The majority of iPhone owners couldn’t be more excited when they think about the upcoming features within iOS 6, which by now most of us know these features thanks to details on the official website, hidden features showing up in betas, and of course a nice iOS 6 demo had been seen during the WWDC 2012 keynote.
Enterprise/IT success for an iPhone with iOS 6 — we spoke about the new iOS, expected within the next few weeks, and how Apple is securing business adoption in an earlier article and last month we noted how iPhone 5 would gain an enterprise advantage. Today we wanted to highlight another take on Apple and their appeal to business/IT users, which takes a look at what these users want from iOS 6 and the next iPhone.
The article, seen here, points out that iOS 5 didn’t improve much when it comes to “mobile management capabilities“, and then focuses in detail on certain areas of iOS that need to see major improvement with the next major OS update. These include app management, more volume licensing options, OS level content lockers, advanced network options and improved security, privacy, and a lot more.
Take a look at the above article and let us know how close you think Apple will get to meeting the wide range of suggestions offered, which in our opinion will be too much of a jump this time around.
The most important area for improvement for IT/business – While the author mentions app management as being the most important area needing improvement, we’d have to disagree after speaking to a number of companies and employees using work provided BlackBerry smartphones. It seems that a massive number of companies are still sticking by RIM BlackBerry, which we’ve been told is due to “security concerns” with Android and iOS when compared to BlackBerry smartphones.
BlackBerry 10 with multi-layered security – It is understandable why security is important to companies and their IT workers, so it looks like Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Apple’s iOS 6 would need to at least meet what BlackBerry 10 is offering if they with to gain these IT/business users. To understand just how far BlackBerry go with securing their smartphones, you need to read this article that details the multi-layered security being designed for BlackBerry 10. We’ve also included a video below that gives a demo of BB10’s Peek and Glancing gestures.
Would you like to see iOS and Android take over enterprise? We’ve heard from a couple of our readers that claim “most I.T. shops are clueless“, and would love to see iOS take over enterprise — how about you?
