iOS7 to become educational friendly but will it be enough?
The question will yet to be seen if this iOS 7 update will be enough on a move in the right direction to make the iPad educationally friendly. This has been one of the biggest criticism of the iPads is there functionality when it comes to MDM Management and how to set them up to work well when not done in a 1 to 1 environment. Here is the information off of Apples website. Hopefully we will see soon. It would have been nice if this had been released prior to summer when we are all busy doing the system upgrades to be ready for the fall start of school.
iOS 7 provides powerful new ways to configure and deploy devices across institutions and features to help schools purchase, distribute and manage apps with ease. App Store license management, seamless enrollment in mobile device management (MDM) and single sign on are just some of the capabilities in iOS 7 that make it ideal for education.
