At their latest Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) this past summer, Apple announced several new features in their soon-to-be-released iOS 15, noting an emphasis on communication changes and on-device intelligence. For this article we will focus on the new enterprise features, allowing easier and more advanced management of end-user devices while simultaneously improving the end-user experience and privacy.
Delivering the right apps and resources to users at the right time is critical to delivering a positive employee experience, which in turn is paramount to enterprise organizations. A device without the appropriate apps could have little to no value to users and be costly to a business that has invested in the solutions. Similarly, apps that are difficult to use, bug-riddled, or insecure can be a distraction and cause more problems than they solve.
The release of iOS 10 showcases Apple’s ongoing commitment to improving every aspect of the device and app experience for enterprise customers. But iOS 10 is not just about new features. Along with the latest upgrade, Apple has continued to expand its partner ecosystem so customers can access a broader pool of industry-leading apps and quickly deploy them on any iOS device.
The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers. We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand. This moment calls for public discussion, and we want our customers and people around the country to understand what is at stake.
