Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2022-05-06

The month of May is like “advent for Apple fans.” WWDC is looming in a few weeks. Most of the dust from previous system releases has settled. Things have been fixed, or we have gotten used to the workarounds. Anticipation and dread for the next round of releases is rising. Sometimes, Apple even opens a door or two and releases something which didn’t fit in the keynote.

  • tlark: “ATTN MDM vendors. Please take a long good look at Munki, it is what IT admin/eng want. We don’t want complex systems that require GUI clicking. We just reduced our level of effort by ripping out third party app deployment/patching from our MDM and deployed Munki in AWS” (Thread)
