iOS 16 Compatible Devices (Query)


Details on identifying compatible devices for iOS 16 using the Command Line API to create a Query in FileWave Central and FileWave Anythere. 


Inventory Queries to list device compatibility

Example query view:


  • Administrator Application Token (base 64)
  • FW Admin Inventory Query

Compatible Query

Incompatible Query




Requires the creation of Inventory Queries.  Two queries are available, one listing incompatible devices and one listing compatible devices.  To upload the queries involves using the FWAdmin CLI (Command Line Interface).

Obtain the Administrator Application Token (base 64), then use the following format to upload each Inventory Query to the server.  For example:

  • Token(base 64): eaIaY2Q2MjAkLTVmMzItMGU3AC1kYTcyLTU1NLc4NzNlNDc0An0=
  • Server Address:
  • File: ios16_compatible.json

Command Line API POST

You'll have the downloaded file in the same directory as where you run the below command. The below example uses the ios16_compatible.json but you can change that easily.

Shell Script:

curl -s -k -H "Authorization: eaIaY2Q2MjAkLTVmMzItMGU3AC1kYTcyLTU1NLc4NzNlNDc0An0=" --header "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -d @ios16_compatible.json


$uri = ''
$headers = @{
    'Authorization' = 'eaIaY2Q2MjAkLTVmMzItMGU3AC1kYTcyLTU1NLc4NzNlNDc0An0='
    'Content-Type' = 'application/json'
$body = Get-Content -Raw -Path 'ios16_compatible.json'

$response = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $uri -Headers $headers -Method Post -Body $body

# Process the response as needed
