Jamf Unlock Release History

1.2.0 (2021-08-30)

The following improvements are now available:

  • UI translation for Japanese, French, German, and Spanish.

  • The Paired Devices window in the Jamf Connect menu bar app now displays the user's paired device name rather than just the device type.

  • Improvements to the device pairing UI that ensure prompts asking for access to the device camera, location, and Bluetooth correctly display.

  • The PIN authentication UI no longer displays an expiration timer when a static PIN type is configured.

This update will be available in the App Store when it's approved by Apple.
