    I'm with a lead tech from Apple UK in a couple of weeks and will back him into a corner to find out more. I get the sense that DEP UK may co-inside with letting ASE resellers sell schools VPP credit vouchers as well, this has been awaiting the sign off from the paralegals in Cupertino for ages.....

    I doubt you'll be able to extract useful information from an Apple employee. They aren't allowed to comment on unannounced products.

    Apple employees, in general, are kept in the dark about planned new products. Even the sales force that will have to sell the product. Just like a military operation, the only people inside Apple who know about a forthcoming new product are those with a "need to know." And that standard is strict. (Source)

    Funny that....

    As having worked with Apple for more than 20 years as an external consultant, fixer and developer they certainly don't say anything to the reseller channel or externals they don't know but programs like DEP are not in the same category as products, an example would be resellers being able to sell VPP credit to customers as I was told about this early this year.

    Any news is good news so we can plan accordingly, DEP would help a lot
