I've experimentally checked the iOS behavior by trying to initiate a phone call from one of my apps. Here are the results: It is possible to programatically start a phone call without user confirmation. I've just written a single line of code that is executed right after the App has been loaded. Meaning that if your App is in the foreground it can start a ...

I've made a test app to check this. App can open URL such as tel://123456789 only when it is in foreground and active. When I call this code even just after entering the background state, the API to open this URL did nothing. So to answer your question - apps won't be able to make a call without your knowledge. To test this paste this in your AppDelegate: ...

As an app developer with my own apps and client work on the store, I understand your concern, but there's nothing shady about this request. Your app is being made from a mixture of code files, images, and maybe some mp3s, etc. Once it's ready, your developer needs to package it up and upload it to iTunes Connect so Apple can review it for the store. The ...

Sorting Manually In an album that you made (not a smart album like Time Lapses or Selfies), to move a photo around: head into that album, press Select in the top-right, hold down on the photo you'd like to move, and drag it to the place you'd like to move it to. Sorting by date or name In the Photos app on Mac, go into an album, press "View" in the menubar, ...

When a wipe occurs, the file system key is deleted. It's as simple as that. Page 11 of the September 2015 iOS Security White Paper states that the file system key is stored in NAND. The metadata of all files in the file system is encrypted with a random key, which is created when iOS is first installed or when the device is wiped by a user. The file ...

This is from the iPhone user guide: Share photos, videos, your location, and more With iMessage or MMS, you can send and receive photos and videos, and send locations, contact info, and voice memos. The size limit of attachments is determined by your service provider— iPhone may compress photo and video attachments when necessary. You didn't ...

I don't know of a way but when I need to do this, I change the contact name temporarily. Instead of "John" it would be "Tell John story".

From your question, it seems you're mainly concerned with wanting to keep (or return to) iOS 9.1? If that's the case, then just don't update. If, however, you're concerned with your data, such as contacts, text messages, photos, etc then updating to iOS 9.3.1 is not going to result in you losing any of this data. If for some reason you've had to erase ...

If you open the App Store page for an app and scroll to the bottom, there's a section titled "Compatibility" that will tell you what the minimum version of iOS is that the app requires. (This is not a screenshot of the OP's problem app, but rather The Infinite Arcade, which was the first app I saw.)

Don't create another app to separate the management of the restaurant and customers. That's just unnecessarily dividing it up into two apps which will make people confused. You don't want confused customers. If I were to find two apps for Pizza Hut, one for corporate use and one for general use, how would I feel? You also want to make things easier for ...
