Supported device operating systems

Note:

This article covers supported device operating systems for XenMobile Server 10.11. For operating systems supported for Endpoint Management, see Supported device operating systems.

XenMobile supports devices running the following platforms and operating systems for enterprise mobility management, including app and device management. Because of platform restrictions and security features, XenMobile doesn’t support all functionality on all platforms.

The supported device platform information in this article also applies to XenMobile connector for Exchange ActiveSync and Citrix Gateway connector for Exchange ActiveSync.

Note:

Citrix supports, at a minimum, the current and prior version of each major operating system platform. Not all features of the newer version of XenMobile work on older platform releases.

To enable the Samsung Knox API:
    1. Purchase a Samsung Knox license by using the Samsung Knox License Management System (KLMS).
    2. Deploy the Samsung ELM key.
  • HTC: For HTC-specific policies, HTC API version 0.5.0
  • Sony: For Sony-specific policies, Sony Enterprise SDK 2.0

Android considerations

Before upgrading to the Android Q platform: See Migrate from device administration to Android Enterprise for information about how the deprecation of Google Device Administration APIs impacts devices running Android Q.

  • Citrix recommends that you avoid enrolling Android Q devices in legacy device administration mode. Google is deprecating Device Administration APIs, which impact devices running Android Q. After the APIs get deprecated, enrollment of Android Q devices in legacy device administration mode will fail.
  • Citrix recommends using Android Enterprise for Android Q devices. For more information, see Migrate from device administration to Android Enterprise.
  • The Google API change doesn’t impact devices enrolled in MAM-only mode.

Before upgrading to the Android P platform:

  • Ensure that your server infrastructure is compliant with security certificates that have a matching host name in the subjectAltName (SAN) extension.
  • To verify a host name, the server must present a certificate with a matching SAN. Citrix trusts certificates only if they contain a SAN that matches the host name.
  • For details, see the Android Developer site article on Android P behavior changes.

With the release of Android O (version 8):

  • SSLv3 is not supported with Android O. Google no longer supports SSLv3 connections. This means that mobile productivity apps running on Android O devices cannot connect to internal servers that are using SSLv3 connections. If you have servers leveraging SSLv3, it’s important to address this limitation before rolling out Android O to avoid connectivity failures with users.
  • Support ended for Android 4.4x as of the version 10.6.20 public app store release of Citrix mobile productivity apps.
  • Citrix mobile productivity apps and MDX-wrapped apps are available on Android devices with ARM-based processors. They are not supported on Intel x86 or x64-based Android devices.

BlackBerry

Management of BlackBerry devices is provided through XenMobile connector for Exchange ActiveSync. For details, see XenMobile connector for Exchange ActiveSync.
