- Apple Remote Desktop lets you install software programs and applications, and perform updates on an unlimited number of Mac computers in your network simultaneously. The only computer you actually have to touch is yours. It gives you the freedom to schedule tasks without interrupting the user or requiring any interaction.
- Mac computers must be running OS X 10.10.5 or later. Mac client computers must have version 3.6 or later of the Remote Desktop client software for full control. Although you may be able to control and observe Mac computers using earlier versions of the Remote Desktop client software, you can’t generate reports or execute remote commands.
- Obviously, there is no Microsoft Desktop Connection application preinstalled on Mac or iPad, and Apple does not provide built-in remote connection tools. Luckily Microsoft got your back. If you want to use Remote Desktop Connection on Mac or iPad, all you need to do is simply download the Application and set up Remote Desktop Connection.
Apple Remote Desktop lets you manage multiple Mac computers across your network. Mac computers managed by Apple Remote Desktop receive updates to the Apple Remote Desktop Client software along with macOS updates.
Apple Remote Desktop gives you more than a dozen commands you can use to control your remote systems easily. You can shut down all systems simultaneously, put to sleep, wake up, or restart any or all computers—all without leaving your desk. You also have the ability to remotely designate the startup disk for your client Mac computers.
Apple Remote Desktop requires macOS 10.14.6 or later.
