10 Ways Apple iOS 7 Targets Businesses, October 30, 2013 Apple has made great strides to appease not just business users, but also the IT administrators and security managers responsible for protecting and managing the infrastructure that supports mobile device use. The release of iOS 7 had many pundits lauding Apple's leadership for listening to the business contingent and releasing a raft of new management and security features that show progress for making iPhones and iPads more than consumer gadgets.
Security of iOS devices has long been a sticking point for enterprises, and some have complained that Apple didn't listen to their security concerns. With the introduction of its new Touch ID fingerprint biometric device, Apple shows that it isn't entirely tone-deaf to the security challenges of business customers. The feature, currently available only on the iPhone5S, adds another layer of security to not only device access but also application and account access.
