iPads that Do/Do Not Support Current iOS

New Contributor III

In our district we have a lot of iPads of varying ages (I think we still have a couple of iPad 1's hiding out there!). I want to be able to quickly view which of these iPads are still current and which are not. Initially I thought about creating an extension attribute that just states whether the device supports the current iOS, and then make smart groups based on that, but then I realized you can't do EA's for iPads.

I know I can just make a Smart Group that says any model that's a 5th gen, Air or Air 2 is in the Supported iOS group and everything else is in the Unsupported iOS group, but I don't want to have to change that criteria every time a new device comes out or an old device is no longer supported or when a new iOS version is released. I'd just like it to set it and forget it. Is there a way to do this?

Not really, but id also be using an advanced computer search vs smart group. That way you're not forcing Jamf Pro to always calculate groups.

We've purged our oldest models, so I just roll with this:


We'll prob be re-selling all those this summer.

Ok, that's what I ended up doing. I created smart searches for "iOS Devices: Supported" and "iOS Devices: Unsupported" and listed each applicable model under the criteria. I'll have to change it any time Apple moves forward, but it's something. Any new ideas, please still post...
