Hi,

Our iPad and iPhone safari bookmark are not syncing.  Yet we can each other recent tabs (it seems as that part is syncing).

How can we sync safari bookmark on these 2 devices (latest iOS version both)

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

It amazes me that my toddler nephew is already a YouTube wiz. He remembers which videos are his favorites and knows how to close/skip ads. He even knows which videos are "inapoopiate" and avoids them. Although he'd rather watch kids play with toys than play with his own, I admire that he's already become this tech-savvy. What do you think about kids being exposed to technology at a such a young age?

Yup! It's all about balance and of course what they're actually doing on the device itself. I'm loving all these programming toys that have been coming out lately.

I think it is good that kids are learning how to use technology. However, I think there should be a balance where the kid learns to use technology as a tool, learns social skills, and spends most of his/her time being active.

I don't think technology is bad. The problem is that even WE as an adults don't even know how to use it properly.

Apple's iPad Pro and Microsoft's Surface Pro aren't supposed to be competitors in my eyes, but Consumer Reports (CR) sees it a bit differently.

If you would like my take on it, the Surface Pro is just a smaller laptop that has tablet functionality. While the iPad Pro is a tablet that has laptop functionality but only depending on what apps you have. Meaning that you can use the iPad Pro for strictly playing games from the App Store, or you can turn it into a laptop replacement and use it to knock out those daily business chores.

All in all, we should all agree that we like what we like. If you're an MS fan, I'm sorry you got dinged like this, but if you're an Apple fan know that the iPad Pro can be a laptop replacement if you choose to use it that way. Oh, and don't go laughing at your MS buddies because CR smacked them on the hand. What goes around comes around, and we should all just respect that we have different taste and love to drive the machine of our choice.

Take care everyone.

Justin, the one that caught my attention is facetime. ugh! the only people you can connect with are other Apple devices. And I wasn't talking about using my Surface to manage SharePoint, I was talking about being able to see/use SharePoint and OneDrive from within Word, PowerPoint, Excel. The cloud storage is treated just like any other folder on my computer.

And I'm jealous of the vette.

BTW, Justin... what you said about going to your Mac to get some stuff done? That. What if you could squeeze your Mac into your iPad? That's why Surface is not like an iPad.

Apple lovers, September is around the corner.  Are you excited to see what Apple's been working on the last few months!?

I'm eagerly awaiting news on the latest iPhone.  The iOS 11 features coming out look promising too.

Same here! So many rumors have come out about the next iPhone it almost feels like they've already announced it... It being the 10th anniversary iPhone has kicked the hype into overdrive.

And I'm definitely looking forward to iOS 11 as well. For me, one of the most interesting things is how they're doing the new dock—very Mac OS X-like.

Anything in iOS 11 that you're looking forward to most?

I really want to use Apple Pay so that feature in Messages looks cool.  I'm stuck with Venmo as a pay system and don't really want to be.  And a lot of business I've used in this area don't really appear to cater to Apple Pay, which is a bummer.  Ideally, I would like my phone to be my digital wallet then I don't have to carry credit cards anymore!

This seems like a common issue that most have figured out with simple fixes.  What do I do when none of those fixes work?  Plug in Ipad to PC running Windows 7.  Ipad home screen is unlocked and clicked to trust PC.  I could see all the photo folders under Apple ipad. Now I still Apple ipad but the folder is empty (though it's actually full).  Followed suggested steps to view hidden files & folders...still empty.  Tried resetting location/permissions on ipad as internet suggests... still empty.  I have uninstalled the ipad & driver to start over...still empty.  I have spent hours on this and followed every single internet suggestion that seems to work for others, yet mine still doesn't work.  I do notice that in every single internet forum comments section where people are thanking the post for finally fixing their problem, there is always 1 or 2 people that say it doesn't work for them (like me) and those comments are never acknowledged.  What to do when the regular fixes don't work?

I work at a small catholic school.  We have Epson projectors in our classrooms.  In some rooms we have large screen tvs.  We use PCs, MacBooks, and two different versions of iPads for students/staff.  They vary in age.  We have found that there is no single way to connect to the projector that works for each device.  I am looking for a solution (wireless utility or multiple connectors...iPad (small connector or 30-pin)-to-VGA/HDMI/USB, PC-to-VGA/HDMI/USB) that we could put in each classroom so that little to no instruction time is lost trying to connect student/staff devices to the projector.  Needless to say, finances are a concern.

We are looking at AirServer but does that need to be installed on each device or can it be installed on a single device in the room that would work?  Would a TeamViewer solution work?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Locked out of my Apple account - Why?

I would much appreciate someone explaining why I get Locked Out of my apple account every few weeks.

Seems I have done nothing but work on my several Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, Macs) - sometimes a few are on together.

Then I have to scramble to access my Apple credentials - totally wasting time.

Is this a scheme of Apple to assure Apple product users are really who they seem to be?

This is really a pain!!

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?

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)

My OS is win 10 Pro 64 bit and I just purchased the above software, but am having problems in loading it successfully.
The error is that it needs iTunes latest files, but i have the latest iTunes which I reinstalled.  Is there any notes for the successfull installation of this software.  I had contacted support, but it looks like the holidays are taking them long to respond.

My CEO uses apple mail and has been reaching a max quota limit lately.  Although he most of the time uses webmail to access his email on his computer, he has an iPad and iPhone with an IMAP configuration.

He has asked me to wipe down all the email on his webmail but keep a local copy on his computer so that he can refer to it as needed.  

I know in outlook this would be an archive file and get it done with it. But how do I accomplish the same via Mac Mail. Any other solutions?

Thanks

I have an apartment leasing office that has an Ipad.  They want to be able to hand it to a potential resident and have them fill out an application online with it.   They are afraid that the device could walk out of the premises somehow.   I think the first thing to do is to hold the potential applicant license.   you would think that would be enough really.  Could also connect the Find my device to an apple id, so then they could find it if it walked out.  

So, what I am asking here:  Any ideas on way to secure it even more.  I had researched and found a device that was real thin and you could place it in the ipad case.    Then there is an app on an iphone in the office that would beep if the device walked too far away.    But what if that person left the company and then we have to set it up all over again.
Any ideas would be appreciated!

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
access?  

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 have an iPad and I've been hacked through non Apple email. I suspect, though, a 'piggy-backer' on my iTunes acc. And I also found a notice of device id exchange between a similarly named email acc and another device. How does Exchange work?
