For all your institutionally-owned devices, teachers and students can get up and running quickly. With an MDM solution in place, you can rest assured that your devices are properly configured — without the need for staging services that prep devices before deployment. No further setup is required to enroll.
With the Device Enrollment Program, you can choose to supervise iOS devices. Supervision, an iOS-only feature, provides a higher level of device management, allowing additional restrictions such as turning off iMessage or Game Center — as well as other device configurations and features such as web content filtering and single app mode.
It’s simple for users to set up their iPad or Mac, right out of the box. The built-in Setup Assistant guides them through the steps. With the Device Enrollment Program, you can specify that certain screens will be skipped during setup, speeding up the process for your users.
MDM enrollment on an iOS device can be enforced and locked every time a user goes through the setup process. This means your institution’s devices are locked into MDM management. And if a student needs to reset their device, they can easily get right back to the correct settings.
Whether your institution-owned devices are purchased directly from Apple or through participating Apple Authorized Resellers and carriers, in just a few simple steps you can get started using the Device Enrollment Program.1Enroll now
