Apple's iOS Security Technical Implementation Guide is a methodology of Apple for standardized secure installation and maintenance of software and hardware.

The DISA, which is the United States Department of Defense (DoD) combat support agency composed of military, federal civilians, and contractors, offers information technology, and communications in order to support the president, vices president, secretary of defense, the military services, the combatant commands, individual or system contributing to the defense of the United States, etc.

The Defense Information Systems Network of DISA contains many network services, including Data, Voice, Video, Messaging, Wireless, Satellite, etc. These network services support diverse telecommunication requirements for organizations focused on.

Approved by the U.S DISA, Apple's iOS 6 could better experience the network services, which in turns would benefit its users. Recently, Apple has released the latest update of its iOS 6, the iOS 6.1.4, for iPhone 5. Users can download and update this new iOS though iTunes or wirelessly.

Besides Apple's iOS devices, DISA has also approved Black Berry 10 smart phones, Samsung Electronics' Knox and PlayBook tablets on its networks earlier this month. Lt. Col. Damier Pickart, a DoD spokesman said that a decision on Apple's iOS was expected to be taken a few weeks ago.
