iPhone makes a great business companion. It’s an all-in-one device that’s packed with a whole range of key features that boost productivity, improve communication and increase security.
If you’re after the best handset for business use, you don’t have to look any further than iPhone. And because we’re helpful, we’ve put together this rundown of everything awesome about Apple’s signature handset.
iPhone keeps you on your toes, thanks to some of the fastest mobile tech around. The latest iPhone models (6S, 6S Plus, SE) pack the speedy dual-core Apple A9 processor, and boast greater LTE 4G coverage, fast WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. This is ideal when you’re connecting to the internet, file sharing via AirDrop, streaming content to Apple TV, video conferencing over FaceTime, or running a personal 4G hotspot for WiFi on the go. iPhone fits right into any business workflow, whether you’re in the office or out in the field.
Starting with iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, iPhone have packed bigger screens than ever, with iPhone 6S measuring in at 4.7” and 6S Plus boasting a larger 5.5” display. Bigger is always better when it comes to multi-tasking, allowing you to navigate between apps with ease, organise emails, messages and pictures, and browse the web with minimal clutter and maximum clarity.
iPhone comes preloaded with 40 Apple apps designed to boost your productivity, over 1.5 million apps on the App Store, and support for specialist apps that link to the back office and fit right into your day-to-day workflow, whether it’s a stock check app for retail or a company-based social networking app.
It’s now easier than ever to seamlessly transition between iPhone, iPad and Mac. If you’re on the move, you can start work on iPhone or iPad before moving over to your Mac back in the office. The Apple trio are perfect for a continuous workflow no matter where you are.
Over the years, smartphones have gained a bit of a bad rep for battery life. iPhone 6S and 6S Plus have this sorted, boasting impressive battery life and a low power mode that keeps your handset going for up to three hours longer.
iPhone receives unparalleled support from Apple, with regular software updates that provide new features, functionality and security enhancements. You won’t need to worry about upgrading your iPhone each and every year either –continuous iOS updates pretty much guarantee your handset will stay up-to-date. iOS 10 is up next and promises another round of features and innovation.
The latest iPhone models feature a 12-megapixel camera, complete with 4K video. With the 12MP camera, you can take high-quality shots of important presentations, as well as brainstorming and idea sessions, ideal if you’ve covered a whiteboard and don’t have time to jot it all down. 4K video is a handy, cost-effective tool for internal communication and production – perfect if you want to create case study videos quickly, for example.
Starting with iPhone 5S, Apple added a neat fingerprint scanner to the home button named ‘Touch ID’. Once you’ve registered your print, only that print (or others you’ve saved) can be used to access the device. It provides faster, more comprehensive security for all your data, including important documents and emails, so even if you lose the handset, all your stuff is secure.
Siri was first introduced in 2011 and has received a whole range of updates and features since then. Siri is now your best friend when it comes to dictation, hands-free calls, web searches, maps and much more.
iPhone is perfectly suited for business and offers complete enterprise support. Whether it’s Exchange and VPN integration, app purchasing, distribution, deployment or ongoing management, iPhone makes things nice and easy so you can get on with the job.
