Apple products are intuitive and easy to use. The interface allows employees to use familiar actions like swiping, scrolling and tapping to collaborate, stay organised and adapt to new programmes and procedures more quickly. Each iPhone, iPad and Mac comes with powerful assistive features for vision, hearing and motor skills, so they’re accessible to everyone.
Great softwares designed for the most powerful hardware. Built-in sensors in iPhone and iPad enable iOS apps to use data like location and proximity to deliver an intuitive, personalised experience that no other platform can match. The powerful, Apple-designed processors in every iPad and iPhone push the limits of technologies like augmented reality and machine learning.
Simple, intuitive and capable products, designed to be secure. iOS and macOS are built on a UNIX foundation, making them both stable and robust. Constant encryption of information at the system level, at rest and in transit help to protect corporate data. Regular software updates protect iOS and macOS from emerging security threats. Face ID and Touch ID use face or fingerprint to unlock the device and authenticate apps having safeguards in place to ensure that both third-party and in-house apps can only access data in authorised ways.
iOS and macOS are built to support the most common productivity and collaboration systems in enterprise today, including Microsoft Office and Google G Suite. Apple products work seamlessly with key infrastructure services like Microsoft Exchange for email and calendars, as well as wireless networks and VPN solutions from Cisco. And when employees switch from another device to Apple, built-in migration from Windows or Android makes moving their data simple.
It’s easy to deploy and manage Apple devices even at the largest scale. Every iPhone, iPad and Mac can be set up and configured automatically — eliminating the need for your IT department to handle each device individually. IT can also push out apps directly to devices, and employees can personalise company-owned Apple devices by adding their own apps.
To ensure longevity of Apple products, the hardware is tested in the Reliability Testing Lab of Apple using methods that mimic real-world experiences. Programmes like AppleCare extend the life of the hardware if anything goes wrong. Built-in security and regular software updates keep the products current, protect them from costly viruses and lighten the workload for IT. And because people are already familiar with Apple products, employees don’t need as much help from IT to get up to speed, ultimately lowering overall labour costs.
All Apple devices are instantly familiar, come with many of the same built-in features and apps, and work together to help you be more efficient. You can start a work project on iPad or iPhone and finish it on Mac. With AirPlay, one can stream presentations from Mac, iPhone and iPad to an HDTV using Apple TV. And AirDrop helps sending important documents from one Apple device to another.
