      Hi John,

      2X MDM is free to use at the moment as we’re still in Beta.

      Tracking hasn’t been enabled on iOS yet, but will be supported shortly.

      2X MDM is an online service, so you can use it on any operating system that supports web browsers, e.g. Windows.

      If you have any further questions, please contact me

      Warm regards,
