uh oh, Apple must have changed something in the iOS update mechanism. For years, I have been blocking the mesu.apple.com URL at my firewall to prevent my kindergatners from accidentally upgrading our iPads. But now it doesn’t appear to be working. My iPads are all asking to be updated to iOS 12. Anyone know what the new update URL is? Or can someone confirm they are seeing this also?
A 90 day window is not long enough for my organization. Realisticaly and pragmaticaly, we can only really update our iPad fleet during the summer months.
cdn-apple.com is the new one that I found, but it affected me on the other side, I had to whitelist the domain on our content filter to get software updates to work.
I realize apple is a big corporation, but I really wish they would stick with *.apple.com for their official content. That is what subdomains are for...
