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.
Automatic app updates
Apps are updated all the time, and in many cases at least once or twice a week. While it can be annoying having to update all the time, this causes a fragmentation problem among enterprise users. Some iPhone and iPad users will be using one version of an app, while others will be using a newer version because they took the time to update. This can lead to security problems for IT managers.
It makes sense to allow automatic app updating, particularly if this can be set as a policy by the corporate MDM service. Of course, it would make sense to have this enabled over wi-fi only, so as to avoid "bill shock", particularly if the purse strings on the IT budget are particularly stretched.
