Supported operating systems and browsers in Intune
Before setting up Microsoft Intune, review the supported operating systems and browsers.
For more information on configuration service provider support, visit the Configuration service provider reference.
Intune now requires Android 5.x (Lollipop) or higher for applications and devices to access company resources via the Company Portal app for Android and the Intune App SDK for Android. This requirement does NOT apply to Polycom Android-based Teams devices running 4.4. These devices will continue to be supported.

- Apple iOS 11.0 and later

Customers with Enterprise Management + Security (EMS) can also use Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to register Windows 10 devices.
For guidelines on using Windows 10 virtual machines with Intune, see Using Windows 10 virtual machines.
Supported Samsung Knox Standard devices
To avoid Knox activation errors that prevent MDM enrollment, the Company Portal app only attempts Samsung Knox activation during MDM enrollment if the device appears in the list of supported Knox devices. Devices that don't support Samsung Knox activation enroll as standard Android devices. A Samsung device might have some model numbers that support Knox, while others don't. Verify Knox compatibility with your device reseller before you buy and deploy Samsung devices.
Enrolling Samsung Knox devices may require you to enable access to Samsung servers.
The following list of Samsung device models do not support Knox. They are enrolled as native Android devices by the Company Portal app for Android:

Microsoft announced that Windows 7 support ends on January 14th 2020. On this date, Intune also retires support for devices running Windows 7.

Microsoft Intune will retire support for the Silverlight-based Intune console on October 15, 2020. This retirement includes ending support for the Silverlight console configured PC software client (also known as the PC agent).
