I've learned enough to begin a solid JS game.
My Phone game will need to be on an iPhone, iPad all others and a MacBook / desktop.

Does this mean I must use proportions of the document length and width values for many of my GUI objects?

If width*2 < height, does that usually mean phone? Is there a device-type data-member?
What is the best way to approach device length and width? and produce a feel as expected?

The user was visiting the web page for thinkwellgroup.com (which looks to be a pretty amazing company).  They were using a recent model iPhone and were browsing in Safari for the iPhone. They wanted to call for information on behalf of their company, and saw a phone number on the bottom of the home page.

They then had some sort of message from switch.com appear on their Safari screen.  Switch.com is a colocation company.

Should they be worried about iPhone security?  Could there be an issue with a colocated website?

Problem: Using Outlook to move an existing mail item from an Outlook PST or IMAP folder into a different Outlook IMAP folder causes the IOS native email client (INEC) to display the ‘wrong’ date/time – that of ‘now’, rather than the time when the item was received or sent.

Whether or not relevant, such a move also changes the item’s ‘modified date’ as displayed in Outlook as follows: a) A move whilst Outlook online changes that date b) A move whilst Outlook offline does NOT change that date upon the move, but does change it to the time at which you subsequently go back online. (and that time is also what is seen in IOS)

Possibly the iCloud server is imposing today’s date/time as described by Nicolson (Search Nicolson “RFC 3501 section 6.3.11” re: Gmail.)

However, some items in IOS display a different date from what Outlook shows as ‘Modified’, it seems likely that IOS is not using whatever variable Outlook uses for ‘Modified Date’.

Moving an item between folders in the same Outlook PST does NOT change the item’s ‘modified date’ as seen in Outlook.

Moving in INEC or iCloud Web: Moving a message between folders within Icloud Web or INEC does NOT 13change the modified date/time shown in Outlook IMAP folder, or the date/time shown in Icloud Web or INEC.

Gmail Behavior: By comparison, using Outlook to move mail items into Gmail IMAP folders also causes the Outlook ‘modified’ time to change. But the INEC client (and the Gmail app) show the ‘correct’ timestamp – …

I built a website (https://www.beaconhillprivatewealth.com) several years ago which uses iScroll 5.1.3 (https://github.com/cubiq/iscroll) to handle various scroll effects. Once an iPhone is upgraded to iOS 13, scrolling on my site no longer works. If you try to scroll a page, the browser behaves as if there is no content to scroll to, and bounces you back to the top of the page (actually, it never really leaves the top of the page).

Obviously something changed in iOS 13 (or Safari) which is making the site not work correctly, and my assumption is that the problem lies with iScroll, because all other websites work fine. I am not too familiar with how iScroll works exactly, but its all JavaScript. So what could have changed with iOS 13 with regards to JavaScript compatibility?

I looked up some articles regarding iOS 13, and found a few snippets in one article (https://medium.com/@firt/iphone-11-ipados-and-ios-13-for-pwas-and-web-development-5d5d9071cc49) related to scrolling:

Scrollbars are now draggable on iOS and iPadOS

One-finger accelerated scrolling now supported on every scrollable DOM element (iframes and elements with overflow: scroll) which makes the -webkit-overflow-scrolling style to promote momentum scrolling officially deprecated.

I'm not skilled enough to know what this means or why it would cause iScroll to no longer function. Is there any hope that iScroll can continue to function on this website, perhaps with some tweaking, or JavaScript …
Hi, I use my Apple Watch and iPhone to make Voice Memos, however I can't seem to find them anywhere on my Mac. I know they are synced with iCloud, etc... but there doesn't seem to be a Voice Memo app on the Mac?

Thanks in advance for your help.
Hi all.

I'm running into a bug using the Microsoft To-Do app on my iPhone. I'm doing the following:

I have my Outlook 2016 program open on my computer and I'm completing tasks on the To-Do app on my iPhone.

I noticed the following:

When I complete the task in the To-Do app the date completed is a day before and not today's date.

Any idea why this is happening?

Thank you in advance.

I've been toying with the idea of getting an Apple Watch for some time, and the main reason I haven't is because I like to collect and wear more traditional watches (non smart watches), and I don't think it looks right when people wear a luxury watch on one wrist and an Apple watch on the other... but each to their own :-)

Can I ask the people here who use an Apple Watch or another form of Smart Watch, what are the main benefits you find from day to day, over just looking at your phone?
Is it possible to set a time in which iOS apps on the iphone are updated, say when we are asleep after a certain time e.g. 1am?

Also is there a way to prevent it connecting to e.g. a portable wifi device which I have data limits compared with a home wifi which is unlimited?
User A is receiving email normally.  User B is somehow accessing and forwarding User A's email to himself, but using their (User B) iPhone.  I'm trying to figure out how.

How can I find out what access User A has to User B's email?
How can User B send user A's email to himself as himself?

I do not see any delegate access.
User B does not have AD permissions to anything but his own email.

How can he send someones else's email to himself if he doesn't have access to the email?

What is best and fastest way to copy contacts from iPhone 7 to Windows 8 laptop?

Recommendations for iPhone App to move iPhone contacts from Exchange account to the local iPhone contact list for executive retirement
My google Pixel 1 completely broke last week and I am 99% it will never boot up again after many attempts at trying to fix it/ get it to boot up.
However it did successfully backup my whatsapp and pixel data onto my google account before breaking.
I have now received my new iphone and really need to restore my pixel contact information and whatsapp data. I have not yet installed whatsapp yet as it only allows restoring to the last icloud backup.

My main question is:
Is there any way to get the data from gdrive onto a third party software that can move it to my icloud account, or directly to the iPhone?

I have found many forums pointing to software but all require a working android and iPhone.

Do I need to get an android (cheap) phone that accepts google backups?

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated, if there is no possible way, I would prefer to check first before accepting defeat.


There is a need to disconnect an iPhone which is connected to the network, however there is a need for the iPhone to be disconnected remotely temporarily  but always
on the same internal network - the goal is so that after it reconnects again to  wifi it will select a different IP  (the current IP has been put on the server as an exclusion - since the intent is to use the IP address that the iPhone is currently connected to  - to another device)

Is there a way to temporarily disconnect the IP of the iPhone - doing this remotely - perhaps via a command line?
We just moved from Exchange 2010 to Office 365. We have a public folder with some 16,000 contacts that used to sync properly with a contact list on an iPhone if copied to a folder in user's mailbox.  

Under O365 the subject folder syncs only partly to the iPhone apparently due to a folder ActiveSync limit in O365. To test I downloaded and connected the CiraSync app to the public folder and it stops at 4440 items and reports "up to date."
The obvious solution of deleting 3/4 of the contacts is not palatable at the moment. Do you know of a work around or a way to increase the O365 limitation?
I know this has been asked a thousand times, but is has anyone ever figured out how to access a shared calendar on an iPhone?

We have a hosted Exchange environment and when you setup an iPhone you can only see your own email and calendar. The only trick I can think of would be to get another user's password, add their account, then uncheck everything but "Calendar" to sync as a way of viewing their stuff. I really don't want to do this, though.

I did download Outlook for iOS but I don't see an option for adding shared calendars in it, either.
 I have Windows Server 2016 Essentials and an user wants to connect to the server folder and open files from iPhone.
 Fyi, all users can access their office computers from home using "Anywhere Access".
 I know that I can install Microsoft Remote Desktop App on their iPhone and create a connection in the app, but  that would be too difficult to use.
 Ideally when the user connects to the essentials server, they would be able to open the share folder and, using fingers, open Word, Excel, or PDF files.
 Can you help?
I have been accessing my Office 365 Shared Mailboxes on my iPhone using IMAP until recently.  These are the settings I had
Email Address:   sharedmailbox@domain.com
Incoming Mail Server
Host Name:  outlook.office365.com
User Name:  myemail@domain.com/sharedmailbox
Password:   password for myemail@domain.com
Outgoing Mail Server
Host Name:   smtp.office365.com
User Name:  myemail@domain.com
Password:  password for myemail@domain.com
I have verified exchange settings and IMAP is enabled on shared mailbox and user mailbox.  
iPhone keeps prompting me for password.  I deleted the account and went to re-add using the same settings but I keep getting invalid password.  I can log into the Outlook web browser just fine and access my shared mailboxes from there.  
Any helps to correct this would be great, I really love being able to access those boxes from one mail client, namely my iPhone mail app.
Hi, trying to figure out how to print from an iPhone to a printer, without using WiFi Direct. Is there any easier way to do it?

This course will introduce you to Ruby, as well as teach you about classes, methods, variables, data structures, loops, enumerable methods, and finishing touches.

Say, on the android phone system there is a Google Maps application and this is obviously also available on the Apple phone. Does the Apple phone have any native solution for location sharing ? I'm looking for Live location Sharing with friends,, similar to what is available through the Google Maps App. Please advise detailed steps on how to activate such service on Apple phone. Thanks, Shaun
We recently moved our Exchange 2013 Server to a new location with faster connectivity.  Since the move iPhone users who up until this point have had no issues connecting their email just get the message "Exchange Error username cannot get mail the connection to the server failed"

This seems random and affects two out of 10 users so far, the rest are all syncing fine.

If I reboot the server, mailflow comes back for a random period of time.  The users can then sync again until one by one they start to give the error again.

Ive run the latest CU and tried every fix I can find but no joy.

I should add all users can sync their phone when in the office with no issues, its only when away from the office that the email fails.

Ive also just been told if the affected users reboot the iPhones that also causes a resync but the emails then drop off again randomly and dont come back.

we use Office365 Echange on our iPhones, Windows PCs and Apple Computers.
When adding a appointment on the iPhone, the Entry on the Apple Devices using Outlook 2019, come with a Timezoneinfo like we whould be in different Timezones!
Adding a appointment into the same calender on a Applle Computer or WIndows PC ist correct, without such a Timezone nonsense!
Calendarentry with Timezonewarning, even when we're all in the same Timezone!Like in this Picture, the appointment was set for 15:00
I've checked every Setting on the iPhone, the PCs (Applw & WIndows) and Office365, we have all the Same Timezone settings Europe/Vienna.
Any Idea, why the Calendar entries from out iphone are messed up?
so here is an odd situation today, we use O365 and ceo got 2 emails but the subject line somehow swapped but the email content remains the same

as an example

Email 1 > msn news > Subject is > latest news headline

Email 2 > cnn news > subject is > electrical insight

but Email 2 has Latest news headline and Email 1 has electrical insight, he is asking for an explanation and this one puzzles me

any ideas?
We have an iPhone users whose calendar meetings automatically change to Cupertino time. We have verified that the phone does not adjust for time zones, verified iCloud is in the right time zone. We thought it was something with his apple id so he created a new apple ID and we got him a new iPhone and he is still having the issue. I don't think it has to do with our Exchange server since no other users have this issue. The user took his phone to the Apple Store and they verified all the settings and said they have no idea why it is doing it.
anyone else have issues with meeting created on iphone outlook app does not sync to show on Computer outlook app??
active sync is working properly and active sync devices are all synced creating the meeting on computer outlook sync just fine with IOS outlook app but if created in IOS outlook app it does not show in outlook
