The Apple Education Support settings allow you to enable support for Shared iPad and Apple's Classroom app. When you enable Apple Education Support, you allow iPads to be enrolled with the JSS as Shared iPad using a mobile device PreStage enrollment. In addition, Classes in the JSS can be configured for use with Apple’s Classroom app.
