New MDM features coming with mid-March release of iOS 7.1?
posted by Alan F. / Feb 17, 2014, 10:38 PM
When iOS 7.1 does launch, it will met by a large number of iOS 7 users waiting to update. Consider that 82% of iOS users are running iOS 7 while 15% are using iOS 6. iOS 7.1 beta 2 was released in December and included a fix for TouchID and a small repair for iTunes Match. Beta numbers 3 through 5 were sent out in January and included a fix for iCloud account setups, audiobook improvements and a fix to end problems sending messages on iMessage. It also included more natural sounding voices for Siri in Australian and British English, Japanese and Mandarin Chinese. Also rumored to be coming with iOS 7.1 is the iOS in the Car application, a version of iOS made for automobiles.
We could be less than a month away until the official release of iOS 7.1. Getting excited yet?

This article does not clarify if this will be good for the iOS 7 consumer.

It has no effect on most consumers because their devices aren't enrolled in an MDM program. However, those who work for a government branch, business, or are students where mobile devices are given to them are going to be effected. It doesn't mention the consumers because it has nothing to do with them.

What is with all this software disabling cameras? Too much Big Brother going on with all of that.

It's for government agencies that look at classifies info and they don't want anybody trying to record or take pics of stuff. Things like this already exist. Since a lot of government agencies use blackberry's that's why they would release a verizon of the bold with a camera and one without so the people in the government don't take pics with their phones.

That has nothing to do with MDMs. I dont think any of you understand what that means. I am a high school student whose school gives every student an iPad. Our devices are enrolled in an MDM so that they can push applications and books straight to an iPad, block inappropriate media, and "focus" or restrict us to a single app.

If a company is supplying iPhones/iPads to its employees it's reasonable to expect them to have some control over their use (or misuse). If you work at a large company or university with an IT department, you can hardly expect open access to the internet on company PCs. Employees have login names, passwords, client machines running restricted Windows versions. Internet usage is monitored. Big Brother or We're-Paying-You-to-Work-so-Get-Off-Facebook?

" it will met by a large number of iOS 7 users waiting to update. Consider that 82% of iOS users are running iOS 7". I don't know about that seeing how a lot of those 82%'ers are jailbroke and will want to keep it. Just sayin'
