iOS-comparison-listChoosing the right MDM (Mobile Device Management) provider for iOS can be a challenge. Take a look at this comprehensive list of MDM solutions. Does yours support iOS7?

While Apple might have released the iOS 7 MDM API — allowing third-parties to control iOS devices via MDM — it still requires the MDM provider to have updated their software to support the new version of iOS. Currently, of the 48 biggest MDM solutions, only 7 support iOS7.

Those 7 MDM providers are: Airwatch, Amtel, Apple Profile Manager, Casper Suite, DeviceLink, Excitor, Mobile Iron, Relution, Sophos, Tangoe, and Tarmac. The education favourite, Meraki, does not currently support the new iOS 7 options, and there is no news as to when this support will be provided. provides a comprehensive list of all the major MDM providers and allows you to filter them by features.
