Sean Delph is a longtime technology executive who engages with services provider Delcom Group as sales director. Also a systems integration consultant, Sean Delph has a focus on optimizing Apple products functionality for his clients.

With the release of iPhone 7, improvements in software have been lauded as a key reason for purchasing a new device. One area of iOS 10 focus has been Messages, which is completely revamped to give Facebook Messenger competition in the social communication sphere. With Messages now open to developers, the platform promises to provide users with a more interactive experience. Already, companies such as Nintendo have released special stickers in support of mobile game launches and other brand campaigns.

Another area of significant improvement in iOS 10 centers on Apple Maps, which has reached parity with Google Maps, and seamlessly integrates with public transportation information in many cities. As with Messages, Apple has opened its Maps application to developers, so that extras such as geolocated business reviews and ride-sharing services are already appearing.

A respected technology executive, Sean Delph serves as sales director with Delcom Group. Sean Delph provides client-tailored custom audio-visual technology solutions, and has particular experience in Apple products and systems integration. One area in which Apple has made significant strides is in allowing system wide permissions for third party messaging apps and Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP).

Geared toward mobile devices, this represents a major improvement because it now enables calls made through VOIP systems such as Skype, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp to be handled as if they were native calls.

iOS 10 also has analytics in place that recall which apps are used to contact specific people and set that VOIP channel as default. This has the potential to solve the issues encountered involving having to remember which VOIP is used for each friend or contact.

In addition, incoming VoIP calls will ring and can be answered in the same way as calls within the native phone app are. Messages left with missed calls will have the contents transcribed, such that they can easily be read and responded to. These improvements also extend to the workplace through a new Apple and Cisco partnership that benefits remote workers and businesses that must coordinate their activities.
