Get your applications ready for BlackBerry 10 OS 10.3.3! We’ve just released beta autoloaders for 10.3.3, which you can get from the software update page.
There have not been any changes or additions to APIs in 10.3.3, so your applications that support 10.3.2 should also work fine on 10.3.3. But here is your chance to try it for yourself.
Similar to the previous beta releases, these autoloaders contain a reduced set of BlackBerry 10 applications compared to a full OS release and are intended for application testing, not regular use.
BlackBerry OS 10.3.2 included anti-theft protection that prevented downgrading of the OS. This is also present in 10.3.3, which means that you won’t be able to downgrade to 10.3.2 after installing a 10.3.3 autoloader. Your device will remain on the limited 10.3.3 beta until the gold release of 10.3.3. Before loading you should also make note of the BlackBerry ID account used on the device because you’ll need to log back into the same one after the load is complete.
So go ahead and load your test devices but consider these restrictions if you were thinking of loading this on your primary BlackBerry 10 device.

In the BES12 v12.3 release we added support to manage a Windows 10 computer. We have expanded that with support for Mac OS X in BES12 v12.4. You can now use BES12 to Activate an OS X device with ActiveSync.
The process for activating a Mac OS X device is similar to what we did previously with Windows 10 (or other mobile devices). Here is a great little video with the process:
Activate an OS X device or computer
The BES12.4 Admin guide describes the process in detail here.
When activated, you can expect the following:
Control your devices with various IT policies and actions
Configure Wi-Fi profile
Configure 3rd party VPNs
And of course, email/PIM ActiveSync support
Like we did for Windows 10, If you’re wondering what it looks like on an actual Macintosh, here is an activated Mac screen on a BES12.4.1 server, with our activated profile, ready to go.

Now you can manage both Windows 10 AND Mac OS X on your BES12.4. What comes next, stay tuned.
