Use Device Enrollment

Device Enrollment lets you automate Mobile Device Management (MDM) enrollment and simplify initial device setup. You can supervise devices during activation without touching them, and lock MDM enrollment for ongoing management.

Check your eligibility

The Device Enrollment Program (DEP) and Apple School Manager (ASM) are available to organizations in supported countries or regions that purchase devices directly from any of the following channels:

  • Directly from Apple
  • Participating Apple Authorized Resellers
  • Wireless carriers

Device Enrollment works on any of these devices:

  • iOS devices with iOS 7 or later
  • Mac computers with OS X Mavericks 10.9 or later
  • Apple TVs (4th generation or later) with tvOS 10.2 or later

To add devices that you didn't purchase, like a donated iPad, learn how to manually enroll your devices.

Find your Apple Customer Number or Reseller ID

When you enroll, you’ll need your Apple Customer Number or Reseller ID. If you don’t know it, here’s how to find it:

  • If you purchased your devices from Apple, contact your purchasing agent, finance department, or a member of the Apple Sales team and ask for your Apple Customer Number.
  • If you purchased your devices from an Apple Authorized Reseller or a cellular carrier, ask them for their DEP Reseller ID and provide them your Customer ID. Learn where to find your Customer ID.
