Invitee is really best left as a legal term.

comment What do you call people who have been invited to an event?
Invitee ought probably to be limited to discussions of the law of trespass.

comment “Ask help/permission/forgiveness” or “Ask FOR help/permission/forgiveness”?
Our linguistic version of the Great Wall of China, and perhaps just as effective.

comment How to convert this sentence into passive voice?
Yes, you changed the meaning. Look closely at what you wrote. The original sentence was a statement of what was required and by whom it was required. Nothing was said about the installation actually having been accomplished. Your proposed sentence is a statement that it was accomplished and why. Also see my suggestion in the comments below. Moreover, I too am curious as to why you would want to change the original statement, unless simply as an intellectual exercise. It is certainly the simplest, the most elegant, and the clearest.

The software code is required by the carrier to be installed on the iPhone by the manufacturer. I think that this changes the original sentence as little as possible while converting both the finite verb and the infinitive to the passive.
