Apple partnership helps retailers adopt advanced business apps

As for these dedicated iOS practices, Accenture and Apple will co-locate experts in Accenture Digital Studios around the world.

Apple (AAPL) on Tuesday added Accenture (ACN) to its roster of partners to drive iPhone and iPad usage deeper into large businesses and other enterprises.

The partnership will see Accenture exploit the capabilities inherent within iOS as an enterprise mobility platform.

The two companies also plan to address the IoT market, with services featuring new tools templates and predesigned code to help clients take greater advantage of the data from IoT platforms in their iOS apps, putting more power into the hands of workers.

"We believe that businesses have only just begun to scratch the surface of what they can do with our products", Apple CEO Tim Cook said in the statement.

"By combining Accenture's vast digital capabilities and industry expertise with Apple's market leadership in creating products that delight customers, we are in a ideal position to help our clients transform the way they work".

The iPhone 8 launch is just weeks away and while there are plenty of unverified rumours about the new phone, we can be pretty certain that it will be coming with Apple's latest mobile software, iOS 11.

Apple has taken another step closer to cementing its position as a leading player across the enterprise, after striking an iOS partnership with Accenture.

"While not present in the most recent watchOS 4 beta, the iconography is likely incorporated in iOS 11 for reviewing Apple Watch-tracked activities on a paired iPhone", the website said. Walmart, for example, plans to train as many as 225,000 employees to use iPads by the end of the year and expects to deploy over 19,000 of those devices across its US locations.
