Conspicuously missing at the time was a new version of Windows Live Calendar.Microsoft also shipped its Windows Live Mail and Outlook Connector 2007 software (see my review), which provide free Windows-based email/contacts client and Outlook connectivity, respectively.Note: After answering a question for a friend of a friend I realized that we’ve been remiss in writing a good tutorial for syncing Outlook for Mac to i Phone. The magic that happens underneath is called Sync Services. Getting calendars and contacts from Outlook for Mac to your i Phone doesn’t require Exchange, i Cloud/Mobile Me or any third party service. The conduit between Outlook and i Phone is i Tunes.Another workaround that has been tossed around on Apple Discussions site is redirecting the spam notifications into a separate spam calendar, and then removing that calendar.The problem with this approach is you will need to do this everytime you get a spam invite, which at the moment can be a few per day. Not really, but this allows you to delete the i Cloud spam calendar invites without responding to them and without notifying the sender.
The service also provides the means to wirelessly back up i OS devices directly to i Cloud, instead of being reliant on manual backups to a host Mac or Windows computer using i Tunes.However, some Exchange users prefer to keep personal information separate from work information.It is possible for them to sync non-Exchange information from Outlook to their i Phones via i Tunes while syncing Exchange information over the air.Third-party i OS and mac OS app developers are able to implement i Cloud functionality in their apps through the i Cloud API.Backups occur daily when the device is locked and connected to Wi-Fi and a power source.
