Workspace ONE UEM powered by AirWatch provides you with a set of mobility management solutions for enrolling, securing, configuring, and managing your Windows device deployment. To use Workspace ONE UEM's management solutions, meet the requirements to enroll supported Windows devices. Management solution availability depends on the Windows OS version of your devices.
Workspace ONE UEM supports Windows 11 devices. When configuring the console, use the Windows Desktop option because this option works for Windows 10 and Windows 11 devices. Windows 11 is built on the same foundation as Windows 10 so features in Workspace ONE UEM that are available for Windows 10 are also available for Windows 11. If you find a Workspace ONE UEM feature that works on Windows 10 but not on Windows 11, let us know by contacting VMware Global Services.
For details on Windows 11, see Microsoft's documentation on What's new in Windows.
