my last post was a little premature, as overnight we received emails like the above for Apple School Manager.
Apple Business Manager email received beforehand, this email forewarns of a change to the Apple School Manager terms on December 3, 2020.
This time, however, the email was from a more expected address (firstname.lastname@example.org), and the email contained no link to the terms for review beforehand.
Digging around though, the PDF may possibly be found
Anyway, if you are an Administrator of an
Apple School Manager instance mark down a little task on December 3, 2020 to approve these new terms.
If you don’t agree to the terms in a timely manner, you’re likely to see issues with ADE/DEP
as detailed previousl y .
As forewarned in the above email sent to Apple Business Manager administrator accounts on June 2nd, Apple has started to roll out the updated the Terms for Apple Business Manager.
An Administrator account will be prompted to agree these updated Terms when next logging into Apple Business Manager, & until then your MDM will not sync any devices purchased after the Terms were updated.
If you have Jamf Pro, you’ll need to look for the below in you logs this time:

Previously, I have mentioned that Adobe are moving away from Device Pool & Serial Number licensing.
However, at the time we had very little detail on what the new licensing would be.
Well, earlier today Adobe started to release some details. See below for more information & links to Adobes documentation on this new licensing.
When macOS Mojave’s Mac App Stores new look was unveiled during WWDC 2018 it was also announced that Microsoft would be bringing the
Office suite to the Mac App Store.
Well, earlier this week the
announcement was fulfilled.
See below for some information on how this might affect us admins as well as some things to consider.
For a while now,
Adobe has had a documented method to manage some of the options with the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop App.
dataJAR, we have used this successfully for some time. I’ve just forgotten to post it here.
Until now! See below.
When looking into
the issue in my last post, I found I could no longer access Airwatch’s online API documentation.
Ask Airwatch & looking for the API documentation revealed why.
With the 8.3 release, Airwatch have started a process of refactoring & remotion of the Uniform Resource Identifier (read: URI) used for API calls.
See below for more information on these changes.
On Friday, Apple released an update titled “Incompatible Kernel Extension Configuration Data: Version 3.28.1”
This update was an exclude list of bad Kernel Extension’s for 10.11 & included an Apple Kernel Extension.
Below is some more information on this & a possible way to detect affected Macs via the JSS.
If you manually download a Configuration Profile from the JSS, you’ll see that the profile largely reads as gobbledegook.
Luckily a couple of bash commands later & you’ll have a readable profile.
Way back in Jan 2014 grabbed a test iPhone & after charging I was greeted with the above.
After various exclamations along the lines of
“Holy fishsticks, Batman!” we did get the iPhone enabled & this did not involve a time machine or me waiting the 23,053,554 minutes for the device.
Below is how & some guess work as to what happened.
