Apple today announced a voluntary recall of a limited number of older
generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units which contain a battery that may
overheat and pose a safety risk. The units were sold primarily between
September 2015 and February 2017 and ca...
This is more of a "putting out feelers" sort of question, but does
anyone in healthcare with HIPAA restrictions have any insights on use
cases for or against Face ID and Touch ID? We disable biometrics on
iPads and Macs as a blanket measure because i...
In a not entirely unexpected event, the Jamf policy to add the
management account to FileVault no longer works on APFS volumes.
Executing the policy shows the following in the terminal with verbose
output: Error: Added users failed error. Error addin...
APFS and fdesetup seem to be the order of the day in testing the new OS.

I wanted to respond back and let you know our organization ended up

Macs. The M1's are still a bit of a problem, but when we can quickly get

administrative input if it is not done via MDM, even when executing as

lot of the current point update workfl...
I have been finding the MDM command on M1's seems to work consistently
on the few test M1's I have access to, but it tends to throw up errors
half the time on Intel Macs. I haven't spent much time investigating it
but it's still on my radar because i...
I'm looking forward to trying this. Big Sur has been an issue for
mandating updates and the thought process was to have a script prompt a
