A new post has just gone live on the Microsoft Intune blog detailing enrolling corporate-owned devices using the Apple Device Enrollment Program:
“Recently, the Intune team announced support for the Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP). DEP enables companies, educational institutions, and government organizations to enroll iOS devices into Mobile Device Management (MDM) directly from the factory or via factory reset. Additionally, this program provides capabilities for supervising devices as well as locking the device into MDM.
When a customer purchases iOS devices directly from the Apple Business channel or through an authorized reseller, the purchase information is copied over to Apple’s Device Enrollment Program. DEP catalogs the ownership of devices much like the Department of Motor Vehicles tracks titles to vehicles. When this channel is harnessed, it ensures that a device will respect the authority and management intent prescribed by the corporate device owner.”
