iPhone To Be Updated For Enterprise

The first announcement at today’s special press conference concerns using the iPhone for enterprise. So, basically, it means a new way to connect to a Microsoft Exchange server. Apple has licensed ActiveSync, the technology that allows mobile devices to do all sorts of things with Exchange. So, soon iPhone users will be able to get Exchange email pushed to their iPhone, and also sync other data including contacts and calendars.
Also implemented will be the all-important “wipe” feature. This means if your phone gets lost or stolen, the mail, contacts and calendar data from Exchange can be remotely wiped from it to protect your information.
