Apple Launches iPhone Enterprise Beta Program
Thursday, March 6th, 2008 at 3:40 PM - by
Apple announced on Thursday its iPhone Enterprise Beta Program. IT Departments can try iPhone 2.0 software before general release and provide feedback.
"Announcing the iPhone Enterprise Beta Program: a unique opportunity for IT departments to try iPhone 2.0 software before general release. If your company is selected to participate, you’ll test new iPhone enterprise features within your corporate environment, then provide Apple with valuable feedback," Apple said on the new Web page.
The program highlights some of the new enterprise features of the iPhone 2.0 apps: push e-mail, push-contacts, push calendar, WPA2/802.1x, enforced security policies, more VPN protocols, device configuration, and remote wipe.
With these features, Apple appears to have addressed every single enterprise feature that IT managers have cited as missing ever since the iPhone was released in June 2007.
Companies that want to sign up for the program can do so at the link above.
