This blog was updated on May 22,2017, with the latest information about the Device Enrollment Program from Apple. Join the conversation on Twitter using #iOSinBusiness.

What is the Device Enrollment Program from Apple?

The Device Enrollment Program provides a fast, streamlined way to deploy your corporate-owned Mac, iOS or tvOS devices. With a mobile device management (MDM) and unified endpoint management solution like VMware AirWatch, IT can:

  • Customize device settings;
  • Activate and supervise devices over the air; and
  • Enable users to setup their own devices out of the box.

What IT challenges does the Device Enrollment Program help address?

The Device Enrollment Program solves several critical requirements for corporate-owned devices. First, organizations save time and money by eliminating high-touch processes for IT. DEP takes configuration time to zero. Deployment of corporate-owned devices with DEP means zero-touch configuration for IT, eliminates staging and automates device configuration.

Second, onboarding iOS or macOS devices is streamlined for users. Based on the settings IT configured, users are prompted through Setup Assistant (skipping through any unnecessary screens). Users only need to authenticate and don&#rsquo;t need to be tech savvy to get the content, apps and email they need on their smartphones.

Finally, supervising iOS devices over the air is possible with the DEP. With supervision, administrators have more control over the device and can disable features like AirDrop, the App Store and account modification. They can also enable features like password protection. Also, the MDM profile cannot be removed, which eliminates the possibility of un-enrollment to protect data and investments in devices and provides the best user experience possible.

What role does AirWatch play in Apple&#rsquo;s Device Enrollment Program?

To utilize the Device Enrollment Program, MDM capabilities like those part of VMware AirWatch are required. AirWatch integrates with the Device Enrollment Program, enabling organizations to automatically import devices in the console based on order history. Then, administrators can easily configure settings, apply profiles, assign applications and set restrictions that will apply automatically when users unbox devices.

How can I join the Device Enrollment Program from Apple?

First, enroll with Apple and register your organization&#rsquo;s information to create an account and designate your administrators. Next, configure your device settings and Setup Assistant steps in the AirWatch console. You then can ship devices directly to your users.

What are the device requirements for the Apple Device Enrollment Program?

The devices must be corporate-owned and purchased directly from Apple or through participating Apple Authorized Resellers.*

*The Device Enrollment Program may not be supported by all Apple Authorized Resellers and carriers.

What’s available for education with the Device Enrollment Program from Apple?

Both Apple and AirWatch give special consideration to unique education use cases. With Apple School Manager (ASM), Apple has delivered a central place for account creation, role definitions and content purchases. To support ASM, AirWatch designed a console section for education to setup mobile deployments and streamline management of teachers, students, classes, apps and more—whether you have a 1:1 or shared device deployment. After importing data from Apple School Manager, use AirWatch to:

  • Match devices with students or classes;
  • Assign applications (to users or devices); and
  • Configure the new Classroom application, allowing teachers to guide learning on iPads.

Students quickly choose the device with their photo displayed once their teacher has started the class.

This new device comes packed with features that will delight both consumers and the enterprise.

Here are some features we are especially excited about:

  • Iris scanning and face recognition technology available to unlock your phone. This provides a simple and effective way to keep all your data safe.
  • The world&#rsquo;s first 10nm processor. This fast and powerful processor lets you use your phone at your speed and increases battery efficiency.
  • Your new personal assistant, Bixby. Bixby provides another level of intelligence to your phone and understands multiple forms of communication, including voice, touch, vision and text. Why search for something when Bixby can do it for you?
  • Samsung DeX. This new feature provides a desktop-like experiences for Android and Windows apps, all powered by your phone. To make working on your phone even easier, you can plug it into peripherals, like a keyboard, monitor and mouse.

Usability & Security On the New Galaxy S8 with VMware AirWatch

With all this new technology, end users want and expect to be able to use their latest smartphone for work purposes. The VMware Workspace ONE and VMware Horizon integration give your users access to all the apps—web, native, and virtual—they use to be the most productive from one digital workspace. Users can see all their work apps from a unified location and get to work with a seamless experience on their new Galaxy S8.

The Galaxy S8 comes with the defense-grade security of Samsung Knox, which helps keep your important corporate data safe. If your organization wants additional protection of enterprise data, the Knox Workspace can be deployed through AirWatch, providing a hardware-rooted trusted environment. For personal devices or corporate-owned, personally enabled devices, the Knox Workspace creates a separate container for work apps. In this containerized environment, users&#rsquo; work and personal data do not interact. For corporate-owned and managed devices, the Knox Workspace can be locked into container-only mode, with no personal side of the device and multi-layered security.

We&#rsquo;re looking forward to seeing these devices in action when they are available on April 21.
