Apple released iOS 7 beta 1 after WWDC (Apple Worldwide Developers Conference) in mid-June 2013. Initial tests have shown that Sophos Mobile Control (SMC) v 3.0 cannot support iOS 7 devices, due to a number of changes in Apple’s latest mobile operating system.
Applies to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)
Sophos Mobile Control 3.0
Sophos will constantly monitor the changes in the iOS beta versions and make sure that SMC will support Apple’s newest mobile OS at the time of the iOS 7 release.
The upcoming SMC 3.5 release (planned for mid-July) already includes some modifications which will support the latest beta version of the operating system at the time of the release. However, it cannot be guaranteed that it will work with any subsequent iOS 7 beta releases.
If it proves necessary, Sophos will release an iOS 7 patch will for SMC 3.5, so please ensure that you upgrade your SMC installation to version 3.5 in advance of this.
