Meraki Systems Manager is Cisco Systems' Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution that allows you to manage all of your iOS devices from a central web dashboard. Installing this app on an iOS device provides enhanced MDM and MAM functionality that includes features such as a managed app store, content delivery with backpack, and GPS location reporting.
Note: continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.
This is a minor update that fixes several small issues.
The main changes are:
- Locations permissions prompt will show on first launch
- App icon badges reflect the number of new items
- Managed apps that are already installed can now be re-installed from the Managed Apps page
- A crash when running in the background has been resolved. This should make location reporting more reliable.
Ratings and Reviews
Two big things - location and control - are suspect. On stolen/lost devices, trying to locate them - even last location - has been way off.
There is also moderate tax/hit on battery life for this merely average visibility and control.
Location Services isn’t working
After updating to the latest versions, location services has stopped working on our devices. It used to be fairly reliable, but recently I cannot get it to use GPS to locate over half of our iOS devices. The timing is bad too - we’ve had 2 iPads go missing since 2.5.1 was released and I wasn’t able to locate either. Not only do I have 2 devices gone, I also look rather incompetent as the IT manager with a tracking system that failed.
The system was great, and can be 5 stars again once location is fixed, but an MDM without working GPS is not so great.
Doesn’t open settings
iPads or whatever on the newer operating systems do not automatically open settings when the profile is downloaded. Is there anyway you can fix that?
