Apple, IBM develop location-based apps

US: Apple and IBM are collaborating to develop mobile apps for enterprises. The apps will make use of predictive analytics and iBeacons. Let’s take the example of Travel Track app, which will works on the iPhone and Apple Watch, gives business travelers their itinerary. The app will provide time and location-based push notifications on items like meeting times and when a flight starts boarding. Another app, called Safe Site, lets people at job sites report unsafe working conditions. The app uses iBeacons to notify workers when they're approaching a reported work site hazard. In total, the partnership has yielded 10 new apps, which will come out in December.
