  • I think that it's been discussed, but can't say for sure one way or the other. You should communicate this as a design change request up your Microsoft support channels.

  • Intune utilises the Apple APN Push service to communicate with iOS devices. Is there something specific you are trying to send? It could be that you can configure this in the Intune console.

  • APN messages are not instant/text messages, they are data messages meant for application consumption, not user consumption.

    So, what are you really wanting to do here?

  • Hi

    Use APNS to push a message to a user for a compliance issue or use in a recovery situation where the mail server is unavailable.  Would also want to use the C2DM server where possible. 

    APNS messages can be used for instant messages in the form of either a message, a badge or a sound unless it is a silent notification to wake up an application.

    See Jasons reply (quoted here).

  • OK, let me rephrase the question slightly.  Does the iOS client have the ability to receive APNS messages to alert the user of a compliance issue, a system update or another service affecting issue.  It is possible in other EMM platforms and is invaluable in DR/BC situations where core systems and not available are is it a case of using a third party APNS gateway to alert users.

    Thanks

  • No, there is no built-in way to send an alert or message to the end-user using Intune.
