Remotely restart devices with Intune

The Restart device action causes the device you choose to be restarted (within 5 minutes). The device owner isn't automatically notified of the restart, and they might lose work.

Supported platforms

  • Windows - Supported on Windows 8.1 and later

  • Windows Phone - Supported on Windows Phone 8.1 and later

  • Android kiosk devices - Supported on Android 7.0 and later

  • iOS/iPadOS - Supported

    Note

    This command requires a supervised device and the Device Lock access right. The device restarts immediately. Passcode-locked iOS/iPadOS devices don't rejoin a Wi-Fi network after restart. After restart, the device might not be able to communicate with the server.

  • macOS - Not supported

  • Android and Android work profile devices - Not supported
