Never again view new Apple features from afar. Put them to use as soon as they become available.
Let users get the most out of their device.
While you get the management features you've been waiting for.
Aside from the untold benefits empowering employees and students with the latest technology brings, upgrading operating systems provides you with the management tools you need to keep your computers and devices secure. Jamf Pro helps you deliver on the promise of a better device experience, and ensures you don’t fall prey to data breaches and system vulnerabilities simply because your devices are out of date.
Select when and how to upgrade.
A flexible tool for your unique environment.
Jamf Pro provides several ways for IT to confidently deploy Mac and iOS updates en masse. For Mac, choose to either re-image or keep existing data intact by running the standard upgrade. iOS updates can be triggered via a mobile device management (MDM) command to properly managed devices running iOS 9 or higher. And, for the forward-thinking IT admin, help users help themselves by placing the upgrade in an on-demand Self Service app where they can update their device on their own.
If you don’t want users jumping the gun and upgrading when you’re not ready, you can simply block macOS Sierra until your testing is complete.
