Have you noticed already that the DEP screen has been silently updated by Apple on their backend with „Skip configuration” option, allowing user to skip PreStage enrollment altogether – something that was previously possible only by going offline? And I'm not talking about that completely redesigned High Sierra DEP screen, but our „good old pre-10.13” one. I can't find any information on that on the web just yet. Does anyone have some insight?
I have to say that with User-approved MDM in 10.13.2 and now this „skip” option before PreStage it is clear that Apple keeps giving more and more control to the end-user and I'm wondering – have anyone heard about DEP abuse in enterprise? What is all that about, really?
Update: Heh, I've just made a fool of myself as it turned out to be the coincidence of two independent PreStage enrollments I co-manage having „make MDM mandatory” recently unchecked, what made me freak out for a moment. Can somebody trash this thread as it appears there's no option available for me to do it?
