Shared iPad for Business

Fresh out of an Apple WebEx :).

 

I hope this feature is already on the Road Map for development. According to Apple, Jamf and Mosyle have already a first step implementation.

 

Also according to Apple, this feature requires iPadOS 13.4+

Re: Shared iPad for Business

Meraki Systems Manager has had support for that for many years.

Re: Shared iPad for Business

This support you are referencing is only intended for School Manager.

 

Apple Business Manager (or formerly DEP) had no Managed Apple IDs before a year or so ago. So Meraki wasn't able to support this feature.

 

As it states by Apple, for Shared iPads for Business you need iPadOS 13.4+

Can you please explain a business case for a shared business iPad?

A retail store could make use of it. 10 employees share 3 or 4 iPads throughout the week/month. Everyone still has his personalized Mail account or cashier interface etc.

Does anyone know if this is possible without Apple School Manager?  I want to use the shared iPad experience for a healthcare use case.

I have done it for a retail client using Mosyle but I have not tried it in Systems Manager.

@beks88  At this stage it looks as though it not supported as SM only shows sync options for ASM not ABM. I would say Meraki are working on this.

 

 

@lpopejoy  No it requires either ABM or ASM both are free to join. ABM simply requires a DUNS number ot join and ASM you have to prove that you are a school.
