Simple setup for learning.

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 new‑found creativity and a world of new learning experiences.

Coming this autumn.

iOS 9 makes it easier than ever to deploy and manage your institution’s devices, apps and content.

Easily deploy apps.

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 Programme (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.

Better management.

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.

More controls.

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 Enrolment Programme. 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.

Get started today.

Powerful tools and programs from Apple help you deploy devices currently running iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. Apple Deployment Programmes provide everything you need to bring amazing devices, content and learning experiences to your institution.

Deploy and manage devices
and content at scale.

With a mobile device management solution, you can easily set up and manage iPad and Mac over the air.
