Kind of a big deal

Re: Apple DEP upgrading to Apple Business Pros and Cons?

I've gone through this, its all very easy. Basically nothing much changes apart from its a centralised dashboard that allows you to manage DEP and VPP as well as managed Apple ID's in one place.

Re: Apple DEP upgrading to Apple Business Pros and Cons?

The migration was fairly smooth. I freaked out at first because it appeared a good chunk of my devices were missing post-upgrade, but I just had to click the force sync button, and everything populated as expected. Haven't had any syncing issues since then.

Re: Apple DEP upgrading to Apple Business Pros and Cons?

We have been using the new system for an number of months now. I had posted when we first went over:

Only thing to note is the VPP.

 

Meraki have also updated the documentation for this: https://documentation.meraki.com/SM/Apps_and_Software/Apple_Volume_Purchase_Program_(VPP)

 

The only thing to remember is that the APNS Certificates are still part of a different system!

Now time to get all our customers across...
