    Actually given recent weather patterns, with vast quantities of rain kicked up by abnormally cold weather over North America, maybe your autocorrect was right @FN-GM... it just got the context wrong

    Discover the Device Enrollment Program from Apple

    Unless this is for US eyes only I see Airwatch on the BS wagon again just like they did with their "so called" immediate support for iOS7 they jumped on iOS7 and managed distribution the day after it was announced then had to rewrite their MDM interface because there was nowhere to upload your VPP token!!

    Don't believe the hype.....

    I've just had it confirmed that none of these features are available outside of the Device Enrolment Program and that there is no support for OTA Supervision.

    I think this STINKS and even if the DEP was available in the UK, having to have bought your iPads directly from Apple to be able to do this STINKS even worse!

    This might explain Apple's decision somewhat...

    Understanding Apple's New Deployment Programs « Fraser Speirs

    There are two major caveats with DEP. The first is that it is only for institutionally-owned devices directly purchased from Apple. There is no procedure for registering devices purchased, for example, over the counter at an Apple Store. My understanding is that this is a philosophical decision on Apple's part: admins should not be able to "capture" devices that they don't own. This is the same philosophy that says that personally-owned can't be locked into MDM. My own opinion is that this is not an unreasonable fear on Apple's part. Sysadmin over-reach is a real issue.

    The second caveat is that DEP is US-only for now. Apple operates a direct sales model in the US and therefore has knowledge of who ordered which devices, down to the level of individual serial numbers. That's not true in most other countries where Apple works through resellers to sell to institutions.

    I can see the point, but surely a well managed reseller programme would be able to supply s/n and customer numbers back to apple.
    Or, do something similar to Dell with asset tags and being able to register devices as owned by an institution.

    Still very frustrating.

    I reckon @FN-GM has discovered a great new word. As a dyslexic I love it!

    Well 6 months on and still no sign of this coming to the UK yet. :-(

    I got all excited when in the latest version of profile manager, there's an option to only let users enrol device during the device setup! Great, finally a way to stop them removing the MDM profile. However, when looking into it I realise that feature only works in conjunction with the apple deployment program, and yes it's not available in the UK yet. (I actually found this thread while googling.)

    Never mind, maybe sometime soon they will let us have access to it!
