When an enterprise decides to make the iPhone the corporate smartphone standard, it will then need to decide whether to select the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S. Rather than waste time trying to determine what's best, let's just make it easy: Choose the iPhone 4S. That device will come with the best signal quality, the most carrier options and the fastest processor. Need any other reasons to choose it?
An increasing number of companies around the globe are starting to adopt Apple products. For many years dating back to the desktop publishing days of the mid-1980s, few companies would buy Apple products in large numbers, unless it was to equip the corporate graphic arts department. But that situation gradually changed as Apple's product line became more diverse and sophisticated. But with the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend that most enterprises are confronting these days, things have changed. These days, it's more common to walk into an office and see an iPad sitting on desks next to a Mac Pro. However, for companies thinking seriously about bringing Apple products into the office, choosing the right products might not be so easy. After all, Apple offers three different iPhones, two different iPads, and enough model options to make it hard for over-worked IT managers to decide which ones are best for their companies' needs. As a result, it might be a good idea to take a close look at Apple's many products and determine which 10 of them are ideal for the office. Remember, not all Apple products are created equal. Choosing the right devices is absolutely imperative for enterprises that want to give employees computers that not only make them productive, but that they will also enjoy using. Check out this slide show to find out which Apple products will work best in the office.
