Agreed. Many people with company iPhone's don't know any better and update the software. This would be a great inclusion in the next update.

That's tough to enforce when you can't run iOS5 on iPhone 5, and a lot of people use personal smartphones for work these days.

Not much good news in the Apple press lately. Maps suck, Siri is broken (you can't even get the weather in New York CITY...you get New York, Texas), nobody on planet earth can figure out how in the hell Passbook works, and now this...

Jesus.

Glad to see this is finally getting attention. Meeting invite integration with iCal, Outlook, Exchange, iOS, iCloud has been problematic since long before iOS 6 came out. Maybe a fix will be in the works soon with a this kind of attention. Or am I just being overly optimistic?

Clearly, "You RSVP'd wrong!"

Or

"You will attend this meeting!" *waves the-force hand*.... "Cause if you don't, you'll ruin it for everyone else!"

I have and they are cheap as hell. Only a handful of select upper level management get phones. But everybody needs access to schedule/mail

It sounds like the issue is just that all attendees are notified your cancellation. I doubt one attendee decline would cancel the meeting for all.
I think it would cancel the meeting if two people were meeting and one of them cancelled. Would you need a booked conference room to meet with yourself? I've seen such meetings be cancelled on both sides when one accepts and later cancels a meeting.

Huh? Not saying it's perfect, but that's a pretty big generalization. Maps have worked fine for me in my area. Siri has been fine for what I've used it for, including weather in my area. I've added 2 items to Passbook, and they're pretty cool. Basic, but it works. I'm sure over time all of it will improve...

Interesting. Not happening to us. We have Exchange 2007 and 2010 servers. No issues. That being said, this integration was never perfect. Partly the problem lies with Exchange. We have tons of issues with Outlook clients and Exchange. Meetings get screwed up without iPhones or Android phones at times.

^^^ This...

I've been using Exchange [Admin/User] since 5.5. Every release fixes a few things, and breaks others. Unfortunately, the alternatives aren't much better. Its like picking out what gun you want to shoot yourself with...

You can wipe your phone via icloud. It should be on you to password protect it.

And, if it did cancel the meeting for everyone when one person declined, that sounds like an Exchange bug.
Exactly what I was thinking. While it sounds like there is an Apple bug here, Exchange shouldn't allow anyone but the meeting organizer to cancel a meeting, regardless of whether it receives unexpected input.

Haven't noticed a problem with our small 2010 hosted exchange server.

We just did a test, with a decline and no issues.

Microsoft Exchange is the industry standard for Coporate Email and continues to be actively developed in the 21st century. I suspect you are thinking of another product?
