Smartphone unboxing ready to use for work in under 4 minutes!
How do we do that?
How much time does a new smartphone cost you?
Have you recently gotten a new smartphone as a Christmas gift or have you gifted one yourself? Then you know the hassle that comes with setting up this new device. Our time is precious and valuable, and that is where mobco comes into play.
In 2010 the apple iPad was released into the market, a device that has penetrated every segment of the market. For many mobile employees this has become the only ‘computer’ they use. And getting those devices under control was a challenge, that was the start of mobco!
Getting a new device into production can easily take you half a day. We reduce this time to just 4 minutes without intervention from IT or the end user. Mobco sets up an integration between the company network, cloud services and the management platform. This initial setup is what makes it possible to reduce the time needed to deploy your device into production. Not only for the initial devices, but for all future devices as well. Automating this platform will solve most issues itself, resulting into savings on the helpdesk!
A typical integration of a management platform only takes a couple of days. Which is a small investment that can be earned back fast rolling out new devices. But most important of all is the satisfaction of your employees. Everything works out-of-the-box and there are no annoying passwords.
This video shows just how quick your employee would be able to set up his/her own device. Without any intervention from the IT department.
Setting up a mobile workforce can be challenging, certainly if your organization is used to work from a traditional office location. Having the correct tools implemented, makes the move towards mobile work simpler.
Employees use a lot of different systems and devices in their everyday work, and a remote workforce can only be empowered if these can be accessed from any location.
A new generation of Mac in a familiar packaging and with an established set of management controls. The new MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini are powered by M1, Apple’s breakthrough chip for the Mac.
This brings power, efficiency and autonomy to a platform we know how to integrate into your business.
With M1 your employees can work on the go, all day long, without charging!
Having already introduced Apple Silicon during the virtual WWDC earlier this year, Apple officially launched the new M1-chip during its ‘One More Thing’ event.
We’re familiar to Apple’s own chip in the iPhone- and iPad ranges, as they’ve been doing for quite some time now. By bringing its own chip to Mac, Apple is now fully independent from other vendors in the production of its hardware portfolio.
By far the most powerful chip Apple has ever made, M1 transforms the Mac experience. With its industry-leading performance per watt, together with macOS Big Sur, M1 delivers up to 3.5x faster CPU, up to 6x faster GPU, up to 15x faster machine learning capabilities, and battery life up to 2x longer than before.
And with M1 and Big Sur, users get access to the biggest collection of apps ever for Mac. With amazing performance and remarkable new features, the new lineup of M1-powered Macs are an incredible value.
MacBook Air: thin and light powerhouse
MacBook Air is Apple’s most popular Mac and the world’s best-selling 13-inch notebook. With the M1 chip, the powerful 8-core CPU performs up to 3.5x faster than the previous generation. With up to an 8-core GPU, graphics are up to 5x faster, the biggest leap ever for MacBook Air.
Did you know? The M1 is faster than the chips in 98 percent of PC laptops sold in the past year.
With the industry-leading power efficiency of M1, MacBook Air also delivers this performance in a fanless design, which means no matter what users are doing, it remains completely silent. And the new MacBook Air features extraordinary battery life, with up to 15 hours of wireless web browsing and up to 18 hours of video playback — the longest battery life ever on a MacBook Air.
With its sleek wedge-shaped design, stunning Retina display, Magic Keyboard, and astonishing level of performance thanks to M1, the new MacBook Air once again redefines what a thin and light notebook can do.
13-inch MacBook Pro: Even more powerful and even more pro
The 13-inch MacBook Pro is Apple’s most popular pro notebook. With the M1 chip and Big Sur, the 13-inch MacBook Pro becomes even more powerful and even more pro. The 8-core CPU, when paired with the MacBook Pro’s active cooling system, is up to 2.8x faster than the previous generation. And with M1, the 13-inch MacBook Pro is up to 3x faster than the best-selling Windows laptop in its class. With up to 17 hours of wireless web browsing and up to a staggering 20 hours of video playback, MacBook Pro delivers up to twice the battery life of the previous generation and the longest battery life ever on a Mac.
With its amazing performance and unbelievable battery life, combined with its gorgeous Retina display, Magic Keyboard, and compact design, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is the ultimate expression of what the M1 chip can do.
Mac mini: Staggering performance and an ultracompact design
Mac mini is Apple’s most versatile computer, and now with M1, it packs a staggering amount of performance and incredible new features in such a compact design. M1 brings an 8-core CPU with up to 3x faster performance than the previous generation, dramatically accelerating demanding workloads. An 8-core GPU delivers up to a massive 6x increase in graphics performance, allowing Mac mini to tackle performance-intensive tasks like complex 3D rendering with ease.
Mac mini also features an advanced thermal design to sustain its breakthrough performance while staying cool and quiet, support for up to two displays including Apple’s Pro Display XDR in full 6K resolution, and Wi-Fi 6 for faster wireless performance and the Secure Enclave in M1 for best-in-class security.
With M1 and Big Sur, Mac mini represents a massive shift in what an ultrasmall desktop can do.
Far more versatile and far more capable than ever, Mac mini is now available in our online store for just € 660,33.
October 13, 2020, Apple invited the world to Apple Park to unveil its new iPhone 12 lineup.
The 12 series include the very first 5G-ready iPhones enabling a whole new mobile experience with better connectivity and higher speeds.
At the center of the flagship devices sits a new silicon: the A14 Bionic. Faster and more energy efficient than ever before.
The 5G-readiness combined with the ultra fast A14 Bionic creates high capacity computing platform connected to ‘everything’ at the highest possible speeds.
With the Lidar sensor, that maps the real world in three dimensions, new business opportunities arise in many different domains. The sensor set is completed with a new and improved camera set. The iPhone 12 ‘sees’ everything.
The iPhone 12 also ‘shows’ everything through its innovative Super Retina XDR Display. The high resolution and dynamic screen enables stunning graphics performance, increasing user adoption within the business.
All displays are equipped with a Ceramic Shield, drastically increasing durability. With a four times better drop performance, display repairs within your organization will also ‘drop’, freeing up budgets for what really matters.
The new MagSafe feature of the iPhone 12 enables external accessories to easily snap into place and attach to the smartphone. At time of launch there are several accessories available, including a MagSafe cover and MagSafe Wallet to store credit cards. The initial purpose of the MagSafe connection is to supercharge the iPhone wireless, that requires a perfectly aligned MagSafe charging pad, hence the magnets.
Good to know the iPhone 12 series doesn’t come with a charger or EarPods. This reduces the environmental impact.
The iPhone ships with only a USB-C to Lightning cable.
The iPhone 12 series includes 4 models, the based model features a screen size of 5.4″, the iPhone 12 Pro Max goes up to 6,7″.
In the below graphic you can see a comparison between the new iPhone 12 Mini, the current iPhone SE 2e Gen and previous iPhone SE 1e Gen. The overall device size has decreased compared to the iPhone SE 2e Gen and the screen size increased dramatically compared to all previous SE models.
Although there is an important price difference, we do expect to see the iPhone 12 Mini taking an important market share in business due the top performance of the A14 Bionic and 5G platform.
All models can be ordered at mobco with a starting price of 669Euro for the base model
The iPhone 12 comes in 5 colours and houses 64, 128 or 256GB of memory. The display size of the iPhone 12 Mini is 5.4″ and 6.1″ for the iPhone 12 available mid November.
The iPhone 12 Pro is available in 4 colours and doubles the memory capacity starting at 128GB up to 512GB.
Available now at mobco!

October 2010, that’s when our mobile journey started!
A few months before the Apple iPad was officially launched, and along with the iPhone and a Google initiative called Android version Eclair, we witnessed the start of one of the biggest changes in IT history.
mobco was founded with one clear focus and mission: we wanted to help our enterprise customers to support these new devices for work.
We’ve been mobilising your business since 2010!
We look back at a successful journey where we delivered true added value to hundreds of enterprise and public customers. Thousands of employees enjoyed seamless enrolment of their new devices, got rid of endless password changes and weren’t even aware of the fact that they were using the most advanced tunneling technology to access internal resources on the go.
The mobco team grew over the years but kept true to its initial mission: put expertise at the service of our customers. Along with the team, we also enlarged our portfolio of products and added support for more mobile device management platforms, leading mobile security providers, productivity apps and hardware to the list in 2017.
As top tier Apple Authorised Reseller and Samsung Reseller we can now state we have a complete portfolio for the mobile workplace, or should we say ‘modern workplace’?
As founding member of the Enterprise Mobility Expert Alliance we represent Belgium and Luxemburg in this pan-European initiative. Together with our peer alliance members we had front row seats in the spectacle called “digital transformation” and saw the huge impact on the workplace.
Having access to all your corporate data on the go, on any device, anywhere and anytime, seems so obvious today. We’re very proud to have contributed to this fact and helped out so many enterprises and public institutions in taking the next step in the modern workplace.
In 2020 we remain true to our initial mission and put our expertise at the service of our customers combined with premium hardware, leading software and more…
Over the last years we have been building a platform with only one mission: to provide the best possible employee experience ever! It’s a development that translates our expertise and experience into a cloud service we are launching this year, called Workplace Self Service.
The Workplace Self Service is a next level platform that allows your employees to order and organise their workplace, the way they like it, with no impact on the current IT structure.
While remaining true to our initial focus and mission, we are now ready for the next episode!
Founding mobco in 2010 was the best idea ever, but building it out into this BeLux company as it is now, would not have been possible alone.
I would like to thank the entire mobco team that helped building out the company during the last decade: thank you for your continued support and expertise!
I would also like to thank our business partners who believe in our mission and help us develop new business opportunities!
Special thanks to our customers for choosing our company as a guide in managing, transforming and optimizing their workplace projects!
Looking forward to lift the employee experience to the next level!
As a birthday present we would like to offer you for free our white paper: “The three pillars of the modern workplace”.
Based on our 10 years in business we share our “mobile lessons learned” and how these now impact the entire workplace.
If we triggered your attention or you want to learn more about a specific topic, don’t hesitate to leave your contact details below!
In normal times, Apple‘s September gathering hosts the launch of its newest iPhones. Yesterday however, it was Apple Watch’s and iPad’s turn to take center stage.
“Time flies”, the events title might have already given it away… Apple Watch has revolutionized what a watch can do. Checking your messages and calendar on the road, opening your office doors and even unlocking your MacBook. Think of the time saved…
All detailed information on the new releases of hardware and OS can be found in our updated white paper “2020 Apple for Enterprise”.
With the new Watch Series 6 (equipped with the new S6-chip and up to 20% faster than Series 5), Apple launches a new powerful health sensor called “Blood Oxygen”, which provides you a key measurement on your overall wellbeing. Nice and handy in these Covid-times.
Next to this, the new Watch SE combines the most popular features of the Series 6 with an affordable pricing. It’s packed with S5-chips, a huge upgrade compared to the Series 3. With the cellular models you can make calls and messages without your iPhone.
These items will be available on our store as of this Friday.
€ 247,11 for the Watch SE
€ 354,44 for the Watch Series 6
Time flies indeed. It’s been 10 years since the first iPad was shipped AND the birth of mobco (more on that later this year!).
The new iPad 8th generation packs the A12 Bionic chip, a real powerhouse. 40% faster CPU and 2 times faster GPU compared to the previous version are just a few of the features making it:
– 2 times faster than the most popular Windows laptop
– 3 times faster than the most popular Android tablet
– 6 times faster than the most popular Chromebook
We already stated it in a previous blog: your next computer is not a computer.
The A12 Bionic being a powerhouse, we can state that the A14 Bionic is a real war horse.
Making its debut in the new iPad Air, it’s the first to use 5 nanometer sized transistor. That’s 11.8 billion (!) transistors in this processor, offering a great performance at lower power.
With the newly designed Touch ID on the top button, all of the known safety features of Touch ID are now packed in the smallest authenticator sensor available. Fast, easy and secure.
The new iPad Air also supports the new Magic Keyboard enabling a touch pad to better navigate your corporate apps.
These items will be available on our store as of beginning of next month.
€ 321,49 for the iPad 8th generation
€ 552,89 for the new iPad Air
With the launch of iOS 14, iPadOS 14, WatchOS 7 and tvOS14 as of today, you can combine all this new hardware with the new features available in the new software releases.
Continuous learning is one of the cornerstones of our strategy and success.
We are committed to offer all our employees at least 20 days a year to spend on study, courses, certifications.
