I’m going to try something different for this post. Instead of solving a technical problem or analzying an element of Apple device management, I’m going to propose a new feature. This particular feature has been on my mind since 2018 when I first opened an Apple enterprise support case asking product engineering to consider it for their future roadmap. Of course that’s mostly wishful thinking. What I want is not what everyone wants. Even years later though, I can’t shake the feeling this would help in a variety of scenarios. What I’m proposing is a managed AirDrop feature, and I hope after reading through why you’ll file feedback too.
This post mainly exists to shamelessly promote my Jamf feature request to add support for RebuildKernelCache. Before jumping into the details, go upvote that feature request. You can always go backtrack later to downvote me if by the end you decide it’s not worth the support.
