Sync Apple DEP and Google Mobile Device Management servers on demand

Quick summary 

For select Google Workspace editions, admin can now trigger an on demand sync between Apple DEP and Google Mobile Device Management (MDM) servers for company owned devices. Additionally, they will also be able to see when this sync was last triggered. 

While this sync takes place automatically once every several hours, admins can now request this sync on demand for time sensitive needs. For example, admins can use this option to start a sync immediately for sensitive inventory changes on Apple devices. 

The “Sync DEP Devices” option in the Admin console under Devices > Mobile and endpoints > iOS Settings > Apple certificates.
