Apple, IBM release 10 new apps, incorporating analytics and iBeacons

Fred O'Connor | July 22, 2015
The apps use technology like predictive analytics and are for business travelers and mortgage officers, among other professionals.

Safe Site is for the iPhone and 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.

Finally, Field Inspect, an iPad app, lets government inspectors conduct inspections and file findings to the proper agency. An inspector can use the iPad's camera and microphone to document inspections, and the app recommends actions based on data from previous inspections.

IBM and Apple haven't shared many customer details or if the partnership has proven lucrative. One customer is the Japanese government, which is providing iPads outfitted with customized apps to the country's elderly population to help them manage their health. Apple CEO Tim Cook has said he sees the deal with IBM as a way to revive slumping iPad sales.
