Apple initially launched iOS app development for mobile platforms for users, it has been aiming ever since to involve users in business enterprises and startups as well. Fortunately, much to businesses’ relief this time around—Apple publicly announced its latest iOS 11 to be the top go-to mobile platform for small and large enterprises. With a 10-year of experience in the digital transformation arena, we believe the latest iOS 11 brings some exciting updates that are worthy of enterprise adoption. Check out some of the best enterprise-related features the App Maisters team collected for you:
1. Keep up with Your potential customers using AR for iOS
AR is now considered “the big thing” for emerging companies, big or small. Hence, the availability of Augmented Reality, AR, on iOS 11 proposes an immediate market penetration for business owners. Using AR, you can interact with your customers on a whole new level, keeping a variety of options at your fingertips.
Apple made this possible through its ARKit, which was introduced at its conference held in June. You can deploy ARKit’s framework via our expert developers at App Maisters. The idea leverages the latest TrueDepth Camera, allowing you to track faces as 3D characters for instance. Or, you can utilize VIO, (Visual InertialOdometry), which uses input via device sensors allowing objects to be tracked, resized, and relocated on your camera screens.
2. Successfully Transfer & Receive payments through Apple Pay
With iOS 11, Apple users achieve the ability to send and receive money through ‘Apple Pay’ using iMessages. This can turn out to be a much-anticipated feature in terms of peer-to-peer cash payments and fund transfers. The Apple Pay process is quite simple, you can activate it on all iOS devices, including Apple Watch, and verify identities through biometric security screening.
3. Yield Amazing Productivity with the Help of iOS Machine Learning
Big Data and Machine Learning are the fastest growing technologies being adopted in data sciences today. Since modern enterprises and startups actively seek big data & machine learning analytics, iOS 11 has provided them with this benefit. All your iOS 11-run business apps can now display intelligent features and models with the help of the Core ML framework.
4. Access documents anywhere, anytime using the new Files app
Apple’s new Files app has an impressively dynamic feature for businesses. It’s a full-fledged business hub, which allows users and developers alike to access files directly from other apps, devices, iCloud, and 3rd party sources like Dropbox or Google Drive. Along with the iOS 11 Files app, we can integrate other storage services’ APIs and actively seek to create apps that enhance your productivity by accessing user files and data.
5. Level Up Your Business Games with the Redesigned App Store
This one is a real breakthrough for all enterprises and startups. For the very first time in Apple’s history, it redesigned its App Store by giving it a completely new look. The latest version now includes sections for featured apps & games. This is a big leap, especially for consumer devices, games, and entertainment business owners since the update also provides detailed app development, story, and design section.
6. Scan and Sign Documents Easily via the Notes app in iOS 11
With the new Notes app, Apple devices can now easily scan and sign documents with the touch of a finger or Apple Pencil. This capability can also come to the rescue when a device is placed within cm of a scanning object. It can be a barcode, a coupon, a product sign, or a business card—iOS 11 gives you an opportunity to reach out to employees or business inventories on the run.
Apart from these, a bunch of other features such as a much-advanced Siri, dragging & dropping in between apps, multi-tasking, along with redesigned control panel are also waiting to be explored on the iOS 11.
