What is Supervision?
- Open Enrollment is the lower form of management, primarily used in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) situations where Jamf Now admins want to enable employees to bring their own tech from home.
- Supervision is the higher form of management and gives you deep and total control over the device.
Why is Supervision useful?
How do I Supervise a device?
*Please note: Devices will be wiped when bringing them under Supervision.
- For new hardware, Apple's Device Enrollment Program (DEP) allows you to Supervise devices from the factory. This is massively beneficial to companies that are growing their Apple deployment or want to refresh hardware in the future.
- For existing hardware that you already deploy, use Apple Configurator version 2.5 or above to manually import devices into the DEP portal and begin Supervised management.
