Apple Deployment Essentials



Apple Deployment Essentials is a two-day course written by Apple. In this course students will gain the skills, tools, and knowledge they need to deploy Mac computers and iOS devices. Interactive discussions and hands-on exercises guide students through configuring and managing these Apple devices. Students will work through real-world scenarios to test and reinforce what they learn.


Apple Deployment Course Outline

  • Explore the challenges and inconsistencies of manually configuring multiple devices in an organisation.

Manage Devices

  • Learn how to use MDM to configure and manage devices consistently and efficiently.

Streamline Enrolment

  • In this introduction to Apple Business Manager, you’ll configure settings to enable over-the-air enrolment and supervision and learn how users can personalise organisation-owned devices.

Apply Policies

  • Learn about the security technologies that protect the system, apps, and data on Apple devices. Configure restrictions, enforce FileVault on macOS, and manage the flow of data on iOS.
