To deploy books to devices, the environment must meet a few requirements for platform, operating system, and access.


AirWatch supports Apple iOS for book functionality.

Operating Systems

Devices can receive books from AirWatch when they run a minimum iOS 5+.

Push Mode for All Books

AirWatch pushes books to devices using the On Demand Push Mode. This feature allows device users to install books from the book catalog at their convenience.

Required App to Access Managed Internal Books

Devices that need access to managed internal books must have the iBooks application on them. Internal books for iOS 8+ that are managed open in the iBooks application and do not open in Safari.

Removal of Books Not Automatic

When a device unenrolls from the AirWatch solution, AirWatch does not remove Books from devices because books most books are not managed. AirWatch can only remove internal books marked as Is Managed for iOS 8+.
