Apple is making enterprise headway with forthcoming changes in iOS 8, but it still has work to do to satisfy all of IT's needs.
Apple has taken steps to address security and management concerns around its mobile operating system, and even devoted a section of its keynote at the recent Worldwide Developers Conference to the enterprise. In iOS 8, IT will have more options than ever for managing Apple devices .
However, there are still pain points for IT that haven't been addressed. While Apple will beef up its iOS 8 capabilities around AirDrop -- the feature that allows sharing of files over a Wi-Fi connection between Apple devices -- it still falls short for some.
With Windows PCs being the dominant desktop choice for almost 91% of the market share, according to May 2014 data from NetMarketShare.com, Apple has ignored an opportunity for AirDrop-style capabilities between Apple devices and Windows PCs, according to Matt Kosht, an IT director at a utility company in Alaska.
