The Device Enrollment Program (DEP) helps businesses easily deploy and configure Apple devices. DEP provides a fast way to deploy organization-owned iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and tvOS devices purchased directly from Apple or Apple Authorized Resellers.
As part of the automated enrollment of devices via DEP, there are several settings that need to be considered.
Please follow the steps below:
I. Once logged into your Mobile Guardian Dashboard, on the left-hand side panel click on “Settings” and then “IOS MDM settings”
II. In the APPLE DEVICE ENROLLMENT PROGRAM (DEP) section (if you have already uploaded your DEP token), the following settings are available:
- Allow pairing - If enabled, allows devices to pair with other devices. (we recommend turning this setting om)
- Supervise - If enabled, the device must be supervised. (we recommend turning this setting on)
Multi-User - If enabled, this will allow the device to be used by multiple users
Mandatory - If enabled, the user may not skip applying the profile. (we recommend turning this setting on)
- Allow removal of MDM - If enabled, allow end-users to remove MDM.
- Skip - Screens to skip during installation(Setup) (default screens to skip shown below)
III. Click Update settings to save all settings.
Congratulations! you have now configured DEP with the recommended settings.
