A work colleague, an iPhone user, sent me a link to the "iPhone OS Enterprise Deployment Guide”.
So I had a look at the guide, expecting to see a half-arsed attempt at supporting corporate deployment requirements.
I was wrong.
There is much to like about what Apple has done for corporates.
My favourite three?
Lose your iPhone, and we can remote wipe it for you. I had a customer ask me that very question today about BlackBerries. “Yes, we are able to wipe your BlackBerry remotely.”
Syncs to Microsoft Exchange.
And supports the password policies: enforce password/maximum number of password attempts (before device wipe)/password complexity.
My great annoyance with the BlackBerry is that I cannot easily configure each one with the same “look and feel” via a simple policy program. So I spend 10 minutes each device getting them the way we ship then to customers.
It looks as if I would need to do that only once with the iPhone.
Now to convince the boss to buy me a iPhone 3GS, so I can try it all out.
