Apple reveals that the technical maintenance service uses Touch ID to authorize release documents, which has saved around 13 million minutes. For in-flight and gate check attendants, custom apps promote a faster boarding process and serve as a direct line for its customers. Pilots use the Skypath app to map their flights for less turbulence and air traffic. Also, the built-in accelerometer in iPads provides real-time turbulence data.

United Airlines lead line technician Mansur Zia says that the iPad is an essential product that brings the whole airline together.
