Ivanti Delivers Day-Zero Compatibility and Key Feature Support for iOS and iPadOS 15
Here at Ivanti, we are excited about iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. I’m pleased to share that we offer day-zero compatibility and key feature support across the Ivanti product portfolio for the new features built into Apple’s updated OSs.
iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 bring plenty of new things to see and experience with a combination of security, user experience, and performance. Some of the coolest new features and improvements include Managed Pasteboard, New Code signature format for security, Account-Driven User Enrollment, Required Apps and Books improvements, Declarative Management, and Software Update options and Shared iPad Enhancements.
Ivanti customers can take advantage of the new features in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 including:
- Managed Pasteboard: This is a new restriction which controls if the paste function is affected with managed open in rules. If this restriction is imposed, then the user will see a notification explaining that the paste feature is not allowed while trying to paste content. Your organization’s name can also be displayed on the notification, which can be customized in organization info settings with Ivanti Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) formerly MobileIron Cloud.
- This is another new restriction that will allow admins to restrict the device from connecting to Siri servers for the purposes of translation. This feature is also available with Ivanti UEM.
- New Code Signature Format: With iOS 15 Apple has again strengthened the security of the platform. Among the improvements, iOS 15 requires an updated code signature format. The good news is that these improvements do not require any changes from developers distributing their apps through the App Store or TestFlight because App Store Connect will re-sign the app. Ivanti customers distributing their apps though the Apple Developer Enterprise Program or using incapptic Connect don’t need to worry either. Starting with version 1.38.0 their apps can be re-signed automatically meeting iOS 15 requirements. Developers using ad hoc, or enterprise distribution might need to re-sign their apps manually and should check if their apps need to be re-signed using the codesign utility as outlined here.
Apart from the above features Ivanti is also diligently working on other cool features such as Account-Driven User Enrollment, Declarative Management, Apps and Book Improvements so our customers can enjoy the full set of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 features. At Ivanti, we are committed to providing excellent customer service and support. We look forward to helping our customers leverage the full potential of the updates in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15.
