One of the most anticipated features of iOS is the ability to distribute VPP apps to devices without Apple IDs, as long as certain conditions are met: device is on iOS 9, app was purchased through VPP, app developer opted in, MDM supports this feature.
What is unclear at this time is WHICH MDM providers support this feature today. As far as I can tell, very few were ready on day 1. Was yours?
Does your MDM support per-Device app distribution? Please post your MDM vendor and your experiences here. Maybe we can get them to prioritize this feature.
I upgraded to Server 5.0.3 yesterday. I previously was unable to sync new VPP purchased apps(Last couple weeks) and apple support said I had to updated before VPP would work again. So I upgraded. I am able to login and the apps are there. But randomly I get grey screen or "A server error has occurred." while working. Usually I get one of those errors instead of the page or button I click. I have monitored the log files after hitting load until I get the error: The server starts running version slow at this time. It is a i7 with 16gb of ram. Any suggestions? Any help appreciated.
(log follows below)
Apple has published their regular inventory of security updates in iOS 9. By my count it is a new record of patches: 107 vulnerabilities.
Apple's been getting better and better at documenting and fixing security vulnerabilities. So please do your part and update your devices!
Source: Apple Security Updates
"You can define a custom Access Point Name (APN) for cellular data access using either of two different configuration profile payloads – APN or Cellular. In iOS 9 you currently must use a Cellular payload for your APN profile. Apple plans to address this issue in a software update."
If you are affected by iOS 9 APN issue please refer to Apple's KB.
iOS 9 contains many new restrictions, especially for devices supervised by GroundControl, Configurator, and DEP.
Over at GroundControl's web site, I've posted a list of the new restrictions, plus sample configuration profiles for each. Want to lock the device name or wallpaper? Prevent the device passcode from being set or being changed? These are for you.
A few of the MDM providers will be ready on day 1, but if your on-prem solution may take some time to update, then you may use these files to bridge the gap.
I have made an App I built with Enterprise profil.
When I deploy this app, I have the error : "The application could not be verified."
AMDeviceSecureInstallApplication (thread 0x10b23b000): Could not install package on device: kAMDApplicationVerificationFailedError
How could I verify the app?
Thanks in advance!

iOS 9 available September 16, new iPhones, bigger iPad Pro, new iPad mini 4, new Apple TV with apps...
Lots and lots today at the Apple announcements. This big one for this crowd is this:
iOS 9 available September 16
It's coming, and hopefully you've been up to speed on Apple's iOS 9 Checklist. (OK Seriously who has time for this?). Apple today not only released the Gold Master of iOS 9, they released the first beta of iOS 9.1. Time stops for no one.
The new Apple TV, available "Late October" comes with "tvOS" and runs Apps. Enterprise Apps are usable too, according to the updated license agreement. Does this mean MDM support for apps to Apple TVs?
Two new iPhones — 6s and 6s Plus — come 3D Touch (new gestures), Touch ID 2 (faster), better camera (12M pixels & 4K video), LTE Advanced and quicker WiFi. And pink.
A new 12.9" iPad Pro, with optional accessories Apple Pencil, and Smart Keyboard for those of you with Surface envy. No, that can't be the case, because Apple put Microsoft on stage to demo Office for iPad just after its introduction. (Which looks very cool using Excel and Word side-by-side.)
In case five iPad models makes your eyes cross, Apple has published an iPad comparison that may help. From what I can tell, there are 23 different combinations of capacity, size, and networking. And I'm skipping color options.
What did I miss?
I manage our districts iPads using the Meraki MDM and now I want to be able to push Mac Apps to new teacher Macbooks. My issue is I cannot seem to get the App assigned to the Macbooks.
Here's what I've done.
1. Added devices to our Apple Device Enrollment account and assigned them to our MDM server.
2. I purchased the Mac App in VPP.
3. Synced the app in the Meraki MDM
4. Granted license to users
5. Added app to Meraki App management with custom tag identifying the app
6. Added the custom tag as the scope for installation.
Here is where it gets fun, once the tag is added, the clients in scope remain 0.
Confirmed on the Mac that app is assigned to the Apple Id, as it allows me to install it manually, but I want to be able to deploy it like we do for iPad apps.
This is the 1st time I have tried to deploy an OSX app, Up to this point we were only doing iPad apps. I have scoured the Meraki site and Google for more info, and no luck. So I am hoping someone has done this or can confirm that what I want to do is not possible.
Here is the app I am trying to push to the Macbooks.AntiVirus Sentinel Pro
I noticed that in Meraki, the Platform is Identified as IOS but when going to the Itunes App page it is an OSX app, When I can the scope and select an iPad it accepts the tag and updated the scope correctly. Did I import the app into Meraki incorrectly? On the Macbook it shows up as a Mac app.
Any help would be appreciated, I can do a manual install on the 30+ Macs if I need to, but hoping it's a simple mistake or missed step on my part.
A while back, we "purchased" Notability when it went free in the App Store. We "bought" many licenses and have never had a problem until now.
Previously, students could install the app with no issues from the AirWatch App Catalog. Now, many of the kids are receiving a message that they will be redirected to the App Store to pay the $2.99 for the app.
Obviously, something has changed. Is anyone aware of what the change was? Most, if not all, of the devices are running iOS 8.4.
Has anybody successfully used the new Apple ID U13 Kisok program where parent confirmation e-mails are no longer used to create U13 Apple IDs for Students?
We signed up to use that but even after working with Apple Enterprise support have not been able to upload the initial U13 file to start the processing. We are under the gun to get this process started so if you are successfully using this new U13 kiosk mode to create your Apple IDs please touch base with me. At this point since we can not get this to work we will use the older U13 program like last year with the parent confirmation e-mails, which is not ideal for our District.
I have a roll out of around 300 devices that have all been supervised before. However many of them have starting to get issues with the time, they're about 8 hours ahead. All devices have time and time zone set to auto, they're all on iOS 8.3 or 8.4. There is a mixture of iPhone 6's and iPad Air 2's.
Plugging into configurator doesn't set the time automatically. The time settings on there are all set to auto as well and location services are enabled. The time on the Mac is shown correctly.
When the timezone on the devices are changed to manual, which flicks it over to Los Angeles by default, the time is then correct (I'm in England). When it is set back to auto (which shows London) it then jumps forward another 8 hours.
I'm really hoping that I have missed something obvious here, because I'm at an absolute loss as to what to do. I've tried everything from moving the time around on the mac, disabling enabling location services, reformatting the devices.
