Automatically Updating Apps

Automatic app updates are enabled by default.

Twice daily, Jamf Now gathers updated app information from Apple's App Store. When a device syncs with Jamf Now, Jamf Now compares the version of the apps on the device with what was collected from the App Store. If an out-of-date app is detected, Jamf Now will ask the device to install the latest version. For an app to automatically update with this process, the Automatic app updates checkbox must be selected in Jamf Now, and devices with out-of-date installed apps must sync with Jamf Now.

  1. Log in to Jamf Now.
  2. Click More Settings.
  3. Click the Apps tab.
  4. Select or deselect the Automatic app updates checkbox to enable or disable automatic app updates.
  5. Click Save Settings.
