Computer Management Capabilities

You can now send the Enable/Disable Bluetooth command for computers with macOS 10.13.4 or later. This command can be sent as a remote command or a mass action.

Added Control Over Network State Change Triggers

You can now allow or prevent "Network State Change" triggers for policies globally by selecting or deselecting the Allow Network State Change Triggers checkbox. To access this feature in Jamf Pro, navigate to Settings > Computer Management > Check-In.

Mobile Device Management Capabilities

Mobile Device Remote Command Enhancements

  • You can now send the Enable/Disable Bluetooth command for supervised mobile devices with iOS 11.3 or later. This command can be sent as a remote command or a mass action.

  • You can now configure the Suppress Proximity Setup checkbox option for wiping mobile devices with iOS 11.3 or later as a Healthcare Listener rule.

AirPlay Permissions Enhancements

You can now limit the number of connections from the Apple TV Remote app to allowed Apple TV destinations. When the Automate Apple TV Remote app connections to permitted Apple TV destinations checkbox is selected in Settings > Global Management > AirPlay Permissions, the Apple TV Remote app on a device with iOS 11.3 or later can only connect to an Apple TV device based on the configured mapping field. Additionally, a device with tvOS 11.3 or later will only allow Apple TV Remote app connections from the allowed iOS devices. To ensure the permission is correctly configured, the devices must share the selected inventory field. To view and edit the inventory field values, go to the User and Location category in the device's inventory information.Note: To control your Apple TV device, use the Control Center on a device with iOS 11.3 or later, or connect it to the App Store Apple TV Remote app. For more information, see the following article from Apple's support website: https://support.apple.com/HT201664.
