We LOVE iPad & iPhone- for Business and Home

iPad has changed the way people work, play, watch, learn and communicate. With each new version, it's become an essential part of people's lives. iPad has been a long-standing, concrete figure in our business as well as our home.

Before iPad and iPhone:

  • Lacked real-time information at the front line
  • Relied on information from disparate sources
  • More reactive than proactive due to missing data
  • Retrieving printed documentation could take days

At Pure iTek, we are pros at iPad integration. As iOS evolves we deploy software updates and new functions to multiple generations of iOS because we know it's important to protect your investment in iPad and iPhone while productivity is uninterrupted. Pure iTek makes iOS deployment simple, fast and scaleable.

In Action with iPad and iPhone:

  • Streamlines records management and reduces costs
  • Enables teams to be proactive, rather than reactive
  • Apps optimize resource allocation and operations
  • Delivers integrated data at the front line
  • Paperless workflow streamlines office administration

The iPad Air 2 is the biggest redesign to iPad since the original iPad. It's incredibly thin, light and filled with amazing features, making it more capable than ever before. It truly represents the power of lightness.

Everything looks amazing on iPad Air 2.

  • Integrated hardware and software
  • Comprehensive security
  • Simple, scaleable deployment
  • Powerful app platform

If you have an iPad rollout Pure iTek can take over using Mobile Device Management (MDM). This allows us to seamlessly manage devices without impacting the user experience because these controls are transparent to the user.

Why You Should Passcode Protect Your iPhone

Protect your data.

Protect your data.

The answer is simple - to protect your data.

There is a bug that can bypass security in iOS 7. This bug allows anyone to disable Find My iPhone and bypass Activation Lock without a passcode. Disabling efforts don't always work and it's difficult to complete, but if someone does steal your iPhone, or if you lose your iPhone all your data can be compromised. The bug is irrelevant so long as your iPhone is passcode protected.

 So to be secure, put a passcode on your iPhone and have a great weekend!


Privacy settings that you should enable on your iPhone and iPad

Privacy Settings that you should enable on your iPhone and iPad 

Apple hides its System Services settings all the way down at the bottom of the Privacy > Location Services panel. If you've owned your iPhone for more than a few months you'll have dozens (if not hundreds) of app lists on this screen, making it a very long scroll. If you actually make it to the bottom of the list (most people don't) you'll see the fabled System Services setting and the explanation of what that little purple arrow icons means. 

Learn this screen and commit the meanings of the three little arrow icons to memory. Then notice when they appear in the top right of your iOS menu bar and come back to Settings > Privacy > Location Services to see which apps are using your location data. Audit this screen frequently to disable location access for apps that don't need it. 

Then touch System Services to reveal the most important privacy settings on your iPhone or iPad.

Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services

I recommend turning OFF the following:

Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Diagnostics & Usage

The Diagnostics & Usage setting monitors everything you do on your iPhone and "anonymously" sends it to Apple for "improving iOS."  If that option is on you're basically giving Apple your permission to monitor and record everything you do on your device.

Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations

Frequent Locations is equally bad, if not more so.

Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Location-Based iAds

iAds allows the company – and their "partners and licensees" – to "collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Apple computer or device." 

You should also turn ON "Limit Ad Tracking" here:

Settings > Privacy > Advertising

Lastly, you should turn ON:

Settings > Safari > Do Not Track 

Apple's one of the few companies that still supports the aging Do Not Track standard in its mobile Web browser.
