First of all I have had a quick check and nothing new about this has been posted for a while, so just wanted some clarification.
I am about to setup a trolley full of iPads which will be all the same. Do I have to setup each iPad individually with an apple ID or can the same one be used for each iPad using casper?
We are using Device based assignment for our carts that were originally supervised in Apple Configurator 1.7.2, so they are supervised and not in DEP.
Has been working well, on a limited basis, to add apps to devices that have been updated to 9.2.1
I think there might be a typo somewhere that says supervised AND DEP but it should say supervised OR DEP...in any case:
We currently have carts supervised and enrolled in jss using Apple Configurator 1.7.x
We have a profile hiding the App Store and we have sent apps to them using device based distribution.
Works great, iPads have to be iOS 9.x I have pushed free and paid apps out to several of these carts with no issues.
We also have 1 to 1 iPads for middle schoolers. These are in DEP and supervised. I just converted all their apps to device based distribution without interruption and now have the App Store hidden and all apps in Self Service Mobile.
If you want your MDM to be able to push apps with no user interaction, the device must be supervised (DEP, or Configurator).
You can do device-based VPP on non-supervised devices, but the user will be prompted to install the app.
Ah, okay, so supervised or DEP really means supervised via Apple Configurator or supervised via DEP.
Jared, I'm a little confused by your example. If the user will be prompted to install the app, won't they need to enter an Apple ID? That sounds like user-based app assignments.
Yes, in that case it's just user based and needs an Apple ID. I will chime in and say the device based VPP works really, really well. Taking the user out of the equation eliminated a ton of issues.
If the user will be prompted to install the app, won't they need to enter an Apple ID? That sounds like user-based app assignments.
No, not if the app is set to deploy via device-based VPP. If the device is unsupervised (e.g. they were manually enrolled, or they're BYOD) the user will still be prompted to install the app. Only when a device is supervised can you silently install an app (whether it's Apple ID-based VPP or device-based VPP).
I understand there's a lot of minutiae here.
How can you enrol ipads on Jamf without asking for the apple ID? After the message "the company will configure your ipad* the screen for the apple ID comes up ... we use shared ipads so cannot have apple ID....
