From saving time and money, to streamlining communication in your workplace, Apple technology helps move your businesses forward – encouraging growth every step of the way. At Sync, we want to help your business realise the right device to steer your team closer to your goals.
Why scaling businesses choose Apple
We’re aware that not all businesses start off in the same place. That’s why it’s important to take the time to understandeach business on an individual level. We do this by considering company workflows. We’ll discuss what it is that you want to achieve with your business, and what steps you’re taking towards those goals right now.
Bringing Apple technology in to your organisation can help your staff thrive; enhancing workflows and improvingproductivity. There are now more tools than ever before to help support your organisation, from iCloud to AppleCare+. And at Sync, we offer a range of solutions to suit every business.

Apple devices are part of a powerfulecosystem, which includes apps, cloud services, and collaboration tools.
Low cost of ownership
With built-in productivity & creativity suites,and a host of security features, Apple devices help your business to save on additional licence costs.
Productivity & Creativity
When it comes to getting the most out of the working day, Apple has you covered. Alongside the over 235,000 business apps available, programmes such as Microsoft 365 are available on iPad, iPhone and Mac. This means that even those who are more accustomed to other devices are able to easily acclimatise to Apple.
Apple devices work together, creating the ultimate tech estate for your team to work with and build upon. Use AirDrop to share files with the touch of a button, or integrate Sidecar into your workflows to maximise your workspace. The possibilities for businesses are endless with Apple devices at their fingertips.
These include: Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iMovie, GarageBand, and so many more… Everything you could need to unleash your creativity and keep your team moving throughout the day.
iCloud & iCloud+
When you purchase an iPad, iPhone, or Mac, you are invited to create a free iCloud account. Your iCloud account gives you a central cloud hub, storing and syncing your data, including email, contacts, calendars, and even documents. Using the collaboration tools in Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, you can also collaborate with colleagues and customers on documents and proposals.
With iCloud+, businesses can benefit from features such as custom email domains and private relay, all from just £0.79 a month!* These features include:
Custom Email Domain: personalise your iCloud Mail email address with a custom domain name. You can invite your family members to use the same domain with their iCloud Mail accounts.
iCloud Private Relay: Private Relay (beta) is an internet privacy service that hides your IP address in Safari and protects your unencrypted traffic. When it is on, you can browse the web in a more secure and private way.
Hide My Email: create unique, random email addresses that forward to your personal inbox so you can receive email without having to share your personal email address.
HomeKit Secure Video: connect your home security cameras in the Home app to record your footage and view it from anywhere, while keeping it private and secure.
With AppleCare+ you’ll get the best support, whenever you need it. From set-up, to repairs, to software troubleshooting. Because Apple makes the hardware, the operating system, and many applications, Apple products are truly integrated systems.
And only AppleCare products give you one-stop service and support from Apple experts, so most issues can be resolved in a single call.
Think of AppleCare as the IT department for small businesses that don’t have an IT department.
You don’t need to be a big business to need big help from time to time. AppleCare+ helps keep your small business running smoothly with Apple-certified service, 24/7 priority access to technical support, coverage for up to two incidents of accidental damage, and battery service coverage.
Help isn’t on the way — it’s already here⁺.
