Volume Content

With managed distribution for computers and mobile devices, you can use Jamf Pro to fully control your apps. Jamf Pro can be used to automatically update apps in Jamf Pro and on devices on a schedule, and force app updates at any time.

Jamf Pro allows you to distribute App Store apps and apps purchased in volume directly to computers and mobile devices for managed distribution. Because managed distribution for computers and mobile devices is device-based, user registration with volume purchasing is not required and users do not need to provide an Apple ID. Apps distributed directly to devices do not appear in the user's own App Store purchase history and cannot be updated by users. For more information, see Device-Assigned Managed Distribution.

Jamf Pro also allows you to distribute App Store apps and books to users for managed distribution. Because managed distribution for users is user-based, it involves user registration and user assignments. For more information, see User-Assigned Managed Distribution.
