iOS 8.3 is here: This changes things for mobile administrator

The Apple Watch is here. The new wearable device from Cupertino will be mobile OS integrated and comes with many improvements.

TOWER ONE recommends that all devices in your device pool be updated to iOS 8.3 since Apple's upgrade not only offers the newest features, but also functions relevant to security: Find out more about the security improvements here.



TARMAC administrators can expect new functions in the area of security:

  • Apple introduces the forceWatchWristDetection: With this, it's possible to force users to unlock their Apple Watch with a passcode once the Watch has been removed from their wrist.
  • Also new: allowFingerprintModification (Only in supervised mode): This function  prevents the TouchID settings from being changed. Download the most current Compliance Rules for your TARMAC server (Download)
