Last week, Apple released public betas of its highly anticipated operating system (OS) updates: iOS 10 and macOS Sierra. Available through the Apple Beta Software Program, each public beta comes with a built-in Feedback Assistant to provide feedback to Apple.
VMware AirWatch is working to support the new features in Apple iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, ensuring that all our productivity applications are compatible with the OS updates. Our customers can read more about our support, compatibility and current known issues in myAirWatch for both the iOS 10 and macOS Sierra beta. We have these resources available to you to help your organization prepare for the upcoming releases:
- myAirWatch: Getting Ready for iOS 10
- myAirWatch: Getting Ready for macOS Sierra
- Blog post: Major Mobile Updates from the Apple WWDC 2016
- Apple microsite: More resources on support for iOS and macOS
Before the release of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, we encourage our customers to test compatibility with critical applications (including AirWatch apps), especially as updated beta versions are released. If you encounter any issues, work with your app vendor to identify and fix the issue prior to the commercial releases.
Our customers can log a support ticket to let us know if they run into any issues (more info here). Finally, make sure your users are aware of any issues and communicate about the OS updates as needed.
Visit beta.apple.com for more information and register to participate. You can also check out WWDC session replays to learn more about the upcoming releases.
Keep in mind that beta software is not commercially released software, and there may be errors or things that do not function as well as released versions. Before participating in the beta, make sure you back up iOS and macOS devices. We also recommend that you install any betas on a secondary device or partition.
