Managing device assignments

If you link Apple Business Manager with Applivery, you can choose the default DEP Profile or Smart enrollment assignments by device type. For example, you will be able to assign your organization’s iPhone devices to one DEP Profile and Smart enrollment and iPad devices or Mac computers to different ones.
