To distribute public applications and custom applications to large deployments of Apple iOS and macOS devices, integrate Workspace ONE UEM with Apple Business Manager. 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 Workspace ONE UEM 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 information on the Device Enrollment Program (DEP) and the Volume Purchase Program (VPP), see Apple Business Manager .

Volume Purchase Program (VPP)

To distribute App Store applications and custom applications to Apple iOS and macOS devices, utilize Volume Purchase Program by integrating Apple Business Manager and Workspace ONE UEM.

The Apple Business Manager enables organizations to purchase publicly available applications for distribution. Any paid application from the App Store is available for purchase, in volume, at the existing App Store price. Custom applications can be free or purchased at a price set by the developer.

See Apple's website for the availability by country and for other details.
