Update iOS device missing from management

Maybe I'm missing something here, I was hoping someone could point this out if so. Say we have 10 iOS devices under management. I want to update 1 of the 10 devices. When I search for my device, and go to the Management tab, I have about a dozen actions in Management Commands. Update iOS is NOT on this list of actions.

This device shows up as 'supervised' in the MDM. This was enrolled via URL, it's not a DEP device. Is there something besides supervision that needs to happen before 'update iOS' shows up as an available action?

Thanks for the help!

The Update iOS command requires devices to be enrolled via DEP and not just Supervised. The documentation on this can be found here: The note at the bottom that says " Requires supervision and enrollment via PreStage enrollment" refers to DEP enrollment.

Also, you won't find the update iOS command directly in the device profile at all. You can only do it by doing a search for the device, then using the "action" button in the lower right.

I made a feature request for exactly what you're describing though:
