What goes on behind the scenes when using a mobile device management solution? It all begins with the Apple Push Notification service (APNs) Certificate that establishes a trusted connection between your Apple devices and Mosyle’s server. That's why it is the first step when setting up your Mosyle Business account.
Only through the Push Certificate (APNs) will the iPhone, iPad and Mac devices receive the MDM commands that you will send using Mosyle Business. After you create your APNs Certificate, you can start to enroll and manage your devices.
When you save a management profile using Mosyle Business, Mosyle’s server queues up the commands and sends a notification to each Apple device via the Apple Push Notification Service (APNs). Once the device receives the notification, it checks in and connects with the Mosyle server to download and apply the command.
