There appear to be a couple of snags in the latest iteration of macOS Sonoma that are upsetting to Apple admins: Some USB hubs are no longer recognized by the Mac and a popular command tool used to restart services on remote Apple devices is no longer supported. Why isn’t my USB hub working? The USB hub issue is emerging across the Apple web at the moment, including on Apple’s own support forums and Reddit.

Whether IT wants to go all in on open-source tools or integrate those tools  with commercial offerings, it’s possible to develop a do-it-yourself approach to mobile device management (MDM).
