A look at new Apple iOS 7 features that are good for business, from Tekserve

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="288"] Image via[/caption]

When we think of an iPhone, we tend to think of the consumer apps and games. But neighborhood Apple experts Tekserve (store at 119 West 23rd Street, between 6th and 7th Avenue) have given us a quick rundown of the upcoming iOS 7 features that will be most important for business-oriented iPhone users in the next release of the operating system.

Let’s jump in to their analysis.

  • Managed Open In: The ‘open in’ feature on iPhones can actually be a security hole, but the latest version of iOS lets companies block which apps can access this feature to protect sensitive business information.
  • Per App VPN: Apps can send their data via a ‘VPN’ tunnel, controllable by the MDM admin rather than the app developer. This keeps this network traffic within the private Virtual Private Network.
  • App Store License Management: One big change is that now you purchase licenses rather than apps, and then businesses can assign those licenses to (or revoke them from) their employees.
  • New MDM Configuration Options: “MDM now supports fonts, accessibility options, AirPrint printers, and AirPlay screensharing.”
  • Streamlined MDM Enrollment: “IT can now specify MDM enrollment at the time of purchase.” Tekserve calls this a game changer that they will discuss in the future.
  • Enterprise Single Sign On: Users can sign on once, and the password will be securely shared among multiple apps and Safari so you don’t have to keep signing in.
  • Locally Cache Apps & iBooks: Using any Mac, you can install the $20 Mac OS X Server and use it to cache apps and iBooks to improve bandwidth issues when multiple employees need the same stuff.
  • Additional Features:
    • Third-party app data protection
    • Smart mailboxes in Main
    • View PDF annotations
    • Exchange 2010 note syncing

Tekserve examines leaving cable tv behind and getting all of your content streamed

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="240"] Image via[/caption]

In an interesting post this month on the blog for Local Apple specialists Tekserve (store at 119 West 23rd Street, between 6th and 7th Avenue), they break down what you need to get all of your content through streaming, rather than broadcast tv through your cable company.

Could it be done? Many of us have seen our monthly cable bill skyrocket higher over the last 10 years, and cutting the cord on cable could lead to massive savings. It’s a growing trend to get all one’s content through streaming through iPads, smartphones, PCs and even your TV, without the cable box.

Read their post “Cable vs. Streaming: A Beginners Guide to Cord Cutting” to learn more about devices that can be used, streaming services that are available, and how to still get your news and live sports if you dump your pricey cable service.
