Apple notification services

Tools > Modern Device Management > MDM Configurations > Apple > Apple Push Notification service

Endpoint Manager uses the Apple Push Notification Service (APNs) to communicate with Apple devices, which requires you to have an APNs certificate. Once you have obtained an APNs certificate, communication will be enabled, and you will be able to enroll and manage Apple devices.

APNs certificates expire after a year. You must replace the certificate before it expires, or else you will be required to re-enroll devices.

NOTE: As of March 31, 2021, APNs requires HTTP/2 communication protocols. Apple mobile device management servers now have the following requirements: Windows Server 2016 or newer, NetCore 3.1 runtime or newer, port 443. For more information, see the Ivanti Community article: EPM MDM APNS Service.

NOTE: Due to Adobe Flash being discontinued, the LANDesk APNs portal will stop working in December 2020. This has two outcomes, depending on the version of Endpoint Manager you are using:
Version 2019.1 or older. You will only be able to renew your certificate through December 2020. After that time, you will be required to upgrade to create and renew APNs certificates.
Version 2020 or newer. The new Ivanti APNs wizard will be in place before December 2020. You will not have to make any changes.
