Apple Business Manager is a portal for administrators to manage the Device Enrollment program (DEP), Volume Purchase Program (VPP), Apple IDs, and content distribution in their organizations. Apple Business Manager with Workspace ONE UEM powered by AirWatch Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution makes it easy to enroll devices and deploy content.

Apple Business Manager has consolidated the management features that you have been using through the DEP and VPP portals. Once your organization upgrades to Apple Business Manager from Apple Deployment programs, the DEP and VPP portals will no longer be used to manage devices, assignments, apps purchases, or manage content.

For more information, see Apple Business Manager or contact your Apple representative.


  • If you are using DEP, upgrade to Apple Business Manager.
    Note: Once upgraded to new Apple Business Manager portal, you will have no access to the Apple Deployment programs.
  • If you are using only Volume Purchase Program, you need to first enroll in Apple Business Manager and then invite VPP purchasers to your new Apple Business Manager account.
