Let’s take a look at iOS 10. 

The XenMobile Team has highlighted what we think will be the most popular iOS 10 features for the enterprise and categorized them based on productivity, experience and security.

For mobile business-users, productivity is important.  The goal is to be as productive on the go from your mobile device as you are from your desktop.  Here are a few ways that iOS 10 can help to improve productivity at work.

  • Multi-tasking features allows the user to do two things at once. Edit multiple documents on the same screen, watch a video while editing a document, you get the idea.
  • The Universal clipboard allows users to copy and paste across multiple Apple devices including those running iOS and OS X. Need to copy something from your iPad to your MacBook? No problem!
  • Rich Notifications save time by allowing the user to respond to messages and emails directly from the notification lock-screen. Reducing the number of steps to complete a mobile task translates to more efficient workflows and a more productive user.

Developing apps that deliver a great end-user experience is critical to the adoption of mobile technology for business. So naturally, iOS 10 has something for app developers too.

  • The CallKit API allows developers to build VoIP apps that can eliminate interruptions from personal calls coming in at the same time.
  • Apple has also opened up development access to Siri to allow developers to build Siri functionality into their mobile apps to deliver more hands-free features and services.

Lastly, we can’t talk about enterprise mobility without the mention of security of intelligence. Keeping corporate data secure is the number one priority for enterprise IT.

  • With iOS 10 user data remains encrypted yet device performance has been improved.
  • New on device intelligence allows iOS to identifiy people, objects and scenes in Photos and powers QuickType suggestions. For example, if someone messages you that they are late for a meeting because they are lost, QuickType will suggest an option of sending them your location.
