iPad, Mac Use Growing in Higher Ed

March 09, 2017

According to the survey, the top drivers of Apple device use in higher ed include user preference (cited by 64 percent of respondents), better security (51 percent), less maintenance (45 percent) and Apple's app ecosystem (40 percent). IT pros told a similar story last year: JAMF's 2015 survey cited "Apple's rich app ecosystem, overall appeal and user preference, native security features, and the reduction of overall costs associated with device maintenance" as the secrets behind its success in higher ed.
