Supporting iOS7 in the Enterprise

By: Absolute Editorial Team | 9/24/2013

September 18, 2013 marks the official release of Apple's iOS7; if your enterprise supports iOS devices (iPhones, iPads), whether corporate-owned or BYOD, IT needs to be prepared for effectively rolling out iOS7.

I spoke with Tech Republic about 7 Tips for Supporting iOS7 in the Enterprise. Detailed in full on Tech Republic, these 7 tips include:

  1. Use Apple IDs for BYOD, allowing enterprise the ability to purchase business apps through the Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) and distribute them to devices, even employee-owned devices
  2. Know your third-party iOS apps to ensure they are MDM friendly
  3. Read the fine print to make sure your device is supported by the upgrade
  4. Test, retest and rewrite in-house apps
  5. Decide between BYOD vs COPE
  6. Use per app VPNs for improved app performance
  7. Upgrade to iOS 7

Is your mobile deployment ready for the iOS7 upgrade?
