Symantec Mobile Management for Microsoft Configuration Manager

Apple iOS 7


Older builds of the Symantec Mobile Management app are not compatible with iOS 7 beta releases, due to Apple’s changes in app access to UDID and MAC addresses.  Symantec recommends against upgrading iOS devices to iOS 7.  SMM agents 4962 and newer are compatible with iOS 7 but devices at iOS 7 or upgraded to iOS 7 are NOT compatible with Symantec Mobile Management for Configuration Manager. 

Symantec advises that you do not upgrade your iOS devices to iOS 7 if managing them with Symantec Mobile Management for Microsoft Configuration Manager.
