Use Automated Device Enrolment

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

Check your eligibility

Apple Business Manager and Apple School Manager are available to organisations in supported countries or regions that purchase devices from any of the following channels:

  • Directly from Apple
  • Participating Apple Authorised Resellers
  • Mobile network providers

Automated Device Enrolment works on any of these devices:

  • iOS devices with iOS 7 or later
  • iPadOS devices
  • Mac computers with OS X Mavericks 10.9 or later
  • Apple TV devices (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 enrol your devices.

Enrol your organisation

  1. Go to Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager.
  2. Click "Enrol now".
  3. Enter the information for your organisation.

Apple will get in touch with your verification contact — usually a legal representative of your organisation — to verify your enrolment information.

After completing the enrolment process, you'll receive an email informing you that your information has been verified and your enrolment has been approved. 

Add your sales information

After your enrolment is approved, sign in to add your sales information.

  • If you've 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've purchased your devices from an Apple Authorised Reseller or a mobile service provider, ask them for their Reseller ID and provide them with your Organisation ID. 
  • Find out where to find your Organisation ID and enter a Reseller ID in Apple School Manager or Apple Business Manager.

Add your MDM server

After you've enrolled and added your sales information, add your MDM server to Apple Business Manager or add your MDM server to Apple School Manager.

After you've added your MDM server, assign devices to it in Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager.

Add devices manually

You can add devices you didn't purchase to Automated Device Enrolment, such as donated Mac or iPad devices. Find out how to add devices manually using Apple Configurator for Mac or Apple Configurator for iPhone.
