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, security, and installed app inventory information.
  • Apps: Volume Purchase Program (VPP), macOS package (PKG) deployment, hosted SimpleMDM-Munki integration (PKGs and DMGs).
  • Accounts: Email (Exchange / IMAP / POP) and VPN.
  • Configurations: AirPrint printers, AirPlay destinations, certificates, custom configuration profiles, FileVault, Firewall settings, firmware passwords, kernel extension policies, passcode / screensaver policies, restrictions, VPN accounts, privacy preferences policies, system extensions policies, web clips, notification settings, macOS software update policy, and wireless networks.
  • Enrollment: manual enrollment (URL), Automated Enrollment (DEP), User Enrollment (macOS 10.15+).
