Simplifying Mobile Device Management for Apple Devices with Jamf Pro

Amazon EC2 Mac instances provide Apple hardware to develop for iOS and macOS at scale. Dependencies for building apps require privileged access, normally needing manual user approval. By enrolling EC2 Macs into Mobile Device Management (MDM) with Jamf Pro, administrators can automate remote configuration and software deployment without per-instance interaction. After launching an instance and installing required profiles with Jamf, users should create an AMI to retain the instance state.
