Automated Device Enrollment options for Apple devices
Apple devices whose serial numbers appear in Apple School Manager or Apple Business Manager can be automatically enrolled in a mobile device management (MDM) solution. For these devices, the following enrollments options can be configured.
Note: To learn which MDM enrollment options are supported for your devices, consult your MDM vendor’s documentation.
Prompt user to enroll device
The device prompts the user to enroll the device in MDM, and you can specify the settings below.
A supervised iOS or iPadOS device can’t be unenrolled by the user. Mac computers can be unenrolled if the user has Super User (root) access.
Require credentials for enrollment
Users need to authenticate to a directory service before they enroll a device in MDM.
Automatically advance through Setup Assistant
A supervised Apple TV is automatically configured without any user intervention, provided no other Setup Assistant panes are enabled.
Supervise device (iOS 12 or earlier)
The device is supervised during enrollment and can’t be unenrolled by the user.
The following options can be configured when supervision is enabled.
Configure as Shared iPad
Students can’t use Shared iPad.
