MC390417: Plan for Change: Intune moving to support iOS 14/iPadOS 14 and higher later this year

Updated June 10, 2022: We have updated this post to ensure visibility for all impacted organizations. The content below has not changed. Thank you for your patience.

Later this year, we expect iOS 16 to be released by Apple. Microsoft Intune, including the Intune Company Portal and Intune app protection policies (APP, also known as MAM), will require iOS 14/iPadOS 14 and higher shortly after iOS 16’s release.

MC390417: Plan for Change: Intune moving to support iOS 14/iPadOS 14 and higher later this year

How this will affect your organization

If you are managing iOS/iPadOS devices, you might have devices that will not be able to upgrade to the minimum supported version (iOS 14/iPadOS 14). Provided that Office 365 mobile apps are supported on iOS 14/iPadOS 14 and higher, this may not affect you; you’ve likely already upgraded your OS or devices.

See the following Apple documentation for devices to check which devices support iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 (if applicable).

For instructions on how to check in the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center which devices or users may be affected, read below.

Note: Userless iOS and iPadOS devices enrolled through Automated Device Enrollment (ADE) have a slightly nuanced support statement due to their shared usage. See for more information.

What you need to do to prepare

Check your Intune reporting to see what devices or users may be affected. For devices with mobile device management (MDM) go to Devices > All devices and filter by OS. For devices with app protection policies go to Apps > Monitor > App protection status > App Protection report: iOS, Android.

To manage the supported OS version in your organization, you can use Microsoft Endpoint Manager controls for both MDM and APP.
