Since OS X Lion Server release alongside the standard version of Lion, It has not gotten much attention. However, Lion users will be happy to know that you can actually manage your iOS device’s settings straight from OS X Lion Server.
The basic aim of providing such a feature seems to be heading towards system admins and those dealing with multiple iDevices will require similar setting configurations.
AnandTech discovered this great feature, and the site speculates that this is just an indication of how Apple plans to merge iOS and OS X together.
“To manage iOS, Lion Server administrators can use the new Profile Manager to create XML files called Profiles – these profiles can then be downloaded by users, or pushed out to users devices by administrators to manage email settings, password requirements, network settings, and even remotely lock and wipe devices in the event of theft.”
While we’re definitely at least five years away from iOS and OS X totally merging, there seems to be no doubt that Apple will eventually dissolve its desktop operating system into iOS.
