Apple partner JAMF files to go public after almost two decades helping companies use Apple products

In the first quarter, revenue climbed 37% from a year ago, to $60.4 million, and the company's gross margin rose to 75% from 70%, as more customers turned to its subscription offering.

Prior to the iPhone's rise last decade, companies tended to rely on PCs running software from Microsoft and other vendors, and a myriad of phones from different providers.

Just last week the iPhone maker announced the acquisition of Fleetsmith , a four-year-old company, whose software makes it easier to remotely configure, wipe and deploy devices.

"However, Apple could leverage this platform, whether through additional investment or the consolidation of other competitors of ours, to compete more directly with the scale and breadth of product offerings we provide," the filing warns.

The coronavirus, which sent office workers and students across the country home in February and March, has underscored the need for companies to adopt remote management technologies , the filing says.

"While these trends were gaining mind share prior to the pandemic, recent challenges have added momentum to these digital transformation changes that will last long after the struggles related to COVID-19 have passed."
