So, this iPad with be the tablet that we will be deploying to the company.   The cost of the tablet is $329 per tablet so it will cost a little over $18,000 to deploy the company.

Today, businesses large and small, are embracing tablets as a way to boost employee productivity and improve efficiency and customer service. Employee-focused help has evolved from manual, labor-based services to automated, online services.  According to VentureBeat, “93 percent of Fortune 500 companies have deployed or are testing iPads, an incredible feat considering that big businesses generally take forever to incorporate new technology in their workflow.” (CITE:  Article by Venture, “Deploying Apple in the Workplace”)  With today’s devices, employees can access corporate emails, contacts, and calendars.  Small and medium-sized businesses in Milwaukee may soon become faced with how to launch presentations and access corporate applications and customer databases. Forrester Research estimates that tablets and smartphones make up about 25 percent of computers used for work globally, replacing PCs (https://go.forrester.com/). Tablets are lightweight and equipped with intuitive touch features, are perfectly suited for mobile operations. While some businesses may purchase tablets for their employees, others embrace bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies, while still others offer a combination of both.

Deploying the Latest Version of iPad Pro to the Enterprise: Cost Calculations

For this post I’m going to teach you how to deploy the latest version of the iPad pro in the least number of steps and the way that I see easiest. The version we will be deploying is the Apple iPad Pro 10.5-inch 64GB model in Space Grey. Going about purchasing these is easy. You have a few options ranging from calling apple, visiting the apple website or buying from a 3rd party like Best Buy. What I see as easiest is buying from the apple website, it’s easy to use and it’s a quick checkout. Projected cost of the 57 iPad Pros will be about $37,000 before taxes. They do offer a bulk buy discount which is about 8% so that 37,000 is only about $34,000 before taxes. There are no shipping costs from the Apple website either so that’s a nice little bonus as well. The shipping usually takes anywhere from 2 days to a week. For a big order like this one I would assume it’ll take about a week so be prepared to wait. Employees will probably ask if this will be replacing their laptops/pc’s. The simple answer is no. The iPad is a tool for mobile work and for use in meets, projects etc. When you don’t feel like lugging around your laptop just use the iPad. So, after ordering the iPads send out a quick email explaining that these are not replacements for your computers and is another tool to complete your work better. Now on to apps that make these iPads useful for business and the whole reason you’re buying them. First...

What are the benefits of iPhone jail breaking? What are the disadvantages?

  Jailbreaking an iPhone gives a user the ability to access more features and apps then the default setting. With a jailbroken iPhone you can access an alternative app store from third party developers like cydia. You also have more options to customize your phones interface and functions to fit you instead of using the default wallpapers and screens that come with the phone. One of the most popular features of a jailbroken iPhone is the ability to turn your phone into a hotspot and use it as a broadband modem by tethering for free while most carriers charge high prices for this service.   There are several disadvantages that come with jailbreaking your iPhone. It is important to note that although jailbreaking an iPhone is legal, is frowned upon by Apple and will void your warranty. It is also important to back up your data so that if you need to take your phone to the store for repairs you can reverse the jail break and return it to its default settings. This is will help prevent you from voiding your warranty or breaching end user license agreement. Another disadvantage of jailbreaking your iPhone is the danger of being exposed to malicious applications. Although there are several apps from third parties that can be downloaded, all of them are not screened as thoroughly as the app store. This could allow users to download apps with the intent of hacking into your smartphone. Once you download an app it gives the developer full access to your phone and its information. Sometimes Apple can force a mandatory update that requires...
