Assigning
Apple
VPP licenses to devices

You can assign
Apple
Volume Purchase Program (VPP) licenses to
iOS
devices. 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 you assign apps to any of the following:
  • User accounts
  • App groups
  • User groups
  • Device groups
