Patch Management for Apple

N-central enables you to update software on your Apple devices for the following types of updates:

  • Update Apple operating system
    • For Device Management for Apple enrolled devices, you can use the Update OS Version command to update the operating system for your end users.
  • Update apps purchased on the App Store
  • Update third party apps not purchased on the App Store
    • The Managed Patch task automatically deploys verified third party updates for supported products via Munki client software. Optionally, you can also configure the task to prompt users to install Apple OS updates for unmanaged Apple devices not enrolled in Device Management for Apple.
