JumpCloud is proud to announce support for the latest releases of macOS and iOS from Apple. Businesses have transformed and redefined how they can Make Work Happen® on iPhone, iPad and Mac. And JumpCloud is here to ensure a smooth transition to the latest Apple operating systems.
All JumpCloud’s hardware, software, and agents have been tested with Apple devices to verify compatibility and were subjected to thorough performance evaluations to ensure they operate at the highest level with macOS 14 Sonoma, iOS and iPadOS 17.
Products in the JumpCloud open directory platform supporting macOS 14 include:
Apple has released a ton of new features for your teams to use as part of their day to day workflow, and we’ll talk more about those in just a moment, but as someone who manages Apple devices, you probably want to know what’s in it for you. We’ve got great new policies for you to help harness the right controls associated with your environment.
We’ve added support for a new System Services policy that helps you determine access to Remote Management, Bluetooth Settings, and File and Internet Sharing services that are part of macOS. This new policy is meant for macOS 14 Sonoma, and gates access to these features by policy. Once you make the necessary adjustments – through Commands, or Remote Command Line access – you can apply the policy to ensure that the right permissions are enabled and secured.
In addition, we have a new policy that allows you to Block Desktop Widgets from being shared by a Supervised iOS device to a Mac running macOS 14 Sonoma, and an update to our iCloud Access policy to put you in control of new applications that support this functionality.
JumpCloud Go™ is ready for macOS 14 Sonoma! Our phishing-resistant, hardware-bound, passwordless login mechanism for all your key resources works seamlessly in the latest version of macOS. We think your team is going to love logging in using just Touch ID.
A new JumpCloud Login Experience will debut this fall, built for macOS 14 Sonoma with new functionality, and you can test it soon. The new experience will add user-facing capabilities including managing wireless connectivity and account provisioning. This new login screen can be toggled on or off globally for all managed macOS devices running macOS 11 through macOS 14.
Whether your organization is ready for full-scale deployment of macOS 14 Sonoma and iOS 17 on their release days or need more time to evaluate your key applications, JumpCloud can support all your needs. Admins can defer Sonoma updates to a convenient time with a Major Upgrade Version Delay policy in the Admin Portal, or tell their users they can upgrade immediately. All the power’s in your hands. And coming soon, JumpCloud Major Version Patch policies will also give you the ability to move all your devices on older versions to the latest, most secure Apple operating system with a single policy, using JumpCloud’s Patch management tools.
Apple’s latest operating system offers:
Quick question. Will the new login screen work with "requiring username" to be typed in? We have this setup for extra security instead of the avatar login image/account list for both Windows and Mac.
