  • Hey small business! There may be an Apple in your future

    Apple announced that Apple business essentials is now available- as they state on the post:

    The complete solution begins with simple employee onboarding, allowing a small business to easily configure, deploy, and manage Apple products from anywhere. With the Collections feature, groups of apps can be delivered to employees or teams, and settings can be automatically pushed to devices, such as VPN configurations, Wi-Fi passwords, and more.

    I thought it was interesting…

    Managed Apple IDs can be created by federating with Microsoft Azure Active Directory and, coming later this spring, with Google Workspace identity services, allowing employees to log in to their device with a single business username and password.

    As we move to where the browser is more and more where are key applications are (as in they are hosted on a cloud) this may be the wave of the future. Also keep in mind that if you still do need a Windows machine there are hosted/virtual machines either offered by private firms, or by Microsoft themselves.
