Apple and GE (General Electric) today announced a new partnership to build enterprise ‘industrial’ apps for the iOS platform. This includes a new development SDK focused on the Internet of Things.
Tim Cook said GE is an “ideal partner with a rich history of innovation”. GE will make apps for itself and its business clients, and deploy iPhones and iPad as standard across the organization.
Apple has partnered with several high profile companies to deliver iOS apps for enterprise, as it attempts to penetrate iPad deeper into the enterprise.
