The Apple iOS modules allow you to monitor events performed by your Apple iOS device and/or perform various actions using your Apple iOS device.
Getting Started With the Apple iOS App

Setting Up the Integromat for iOS App
Before you start building a scenario using the Apple iOS app modules, it is necessary to set up particular functions on your Integromat for iOS app to allow the app access to your device's corresponding functions.
Using the app
The app is designed to run in the background and perform selected functions. On the main screen, you can switch between two lists: Events and History. The Events include a list of captured events that have not yet been sent to the server. The History contains all events that have already been sent to the server and those that generated an error when being sent. By clicking on an event, you can view its details, including errors that have possibly occurred.
The app synchronizes events automatically. The synchronization is performed in the shortest possible time interval supported by the operating system. Although for Android devices, events are sent immediately, for iOS devices it can take several hours to send events. The automatic synchronization also occurs every time you open the app. To start the synchronization manually, drag the list of events down.
|Synchronize events in the order they were created||This option allows you to keep the synchronization order even if the scenario is not available. No new events are processed until the first event in the queue is processed.|
|Send photos only over WiFi||When enabled, photos will be sent only when your device is connected to the Internet via WiFi. This prevents high data consumption when connected via the mobile data network.|
|Send changes in contacts to Integromat||This function allows you to trigger the Watch contacts module in your scenario when the contact is added or updated on the device.|
|Allow Integromat to import contacts to the device||This function allows you to use the Create a contact module in your scenario to create a contact in your iOS device.|
|Send All||Tap the button to send all contacts from your device to the Integromat scenario.|
|Allow Integromat to import events to the device||This function allows you to use the Create a calendar event module in your scenario to create a new calendar event on the iOS device.|
|Send new events to Integromat||This function triggers the Watch a calendar module in your scenario when the calendar event is added or updated on your iOS device.|
|Send All||Tap this button to send all calendar events from your device to the Integromat scenario.|
|Allow Integromat to import photos to the device||Enable this option to use the Upload a Photo module.|
|Send new photos to Integromat||When enabled, every time a photo is taken, the app sends the photo to Integromat and triggers the Watch photos module.|
|Track GPS location||Activate this function to trigger the Watch entrances to/exits from a geofence areamodule when the device enters and/or leaves the specified area.|
Please note that you may have to spend a couple of minutes outside/inside the geofence area to trigger this function.
Set the area you want to watch.
|Allow Integromat to import reminders to the device||This function allows you to use the Create a reminder module in your scenario to create a new reminder on the iOS device.|
|Send new reminders to Integromat||This function triggers the Watch reminders module in your scenario when a new reminder is added or updated on the device.|
This function allows you to use the Send a push notification module in your scenario to send a push notification to the selected device.
