Intune lets you manage macOS devices to give users access to company email and apps.

  1. Use VMware Workstation pro 15 and Macos Hight Sierra installed on Windows 7 64bit. When the installation is clicked on Power on this virtual machine is presented first the window of VMware and then the one with Appleā€™s apple and the progressive bar that starts to scroll.
  2. But if you just want to try the Sierra MacOS, then the ideal solution is to use a Mac OS X virtual machine. If you wish to run different versions of Windows in Virtual Machines, then the following D3K articles are worth taking a look at: How to add an XP Mode Virtual Machine to Windows 10 (or 8) using Hyper-V.

As an Intune admin, you can set up enrollment for company-owned macOS devices and personally owned macOS devices ('bring your own device' or BYOD).


Complete the following prerequisites before setting up macOS device enrollment:

  • Make sure your device is eligible for Apple device enrollment.
  • Assign user licenses in the Microsoft 365 admin center

User-owned macOS devices (BYOD)

You can let users enroll their own personal devices into Intune management. This is known as 'bring your own device' or BYOD. After you've completed the prerequisites and assigned user licenses, your users can enroll their devices by:

  • Going to the Company Portal website or
  • Downloading the Mac Company Portal app at aka.ms/EnrollMyMac.

You can also send your users a link to online enrollment steps: Enroll your macOS device in Intune.

Company-owned macOS devices

For organizations that purchase devices for their users, Intune supports the following macOS company-owned device enrollment methods:

  • Apple's Automated Device Enrollment (ADE): Organizations can purchase macOS devices through ADE. ADE lets you deploy an enrollment profile 'over the air' to bring devices into management.
  • Device enrollment manager (DEM): You can use a DEM account to enroll up to 1,000 devices.
  • Direct enrollment: Direct enrollment does not wipe the device.

Block macOS enrollment

By default, Intune lets macOS devices enroll. To block macOS devices from enrollment, see Set device type restrictions.

Enroll virtual macOS machines for testing


macOS virtual machines are only supported for testing. You should not use macOS virtual machines as production devices for your end users.

You can enroll macOS virtual machines for testing using either Parallels Desktop or VMware Fusion.

For Parallels Desktop, you need to set the hardware type and the serial number for the virtual machines so that Intune can recognize them. Follow Parallels' instructions for setting hardware type and serial number to set up the necessary settings for testing. We recommend that you match the hardware type of the device running the virtual machines to the hardware type of the virtual machines that you're creating. You can find this hardware type in Apple menu > About this Mac > System Report > Model Identifier.

For VMware Fusion, you need to edit the .vmx file to set the virtual machine's hardware model and serial number. We recommend that you match the hardware type of the device running the virtual machines to the hardware type of the virtual machines that you're creating. You can find this hardware type in Apple menu > About this Mac > System Report > Model Identifier.

User Approved enrollment

User Approved MDM enrollment is a type of macOS enrollment that you can use to manage certain security-sensitive settings. For more information, see Apple's support documentation.

As of June 2020, all new macOS MDM enrollments in Intune, including those not done through Automated Device Enrollment (ADE), are considered user approved. The end-user must manually install the management profile in System Preferences > Profiles, and thus provide approval of the management profile. System Preferences is launched automatically from the Company Portal app for BYOD macOS users. Instructions to install the management profile are provided in the Company Portal app.

BYOD macOS MDM enrollments prior to June 2020 may not be user approved if the end-user did not manually provide approval of the management profile in System Preferences > Profiles. For BYOD enrollments after June 2020, the Company Portal app launches System Preferences for the user and the user will need to select Install. If the user did not approve the management profile during enrollment, the user can go to System Preferences > Profiles, choose the management profile, and select Approve to approve the profile at a later point in time.

Find out if a device is User Approved

Using a vm for macos 10.13

  2. Choose Devices > All devices> choose the device > Hardware.
  3. Check the User approved enrollment field.

After macOS devices are enrolled, you can create custom settings for macOS devices.
