I have another problem with the upgrade to my new iPhone 6. Everything works fine now and IOS 8.1 looks ok to me. However, I am having a problem getting mail to upload when the 'mail' icon is closed.
I am using Outlook on an exchange server and when I had my iPhone 5s, mail would happily update all the time i.e. I could hear the harp sound I assigned to mail 'doing its stuff' all the time with the new mail being added and me hearing the change in the number of new e-mails being displayed on the mail icon.
However, I now have to open 'mail' now before I hear the harp and the mails update. I've tried going to notifications and switching on some of the notification options but I still cannot get it to work. Can someone suggest a solution?
Also, when I got my iPhone 5s last year, I loaded my apps and straight away I started to get notifications on the locked screen. For example, 'apps gone free' would say 'your new apps gone free are ready' at about 6 PM every evening and my BBC news app would put messages on the screen and make the BBC news sound when a new piece of news came out, that no longer happens on my iPhone 6, although I believe I still have the same settings as on the iPhone 5s. Why and what is the solution?
