Intune mobile device management

  • I am trying to find more details on how the whole device enrollment process works, major part that I am not very sure is how to manage a bulk of company owned devices (iPhone) which will be given to the users replacing Blackberry. How does the initial activation happens, and do we still need to use iTunes and if so, on a company owned device what would be the best practices on iTunes account, make a central single iTunes account and use that for all mobile activation or individual accounts for each device?

  • I am not sure specifics of InTune, but the MDM service I use, it sends an email/text message to the device with enrollment link and password then installs a profile to the device.

    If you are wanting to manage purchased apps through the App Store you will need to setup an Apple VPP account to purchase the software through and then you can use your MDM service to assign them to devices.

  • I am not personally an iPhone user for a very long time, but just wondering if we need an iTunes account for any new phone to be first activated and get to the home screen.

  • @ambarishrh No, you do not need an itunes account to get to the home screen when setting up the phone.

  • You have the option to skip that part and "set up later".

  • Thanks and glad to know that i can skip itunes setup. I need to activate around 100 new phones and looking for the most efficient way to set this up and use Microsoft Intunes
