Everything you need to know about Apple IDs in iOS 7 and Mavericks

rjupstate rjupstate writes  |  about 10 months ago

rjupstate (1960880) writes "A user's Apple ID is more than just an iTunes/App Store/iCloud account. It is a one-stop digital identity for every way in which a user interacts with Apple — to activate a device, buy apps and content, get support, communicate with others, sync content, and even apply for jobs with the company. Handled poorly, that ubiquity can severely complicate things in the workplace both for users and IT."

rjupstate rjupstate writes  |  about a year ago

rjupstate rjupstate writes  |  1 year,11 days

rjupstate (1960880) writes "As BYOD becomes ubiquitous, it's natural to consider the possibilities of extending it to PCs, Macs, and other types of notebook computers. The problem is that legacy technology and approaches may make BYO-PC much more challenging than BYOD. BYO-Mac, however, may not be quite so hard for many organizations."

rjupstate rjupstate writes  |  about a year ago

rjupstate (1960880) writes "The inclusion of a new Frequent Locations feature in iOS 7 has raised the specter of Apple and its partner companies as big brother spying on individuals and gleaning secret data on businesses, but that isn't what people and businesses should be worried about.
