Apple programmes for business.

Programmes and services from Apple make it easy to manage iOS devices and content so that IT can focus on what’s most important — helping employees transform the way they work.

Get apps and books in bulk.

Purchase world-class apps and engaging interactive books in volume, and equip your entire workforce with innovation. Through the VPP store, you can buy apps for both Mac and iOS, as well as books from the iBooks Store. Free apps and books are also available, so you can provide users with all the tools they need to get their jobs done.

Get customised B2B apps.

Expand the capabilities of your iPhone and iPad with customised apps. Customised B2B apps for iOS are built uniquely for you by third-party developers and procured privately through the VPP store, so your business gets exactly what it needs.

Streamline distribution.

Assign apps and books to users or groups through mobile device management (MDM) solutions — giving you complete ownership and control over your content. When apps are no longer needed, they can be reassigned to a different user. Or you can choose to distribute content via redeemable codes, permanently transferring the app or book directly to your users.

Simple steps for volume purchases.

In just a few straightforward steps, your business can be set up to purchase and distribute apps and books in volume.

Enrol.

Enrol in the Volume Purchase Programme by creating an Apple Deployment Programmes account and providing basic information about your business.1

Distribute.

Distribute content throughout the company by assigning apps directly to users or groups using an MDM solution. Or provide users with redeemable codes for each app or book.2

Zero-touch configuration.

Get your users up and running quickly without having to physically touch or prep devices. By automating MDM enrolment for large-scale iOS deployments, your users can immediately set up accounts, configure corporate policies and assign apps over the air.

Wireless supervision.

Supervision provides a higher level of device management for corporate-owned iOS devices. You can wirelessly enable this mode during setup, allowing additional restrictions such as turning off iMessage or AirDrop. Supervision also gives you additional device configurations and features, such as web-content filtering and single-app mode.

Streamlined setup.

DEP makes it even easier to set up users on iPad and iPhone. After devices are linked with your MDM server, users are guided through the activation process with the built-in Setup Assistant. You can streamline the setup even further for your users by specifying that certain screens be skipped during the initial device setup.

Sign up to streamline deployment.

Follow these simple steps to streamline your corporate-owned iOS deployments and get business users up and running quickly.

Enrol.

Enrol in the Device Enrolment Programme by creating an Apple Deployment Programmes account and providing basic information about your business, including details about your hardware purchases made directly from Apple or an Apple Authorised Reseller.

Set up.

Create additional administrator accounts for individuals who are responsible for managing and configuring your corporate-owned devices.

Link.

From the DEP website, establish a link to your physical MDM servers. A two-step verification process is used to securely authorise an MDM server.

Assign.

Assign devices to your virtual MDM server by serial number or by order number. You can even set up new devices to be automatically assigned to a virtual MDM server you designate.

Enrol.

Enrol in the Apple Developer Enterprise Programme to build and distribute proprietary iOS apps to your employees. You’ll need to provide your company’s D-U-N-S Number and verify you have the legal authority to sign the programme agreements.

Develop.

Get access to all the technical information and resources you need to design, develop and test your internal iOS apps, including pre-release versions of iOS and the iOS SDK.

Test.

Test your app in a real-world environment. Using the iOS Simulator, you can install, test and debug your code directly on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices that your in-house app supports.

Distribute.

Determine how your internal apps will be distributed to employees. Host them on a web server, use a third-party MDM solution or build an internal app that catalogues all your apps together.

Ready for business.

With iPhone, iPad and a powerful selection of Mac notebooks and desktops, you have everything you need to reinvent the way you run your business. And now with Apple Watch, you have even more ways to stay productive.
