Apple Deployment Programs

This service works in conjunction with Apple Deployment services such as:

Device Enrollment Program (DEP)
iPhones and iPads can be assigned to the Campus MDM system so that they are enrolled and managed as soon as they are unboxed and powered on for the first time and continue to be managed even if they are wiped. At this time, devices must be purchased from these sources for DEP compatibility:

  • iPads: Apple punch-out in CruzBuy
  • iPads/iPhones:: AT&T
  • iPads/iPhones:: From Verizon Wireless
  • iPads/iPhones: From CDW-G punchout in CruzBuy

Devices that cannot be enrolled via DEP can still be enrolled through a manual enrollment process. Currently, devices purchased though the BayTree Campus Store will need manual enrollment. 

Volume Purchase Program (VPP)
Mobile apps can be purchased and assigned to devices without the need for AppleIDs.  App ownership is retained by the University, not individuals.
