With iOS 7, it's time for Apple to embrace business and enterprise users
Apple may not have targeted the enterprise directly yet with the iPhone and iPad, but for some time, enterprise users have nonetheless chosen Apple products to use at work. It's therefore in the Cupertino, California-based technology giant's best interests to start catering for the needs of those in business, particularly if it can ultimately add to the company's bottom line.
With the expected release of Apple's next iteration of its mobile platform, iOS 7, later this year, what can we hope to expect to appease the burgeoning number of enterprise users?
Here are 15 suggestions that would bolster Apple's relationship with its enterprise customers.
A physical divide between 'personal' and 'work'
BlackBerry (formerly Research In Motion) hit the nail on the head with BlackBerry Balance, giving business users the ability to switch between "personal" and "work" modes by separating work and personal apps, settings, email and IT policies.
Apple could include a similar feature that could, with a handy shortcut from the home screen, switch modes that enforce the enterprise's mobile device management (MDM) policies while connected to the corporate network.
