build it to an APK and run it natively on my Android phone.

However, when I use an emulator to run it, even on IOS, it comes up with cordova_not_available. And even the cameras don't work. i run the command

ionic cordova run android or ionic cordova run ios

Emulator shows up but the issue is that cordova doesn't seem to be compiled in. Thus causing cordova plugins to fail.

What can possible be the issue? I've removed all the plugins and android/ios platform, re-installed an still the same.

It's kind of difficult to develop the OneSignal notification when I can't run it with the emulator.

Anyone who has come across this, please advice.
Never mind.  I figured it out.
Hi all,
I have a scenario where I need to be able to generate a .PDF notice from a native iOS application when the iPad is in the flight mode i.e. zero connectivity (offline mode)
The client will be printing this .PDF notice via a mobile printer and serving it to the client immediately.
This .PDF notice will be uploaded later when the iPad comes online.

Please provide me the best possible solution with example code snippets.

On my iPad, I asked for the IOS11 update. Its has been 2 days now and I still get the Install button grayed because "You can install this update when your iPad is finished restoring from the iCloud backup".
I don't need my iPad to be restored and 2 days is much too long anyway. So I conclude it will never end.
What can I do to finally install the update?
Certo claims that it can found jailbreak and spyware by scanning iTunes backup I know in old days itune backup includes app executable files but it is not the case anymore is Certo claim still true?
