Andrew Orr joins host Kelly Guimont to discuss the announcement of Apple Business Essentials and why this is a big deal for a lot of users.
Managing your own iPhone is fine, but when it comes to managing other people’s iPhones — especially dozens and dozens of them — things get a little more interesting. Thankfully, the good folks at iMazing — our WWDC coverage sponsor for this week — have been hard at work and recently released iMazing Configurator. Please join me in thanking them for not only sponsoring us this week, but also creating this much-needed tool.

Jamf is a mobile device management company for Apple devices. Today it announced the launch of Jamf School.
Jamf School is an Apple education technology solution purpose-built for educators. It wasn’t designed for the expert IT user; instead it was designed with an intuitive interface and workflows to empower teachers to seamlessly manage and use their Apple devices for creating an active learning environment. It joins Jamf Pro to offer schools a solution choice that best fits their needs. With the launch of Jamf School also comes powerful apps.
If you’re the family tech support person you’ll want these mobile device management (MDM) tools to help you manage family devices.
The iPhone, iPad, and Mac device management tool Jamf Now just gained two new features: package (.PKG) file deployment for the Mac, and custom iOS app deployment. That’ll be handy for companies needing to push apps that aren’t available through Apple’s own App Stores to devices. Jamf Now also lets you manage device serial numbers and OS versions, settings, and more. The service is free for up to three devices, and US$2 a month for additional devices.
