Apple ID account management
Using a VPP account
IMPORTANT: Users can still purchase apps on their iOS and macOS devices with their Apple IDs.
You cannot purchase Apple VPP licenses using Modern Device Management. Licenses must be purchased in iTunes using VPP-registered Apple IDs, and then you can redistribute them through Modern Device Management using software distribution packages.
To manage software licenses using Apple VPP software:
Sign up for the Apple Volume Purchasing Program. To use this feature, you must have a corporate Apple ID with a VPP subscription. After completing your subscription, use the Apple Business Manager software or the Apple School Manager website to purchase software license bundles.
How To Manage And Reset Your Apple ID
Configure VPP in Modern Device Management. Add the VPP token created in Apple Deployment Tool to Modern Device Management.
Deploy licenses to subscription devices. Use the software package to deploy applications managed with Apple VPP. For more information, see Distributing Data to MDM-Managed Devices.
To install VPP apps on an iOS or macOS device:
After VPP settings are deployed from the console, all affected devices may be prompted to install the deployed applications. Users must accept this invitation and sign in to devices with their Apple ID device accounts to obtain VPP licenses. This will not be charged to Apple ID device accounts.
After each deployment of a licensed app, users will be prompted to sign in to the device with their Apple ID. This login is required to identify all volume licenses installed on the device and add them to the list of purchased applications. This does not give Modern Device Management access to the Apple ID associated with the iOS device, so users can use their accounts if needed.
Revoking licenses from a device
Each license for an application distributed through VPP can only be transferred to one user. When a license is assigned, it becomes unavailable for another assignment until you revoke it from the device. However, users can still purchase their own licenses and download applications.
Unsubscribing or performing a device-level factory restore will not automatically return the license. The license must be manually returned. However, if the administrator removes the device from inventory or erasing its information using the console, the software license becomes available for the new assignment.
To manage application licenses from Modern Device Management:
On the console, click Tools Distribution Distribution packages.
Click the Enterprise applications button on the toolbar.
Click Add VPP Entry.
Provide a token alias and select its file you got from Apple website.
All app license purchases associated with your Apple ID account appear in the Associated App Bar.
NOTE: Multiple markers can be added at the same time. However, tokens should not be shared across multiple master servers.
On the console, you can double-click the application name to display a dialog listing the currently used licenses. Each license identifies the assigned device by its group subscription name or by its LDAP account name.
Apple VPP Configuration in Modern Device Management
In Modern Device Management software, enable Apple VPP integration to view and manage all of your purchased and distributed licenses. Modern Device Management allows you to identify the total number of licenses currently in use, which devices or users are using licenses, and the number of remaining licenses available.
When a license is installed on a user’s device using a software package and is associated with the device’s Apple ID account, it will appear in the list of user-purchased licenses. The user can then download and install the app on other iOS devices associated with their Apple ID, even if those devices are not managed by Modern Device Management.
To return application licenses:
On the console, click Tools Distribution Tools Modern Device Management Enterprise applications.
Double-click the application for which you want to return the license. A list of users with licenses will be displayed.
Select the user from whom you want to withdraw the license and then click Reclaim selected.
The license will be returned and displayed in the column of the list of available licenses.
Revoking a software license from a device will cause it to do one of the following:
On an iOS device, the app will be uninstalled during the next agent sync.
On macOS devices, you can continue to use the software for a 30-day evaluation period, after which the application will stop working. This evaluation period does not change the ability of administrators to immediately reassign a revoked license to another device. Revoked licenses are immediately available for use.
