The 2020 Apple for Enterprise Business edition

Apple’s 31st Worldwide Developers Conference, with its kick-off keynote speech on June 22, was held with no physical gathering due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus around the world.

Being digital, it was free for all developers. Apple stated that the online event will allow millions of creative and innovative developers to get access to future versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS, as well as engage with Apple engineers.

Apple revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today, Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. The different Apple’s software platforms provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices.

“With all of the new products and technologies we’ve been working on, WWDC 2020 is going to be big,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering prior to the event. And he didn’t disappoint.

Big News with Big Sur, the first macOS that will run native iPadOS and iOS apps! That’s convergence!

The 2020 Apple for Enterprise Technical edition

Call it a healthy competition or just “good things take time” but our Ops team couldn’t resist bringing you the highlights in the new MDM controls and restrictions.

They didn’t rewrite the complete Apple documentation, but hand picked the features they feel that are important to our enterprise customers.

The introduction of macOS 11and the outlook to run this OS on Apple Silicon brings the expectation everything we known on iOS and iPadOS will now also be possible on macOS 11… and it actually does work like that!

Managed Apps on macOS 11 are a big thing, we know the opportunities, we understand the restrictions, but most of all, we know you have all been waiting for this to become available on macOS.

Per App VPN gets updated with features we wished for since years to enable a device based split tunnel between authentication traffic and app traffic.

Per Account VPN allows you to channel all Account traffic through the correct tunnel, where you could have multiple per App.

A short guide, not too long and not too much details, but providing a great overview of the new features.

We’ll go really deep dive in the upcoming Masterclass on Apple for Enterprise later this year. 

In the mean time, enjoy the reading!
