Deploy Apps to Users or Devices with VPP

The rich library of apps in the iOS App Store can help your employees achieve even more, whether it's turning an iPad into a cash register or transforming business processes such as managing a sales cycle or signing contracts. With an app strategy and MDM to manage your app deployments, you will ensure users have the apps they need to be productive.

  • Step 1: Sign up for VPP at https://deploy.apple.com and link your VPP account to your MDM server.
  • Step 2: Find and purchase app licenses from the VPP web store, including free apps.
  • Step 3: App licenses are automatically added to your MDM server.
  • Step 4: Choose to assign apps to either devices directly or to a user's Apple ID.
    Note: If you assign to user's Apple ID, then first invite users to participate in your VPP deployment via email or push notification. Once they accept, the process will be completed.
  • Step 5: Apps are deployed to either the device or the user's Apple ID, and no interaction is required.
