When using Apple Education with managed devices, select device deployments specifically for students and teachers.

Shared iPad Deployments

Deploy education functionality to Shared iPads that are checked in and checked out by multiple users. Users are configured in bulk in Apple School Manager. Education settings are pushed to device carts and assigned to the class.

  • iPads must be supervised.
  • iPads must meet all hardware requirements.
  • iPads are enabled as a Shared iPad.
  • iPads have a specific number of cached users associated with them.
  • Student data is stored separately on the iPad and pushed to iCloud Drive or other cloud-based solutions that use apps from the App Store.

One-to-One Deployments

Deploy education functionality to individual devices which are only used by one person. This person may be a teacher or a student. Education settings are configured when classes are created and members are mapped to classes in the UEM console and pushed to devices.

  • iPads have one unique enrollment user associated with it.
  • iPads must meet all hardware requirements.
  • iPads must be supervised using the Device Enrollment Program or Apple Configurator 2.
