Jamf School 8.1.0

Jamf School 8.1.0 provides compatibility for iOS 13.1, iPadOS 13.1, and tvOS 13.

User Enrollment

iOS 13.1 and iPadOS 13.1 introduces User Enrollment as a new form of mobile device management for enrolling personally owned devices in a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program. It is designed to keep corporate data safe on devices while protecting users' privacy.

User Enrollment keeps personal and institutional data separate by associating a personal Apple ID with personal data and a Managed Apple ID with corporate data. This allows for a limited management of devices using a set of configurations and policies that associate management with the user, not the entire device. The user can access their corporate data without the administrator erasing, modifying, or viewing personal data. This separation allows users to keep their personal data protected and intact once the device is removed from Jamf School, while the corporate data is deleted.

User Enrollment allows administrators to:

  • Configure accounts

  • Configure per-app VPN

  • Install and configure apps

  • Require a passcode

  • Enforce certain restrictions

  • Issue an MDM command or query gathering information about apps, accounts and configuration provided by the MDM solution

  • Unenroll the device and cause all organizationally provided data, apps, and accounts to be deleted

User Enrollment prevents administrators from:

  • Obtaining any persistent device identities (like Serial Number, UDID or IMEI) and instead uses a unique value to identify the device for the duration of the enrollment

  • Setting the complex alphanumeric passcode restriction

  • Clearing the device passcode or lowering the security of the device

  • Enforcing certain restrictions

  • Taking over management of an app that a user installed themselves

  • Issuing an MDM command or query gathering information about apps downloaded with the user’s personal Apple ID

  • Remotely wiping the entire device

  • Accessing any cellular features

  • Adding payloads that collect logs on the device

  • Adding any supervised restrictions to the user’s device

Users can enroll devices using User Enrollment by navigating to the same enrollment URL as on-device enrollment. For example: "". When prompted, users must enter their Managed Apple ID.

Enrollment Customization Enhancements

Jamf School 8.1.0 adds support for user authentication during enrollment with a Google account. For more information, see Setting Up Google Sign-In in Jamf School.

Apple TV Management Capabilities

You can now prevent Apple TV devices with tvOS 13 from going to sleep.

Jamf School 8.0.0 provides compatibility for iOS 13.

Enrollment Customization

You can use the Enrollment Customization settings in Jamf School to further customize the enrollment experience for a user when they enroll their computer or mobile device with Jamf School. Enrollment Customization allows you to configure custom branding, consent text, and modern authentication that displays during enrollment when enrolling using Apple School Manager. To configure custom branding settings, navigate to Organization > Settings > Appearance. To configure consent text in a DEP profile, navigate to Organization > Agreements.
