You can check what version of operating system (OS) your handset is using by following the steps below:
The first digit of the 3-digit ‘Version’ number (x.x.x) depicts what version you have. If this version begins with a 3 – i.e. 3.0.1 – then you have version OS 3.0, which means you can use the iPhone app straight away.
If you have a previous version of OS running – i.e. 2.0.1 – then you need to upgrade your handset via iTunes Store®.
1. Connect your iPhone/iPod touch® to your PC/Mac and open iTunes Store2. Select your device on the left which will take you to the summary view3. In the version section click ‘check for update’
If your device does not have OS version 3.0 or above installed, iTunes will let you know there is a new version available and ask you if you wish to upgrade.
If your connection is lost while entering the details of a new order or trade, you will simply be logged out from the iPhone app.
The trade/order will not be processed, and no changes will be made to your account. You can then log back in once you have a suitable connection.
If your connection is lost while a trade or order is being processed, the action will be received by City Index and the trade or order will successfully be processed. This is dependent on the details being received before connection is lost. In any case, you will be able to log back in to check your open positions and active orders.
The City Index iPhone app is fully secure. It employs a negotiated SSL connection to City Index for all transactions to and from the iPhone and iPod touch.Transactional information is fed into the iPhone app from City Index without any information being stored directly onto the device.Users have the option of saving their account number and password, but this is only saved if the user requests it and acknowledges the risks associated.
The iPhone app has also been certified and approved by Apple.
This message will appear if your handset does not have a strong connection. In this case, try to find an area with an improved data connection, or connect to a local Wi-Fi network.
The ‘Three Second Rule’ is a security measure put in place to ensure clients only trade on the latest live market price – if a market price is 3 seconds old or more, the trade may not be processed. If you find that this error message appears more than once, this may be due to a weak connection, either through Wi-Fi or data connection.
We recommend using a Wi-Fi connection where possible, to ensure you receive the very latest live market prices.
Within the main Settings menu of the iPhone, you can find individual settings for select applications. Within the City Index iPhone app option, you’re able to customise certain additional options, such as Auto Resume Login, Inactivity Timeout and more.
