new "Keep app up to date" option for Apps on iOS

I just noticed when setting up a new iOS App today there is a Option called "Keep app up to date"

 

The tip bubble says "Automatically keep app up to date with the latest version available. When a target device checks in and an app update is available, an app upgrade request will be automatically sent to the device."

 

Has anyone heard or seen this before?

No I just noticed it myself when setting up a new App. That'll be quite handy as now we won't have to go through each individual app and push out updates.

Thanks for posting this.  I just watched a JAMF webinar covering their new MDM features for iOS 11.3 and was looking for something similar from Meraki.

Re: new "Keep app up to date" option for Apps on iOS

Has anyone had success with this new feature? After checking the box on a few apps and waiting for iOS 11.3 devices to checkin, I do not see any app updates. Instead I see the following message in the Event Log...

error: The operation couldn’t be completed. (com.apple.softwareupdateservices.errors error 3.), status: Error

I'm seeing the same issue with the app not updating. Getting that same error in the event log.

Waited a few days but it's still not working. Anyone managed to get it working, or know what's causing the error?

 

Also, does anyone know if this will force apps to update if they are connected to Mobile/Cellular data, or Wi-Fi only? I wouldn't want apps to update if the device wasn't on Wi-Fi as this would quickly use up the users entire mobile data allowance.

Same problem here.

Looks like we got all excited over nothing...
