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

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

  • Directly from Apple
  • Participating Apple Authorized Resellers
  • Cellular 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 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 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 Reseller ID and provide them your Organization ID. Learn where to find your Organization ID.

Enroll your organization or institution

  1. Sign in to Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager.
  2. Click "Enroll now".
  3. Enter the information for your organization or institution.

After you enroll, you will receive an email after your information is verified and your enrollment is approved. 

Add your sales information

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

  1. Sign in to Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager.
  2. Click Settings, then click Device Management Settings.
  3. Click Edit next to Customer Numbers, enter the information, then click Apply.

Add your MDM server

After you enroll and add your sales information, add your MDM server to Apple Business Manager or add your MDM server to Apple School Manager.

After you add your MDM server, get started with MDM.

Add devices manually

To add iOS devices that you didn’t purchase to Device Enrollment, like a donated iPad, learn how to manually add iOS devices in Apple Configurator 2. After you manually add a device, assign the device to an MDM server in Apple Business Manager or assign the device to an MDM server in Apple School Manager.
