Apple and GE have inked a partnership to bring industrial apps based on Predix, GE’s industrial Internet of Things (IoT) platform, to iOS. The two companies also unveiled a Predix software development kit (SDK) for iOS.

In collaboration with Apple, GE is developing apps for both internal use and its customers, said the companies in a statement.

As part of the collaboration, GE will standardize on iPhone and iPad for mobile devices and also promote Mac as a choice for its global workforce of more than 330,000 employees. Apple will promote GE’s Predix as the industrial IoT analytics platform of choice to its customers and developers.
