Information – NHSmail Intune – Plan for Change: Intune moving to support iOS 15/iPadOS 15 and higher later this year

10/08/2023 10:20:00 AM (GMT)

Later this year, we expect iOS 17 to be released by Apple. Microsoft Intune, including the Intune Company Portal and Intune app protection policies (APP, also known as MAM), will require iOS 15/iPadOS 15 and higher shortly after the iOS 17 release.

User impact : If you are managing iOS/iPadOS devices, you might have devices that will not be able to upgrade to the minimum supported version (iOS 15/iPadOS 15). Provided that Microsoft 365 mobile apps are supported on iOS 15/iPadOS 15 and higher, this may not affect you; you have likely already upgraded your OS or devices.

See the following Apple documentation for devices to check which devices support iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 (if applicable).

For instructions on how to check in the Microsoft Intune admin centre which devices or users may be affected, read below.

Note : Userless iOS and iPadOS devices enrolled through Automated Device Enrollment (ADE) have a slightly nuanced support statement due to their shared usage. The minimum supported OS version will change to iOS 15/iPadOS 15 while the allowed OS version will change to iOS 12/iPadOS 12 and later. For more details, see

Recommendation : Check your Intune reporting to see what devices or users may be affected. For devices with mobile device management (MDM) go to to Devices > All devices and filter by OS. For devices with app protection policies go to Apps > Monitor > App protection status and use the Platform and Platform version columns to filter.

To manage the supported OS version in your organization, you can use Microsoft Intune controls for both MDM and APP. For more information, please review: Manage operating system versions with Intune – Microsoft Intune | Microsoft Learn.
