    Zero Touch Deployments with DEP

    Before you can use MDM to manage your iOS devices, you first have to enroll them. There are several methods for enrolling a mobile device, but the most seamless is through Apple's Device Enrollment Program (DEP), which entails a three step process:

    • Step 1: Sign up for DEP at https://deploy.apple.com and add your MDM server to the DEP portal.
    • Step 2: Then, purchase devices and link them to your DEP account. Once that's done, you can ship them directly to users.
    • Step 3: When a user turns on their iOS device on for the first time, it will be enrolled, configured, and ready for additional management – all without having to touch it.
