Apple provides powerful tools and programs to simplify deployment of iPad and Mac, so you can get students and teachers up and running quickly — empowering newfound creativity and a world of new learning experiences.
Coming this fall.
iOS 9 makes it easier than ever to deploy and manage your institution’s devices, apps, and content.
Assign and distribute apps directly to iPad and Mac, no Apple ID required. It’s that easy.
Distribute apps directly to devices.
Assign and distribute apps directly to iPad and Mac using the Volume Purchase Program (VPP), mobile device management (MDM) and Apple Configurator 2. Your students can get up and running in no time, whether your devices are assigned to a user or not. And migration to device-based app assignment is completely seamless for your existing deployments.
With new enhancements to mobile device management (MDM) capabilities, iOS 9 gives your technology team more ways to manage apps and devices throughout your institution.
Apps fully managed.
With MDM you can install apps for your students and staff even if access to the App Store is restricted. iOS also now allows MDM to manage apps already installed on devices, all without reinstalling those apps.
Teachers and staff can now better manage their classrooms with restrictions that turn off AirDrop or prevent changes to passcodes, device names and wallpapers on managed devices.
Prompt users to update.
Keep your school’s devices up to date by sending an MDM command to prompt users to update, available for any device in the Device Enrollment Program. You can initiate both the download and installation of software updates.
Introducing Apple Configurator 2.
Apple Configurator is redesigned with an entirely new user interface and delivers powerful new management capabilities. It’s now easier to set up and deploy groups of similarly configured iOS devices.
With Apple Configurator 2 you can now organize all your devices from a single view. It’s easy to tag devices by classroom, user name, grade level, or anything that suits your needs.
Blueprints make it possible to save configuration settings and apply them across multiple devices, or even multiple Apple Configurator stations. And with Automator and scripting support you can easily integrate actions into your configuration workflows.
Apple Configurator 2 integrates seamlessly with the Device Enrollment Program to streamline device enrollment with MDM servers. It also works with device-based app assignment through the Volume Purchase Program.
