Use of iPhones and iPads approved by the Pentagon

The Department of Defense in a statement issued on Friday has said that it has approved the use of Apple devices on its networks. Apple now joins the ranks of Samsung and Blackberry in the list of devices which the Pentagon classifies as secure enough to be used by its employees. Only iPhones and iPads running iOS 6 fit the bill as of now.

The Pentagon’s decision to give workers more options when choosing a workplace smartphone reflects a larger trend in the business market, as more companies let employees use the same devices at home and in the office. That change has been bad news for BlackBerry — formerly Research in Motion — which has kept its hold on the business and government smartphone market despite losses in the general consumer market.
