Microsoft Intune Updates and New Features for July

Agile Development is a norm around Microsoft these days.

That basically breaks down to the fact that new features and enhancements are being shipped on a regular basis, many times more than once a month, and so keeping up with that progress can be challenging.

In order to help with that tracking, here is a great resource for Microsoft Intune users to get a list of those new items in the service.

Each month, the Intune team updates this documentation with a list of new features and enhancements for the previous month.

Today that document is highlighting the following new additions for July:

-- Restrict Android and iOS device enrollment restriction by OS version
-- Restrict Android, iOS, and macOS device personally owned device enrollment
-- New device action to force devices to sync with Intune
-- Conditional access support for Mac devices
-- Check Point SandBlast Mobile - New Mobile Threat Defense partner
-- Deploy an app as available in the Windows Store for Business
-- UI updates to the Company Portal website
-- Enhancements to app tiles
-- Navigation changes
-- Updates to Featured Apps
-- iBooks support for the Company Portal website
-- Light and dark modes available for the Company Portal app for Windows 10
-- Enable end users to tag their device group in the Company Portal app for Windows 10

They are also highlighting the end of support for two mobile operating systems, iOS 8 and Windows Phone 8.1, so users will need to make sure their client devices are updated to either iOS 9 or Windows 10 Mobile.

You can read the full details of these updates and changes over on the Microsoft Intune document portal.


But, wait...there's probably more so be sure to follow me on Twitter and Google+.
