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.

We are moving from Fireeye MTP  to another product, considering Lookout .

Anyone can point me to or share reviews on Lookout?

Also, what are the assessment criteria I have to look out for considering that
our corporate phones (mostly iOS currently) & iPad are managed by
MobileIron MDM?

I heard iOS is tailored from FreeBSD so I'm hoping to be able to do something like
"ps -ef |grep email_client_process"
if it's not there, then restart it.

Reason is our MobileIron email+ client kept getting killed by iOS as iOS sees it
as a 3rd party/foreign process.

any chance of doing this on an MDM controlled device?
I recently turned in an iPhone 5 at the end of a project.

This iPhone 5 is now out of state.

Is there a way for me to logon to my iTunes account on the internet and remove my iTunes account from this iPhone 5 without me having to have the iPhone 5 in front of me?

If there are risks, what's the mitigation?

A client of ours had an iPhone 5 and recorded calls with a digital recording device by plugging the device into the audio jack.  He did the same when he got his iPhone 7 via the lightening to 3.5mm adapter but it only records the other persons voice when records calls.   I've tried calling apple to get clarification on why this what the fix would be but they suggested contacting the digital recorder manufacturer.  Can someone tell me what's going on with the recording?  Haven't found much searching the web.

I need to turn on email alerts to notify me of a new Like or new Follow on Twitter. How do I do this?

We are working with iPhone Tasks and Siri to  get them  to work together and was instructed to create an account in iPhone CalDAV.  Prior to  doing it we search what it is but still can't identify exactly.  Wiki says "Calendaring Extensions to WebDAV, or CalDAV, is an Internet standard allowing a client to access scheduling information on a remote server".  Since we are instructed to create it in our iPhone and add emails info, we wanted to know, besides what Wiki says it is, if its a an actual server location where our data being transmitted with Siri commands sent over to it.  Please advice.
Exchange 2016 on Server 2012 R2.

Exchange is working fine.

Mobile users, all on iPhone, can connect to the Exchange Server for mail when they are off site, but not while on site & connected to the LAN Wi-Fi.

If they turn Wi-Fi off, they connect (obviously via cellular)

Why can they not connet through the LAN Wi-Fi?

Please provide me with a list of small cameras that I can have mounted to the back of my car (by the license plate) that will then broadcast (using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi) to an Android or iPhone so that I will be able to accurately determine and safely be able to backup my car.
Hello all,

I have some Win 2012 3cx v15 phone systems and was having trouble with apple push notifications for calls to remote devices.  I've determined it to be a TLS issue.  I had used IIS Crypto to remove the less secure SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0 and 1.1, leaving just TLS 1.2 and more secure ciphers.  This breaks apple push notifications from the 3cx server/software.  I put back TLS 1.1, no luck.  Put back TLS 1.0, now push notifications work.  I find it odd that I should still need 1.0 enabled on the server.  

Is apple push still using that protocol and not 1.1 or 1.2, or might there be something else going on here.

I'm by no means familiar with protocols/ciphers, just determined what fixes the problem.

We developed some apps for our customers.  Besides scanning our mobile/IOS
website, auditors have required that we scan the IOS/Android apps that we have
developed for our customers IOS devices.

is this a feasible or common practice to scan the apps running on clients IOS?

What are some of these scanning tools that anyone can suggest?

My view is to scan the mobile portal that we offers, not client's mobiles/iPad
Currently our MDM policy blocks our corporate-issued iPads
from accessing iTunes (to prevent data leakage/loss).

There's a number of senior staff who wants to use the
iPads to project out via projector for presentations.  However
our MDM (think it's MobileIron) will enable iTunes access if
we enable this projector access via the iPad's lightning port
(which we use an adaptor to connect to the projector : I
 presume it's the projector's HDMI).

How can we allow projector connection & yet block iTunes

I'm assuming the data leakage/loss will occur when these
staff bring the iPads home to connect their lightning port
to their home laptop's USB (via an adaptor).  

Any IOS apps that's smart enough to detect if it's projector
traffic or iTunes traffic?  or any way to block sync'ing or
communication with iTunes from these iPads?

I was having twitter forward tweets to my cell phone as SMS messages. I signed up for loads of news sites and got a message about 200 messages / day limit...

Then I got the twitter app for IOS and was getting the messages on my lock screen from both twitter and messages. I turned off forward messages to phone.

Then in last couple days, I stopped getting any tweets.

was there an update in ios twitter account?    I went into the twitter app and see a bell with check icon.  (was it there before) checked that and a window labeled account notificiations was set to none. I changed that to all tweets now I get the tweets twice.

how do I only get tweets from only the ios app and showing up on the lock screen on the iphone?
