Lots of times when I use the oven in my kitchen to cook it sets off the smoke alarm in a nearby hallway.

I would like to purchase a smoke alarm that has a remote way of turning it on and off (with either a remote control or an app installed on my iPhone X) or a hanging on/off switch (that will hang down from the ceiling and allow me to turn the alarm off whenever I am cooking and then turn it back on afterwards).

What type of smoke alarms have these capabilities and where can I buy such smoke alarms from?
I am trying to add a user profile on a iPhone 6 through Mobile Iron and keep getting this message during the install.  "Profile Installation Failed, The resource could not be loaded because the App Transport Security policy requires the use of a secure connection."  I have tried this on the users old iPhone 6 a new iPhone 8, on wifi, using just cell service and get same message no matter what I do.
me.com email account in Outlook.

After getting a new iPhone and changing the password of the Apple ID the icloud sync in Outlook not longer works and when it prompts for the password,
 imap.email.me.com or smtp the new password does not work. No setting in outlook changed in that time period. 993 and 587 and etc are all the same. It's a bit like a cert or other verification is needed.

PS: I've read most of the post on EE so far and found nothing that helps to date.
I would like an app for iPhone, which will allow the download  of PDF files to the iPhone.
There is study material on a specific website, where otherwise in Windows, the PDF study material is downloadable, however on iPhone, it opens the PDF file but within a window, and it does not allow for the download.
Any suggestions?   Safari and Chrome do not seem to work.  And when trying Safari and using the export option to iBooks, it basically sends a screenshot of both pages but not the full PDF document which might be about 60 pages.
Hey guys,
I am wondering if anyone out there knows of a way to change which account a contact is syncing with on Iphone?  The situation that I am in now is that I have a user who is a delegate to the CEO of this company.  She has both her email as well as his email added to her phone. She put a personal contact in and it synced to the CEO's phone.  She also expressed a concern about losing her contacts upon leaving the company after her email is removed.  She also does not want to turn off the contacts for either Office 365 account as she wants to be able to look up contacts for the CEO as well as for herself.  Basically we want to be able to do have these people create their own personal contacts that do no sync with Exchange accounts, while still being able to download the contacts from Exchange and work with them, which I don't think would be unreasonable, but I cannot seem to make that happen on Iphone.  

Does anyone have any suggestions?
I have one user with an odd issue.

When he sends an email with an attached photo from his iPhone to his company exchange email account it appears as embedded NOT attached.

This ONLY happens from his iPhone.

Other people can send attached pics from iPhones to his email and they arrive still as attachments.

What could be causing this???

we have configured a new Server 2016 DC and and new Exchange 2016 sever (on separate hardware).

We are not able to get our iPhone's to setup an Exchange account. The account on the phone will all 'green tick' but when trying to collect email is comes up 'account error' - 'unable to connect'.

This is a summary of what DOES work.
DC is working fine
Exchange is working fine
We have configured various DNS settings on our DC to reflect out external URL, Autodiscover, OWA and remote - they point to Exchange
We have a WIldcard SSL that gives us a secure SSL connection from outside our organisation to the DC's RWW and Exchange OWA
Internally Outlook clients can connect fine
Externally - NON DOMAIN joined PC's can configure a Exchange account and CAN send and receive email.
We have configured AUTODISCOVERY (URL 'A' and 'Cname' records) - and according to Microsoft's Remote Connectivity Analyser all tests pass - EXCEPT IMAP and POP which is due to the Wildcard SSL NOT being bound to those two protocols (but shouldn't be an issue- i don't think)

I have tried setting up the Exchange account on iPhone 6, 7, X iPad 2 and iPad Pro - none work and all show the same connectivity issue with Exchange.

We seem to have setup everything correctly - but clearly there is something missing.

Can anyone offer any support please
Thank you
Can’t understand this

I use exchange

Any ideas what this could be ?
Lately, when I have been taking pictures with my iPhone X some of the pictures have been captured as movie files (.MOV) instead of just regular pictures (.JPG files).

How can I change this so that when I use the camera app on my iPhone it will only capture picture and won't capture movie files?

I recently upgraded a user's iPhone from the 6 to the 8 and he pointed out that while all the main stuff transferred over fine, the autocomplete/recent history for e-mail addresses didn't but was something he used frequently. (I transferred via itunes backup.) I can't find much on this online to see if it's possible to bring this over. He doesn't even have iCloud set up, which is what I saw mentioned a few times. Any thoughts?

so user added 50 contacts on his iphone he added manually for a few weeks.  

Weeks later when I was adding exchange I was asked what to do with existing 50 contacts?
I choose "keep on phone" and he CAN see them

Where are these 50 contacts? Id like to copy them to his 300 and make it 350 in exchange

I had to do this quickly and leave and wont be back for a few weeks.

If he looses that iphone I want to ensure I have the 350 in exchange.  

How to do this or check 50 were added to exchange on that day?

* I dont want to use iphone back up (as he is using an old hotmail for itunes email ID ID he doesnt have the password for - another nightmare question Ive asked on another question ) and want to set up his new iphone in the future from scratch as a new iphone so backing up iphone is NOT the answer to my situation.

user got a person I havnt met to perhaps import a back up of the iphone OR they put in a hotmail account they know longer have access or know password to

when i try to log out (even though he isnt logged in!) it wont let me
