Why Apple Innovation Requires Mobile-friendly Sites
On September 9, Apple announced the release of its newest iPhones— the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus— which are scheduled to hit retailers on the 19th. This latest launch by Apple is part of an on-going trend of the recent years to provide consumers with bigger, better and faster smart phones. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will include a number of new features Apple fanatics have long dreamed for.
Even though the new iPhones have larger, thinner and sleeker designs, they are much more powerful and efficient than previous models. New models have stunning Retina HD display, contain the new iSight camera which captures multiple clear pictures and videos at once, run on the new powerful A8 chip, contain greater security and allow for faster WiFi and LTE connectivity.
Along with the new iPhones, Apple also revealed new technology, Apple Pay along with the much anticipated Apple Watch. Apple Pay is designed to provide an easy and very secure way for people to pay for their goods and bills either online or in stores. Apple has partnered with major credit and debit card companies, banks, apps and retail stores worldwide to create this new and convenient checkout system. The Apple Watch, set to be released early next year, will be available in a number of colors and styles. It allows users to read and write emails, check messages, answer calls and even run certain apps. The new Apple Watch is essentially an iPhone you can wear!
These new Apple products prove that technology continues to make the internet even more accessible, and will continue to do so as time progresses. More and more people are turning to their handheld devices to surf the web at all hours of the day. It is important to remember that if your site is not mobile friendly, then it will either not load at all or it will load at a much slower rate and result in distorted and unattractive pages. In either case, you risk losing web traffic because your site is not designed to handle the latest innovative features of the web.
Having a mobile site will ensure your web presence and assist in maintaining informative communication between existing and potential patients. A mobile site will not only enhance your appearance and status on the web, but it will also give you an edge over your competitors. If you want your medical practice to thrive in today’s hi-tech economy, then a mobile site is the way to go.
