iOS® 8 has been an amazing update to Apple’s® already amazing system. This update has some great features not only for the general user, but as a real estate agent, this update was basically made for you!
As a real estate agent myself, I am always on my laptop with my cell phone right next to me. With the new update coupled with the Apple® Yosemite operating system, my life is finally fully linked! When I get either iMessages or texts, they appear on my laptop. From there I can respond to the iMessages or texts directly from my laptop. While this may seem like a small thing to be raving about, the ability to continue working on what I am already working on and being able to respond in one fell swoop is an amazing time saver. I never have to look up from the computer.
What else makes this update awesome? The ability to make and receive phone calls from your computer. Again, this seems like something small and simple, but if you’re like me and just want to be able to click and talk to whoever you want that is calling, this is an amazing feature.
Some other features for the phone make life easier as well when dealing with multiple clients. One of the great things you can now do is respond to individual messages directly from the phones locked screen. By swiping left instead of right, you can reply to any message that you have received. This is a great time saver if you have a quick message to respond to and don’t want to unlock your entire phone eliminating all of your notifications.
While we all know these features weren’t actually made for real estate agents, the ability they have given us to multitask and be more productive while using their platform is amazing. I look forward to seeing what else Apple has to offer in their new renditions over the coming months.
