Oh Apple - I KNEW it was coming!!

 I am going to TOTALLY copy and past what my Apple guy sent along - ugh:)!!

Hardware Highlights from Recent Announcement
Apple iPad Pro 12.9 inch screen with Keyboard Option and Apple Pencil - http://www.apple.com/ipad-pro/
All new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus - http://www.apple.com/iphone/
Apple TV with new TVos open to developers - http://www.apple.com/tv/
iOS 9
* iOS 9 is a free upgrade and will ship on September 16thhttps://www.apple.com/ios/whats-new/
* iOS 9 is supported on iPad 2 and greater.
* iOS 9 will take much less free space to install than previous iOS updates.

iOS 9 is full of new management capabilities that many of you have been asking for.  These include things like:
* Assign and deploy a VPP purchased app to a device (not a person) using your MDM server without the need for an Apple ID on the device.
* Deploying apps to a device while keeping the App Store restricted so the end user can’t see it or use it.
* Restrict users from being able to trust Enterprise Developer Profiles for 3rd party apps (think Vshare).

State Testing Update
MDE and Pearson announced support for the Full Size iPad for Minnesota State Testing. Roadshow dates with MDE, Apple and Pearson are coming soon! 


Now, none of this is a surprise to ANY of us, but they're KILLING us!!  The biggest one being that you can now MDE and Pearson test on the full size iPad - GREAT - NOT GREAT - as we JUST switched to iPad minis this past year - oh well.  One will NEVER really be caught up with ANY technology, as the MINUTE you walk out the door, they are putting something BIGGER and BETTER on the shelf you just left:)!

Happy Monday all
Mrs. I:)
