This page provides an overview of the new enterprise APIs, features, and behavior changes introduced in Android 13 (API level 33).
New Security Logs
To standardize the audit output on the device to meet the requirements of the Common Criteria Protection Profile for Mobile Device Fundamentals (PP_MDF), additional audit events have been added to the SecurityLog that were previously only available in logcat. The events are focused on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
In Android 13 (API level 33) and higher, internet connectivity is required by default to provision company-owned devices. If a device is expected to be provisioned offline or in a closed-network environment, EMMs must include the following flag in the provisioning extras:
DevicePolicyManager.EXTRA_PROVISIONING_ALLOW_OFFLINE = "android.app.extra.PROVISIONING_ALLOW_OFFLINE"
Provisioning without internet connectivity results in a loss of functionality, so EMMs should only use this flag when devices can't access the internet as part of deployment requirements.
Android 13 (API level 33) and higher includes the following notable API deprecation:
android.app.extra.PROVISIONING_LOGO_URIis fully deprecated in Android 13 and higher. Logo customization is no longer supported during the provisioning flows.
