Apple’s iPhone and iPad have been given approval by the US Defense Department, and devices running Apple’s iOS mobile OS can now be used on the US Defense Department’s network.
Apple’s devices which are running iOS 6 have now been approved for the network, and the Defense Department has said that it has approved the Apple iOS 6 Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG).
“Approval of the STIG means that government-issued iOS 6 mobile devices are approved for use when connecting to DOD networks within current mobility pilots or the future mobile device management framework,” the agency said in a statement.
Earlier in the month the US Defense Department also approved BlackBerry’s BlackBerry 10 platform, and Samsung’s devices running the Samsung Knox, which is a new version of Android with enhanced security also received approval.
