3 Things that Make Apple the Only Tech You Need While Traveling

Apple was the first company to create a digital color camera, and they’ve continued to build an empire of the most-sought-after digital devices. Apple products appeal to such a large array of people because they offer products with features that are all-inclusive. From their platform’s Brinks-like strong security to their location-based features for a customized experience, Apple tech gives you everything you’ll want or need while traipsing about, wherever you go.

iBeacon Localization

Business or pleasure; it doesn’t matter whether you’re planning a backpacking adventure through Europe or going to a conference in Japan, Apple mobile iOS offers a totally custom experience based on your locale. This is made possible with a combination of technologies, specifically iBeacon and RSSI. iBeacon is now a standard Apple technology that allows mobile applications to ‘listen’ for signals from beacons in the real world, and react to them; ultimately, this means the mobile device can understand their location on a micro-local scale and deliver content that is very specific to users based on that location. The iBeacon Bluetooth technology is perhaps the most invaluable feature in modern devices, especially when combined with Apple’s RSSI. RSSI, or Received Signal Strength Indicator, is a technological measurement of how well your mobile can ‘hear’ a signal from access points or a router.


Accurate RSSI is important, as location-based information rely on its accuracy. The implementation of this tech in your mobile means you’ll be privy to info on all the nearby restaurants, shows, events, and everything else you could need or want; vital for when you’re in an unfamiliar place. Consider your Apple mobile device your personal tour guide on vaycay or otherwise.

Fort Knox Security

Vacation or not, traveling can be a bit stressful at times. Data and device security is one less thing you’ll have to worry about when you’re taking along your Apple device. iOS and macOS are built using a UNIX foundation, which makes them stable and secure. Information is encrypted at a system-level, and regular software updates are always rolling out improved security features. So, no matter where you go, you don’t need to fret about security risks from unseen threats in a foreign environment.

Cross-Device Use

Sure, all Apple devices have a superior level of security, but you may not have the carry-on space for all of them. No worries, you don’t need to. Apple devices work together, providing a seamless use across all of them. That means you can start a project on one and pick it up on another. Airdrop also enables you to send important files from one device to another, so you always have what you need on whichever device you prefer to take with you.

The Bottom Line

To sum up, if you’re a techie that loves to travel, you’re best served with Apple’s range of mobile devices. Traveling in this century means staying connected to home even while experiencing wanderlust, and Apple gives you the best means to do that- and so much more.
