iOS

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.

Hello,

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?

How can we sync Tasks/Reminders time entered when creating an entry either in the computer  (via https://www.icloud.com/#reminders) 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.

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 am new to Xamarin, C# and SQLite. I found a article https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/mt736454.aspx.
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?

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.

Cloud Mounter on the MAC has the option to mount most cloud services with Encryption but I a not sure how you would access the file from an iPhone or PC.

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?

Thanks

I'm trying out a few different UK network sim cards.  For EE under the Enable 4G setting it offers, OFF, Voice & Data and Data only.

What has voice got to do with 4G because the other network sims dont mention Voice and data only 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?

Email to be used is MI's email+  (not the native built-in email client)

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?

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.
