WALNUT, Calif., September 17, 2018 ( – Hexnode MDM, an award-winning Unified Endpoint Management solution, announced Day 1 support for iOS 12, which is all set to be released on Monday, Sept. 17, 2018. This release highlights Apple’s support to a wide variety of features and updates that the users would love to experience. New features like Memoji, Group Notifications, and most importantly, better overall performance for older phones will make the existing iPhones and iPads feel like new.

Most of the new iOS 12 updates are fairly straightforward – this won’t require rethinking the EMM strategies. Yet a few of them clearly stand out:

  1. Enforce automatic date and time on supervised devices.
  2. Use OAuth for managed Exchange accounts (also applies to MacOS 10.14).
  3. Restrictions for password autofill on supervised iOS and macOS.
  4. Commands to install public apps and tvOS updates on Apple TV.

iOS 12 will support all the devices that iOS 11 supports thus promising performance improvements for all these old devices. On the security front, iOS 12 has put forward the restricted USB mode that would ensure protection against physical attacks. The iOS 12 beta indicates that iPhones and iPads will apparently get automatic software updates. Increased reliability and compatibility are among the highly appreciated features of iOS 12.

A few of the other highly recognized features of iOS 12 are:

  1. Apple News, Stocks, Voice Memos and CarPlay
  2. Grouped Notifications
  3. Security and Privacy
  4. Force Bluetooth on or off via MDM
  5. Allow password proximity requests
  6. Allow password sharing
