Microsoft is making it easier to install updates to Edge on macOS.

What you need to know

  • Microsoft is testing a new update experience for Edge on macOS.
  • The new experience is available for Edge Canary on Mac devices running Intel chips.
  • You have to enable a flag to use the new update experience.

Edge for Mac has been designed to be similar to the Edge experience on Windows, but Microsoft has added optimizations to make it feel more Mac-like. Extensions can be added from the Microsoft. How to Install Microsoft Edge on MacOS Once the user has downloaded it from the official website of MicrosoftEdgeInsider. Then the users can directly install it as the normal applications are installed. Microsoft has said that they will offer the same user interface, features, and the complete experience to the MacOS as same as Windows users. When looking for the Microsoft Edge app on your Mac, things are pretty much easier than what you would do on Windows. After you install Microsoft Edge on macOS, you can access it by opening the Finder app from your dock and then clicking on the ‘Applications’ folder from the left sidebar.

Microsoft Edge on macOS has a bit of an awkward update process, according to feedback the company has received. Microsoft is trying to improve the update process for Edge on macOS with a new Edge-native update experience. The experience is only currently available for Edge Canary on Macs running on Intel chips. You also have to enable a flag to use the new experience.

Microsoft describes the experience in a recent Tech Community post:

  • The new update experience is now Edge-native. It will solely be responsible for updating Edge-related products and will not be affected (e.g. blocked) by other pending product updates. Updates will happen automatically and silently, and no out-of-Edge notifications/toasts will be shown.
  • edge://settings/help now more consistently reflects update status and allows seamless updates. In-app update notifications are promptly reflected when an update becomes available.
  • When you restart the browser when an update is available, your browser will now instantly relaunch with the updated version rather than wait for update to be applied.

The biggest change in this new experience is that the update process is now Edge-native rather than going through Microsoft AutoUpdate. Updates should roll out quicker and more seamlessly with the new experience.

Microsoft says that the new experience will be available for Edge Canary on Macs running Apple's new silicon soon.

This article describes how to configure Microsoft Edge on macOS using a property list (.plist) file. You'll learn how to create this file and then deploy it to Microsoft Intune.

Configure Microsoft Edge policies on macOS

Macos Microsoft Edge Chromium

The first step is to create your plist. You can create the plist file with any text editor or you can use Terminal to create the configuration profile. However, it's easier to create and edit a plist file using a tool that formats the XML code for you. Xcode is a free integrated development environment that you can get from one of the following locations:

For a list of supported policies and their preference key names, see Microsoft Edge browser policies reference. In the policy templates file, which can be downloaded from the Microsoft Edge Enterprise landing page, there's an example plist (itadminexample.plist) in the examples folder. The example file contains all supported data types that you can customize to define your policy settings.

The next step after you create the contents of your plist, is to name it using the Microsoft Edge preference domain, com.microsoft.Edge. The name is case sensitive and should not include the channel you are targeting because it applies to all Microsoft Edge channels. The plist file name must be com.microsoft.Edge.plist.

Starting with build 78.0.249.2, all Microsoft Edge channels on macOS read from the com.microsoft.Edge preference domain. All prior releases read from a channel specific domain, such as com.microsoft.Edge.Dev for Dev channel.

The last step is to deploy your plist to your users' Mac devices using your preferred MDM provider, such as Microsoft Intune. For instructions see Deploy your plist.

Create a configuration profile using Terminal

  1. In Terminal, use the following command to create a plist for Microsoft Edge on your desktop with your preferred settings:

  2. Convert the plist from binary to plain text format:

After converting the file verify that your policy data is correct and contains the settings you want for your configuration profile.

Note

Only key value pairs should be in the contents of the plist or xml file. Prior to uploading your file into Intune remove all the <plist> and <dict> values, and xml headers from your file. The file should only contain key value pairs.

Deploy your plist

For Microsoft Intune create a new device configuration profile targeting the macOS platform and select the Preference file profile type. Target com.microsoft.Edge as the preference domain name and upload your plist. For more information see Add a property list file to macOS devices using Microsoft Intune.

For Jamf upload the .plist file as a Custom Settings payload.
