Understanding Managed Books

Jamf Pro allows you to manage books that are distributed to iOS devices. When a book is managed by Jamf Pro, you have more control over distribution and removal of the book. The following table provides more detail:

Managed Book Requirements

The following requirements determine whether a book can be managed by Jamf Pro:

  • The device has iOS 8 or later

  • The book is an in-house book, or a book available in the iBooks Store that is free or paid for by the organization using Apple's Volume Purchase Program (VPP) and assigned to the user via VPP-managed distribution (For information, see User-Based VPP Assignments.)

If you try to make a book managed and these requirements are not met, the book behaves as unmanaged.
