For successful distribution of VPP content to end users, perform all steps of the deployment process. In return, end users must complete all steps on their devices to receive VPP content.

Users that have multiple Apple iOS devices must select and apply a single Apple ID to all the devices. If admins make content available on demand, then users can accept the invitation and join and register with the VPP. They install the content from the catalog to any of their devices.


  1. Admins send VPP content to end users.
    1. Purchase content and download your sToken from the Apple iTunes Store.
    2. Upload the sToken to Workspace ONE UEM.
      You can use multiple sTokens within your Workspace ONE UEM hierarchy but you can only have one sToken in each organization group.
    3. Sync licenses to display the content in the console.
    4. Add the bundle IDs for custom applications. This action activates management.
      This step is unnecessary for non-B2B applications and books.
    5. Allocate licenses and assign licenses to smart groups, and enable eligible applications for device-based assignment, if applicable. Then publish managed distribution content with the flexible deployment feature.
      Publishing content triggers invitations to end users whose content is tied to their Apple IDs.
  2. End-Users accept invitations and receive content.
    1. Accept the invitation and register with the Apple VPP.
      This step is not necessary for device-based use.
      This step ensures that they have the terms of agreement for participating in the program.
    2. Obtain the license from Workspace ONE UEM.
      This step occurs automatically when admins publish content.
    3. Install content from the catalog.
