The Compliance Rules support the new inexpensive business solution: the powerful iPod touch model (6th generation). The newest iPod touch model features 64 bit A8 CPUs (+ M8), an improved camera (8 megapixels), and has up to 128 GB memory. In regards to the hardware update, Apple decided to keep the same size and shape as its predecessor.
With prices starting at only $199, the new iPod touch is an interesting, powerful alternative to other more expensive business devices.

Our tip: Stay up-to-date!
Update your user’s device pool to iOS 8.4. The improved mobile system resolves numerous security issues for your business devices.

Here’s how Mobile Admins will benefit from the new Mobile Device Autopilot in TARMAC 2.4

 

MDM meets AI: our newly developed Mobile Device Autopilot continuously queries your iOS devices and independently manages your devices. The new Dashboard view gives you an immediate status overview for all your iOS devices and scheduled MDM commands.

Minimize your workload
TARMAC 2.4 provides you with all important device information and can independently take care of planned app roll-outs.

The result: fewer tasks, fewer potential sources of error, and less time spent for Mobile Administrators.
The TARMAC Autopilot continuously checks the current state of your entire device pool. You'll always have the current status in a clear overview. The respective target state for profile and app distribution is determined by your assigned groups.

 
One of a kind visual MDM control

The tedious task of searching through command histories is a thing of the past. With the Mobile Device Autopilot, you can monitor the success of MDM commands at a glance.

Review the success of app installations in seconds
Just click the status flag to get the information you need to identify and resolve issues: Why did an update fail? Which installation processes are currently running? When was a device last seen?
