    iOS 7 App Store licence management- "Coming Soon" - WHEN!!! ???

    According to the Apple UK Education site
    The App Store Volume Purchase Programme now offers institutions the ability to assign apps to users while keeping full ownership and control over app licences. Institutions purchase app licences through the VPP website, and can use their MDM solution to assign apps to students, teachers and staff over the air. Students can enrol with their personal Apple IDs without providing it to their institution, and apps are placed in their purchase history for self-service download, or are installed automatically via MDM. Apps can be revoked at any time and reassigned to other students. In addition to iOS apps, VPP now also supports the purchase of Mac apps and even books, so students can be provided with all the tools they need to get their work done.

    but it says "coming soon" - my question is does anyone have any idea when!!!!????

    This year? Next year? Sometime? Never?

    You still need your MDM to support it though. Apple Configurator does, but Meraki doesn't yet. Not sure about others.
