iOS 11 Mail app will support OAuth

Conditional Access with Intune supports more secure authentication on iOS devices with OAuth. To support this, there will now be a different flow on the Company Portal app for iOS to allow for more secure authentication. When end users try to sign in to a new Exchange account in the Mail app, they will see a web view prompt. Upon enrollment in Intune, users will see a prompt to allow the native Mail app to access a certificate. Most end users will not see any more quarantined emails. Existing mail accounts will continue to use basic authentication protocol, so these users will still have quarantine emails delivered to them. This sign in experience for end users is similar to the one on Office mobile apps.

Company Portal app for Android now has a new end-user experience for App Protection Policies

Based on customer feedback, we've modified the Company Portal app for Android to show an Access Company Content button.

The user will tap on the Access Company Content button instead of beginning to enroll the device.

New guided experience for Windows 10 Company Portal <!---1058938--->

The Company Portal app for Windows 10 will include a guided Intune walkthrough experience for devices that have not been identified or enrolled. The new experience provides step-by-step instructions that guide the user through registering into Azure Active Directory (required for Conditional Access features) and MDM enrollment (required for device management features). The guided experience will be accessible from the Company Portal home page. Users can continue to use the app if they do not complete registration and enrollment, but will experience limited functionality.

This update is only visible on devices running Windows 10 Anniversary Update (build 1607) or higher.

New menu action to easily remove Company Portal

Based on user feedback, the Company Portal app for Android has added a new menu action to initiate the removal of Company Portal from your device. This action removes the device from Intune management so that the app can be removed from the device by the user.

It then asks the user to confirm that they want to remove the Company Portal app by selecting "Yes".
