Microsoft Intune policy refresh intervals

EMS Landing page

What are the Microsoft Intune policy refresh intervals for the various device platforms?

I was asked this question recently and it's come up several times in the past on the TechNet forums.

The intervals are as follows:

iOS - Every 6hrs
Android - every 8hrs
Windows Phone – Every 8hrs
Full Windows OS - Every 24hrs

Original reference:


  1. Cool Information Gerry! But one Query:

    Are the Policies PUSHED by servers every 6/8/24 hours
    does the devices(iOS, Windows, Android, Windows PC) tries to fetch the policies at the times specified?

    1. These are the intervals in which the device connects to Intune to retrieve its policy.
