If you are looking for how to restore a deleted Jamf profile in order to remove it, I’ll cover that at the bottom. expand full story

Many of you know me from my writing here at 9to5Mac. I post a few articles each week that are mainly opinion, but in my day job, I run IT for a school in Chattanooga, TN. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be working through a few tips, tricks, and workflows for best practices with device management for the Apple-focused organization.

Today, I’m happy to say that we’re kicking it off with a brand new webinar on the top mistakes that Apple IT managers make. In this video (below), I work through each mistake and explain why it’s a problem.

Since March of 2018, I’ve written a weekly column called Making the Grade covering Apple in K-12 education. A lot of the content I’ve wanted to cover has leaned a little into the enterprise (corporate world), so I’ve created a new column called Apple @ Work where I will talk about more enterprise content with how it relates to Apple. I will be moving Making the Grade to every other Saturday, with Apple @ Work publishing on the other Saturday.

In the first installment, I cover the Top 3 mistakes Apple IT managers make including a 25-minute webinar video available now (below).
