There’s no doubt that workforce mobility has increased dramatically over the past few years, with technology evolving alongside to support it. This has caused the very preconception of what is and isn’t possible whilst on the move to change; there’s an understanding now that you don’t need to be in the office, or even have a laptop with you, to undertake critical business functions.
The rise of Cloud applications, and the increase in power of mobile devices themselves, opens up a whole new world of possibilities. With Apple becoming a master of the iterative upgrade though, does the latest iPhone 15 range really enable your workforce to Be More Mobile?
Although modern smartphones are far faster than their earlier counterparts, we all know how frustrating it can be when we’re trying to do something, and waiting for the device to catch up. Each new iPhone release represents an upgrade in chipset technology to improve speed, and this year is no different.
The iPhone 15 and Plus feature the A16 Bionic processor, whilst the Pro and Pro Max models feature the A17 Pro. Arguably overkill for some businesses, the A17 Pro is potentially the best smartphone processor currently available. The A16 has already been field-tested in last year’s iPhone 14 Pro but still remains one of the fastest.
Equipping your staff with this technology means that they get the very best mobile experience available, no matter what they need to do whilst working remotely.
The Dynamic Island
Another feature previously available on the iPhone 14 Pro, the Dynamic Island is now available across all iPhone 15 models. Here, Apple has decided to go in another direction than rival smartphone manufacturers; instead of trying to camouflage a front camera using hardware solutions, they have hidden it in plain sight by blending it into a more kinetic interface.
As you might expect from the name, this new display element changes shape dynamically depending on its current function. Not only does it provide more visibility for Apple alerts, but it enables simultaneous functionality with a raft of apps running in the background. With smartphones now used for longer, continuous periods rather than just to quickly check email or voice messages, these benefits are even more valuable. Remote workers now have a better tool to keep track of upcoming appointments and tasks, and improved multitasking capabilities.
Apple has been slow to switch over to the standard USB-C port for device charging but has finally made the change following the EU ruling. Regardless of the motivations, this will undoubtedly make things easier for users; now there’s no more desperate searching for a colleague with a Lightning charging cable when your device is on the brink of battery death.
Although batteries improve with each iPhone version, the constant push for better user experience can result in apps with increased battery drain; this is why in real terms, battery life improvements often seem minimal. Utilising a more universal charging technology gives your employees more freedom to use their mobile devices without as much fear of the dreaded zero percent.
