Fix “the app required specific feature not available on the device” and install fitness on iPad

First of all, Not all devices support Fitness app, please check apple doc for more information.

And I’m using Ipad Air 2 which in on the support list, but when try to install Fitness app, I still got error “the app required specific feature not available on the device”.

After investigation, I found out that to install Fitness App on iPad, you need to meet below requirements:

  1.  You have an apple watch paired with an iPhone.
  2.  Home app is installed on both iPhone and iPad. If you removed them like me, install them back. And then open the Home app.
  3. If different apple IDs are used on your iPhone and iPad, (for example, the iPad is for my daughter so it’s using my daughter’s apple ID). go to Home App and add both IDs into the same home. Then reboot both iPhone and iPad

Then you should be able to install Fitness App on iPad now.


Customize Office 365 Home installation

I just switched from Office2019 retail to Office 365 Home edition.
And we also can’t choose which office program to install, which means by default access/outlook will be installed on my computer and OneNote will not be installed.

And I checked MS document (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/product-ids-that-are-supported-by-the-office-deployment-tool-for-click-to-run-77654e77-aaeb-4ed6-84eb-1d8b0e086590), it seems we can also use Office Deployment Tool to customize Office 365 Home/Personal installation.

1, go to https://config.office.com to generate a configuration file for installation. For Office Suites, you can choose Office365 Proplus, and we’ll change it after the configuration file is generated.
2, select the Apps you want to install.
3. For the update channel, select “Monthly”
4. Answer the rest questions
5. Click export to download the XML file.
6. Open the XML file, change prodouctID from O365ProPlusRetail to O365HomePremRetail or O365PersonalRetail.
7. Download office deployment tool from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49117
8, open command line, run

setup.exe /configure Configuration_home.xml


And below are my configuration files, you can use it if you want.

  <Add OfficeClientEdition="64" Channel="Monthly" ForceUpgrade="TRUE">
    <Product ID="O365HomePremRetail">
