    This is true not just for Windows devices, but for all supported OSes.

    To respond to ON's input below, this issue has many impacts; the most important to me are:
    - Reporting -- e.g. group membership numbers and app install data are not correct when duplicates are present.
    - Licensing -- duplicate objects retain app licenses that they aren't using.
    - Wasted time -- if you need to locate a specific device, e.g to remotely lock it, it's tedious to look through duplicates to find the correct one.

    So it's not an issue of just seeing multiple object with the same name; that can certainly happen -- it's an issue of seeing multiple objects that have the same hardware info, including serial number, IMEI, etc, only one of which is "real" and current. It's true that these devices get different Device IDs, but that's not helpful in determining which are "dead" duplicates.

    The dead objects will eventually get purged via Device Cleanup Rules, but there's no reason to keep known duplicates around in most use cases.

    We could use PowerShell to do this by comparing the Last Contact attribute for devices with the same serial number, but it would be great to have a "remove duplicates" feature in the GUI to do this. (You would want to be able to review the results before committing them, of course...)

    I suspect the reason that this feature doesn't exist yet is because Intune does not include GPS tracking in the "Comp(any) Portal" app, on any OS. (In iOS, Intune uses iOS's built-in "Find My..." functionality instead.) Other MDMs do include GPS location tracking in their portal apps, which then allows devices of any OS to be tracked. It would be great if Intune would start doing this as well.
