Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2021-09-10

Quiet week… There was Labour Day in the US. Hope you all had a great and quiet week-end! I have also been distracted preparing my presentation for MacSysAdmin 2021.

Apple did announce their first event since WWDC for next week Sep 14! I guess everyone is holding their breath for this.

The Fusion of Apple MDM, Identity, Patching & Security.

Mosyle Fuse is the first and only product to bring a perfect blend of an Enterprise-grade MDM, an innovative solution for macOS Identity Management, automated application installation and patching, and purpose-built multi-layer endpoint security, all specially designed for Apple devices used at work at a price point that’s almost unexplainable.

With the event next week, the release of the next major Apple OS upgrades is imminent and the beta season is coming to a close. (Though, not really. Apple will continue to release betas of the updates through out the year, some of which will add more new features, and Apple admins will should keep testing and filing feedback continously.) This year was a strange beta season, with a three week break in macOS releases, and an even longer break in Xcode releases. It will be interesting to see how this reflects in the timing of the releases. Remember, last year macOS 11 was not released until November.
