Improvements are promised in three areas: Clients will need to be updated to use the new features.
Apple has already announced that they will support EAS 16 in their i OS 9 release.
Major vendors like Apple are no doubt pleased that Microsoft has done a fine job of supporting their app store, but they would be less than happy if Microsoft dropped EAS and forced Apple to support a new protocol to connect the i OS email client to Exchange.
Additionally, account settings can be configured in order to ensure corporate emails are securely accessed. Therefore, it is highly recommended to create a separate profile to host only the Exchange Active Sync payload.Given the propensity of mobile clients to update, we’ll soon be in an update frenzy to keep all the clients patched.Speaking of which, I should acknowledge the June 10 announcement that the Outlook clients now support OAuth, Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL), and multi-factor authentication against Office 365 accounts.No news exists whether EAS 16 will be backported to Exchange 2013, which currently runs Version 14.1.The move to version 16 aligns the numbering with the "wave 16" software releases that are currently in development.
