Assigning 
Apple
 VPP licenses to devices

You can assign 
Apple
 Volume Purchase Program (VPP) licenses to devices that run 
iOS
 9 and later. Assigning VPP licenses to devices instead of to users simplifies the process for users because they no longer require an 
Apple
 ID to install apps. Additionally, apps do not appear in users' purchase history and app installs. When you change the existing assignment type for an app from user assigned to device assigned, the user must re-install the app before the new assignment is applied and displayed in the 
BlackBerry UEM
 management console.
Assigning VPP licenses to devices is supported only on 
iOS
 devices that are activated with 
MDM controls
You can assign VPP licenses to devices when apps are added to any of the following groups and accounts:
  • User accounts 
  • App groups
  • User groups
Assigning VPP licenses to device groups is not supported.
