iPadOS and iOS 13.1 introduces a new lightweight form of management called User Enrollment. It’s designed for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) as a way to give IT the ability to manage a limited set of configurations and policies associated with a user instead of managing the entire device and also secures corporate data.
With User Enrollment, the IT department can install apps, configure accounts, and require a passcode per-app VPN, and enforce certain restrictions. Unenrolling the device will remove all organizational data and apps.
When selecting this option, the end-user needs to access the Enrollment URL on Safari and use their Managed Apple ID to login to the device. The user then has access to both personal and corporate data without the possibility that their personal data will be viewed or modified by the IT administrator.
You can manage your BYOD program using Apple's User Enrollment and Mosyle. To learn more about what is User Enrollment, access our portal about this revolutionary enrollment method. You can also learn the step-by-step to get started using Mosyle and User Enrollment here.
