Hi,

I have iOS 9.3.1 on an iPad which I am supervising via Apple configurator. It is not DEP enrolled.

I am looking into the what the optimal enrollment flow might be when we need to deploy several hundreds. (If they are not DEP enrolled).

When executing the supervision proces via Apple Configurator 2 then it is activating the iOS devices with the apple ID I am currently logged on with in Configurator. Everything progresses as expected and I end up with a device supervised by my organisation.

However, I am forced to log in with my apple ID AFTER the actual activation. Am I doing something wrong or is the some way of skipping this step?

The purpose of supervising is to avoid no entering the organisation Apple ID several times, which works for activation but iOS still requires me to log in with an apple ID to access iCloud, iTunes, App Store etc.

Are you adding apps when you're setting up these iPads? If so, VPP or just from a regular ID?

No, I am not adding any apps. Or configs or anything else for that matter.

Unless Apple Configurator 2 does something by deafult.
