    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Hexnode enables you to block the software update notifications on macOS devices. The feature is supported on macOS 10.10 and later.

    • Navigate to Policies -> macOS -> Restrictions -> App Store and uncheck Allow software update notifications only.
    • Associate targets and save the policy.

    Cheers!

    Yes, the administrator will be able to upgrade the DEP-enrolled macOS devices to its latest OS version using Hexnode:

    • Navigate to Policies-> macOS-> Security-> OS updates and click Configure.
    • Click on the drop-down list next to the option Choose your OS update settings.
    • You will have the following options to choose from:
      Notify Only: Notify the user of a software update via App Store.
      Download Only: Download the software update without installing it.
      Download and Install: The updated version will get downloaded and installed automatically.
      Install: An already downloaded software update will get installed.
      Install later: Download the software update and install later.
      macOS updates
    • Associate targets and save the policy.

    Please check out our help doc on scheduling macOS updates.

    Cheers!
