VMware: 3 iOS 11 Features for Enterprises We’re Excited About
With iOS 11 expected in the fall, at VMware AirWatch we’re working to support and ensure our productivity apps are compatible with iOS 11. We’re especially excited about a few key features announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) that will help our customers easily deploy devices, make sure devices are properly configured and ensure devices are secure. Check out the iOS 11 preview webpage on Apple’s website for more information.1. Device Enrollment Program
With iOS 11, any device will be able to be added to the Device Enrollment Program (DEP) using Apple Configurator 2. Previously, only devices purchased directly from Apple or a participating Apple Authorized Reseller could be added to DEP.
Devices added to DEP will be in a provisional period for 30 days, during which users can opt out to protect personally owned devices from accidently being added, supervised and managed with mobile device management (MDM). This will be especially useful for schools that may receive donated devices, for example. DEP provides a streamlined way to deploy corporate or school-owned devices, and we’re excited it will expand with iOS 11.
