The first step to integrating your Apple TVs with Workspace ONE UEM is to enroll the device. You must enroll your device into your Workspace ONE UEM environment before it can be monitored and managed.
Unlike other devices and platforms, tvOS enrollment does not require the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub or access to a web browser on the device itself. However, the tvOS devices should be connected to a secure network to enroll successfully.
If you choose to enroll using Apple DEP, you must have an Apple DEP account.
Connect a tvOS Device to a Network
Begin the enrollment process for your tvOS devices by connecting devices to your network so they can receive enrollment commands. Create a Wi-fi profile to push to your devices if necessary.
For more information, see Connect a tvOS Device to a Network.
Enroll a tvOS Device
To complete the enrollment of a tvOS device, you must configure the specific device you are enrolling using Apple Configurator 2. You need an Apple computer to complete this procedure.
For more information, see Enroll a tvOS Device.
Enroll a tvOS Device Using Apple DEP
Apple TV 4th generation devices running tvOS 10.2 and higher can be enrolled using the Apple Device Enrollment Program. The DEP enrollment simplifies the setup and deployment of enrollment and use profiles.
For more information, see DEP Enrollment for tvOS Devices.
DEP Enrollment for tvOS Devices
With 4th generation Apple TV devices running tvOS 10.2, you can enroll Apple TVs through the Apple Device Enrollment Portal.
Using a registered device, follow the standard Setup Assistant process, including language, country or region, and Wi-Fi network. From this point, the Setup Assistant flow varies as determined by settings in the DEP profile that you assigned to the device.
Currently, tvOS devices do not support the following set-up options:
- Skip the configuration for the device screensaver
- Skip the configuration for Tap to Set Up
For more information on DEP Enrollment for tvOS devices, see the VMware Workspace ONE UEM Guide for the Apple Device Enrollment Program.
Configure an Auto-Advance Setup Profile (tvOS)
Take advantage of zero-touch deployment functionality for tvOS devices enrolled using DEP. This feature simplifies the setup process for tvOS devices by creating a streamlined enrollment workflow.
tvOS devices enrolled through Apple DEP can be set to enroll using Auto Advance Setup. Auto Advance Setup lets users turn on an Apple TV device that is configured for DEP enrollment and immediately have access to the device to broadcast to connected televisions. The tvOS device queries the DEP Profile and enrolls instantaneously.
For more information about setting up Auto Advance Setup for DEP-enrolled tvOS devices, see Complete the DEP Enrollment Profile in the VMware Workspace ONE UEM Guide for the Apple Device Enrollment Program.
