Enrollment through DEP is required for Shared iPads and suggested for one-to-one devices to enable supervision on devices. After you create class rosters and configure your MDM server container, create an MDM configuration profile for devices using the Device Enrollment Program (DEP) wizard in the AirWatch Console. For more information on configuring DEP profiles and syncing them in the AirWatch Console, see the VMware AirWatch Guide for the Apple Device Enrollment Program, available on AirWatch Resources.
Build one profile for either Shared iPads or one-to-one devices using wizard now, and then select Add Profile to create additional profiles if you are deploying both shared and single-user devices. To do this, navigate back to the Device Enrollment Program window in the AirWatch Console and continue using the DEP profile wizard.
If you do not use the DEP option, then you must supervise devices using Apple Configurator 2 and enroll devices through the Web or the AirWatch Agent.
