Workspace ONE UEM allows you to upload paid public iOS applications and distribute them in those scenarios where it is not feasible to use Apple's Volume Purchase Program (VPP). Also for the iOS devices you can configure extra restrictions on the App Store functionality, including the App Store icon and installation of public apps.Workspace ONE UEM can distribute several OS versions, but iOS 9+ management does not require users to take extra steps. It is best to use the Apple VPP, if possible. The VPP can manage bulk public paid applications efficiently and offers several management options.

Compare Paid Public App Procedures

When you compare the steps necessary to push paid public iOS applications to devices, iOS has simplified the process. It allows Workspace ONE UEM to take management of an application previously installed on a device, and end users do not have to delete applications.

Note: Workspace ONE UEM cannot assume management of user-installed applications on iOS 8 and below.
