In a recent press release, Apple announced a partnership with SAP today to create new iOS software development kits, training academies, and better native iOS apps tailored to user’s needs.
CUPERTINO, CA and WALLDORF, Germany- On the 5th of May, Apple released their plans to partner with SAP to innovate new, more helpful technology for iOS users (especially in light of the issues with the IPad Pro and the most recent iOS update).

SAP and Apple Join Forces to Begin to Support Businesses
These services are expected to help Apple form better understandings of core data and the processes that businesses perform while still taking advantage of key Apple functionalities (like Touch ID, location services, and notifications, says Apple representative Ryan James).
According to the press contact for SAP (Scott Behles), this new update (called SAP Fiori) will take the iOS to another level, providing critical business operations, as well as more robust technology to help new developers better create apps for the software. This includes a completely updated SDK, design language, and academy training (for “Geniuses”) as soon as the end of the year.
