Last week Apple Inc. announced the newest developments in the iPhone product line. The company has decided to release two new products, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. These two new models come with the potential to aid you in business by simplifying your daily tasks, providing you with powerful organization tools, and increasing your productivity at work.Apple announced last week at their keynote presentation that their two new iPhone models, the 5s and 5c, will be released this Fall. The purpose of producing two different models is simply to provide a quality smartphone at a budget-minded price, while further advancing the iPhone experience. Apple has designed the iPhone 5c model at decreased production costs in order to sell the device at just $99 (with a service contract). The iPhone 5s model will be fitted with innovative hardware, promising to be the most advanced smartphone on the market. Let’s take a look at how these two models can increase your productivity at work.
When comparing the iPhone 5s with the 5c, you’ll notice some drastic differences in physical appearance, most notably in color. The 5c model is available in five distinct color options; white, pink, yellow, blue, and green. One way that Apple was able to cut production costs of the 5c is by using a one-piece plastic casing, which differs from the traditional glass and aluminum casing. For any concerned customers, the plastic casing is lined with steel inside of the device, for extra support. Besides being set apart aesthetically, the iPhone 5c comes equipped with the same hardware specs as the current iPhone 5 model (which will be discontinued at the release of the new models), carrying the identical A6 processor, battery life, camera, screen size, etc. In business, the iPhone 5c is a great device that can add some color to your workday, without shattering your bank account.
If you’re looking for the latest hardware developments in mobile technology, you’ll want to consider upgrading to the iPhone 5s. While Apple has improved many hardware specs with the iPhone 5s (camera upgrade, faster LTE, lighter weight, etc.), two developments are worth highlighting. First, is the innovation of the A7 processor, making the iPhone 5s the first 64-bit mobile device on the market, meaning that it is capable of producing CPU quality graphics in the palm of your hand. The A7 processor also claims to be twice as fast as the previous A6 processor equipped in the iPhone 5c. The second technology worth mentioning is the brand new ‘Touch ID’ feature; a fingerprint scanning device built into the ‘home’ button on the front. The iPhone 5s will be able to scan your fingerprint to unlock the phone, and to confirm purchases from iTunes, the Apple App Store, iBooks, and more, virtually allowing your fingerprint to be your new Apple password. The iPhone 5s was built to save time spent waiting on devices, allowing for more time spent managing company matters.
Of course a technologically advanced piece of hardware is only as good as its equipped software, and Apple promises a fully compatible mobile operating system with iOS 7. In fact, iOS7 promises to be the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, built with groundbreaking intuitive design, and fit to operate 64-bit graphics. Apple has taken their already great mobile operating system and made it better with improvements to organizational apps like Siri, iCal, and Mail, including a new multitasking feature, a new bluetooth/wi-fi file transfer system, and much more. iOS 7 also lends itself as the supreme business tool for any size business. With this new software, a manager can easily purchase and control apps across multiple devices with MDM configuration and App Store license management. iOS 7 also offers great new features like per-app VPN, enterprise single sign-on, third-party app data protection, and more. iOS 7 will be available for both new iPhone models, and promises to be an excellent feature of the new devices for you, your staff, and your business.
The new iPhone products look like they’ll be excellent personal devices for business managers, while offering the opportunity to develop an entire mobile infrastructure for integrating a BYOD (bring your own device) office environment. The iPhone 5c and 5s equipped with iOS 7 can increase your business productivity both personally and corporately by combining innovative hardware with intuitive software.
