Important: APIs under the / beta version in Microsoft Graph are in preview and are subject to change. Use of these APIs in production applications is not supported. Note: Using the Microsoft Graph APIs to configure Intune controls and policies still requires that the Intune service is correctly licensed by the customer.

Device categories provides a way to organize your devices. Using device categories, company administrators can define their own categories that make sense to their company. These categories can then be applied to a device in the Intune Azure console or selected by a user during device enrollment. You can filter reports and create dynamic Azure Active Directory device groups based on device categories.
