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.
Better email management
More and more enterprise users are switching from in-house solutions to outsourced services, such as Google Apps or Microsoft's Office 365. While Apple already has Gmail and Microsoft Exchange (of which Office 365 is a cloud-based version), Apple has already catered for a wide audience.
That said, the iPhone and iPad maker has left a lot to be desired. Many of the features that these services offer are absent from iOS — even the ability to mark messages as different colors. Many third-party apps for the iPhone and iPad already offer this very basic functionality.
Quick access to core system features, like wi-fi and VPN
One of the major gripes many enterprise customers have is the ability to quickly access core system features of the iOS-powered device, such as wi-fi or, even more crucially, virtual private networking (VPN). Ordinarily, these features are only two or three buttons away, but having an extra bar in the Notification Center — which is accessed with a simple swipe down from the top of the screen — would be positively received by power users.
