Apple announces iOS 9: Here are some enterprise-specific resources

No votes yet

Apple today announced the next version of iOS — iOS 9 — at it's annual Worldwide Developers Conference. There's a lot of info posted on the usual news sites covering the marquee features. But there's also some great info available to the public, if you can find it. Never fear; I've found it for you.

(There's much more available if you are a member of the relaunched Apple Developer Program. Those are still under NDA so we won't be discussing them here.)

The public release notes contain a line I found to be quite interesting:

Quote:

MDM

Known Issue
The AvailableOSUpdates MDM command fails on unsupervised devices as an unknown command. The command succeeds only on supervised DEP-enrolled devices.

Does that mean MDM will be able to manage iOS updates with iOS 9? One can hope.

Of course if you are in San Francisco for WWDC, join us at our annual WWDC meetup Wednesday night!
