Apple's latest mobile operating system upgrade, iOS 7, will be ready for public consumption on Sept. 18. To help you prepare, enterprise mobility company Cortado has some suggestions (in infographic form).
The major upgrade was first unveiled at Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference earlier this spring and has been in the hands of developers ever since. Now iOS 7 is poised to hit the general public in a week, Sept. 18.
If Apple’s upgrade track record is any indication, just about everyone with a relatively new device — iOS 7 works on iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, iPad mini and fifth-generation iPod touch — will upgrade to iOS 7 almost immediately.
Companies with enterprise iOS apps have been given plenty of time to prime their apps for iOS 7. They also know the score after having gone through the iOS 6 upgrade. But are they ready?
A recent survey from enterprise mobility company Cortado suggests that a good portion of them have a lot of catching up to do. Cortado surveyed 1,350 IT directors and administrators to access the impact of iOS7 in the enterprise. A whopping 42.5 percent said, “I don’t know.”
If you’re one of those behind the ball, Cortado put together a handy infographic to help you out:
