September 19 was launch day for Apple iPhone fans and users. If you preordered a new iPhone you should have received it by now, and the iPhone 11 ships with a new operating system. Today is also great for those that don’t upgrade their phones, because we can get a software update. This software update is the latest and greatest iOS ever created, iOS 13. I realized that most of the new features will help me and other salespeople achieve more success. The new iOS 13 is designed for salespeople.
I had a little head start on some users, because I’ve been using the public beta versions for a couple of months. I haven’t even tapped into all of the new features yet and I absolutely love this new iOS! I really think it will be a great tool for all salespeople. I’ve outlined my reasons why below, or you can watch me break them down on the JSSTube video below.
4 Reasons Why iOS 13 is Designed for Salespeople
1. Faster access to apps. Sales is a fast paced industry and I’m always wanting to do things faster and more efficiently. A new storage system on iOS 13 makes the apps be up to 50% less stored space. That means they load faster, and you can access the information you need in a more timely manor.
2. Email is not dead! The Apple mail app has displays the sender, subject, and first few characters of the email in the email list view. Now when you open emails the subject line is bigger and bolder. For salespeople it’s important to make the subject worthy of the viewers time. There will now be more eyeballs on those subject lines.
3. Bye, bye 3D Touch. 3D Touch is gone, but we now have haptic touch. It reveals a menu on most apps with a long press. You can begin a new message, jump into a recent conversation, or create a new event on your calendar. There are many great uses of haptic touch. Most of my favorite apps have menus already and I’m sure more will come.
4. iMessage/Memoji updates. The Memoji is getting more personalized with updates to more hairstyles and accessories including makeup. Also Memoji stickers are available that mirror the most popular emojis. This is great for salespeople to send these personalized and customized communication tools for client follow up.
These are only the first features that have jumped out to me in my first couple of weeks using the software. I could also talk about the new CarPlay, swipe keyboard, or onboard photo/video editing. There’s so many great features in this iOS update that I find find something almost every day. Salespeople use their phones for so many daily tasks these updates will immediately start impacting our business. iOS 13 was designed for salespeople! It will help you succeed more in sales and increase your commission and income. The only question left is why haven’t you upgraded already?
Please reach out with any questions you have about the features I mentioned or anything else in iOS 13. We can grow our business even more with these excellent tools.
