Last week, Apple discreetly tipped its cap to businesses after unleashing iOS 5 to the general public. This latest version of the iPhone and iPad operating system is chock full of critical enterprise features that went largely unnoticed during Apple's iOS 5 launch event aimed at consumers.
Simply put, iOS 5 shows that "Apple really has been listening to businesses," says Aaron Freimark, IT director at Tekserve, a services firm helping Fortune 1000 companies adopt the iPad.
It's a good thing, too, as CIOs face a daunting challenge keeping up with iPads and iPhones infiltrating their companies. Apple recently claimed 92 percent of the Fortune 500 are testing or deploying the iPad.
