After Android 12’s extensive revamp, the most recent Android version, often known as Android Tiramisu, includes substantial improvements. Developers may now make their builds compatible with the most recent Android version because the source code is readily available on AOSP.
With the recent release of Google’s Android 13, 42Gears has improved its offering so IT administrators using SureMDM, 42Gears’ leading mobile device management solution, can continue to protect, monitor, and manage recently-updated Android devices with simplicity.
Android 13 requires users to allow runtime permissions for sending notifications from any app; notifications won’t be allowed by default. The same holds true while using the 42Gears Android MDM app too. Bluetooth Manager will no longer work for device administrator as Google has deprecated a few APIs for the same. It will only work for Device Owner mode, and 42Gears has already updated those APIs so its customers can continue to work with the Bluetooth Manager.
According to Prakash Gupta, co-founder and COO of 42Gears Mobility Systems, “the majority of our products, including SureMDM, SureLock, SureFox, and SureVideo are fully compatible with Android 13. We’ve also introduced some changes in them while upgrading our products to support the new Android version. Businesses that want to upgrade to Android 13 will discover that, in accordance with 42Gears:
“Given that businesses are adopting either fully remote or hybrid work environments, they need to invest in a robust and reliable device management tool now more than ever. By providing support for Android 13 early on, our objective is to make our MDM platform extremely practical and compatible – one that can take the pain out of Android device management,” reiterated Prakash.
