Be Careful of that iOS6 Update, It’ll Ruin Your Exchange Server

If you have an iPad in the Enterprise and use your iPad with an Exchange Server you might want to hold off on that 6.1 upgrade – it’ll f@ck up your environment something fierce.

Apple has made yet another massive mistake with iOS and Calendaring. When you use ActiveSync it generates huge amounts of traffic, fills the log drive and more than likely will corrupt your calendar. If you’re a user, don’t connect that device. If you’re an IT admin, you better block that device.

Apple iOS 6.1 upgrades result in excessive transaction log growth

Is iOS6.1 causing Excessive logging? Anyone Else See this?

Circular Logging, Embrace It!

Come on Apple, what the hell are you thinking? If you want to be part of the Enterprise you might want to do some testing against an Enterprise Server. People use Exchange, it’s simply a reality, perhaps a little QA is in order. You cocked this up with iOS 4.x, 5.x and now 6.x. Look a trifecta of Epic Fail when it comes to ActiveSync! With all them billions of dollars you have squirreled away you could probably afford a dev that knows how to code to the ActiveSync spec. Or maybe you could hire an MS dev. Or pay for the MS SDK. Or maybe you could just ask how to code it correctly and stop looking like a buck of @#$%ing idiots.
