Error description

  • With Apple changing the iOS8 DeviceId to no longer start with
    "Appl", some Companion and To Do flows are not functioning
    properly as the device is not longer recognized as an iOS8
    device in the Companion and To Do flows with the new DeviceId.
    This causes issues in handling prevent copy mails, attachments
    being limited to the max admin setting when they should not be,
    out of office not being recognized as supported, and possibly
    other issues.  This change will fix the recognition of iOS8 with
     the new DeviceId such that the existing functions work as they
    did before.
