What is Apple Business Manager?
Apple Business 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 Business Manager integrates using federated authentication with Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD) so you can quickly create employee accounts with Managed Apple IDs.
If you’re already enrolled in the Device Enrollment Program (DEP), you may be able to upgrade your existing programs to Apple Business Manager, bringing together everything needed to deploy supported Apple devices. If your organization is also enrolled in the Volume Purchase Program (VPP) this program will be upgraded alongside DEP. See Upgrade to Apple Business Manager.
