Computer and Mobile Device Management

Jamf Pro compatibility with Apple operating system (OS) releases for computer and mobile device management is generally based on an N-3 support policy. This means that Jamf Pro will support the current major version (“N”) and the three previous major versions (“-3”) within either the Recommended or Minimum Supported compatibility levels. When a new Apple OS version is made available and added to Recommended, the oldest release will be moved from the Minimum Supported to Untested level.
