Description

Managing Apple Devices, Third Edition will enable students to create an effective plan for deploying and maintaining groups of Apple devices using iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan. This all-in-one resource teaches a wide variety of Apple management technologies; explains the theory behind the tools; and provides practical, hand-on exercises to get students up and running with the tools. They’ll be introduced to Apple management technologies including Mobile Device Management, the Volume Purchase Program, and the Device Enrollment Program. For example, not only will they learn how to use Profile Manager—Apple’s implementation of Mobile Device Management—but they will also learn about the ideas behind profile management and how to make configuration easier for both administrators and users while maintaining a highly secure environment.

You will learn the theory behind these tools and work through practical exercises that teach you to use the tools. For example, not only will you learn how to use Profile Manager–Apple’s implementation of Mobile Device Management–but you will also learn about the ideas behind profile management and how to make configuration easier for both administrators and users while maintaining a highly secure environment.
