Comment: 2012/11/12 - Apple iOS 6 and Restricted
Whilst Apple have made significant improvements to iOS6 (and undoubtedly will continue to do so), it strikes me that any organisation that adopts iOS for Restricted needs to be fairly open to risk. The official evaluation lists a number of residual risks, some of which I consider to be quite significant. There are other issues relating to the management of the device that could have a security knock-on effect too.
I suspect that Apple will probably nail it in the next release, however it still remains a concern that they have had their FIPS140 evaluation sitting at "Review Pending" for almost 2 years.
