Instant Support for iOS 9

Take advantage of the newest features available from Apple with our instant support for new OS releases. iOS 9 introduces new productivity, management and security enhancements for businesses and schools.

For end users, multitasking capabilities, improved intelligence and updates to built-in apps allow for a more productive and intuitive user experience.

For IT, Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) and Apple Configurator updates make it easier to stage devices to be deployed in bulk. Administrators are able to keep devices up-to-date with forced OS updates, enhanced network policies to prevent roaming, and the ability to manage applications after they are installed.

Security enhancements include new device restrictions, implicit trust for apps installed through AirWatch and the ability to prevent users from installing any untrusted enterprise-signed apps. To learn more, watch the webinar.

Apple Device Management

Choose the devices that meet your requirements, and unlock the business potential with AirWatch. We provide complete support for iOS devices, including: iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, MacBook, and Apple TV. Apple has built mobile device management (MDM) frameworks directly in their operating systems, enabling AirWatch to seamlessly configure and manage business devices.

Apple Device Enrollment Program

Get devices in the hands of your users fast with AirWatch. Our integration with Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP) helps streamline setup for users, automates management for IT and ensures devices are configured the way you want—as soon as they’re taken out of the box. Simply setup your admin account with Apple, and then configure device settings in the admin console. Then, users can quickly enroll in AirWatch with zero touch from IT.

App Management

Allow your employees to work from anywhere with productivity and collaboration apps built for the enterprise. With AirWatch, you can deliver the right apps to the right people from our admin console. Our direct integration with the Apple App Store enables you to find and distribute the public apps your end users will love with a custom app catalog. With integrated business-ready apps, development tools for iOS, simplified purchasing, and our own productivity app suite, AirWatch provides support for the full app management lifecycle.


Apple Volume Purchase Program

Procure apps in bulk to scale distribution for your organization, departments and locations. Apple’s Volume Purchase Program (VPP) makes it easy to source apps and iBooks in bulk for your users to meet business needs, whether from the App Store or as a custom B2B application. AirWatch integration with VPP allows you to purchase, manage, allocate and revoke licenses.

The Platform to Bring it all Together

With AirWatch, device management, app distribution and more come together for easy administration for IT and a seamless experience for end users.
