Manual iOS device enrollment

Updated on June 4th, 2024

This article explains how to enroll iOS devices in Miradore by downloading and installing Miradore's MDM profile to the devices.

This enrollment method is for non-DEP-associated iOS devices and those already in use. The method does not require resetting the devices during enrollment. The manual enrollment can be done with a QR code or by following step-by-step instructions.

How manual enrollment differs from DEP enrollment?

Apple DEP enrollment is preferred in most organizations for enrolling company-owned, DEP-associated devices because it enables the supervised mode of the devices. Supervision gives more management capabilities and prevents the removal of the MDM profile from the device. Device users with admin privileges can remove the profile from the manually enrolled non-DEP-associated devices if they wish to do so.


How to enroll an iOS device

1. To add an iOS device to Miradore, go to Enrollment > Enroll device and select the platform iOS/macOS.

3.  The system generates credentials for enrollment. Read the QR code with the device or follow the steps for enrollment. If you have chosen to send the invitation to the device user, the system sends the credentials to the device user. Please note that you can use this QR code for enrolling a single device to Miradore.

iOS hardware identification

Please note that once the enrollment is completed you will be shown the information below. It is worth noting that here the device model identifier shows differently from what it is known to the client side. As an example here what is known as iPhone 7 as their marketing name comes up as Apple iPhone 9,3.
