What is device management on iPadOS and iOS MDM?

iPadOS and iOS devices play crucial roles in offices worldwide. This includes iPad tablets running iPadOS, as well as iPhones and iPod Touch devices running iOS. These devices might serve as kiosks, point-of-sale devices, information terminals, or almost any other kind of device. With so many iOS and iPadOS device types, it can be hard to do effective iPhone and iPad device management. This is where an iPad MDM, or iOS MDM, solution is essential. Whether businesses use work-owned iPads and iPhones, or allow employees to use their own as part of a BYOD program, a iOS MDM can be a huge help. Once implemented, an MDM solution helps admins do iPadOS and iOS remote management, keeping iOS and iPadOS devices secure and compliant.

iPadOS and iOS MDM for Device Lifecycle Management

graph-01

To begin iOS management and iPad management, you’ll first need to enroll them into an appropriate MDM solution. Next, you will provision iPhones and iPads by installing and configuring applications, applying security policies, and pushing content onto the iOS and iPadOS devices. After provisioning, you then deploy or deliver the devices to the end users. Once employees start using devices, admins can call on the iPadOS and iOS MDM tool to manage and track devices. If workers do not comply with best practices, you can use the iOS and iPadOS management solution to keep business data safe. Finally, once the devices become outdated or reach end-of-life (EOL), they are retired or decommissioned from the iPad and iOS MDM solution.
