The current employment landscape is characterized by a growing demand for flexibility and mobility. Workers are no longer limited to a fixed physical location and there is an increasing demand for profiles capable of adapting to both hybrid work scenarios and environments in which work activity can occur from all types of different locations.
This has caused the need for new tools that allow these employees to carry out their activity in a comfortable and simple way. without affecting your productivity. Among these new tools, devices like the Apple iPad have been presented for years as a winning option and even more so, when, as in the case of the iPad Pro, they are designed to respond to the needs of the most professional users.
And since Steve Jobs introduced the iPad to society more than 13 years ago, what at first was little more than a device for browsing the Internet and consuming audiovisual content, has become one of the best productivity tools, both for those who only need to check their email and use an office suite, as well as for those who do a good part of their work through the video editing, photo retouching or technical project management. And not only. In healthcare, used to maintain electronic medical records (EMR), take notes during consultations, show medical images to patients o access critical information in real time; In the hospitality industry, iPads are used at the front desk to streamline the guest check-in and check-out process; in architecture and construction they have become an essential tool to access plans, annotate digital documents, take photographs in the workplace and collaborate in real time with colleagues and clients…etc.
In recent years, the border between This device and a traditional laptop has become blurred, thanks to features like “Visual Organizer”, which allows you to connect the iPad to an external screen and use it in practically the same way as you would use a laptop. Tools such as Split View or Slide Over improve application management and if we wish, Universal Control makes it easier for us to use the iPad as a second screen for a Mac. On the ground, accessories such as the Magic Keyboard or the Apple Pencil boost our productivity.
But the fact that its use has become popular in companies is also due to two other fundamental characteristics: autonomy and privacy.
In the first case, in addition to being a light and easy to transport device, it is worth highlighting the fact that Apple has worked to optimize both its hardware and software, to maximize its energy efficiency. In fact, iPadOS has been designed to intelligently manage energy and minimize battery consumption when not using specific applications or functions. Thus, a device like the 12.9-inch iPad Pro can offer us an autonomy of more than 10 hours in a body weighing 682 grams, more than enough to get through a workday with flying colors.
On the other hand, it must be taken into account that few companies like Apple insist so much on how important it is to safeguard the privacy of the users. In this area, the company is committed to collecting the least amount of information possible and uses it mainly to improve the user experience, who always maintains a high degree of control over which applications can access their personal data. In addition, the data stored on an iPad is protected by encryption and access to it is protected by a two-factor authentication system.
All of the above, together with other features such as its integration into the Apple ecosystem, the development of all types of applications for various verticals or its easy management through the correct MDM and the possibility of deploying it without contact, have made it one of the tools preferred by companies’ ICT departments.
