Supported Apple device management tools
Apple Business Manager and Apple School Manager
Apple Business Manager (ABM) is Apple’s own web-portal where IT administrators can centrally enroll and manage all their Apple devices. Apple School Manager (ASM) is a similar program for schools and other educational institutions.
Apple Business Manager was launched in 2018, integrating Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) and Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) into a single platform.
Apple Device Enrollment Program (Apple DEP)
Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) is part of Apple Business/School Manager and it helps IT admins to simplify initial device setup. With Apple DEP, you can automate and enforce the enrollment of your devices and ship devices directly to device users and manage them straight out of the box.
In practice, DEP enrolls your devices in Miradore when a user starts up the device for the first time or does a factory reset. After that, the management solution sets up your device according to your organization’s IT policies defined in Miradore.
Apple Volume Purchase Program (Apple VPP)
Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) is part of Apple Business/School Manager. With VPP, you can buy and install apps for users silently. Moreover, you can buy all your licenses in one place, and distribute and revoke them as necessary.
Choose the right management methods for your devices
The preferred method for company-owned devices
The supervised mode gives greater control over iPhones and iPads owned by a company as it enables additional device configurations and features.
By default, iOS/iPadOS devices are not supervised but the supervised mode can be set to devices using Apple Business/School Manager.
A good option for personal devices that are already in use
The unsupervised mode can be used for personal devices that are not owned by the company.
Compared to the supervised mode, it has more limited management options, but a selective wipe can be used to remove installed business applications and configurations if an employee leaves the company.
The unsupervised mode is a good option for devices that are already in use as the supervised mode requires a reset when turned on.
YoungCapital saves 200 hours annually on setting up employees’ iPhones
YoungCapital, one of the largest recruitment technology firms in Europe, realized it needed a solution for iOS management. Some employees were changing sim cards, and there was no complete knowledge of the phone’s ownership or whereabouts.
“Facilitating the software setup is key to both the employee’s working experience and the operational success of the company. With Miradore, we saved 200 hours annually on setting up iPhones,” says Remon Van der Doorn of YoungCapital.
