Apple releases iOS 11.2; updates DEP software agreements

Your rating: None (2 votes)

This weekend Apple released iOS 11.2, which has been in beta for several weeks. The update includes several new features:

  • Allows an app in single-app mode to be updated by MDM, a long-requested feature. This is sure to make things much better for anyone running kiosks.
  • Fixes a bug where the UI began restarting spontaneously on December 2.
  • Introduces Apple Pay Cash to “send and receive money to friends and family” — this will begin rolling out next week
  • Adds Support for faster wireless charging on iPhone 8 and X (from 5 to 7.5 mA)
  • Fixes an issue that could cause cleared Mail notifications from Exchange accounts to reappear
  • Fixes an issue where you the calculator would give you the wrong answer if you typed too quickly (prior to upgrading, try typing “1 + 2 + 3” quickly)
  • lots more bug fixes

In addition, Apple is requiring DEP program agents to sign in and accept new iOS software license agreements that now reference Apple Pay Cash. This is a critical step for all users of Device Enrollment Program. I hope you can find them on Monday!
