iOS/iPadOS 17 Beta with Microsoft Intune

Apple recently released the iOS/iPadOS 17 beta. As with any new OS, customers are eager to test and deploy the latest version. Microsoft Intune does not support iOS, iPadOS, or macOS beta releases.

Why Intune doesn’t support beta versions

We declare support once the OS becomes generally available (GA). We will document, often as a known issue and after the product GA’s, the occasional scenario that doesn’t quite work as expected. One reason why we don’t support beta OS’s is that a lot can change from feedback between beta releases, and features can come in and out of the OS.

“We declare support once the OS becomes generally available (GA).”

What to do if you are using a beta version

If you are running the beta version of iOS/iPadOS 17, we recommend that you wait until the OS is generally available before you deploy it to your users. If you have already deployed the beta version, please contact Microsoft Support for assistance.
