Chances are, if you're reading this then you already know what iPods and iPhones are, and ITR are proud to offer them for hire. These products are a phenomena that have been hugely popular since the introduction of the first iPod in 2001. Ranking as one of the most successful digital devices of all time, iPods are primarily entertainment systems used for storing music, video and image files for playback wherever you are.
Due to their accessibility and marketing, manufacturers Apple are the industry leaders in both the smartphone and media player markets, and the company is currently worth an estimated $1 trillion.
The first iPhone was released in 2007 and received similar success rates to the iPod. Offering a series of applications, iPhones have a number of uses including media playback just like the iPod, along with the ability to make calls, texts and more.
These devices have led the digital revolution, making Apple’s technology useful and fashionable across the world. iPhones have even changed the way that people use their mobile phones and are now an invaluable business device, almost like a modern day PDA. Many business people use iPhones to schedule meetings, contact customers and clients, or to capture data through specifically designed apps.
ITR offer a wide range of iPods and iPhones to our customers. Whether you want an iPod for data capture apps, or iPhones for an entire team to stay in contact, we have options and models available to suit everyone’s needs.How can they be used?
The potential uses of iPhones and iPods are endless. Running off Apple’s own operating system iOS 8, they can support a series of media players and apps of all varieties, with the latter opening up a wide range of opportunities. The App Store is a huge online store filled with third party and Apple-designed apps, there are programs that can do nearly everything. From organising company finances, arranging meetings, to booking travel tickets and social media, the possibilities are endless.
These devices also work seamlessly with other Apple products such as Apple TV, Macbooks, iMac and Mac Pro, but also with other non-Apple computers. When it comes to managing the iPods and iPhones, it can easily be done through the iTunes software package that is freely available online. Allowing you to sync your device’s video and music files, while also backing up all the device’s content to your computer.
A key distinction between these two devices is that the iPhone is primarily a phone. This means that you will be required to get a sim card from a provider in a monthly or pay as you go contract. Data usage, call and text allowance will be based on the contract you choose, and will be an extra cost on top of the iPhone.
These Apple devices are perfect for businesses users that are always on the go. They provide quick access to emails and even allow you to check in with the office. Furthermore, they can tether other devices to the internet, meaning you can access the internet on your laptop out and about without a wi-fi connection- perfect for a public facing stall. With so many uses, many find it hard to imagine their working life without an iPhone after switching.What models are available for rental?
