macOS Support

SimpleMDM allows an administrator to manage macOS devices similarly to iOS devices within the administrator interface. 

Due to differences in macOS as well as SimpleMDM, not all iOS MDM features are also supported for macOS. These features are known to work for macOS:

  • Device Actions:  Lock device, wipe device, re-enroll/unenroll device, disable Activation Lock.
  • Device & App Inventory: Device, network, and installed app inventory information.
  • Apps: Volume Purchase Program (VPP), macOS package (PKG) deployment.
  • Accounts: Email (Exchange / IMAP / POP) and VPN.
  • Configurations: Certificates, custom configuration profiles, FileVault, Firewall settings, firmware passwords, kernel extension policies, passcode / screensaver policies, restrictions, VPN accounts, privacy preferences policies, web clips, notification settings, and wireless networks.
  • Enrollment: manual enrollment (URL), Automated Enrollment (DEP), User Enrollment (macOS 10.15+).
  • Rules / Quarantine
