The two companies will launch tools for iPhone and iPad that unlock the capabilities of the platform, enabling organisations to migrate their existing legacy apps to iOS, connect back end systems and IoT integration technologies to help Accenture's clients create more immersive experiences for end-users.

"Starting 10 years ago with iPhone, and then with iPad, Apple has been transforming how work gets done, yet we believe that businesses have only just begun to scratch the surface of what they can do with our products," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO.

"Both Apple and Accenture are leaders in building incredible user experiences and together we can continue to truly modernise how businesses work through amazing solutions that take advantage of the incredible capabilities of Apple's technologies."

The tools will combine Apple's app development expertise including visual and experience designers, programmers, data architects and scientists, and hardware and software designers with Accenture's digital and analytics capabilities to create truly innovative apps.
