Parallels Extends Free iPad and iPhone Management for Parallels Mac Management 8.5 Customers – Including Free Trial and New Customers – Until the End of April 2021


The incredible response to our June announcement that Parallels is including FREE iPad and iPhone management features with Parallels® Mac Management 8.5 for Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (SCCM) until the end of 2020 inspired us to extend this offer until the end of April 2021. 

Enterprise IT managers can continue to use Microsoft Endpoint Manager on premises to control PC, Mac, iPad, and iPhone devices with full inventory management on one infrastructure by using Parallels Mac Management 8.5. 

Parallels Mac Management 8.5 is the only solution that enables SCCM management and central inventory of all Apple devices—along with Windows devices—through the Microsoft SCCM control panel. Parallels Mac Management delivers improved SCCM security, stability, and scalability and eliminates the need for a separate, expensive infrastructure or additional resources to manage Apple devices .  

Adding Parallels Mac Management 8.5 to Microsoft SCCM makes it simple, fast, and secure for IT admins to do a lot more than simply manage PCs―and to do it through the familiar Microsoft SCCM control panel. 

User-Initiated Enrollment: Managers can simply send a link to users to enroll their iOS and macOS devices into Microsoft Endpoint Management. 

Reporting Inventory: Parallels Mac Management 8.5 can collect device information to create a central inventory of all enrolled Apple and Windows devices.
