Last week, Bloomberg reported that Apple’s iOS devices were on the short list for mobile devices that would be approved for Pentagon use. This approval would allow the iPad maker to dig in deep for a long-lasting contract with U.S. Military. Today, Bloomberg reported that the Pentagon has officially cleared Apple devices for use on its network.
This approval puts Apple on the same playing field as Samsung and Blackberry, who were both recently approved for military use as well. According to Bloomberg, now that Apple has joined the ranks, this may prompt a three-way fight for the military market.
