Improvements for Macs

MacOS wipe

This release implements a solution for the Mac wipe issues.

Previously when wiping a Mac, the wipe PIN was generated. The PIN is for taking the device in use again after the reset. The wipe PIN is now deprecated for the devices that:

  • has Apple Silicon Mac

  • has Intel CPU AND T2 security chip

Depending on the device's macOS version and hardware support, the wipe process differentiates. Roughly, with older Macs, wiping all the user data and apps also requires the reinstalling of macOS. The wipe PIN is also generated for these devices. The devices with newer macOS versions, which are running on Apple silicon or are Intel-based with a T2 chip, are performing an Erase all Content and Settings. This means that the content and settings are wiped without the need to fully reinstall the whole device.

Bootstrap token

The bootstrap token for Macs is now supported.

The bootstrap token is an authentication pattern that is created for a supervised device running macOS 10.15 or later when it is enrolled. The token is used to grant a secure token to the user logged in to the device and performing certain operations on a device. For example, the wipe for devices with the bootstrap token is processed as Erase all Content and Settings without a requirement to reinstall the macOS. You can check if the bootstrap token is escrowed on the MDM server from the Device page (Management > Devices > Device). If the device is enrolled before the update, the bootstrap token is generated when the end user logs in next time.Bootstrap token for the device created
