Manage Activation Lock w/ MDM

Activation Lock is designed to prevent theft of iPhones and iPads. By requiring an owner's Apple ID and password, not just anyone can activate a device. This feature is great for consumers, but can cause problems for IT admins who need to reassign devices to users. Without an MDM solution, Activation Lock is a nightmare to manage and has caused many organizations to simply ban their users from using Apple IDs altogether.

As long as a device is enrolled in an MDM server and is supervised, you can generate an Activation Lock Bypass Code in case you receive a device that is locked to a previous user's Apple ID. Once you have the code, you can enter it into the password field during the Setup Assistant and the device is unlocked.
