I have already described in one of my first blogs how you can set up an Endpoint Manager development environment and enroll Windows devices via Autopilot and manage them. Apart from Windows, you can also manage iOS, Android and MacOS very well with Intune. Apple offers a good interface (MDM Protocol) to manage MacOS devices, unfortunately not all options are supported with Intune. Also in the WWDC22 there was some great new features introduces.
MacOS support was added to Intune back in 2015. At that time, the management of Mac devices was still very limited – something that has changed in the meantime. The number of companies using Mac devices is growing more and more, as is the general market share of macOS compared to Windows. This was around 3% in 2009 and has risen to 15% today (2022). Of course, Windows is still in front, but a trend can be seen.
There is a lot of worthy blog that deals with the topic MacOS management and Intune:
- Comprehensive guide to managing macOS with Intune by Oliver Kieselbach
- Corporate macOS Automated Device Enrollment (ADE) to MEM/Intune by Hubert Maslowski
- Microsoft Intune Vs Jamf macOS Device Management Enhancements by Anoop C Nair
Just to name a few. Of course there are some great other blogs.
In this blog I want to give you a step by step guide on how to enroll a macOS device in Intune. There will be more blogs in the future with the topic of managing macOS with Intune.Read More »
