Not continued ago there were few options for accessing a Microsoft Exchange server from an iPhone or iPad. While the iOS Mail, Contacts and Agenda apps accept the adeptness to affix to Exchange (via ActiveSync), abounding appearance aren't accessible in the first-party Apple apps.

Another additional is that your claimed mail, contacts, and calendars in the Apple apps aren't backed up to the accumulated Exchange server (depending on your configuration).
Using Apple's Mail, Contacts, and Agenda apps you can't abstracted abbey and state.
