I have a user that has recently been unable to use the 'Open in' feature on their IOS (Iphone 6) device.
When opening a PDF from an email, they have the option normally of being able to select the icon in the top right of the screen to show apps that the attachment can open with.
I have selected the more.... option and not found any apps in there.

Is there a fix that anyone has found, or a setting on the iphone i may have missed that has been accidentally turned on\off?

Additional information:

  • Currently using the GOOD for Enterprise app for Corporate email delivery
  • The feature has previously been available
  • The Iphone is fully updated with all IOS updates.

Please let me know if there's any additional information that may assist with this. The person is an executive and i am desperately trying to find an answer, having already spent days poring over forums and not finding a solution.

Many thanks.

I can not remember how long this problem has existed, but I did upgrade my cell phone from iPhone 6 to 7 a few months ago.

I enter a new contact into Contacts on my El Capitan MacBook, but it never shows up on my iPhone. I make sure to select the

"All iCloud"

choice on the left side, under "iCloud"

What could be wrong?

I know people who travel internationally quite often, and they need to:

1) select the countries of interest
2) view a combined calendar of holidays

I hope this exists.

I have iCloud and setup to save images automatically.  Yet my phone is 32gb and my iCloud is 100gb.  I want to by able to move images files vids etc to iCloud and delete from iPhone to make space.  How can we do this?

We have a staff member who left and the iPhone assigned to her was returned.  Around 3 weeks later we re-assign the device to another staff yet when resetting to factory default it request the previous staff Apple ID password - we thought we had password saved but when used, it didn't work (either we forgot wrote it wrong or the employee changed while in use).  Help.
We made a restore to a new iPhone 7 (the previous has some problems).  That was done yesterday night.  For some reason we used the old iPhone (both are exactly alike) for a series of world we needed to do.  That device made another backup to the cloud late last night.  Now we want to restore that backup to our new phone which has current data from previous backup.  How can we restore last night backup to an iPhone with data?
need steps to add water mark in iphone video.
any option in iphone or any free tool?
Our iOS devices are loaded with so that we can use offline maps. We have a spreadsheet with a series of hyperlinks that will launch and display the desired location. The Apple version of the hyperlink looks something like "ge0://_X-mwmlX3T/52015_Wood_Pol". If I SMS this link to an iOS device it will work as it should but when we try to launch it from a hyperlink in an Excel spreadsheet we get a message that says "The link address may be invalid, or you may not have permission to open it". I know it's not invalid because it works when copied and SMS'd so it's an issue of permission. Is there any way to get an iOS device to allow a hyperlink launch an app like this, or is that just too much for Apple products to cope with?
What are the steps to add another user's calendar to an iPhone 6 (with iOS 10.3.3)?

Office 365 is being used to host both of these email accounts.

Is there any way of doing this other than adding the other user's Office 365 account to this user's iPhone (and choosing only to sync the other user's Office 365 calendar? This is a security risk since we don't want the user with the iPhone to go into the account settings and be able to download and reply to the other user's emails).
A user with an Office 365 account has problems when he puts meetings on his iPhone's calendar.

These meeting never appear within Mac Outlook 2016 on his Mac (which is running the macOS Sierra v. 10.12.6 OS).

The user also says that meetings he puts on his Mac Outlook 2016 calendar don't always appear on his iPhone calendar.

All Mac Office 2016 updates have been installed.

What can be done to fix this issue so that the calendar meetings on the iPhone and Outlook 2016 will always fully sync?

I'm looking for a small GPS tracking device that can be put on devices such as laptops or keychains that can then be tracked to its exact location using a GPS tracking system.

I've already looked at systems such as the Trackr device ( but this device relies on the Trackr tracking device coming into 100 feet of an iPhone or Android phone that hasthe Trackr app installed on it.

What are some other GPS tracking devices that can truly track the GPS tracking device no matter where it goes?

I have 4 video on my YouTube Channel, and can see them listed on my iPhone7 and my Desktop when I click the "YouTube" icon on my website. My unique URL is the href for that anchor tag.

But it fails when I follow these steps from a Tablet (Note 4, running Kit Kat). It brings me to my Channel, but does not list any videos.

Is there a privacy issue blocking them?

When I load the browser and go to, then search for my channel, it works fine.

But why the iExplorer still showing the notes still there. How to remove those "deleted" notes permanently.

Please advise.

Thank you.

My phone does not lock since I can not find where to set the PIN.

Also, how do I set the fingerprint to unlock the phone?

I have done a little Obj-C development years ago and do recall that the iPhone was great at protecting my app's data from the prying eyes of other apps running on my iPhone.

Is this completely safe? Or are there risks of having secret data belonging to one app being read by another?

And what about the database?

I think the database was called SqlLite? Is this still true?

Does the iPhone completely protect my app's data stored in the DB?

We have an employee that is unable to sync their calendar items from their iPhone.  They are able to sync to the device using the outlook app but not the native app.  Sync to the employee's iPad works fine.  We have tried the following:

1. Delete the email account and put back on
2. Turned off calendar and turned back on from both the account settings and from the calendar app

Hi, I have a need to take a lot of images and video for a certain project I'm going to be working on. I'm going to use my iPhone 6s and a Smooth Q gamble rig.

My question is - is there a simple and quick way to download my media to a hard drive in the field without using a laptop and iTunes?

Is there a stand alone hard drive (or small device) that I can use out in the field while I'm taking my images and video?

Thank you,
Hi -

I have a client who's Apple Mail app is popping up with this warning message, the same is happening on the iphone.
I have attached the screenshot. Do i need to go to the hosts in order to fix this or could it be that i need to change server detail settings on the mail client because something has changed at the server end? Never where to start with these specific certificate issues.

Many thanks
Good Morning,

We have a user in our office who is requesting to have a feature to automatically forward all the voicemails coming in to his email on an iPhone. Does anyone know if this is possible somehow ?  

I know on visual voicemail there is an option to manually forward each voicemail to email but he wants it all going automatically offcourse. I called the provider - Bell but the agent had no idea.

If anyone know of any app or any way to automate this let us know :)

Thank you very much!
