I think this is important news coming out with the announcement of ConfigMgr 2203 is that macOS client management with Configuration Manager is going to reach of End of Support Soon.

 

Microsoft announced that Mac Device management with SCCM is one of the features getting Deprecated soon. The date is 31st Dec 2022.

 

The following is the table that Microsoft updated in the documentation with SCCM 2203 release

The Configuration Manager client for macOS and Mac client management. For more information, see Supported clients: Mac computers. Migrate management of macOS devices to Microsoft Intune. For more information, see Deployment guide: Manage macOS devices in Microsoft Intune.January 2022December 31, 2022

Hope this information was helpful. So start looking at alternative solutions for macOS or Mac device management.

 

The macOS SCCM Client Management support is going away announced during the 2203 version release of SCCM. MacOS management should be decoupled from SCCM.

 

For macOS client management, you might start looking at other solutions such as Intune, Jamf, or Parallels.

 

You can check out the new ConfigMgr Management Insights rules to understand the impact on your environment with deprecated features. ConfigMgr CMG classic deployment is also out of support now.

 

The Dark Theme of the SCCM Console is the new pre-release feature of 2203 - turn on the dark theme. Set SCCM Software Center Icon for Task Sequences Packages | Easy Steps is another feature - a new software center icon.

 

For the troubleshooting of any of the scenarios shared above, it's better to get the details of the issues using Configuration Manager Log files.

 

The SCCM 2203 support is there for all the supported versions of Windows 11 and Windows 10.

 

You can also manage Windows 11 devices with Intune whether it's either Joined to Azure AD or Hybrid Azure AD.

 

SCCM Task Sequence is a unique scenario supported only for Windows 10 and Windows 11 devices. The Task Sequences helps organizations to upgrade from one version of Windows 10 or Windows 11 upgrades.

 

You can install Company Portal Application on Windows 11 computers after enabling the co-management. However, this is available only for Windows devices not available for Mac devices. The company portal app is not supported for tenant attach (device sync to MEM admin center) scenarios.
