Deano's Confused!

Hi All,

Looks like I've finally found an forum that talks about the important stuff in iOS land instead of the new Jet Black iPhone 7 and how it will get tiny scratches on it if you don't put it in a case!

I'm embarking on a journey to tidy up the use of iOS devices in our company and it's bloody confusing! MDM, Apple Configurator, VPP..... I need help!

If someone could point me in the direction of some threads that will help address the following challenges it would be much appreciated.

Company issued iOS devices and Apple Id's - our admin girls have looked after issuing these up until now and I've just ignored it but from what I've found i should be able to use VPP or Apple Configurator 2 to use a company Apple Id to keep control of the device? And I'm fairly certain I don't want to go down the path of DEP.

App deployment - We're about to subscribe to Azure AD Premium which includes M$ InTune, and while it looks great it seems to rely on having the install package for each app rather than linking with the App Store. Is it possible to get the packages? And what if the package you have isn't compatible with all used versions of iOS?

Version Locking - Is it possible to lock devices to a version of iOS to avoid compatibilty issue?

In general, I'm starting from scratch (Except for InTune) and any assistance would be appreciated!

Thank in advance.
