To maximize the benefits of Apple devices enrolled in Mobile Device Management (MDM), Apple has introduced the Device Enrollment Program (DEP). With DEP, you can perform the following.

  • Install a non-removable MDM profile on a device, preventing end users from being able to delete it.
  • Provision devices in Supervised mode (iOS only). Devices in Supervised mode can access additional security and configuration settings.
  • Enforce an enrollment for all end users.
  • Meet your organization's needs by customizing and streamline the enrollment process.
  • Prevent iCloud back up by disabling users from signing in with their Apple ID when generating a DEP profile.
  • Force OS updates for all end users.

For more information, see the Apple Business Support Portal portal or the Apple Device Enrollment Program Guide, or contact your Apple representative.
