What is Apple School Manager?
Apple School Manager is a simple, web-based portal for IT administrators to deploy iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, and Mac computers all from one place. When used with your mobile device management (MDM) solution, you can configure device settings and buy and distribute apps and books. And Apple School Manager integrates with Student Information Systems (SISs), SFTP, and federated authentication with Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD) so you can quickly create accounts with school rosters and classes.
If you’re already enrolled in the Device Enrollment Program (DEP) or the Volume Purchase Program (VPP), you may be able to upgrade your existing programs to Apple School Manager, bringing together everything needed to deploy supported Apple devices. See Upgrade to Apple School Manager.
Apple has received ISO 27001 and ISO 27018 certifications for the Information Security Management System for the infrastructure, development, and operations supporting certain products and services.
