im an IT administrator in a school and need manage about 50 iPads. The main problem is that the iPads are for shared use and thereby not one user pr. iPad.
I know there is an limit for apple id that you can't register more then 10 devices pr. id.
Is there any way to register an apple id for the school that can handle all of thees shared iPads?
altso I'm would like to use VPP, but I'm from denmark and i can't those denmark when I'm registering for VPP, any suggestions?
I have 49 iPads on the same ID... We have one Apple ID as I choose the right deployment option for us. (You can go for other options and have an AppleID per student)
I tend to use one Apple ID per 'set' of iPads, so all the ones in a single trolley are on the same ID. Currently using Meraki MDM to configure them, wich is free, but has its limits.
Apple won't stop you from putting more than 10 devices on an Apple ID, but things will almost certainly get wacky when you try to deploy paid apps or iBooks. We discovered this the hard way. You can try this tool Batch Apple ID Creator | Enterprise iOS which used to work, but it seems there is now some behavior in the iTunes store that causes it not to work and I think the developer is about to wash his hands of the project.
You will also need to talk to your Apple edu rep and get them to whitelist your IP before creating big batches of Apple ID's. Otherwise they will think you're phishing and block ID creation from your IP. This is true even if you do it by hand, which you probably will.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. We're doing a shared iPad deployment too and Apple makes this painful. We have Casper too, but that doesn't help this situation.
I've got 200 iPads using the same apple ID. I use a product called meraki to deploy down free apps. My school district doesn't do paid apps at the moment. Paid apps are a management nightmare. Meraki makes it easy to manage the asset and what free apps it gets.
But i know we can by and install apps by hand on the devices or use som kind of gift card, but that would require one device-one apple id right?
ATM VPP is not avalible in Denmark damm!
like to hear if some one has another solution ?
