If you have many Apple devices to manage, you can do this with Apple Configurator 2 and macOS Server. Both have now been updated.

The Configurator version 2.11 now supports “new devices” according to Apple. We simply assume that the iPhone 11 series is meant.

The macOS server in version 5.9 now allows the configuration of WPA3 settings on devices and can update settings with company contracts for eSIM cards. The management of Activation Lock was introduced for macOS. Since Catalina, Macs containing a T2 security chip can now also be set to need to be activated like iPhones before use.

If you are thinking about using macOS as a server rather than as a configuration program: say goodbye to the idea that the train has left, Apple has cancelled all useful services. Here we show you an alternative.
