Deploying Pages, Keynote, and Numbers with Volume Purchasing

Apple includes iWork apps for free with the purchase of every new device. When a user sets up a new device, the Apple ID is prompted to redeem these free apps for download.

If your organization is purchasing new devices, you can request that these iWork apps (Pages, Keynote, and Numbers) be added to your Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager account instead of being redeemed with a user's Apple ID.

Once these apps have been added to your account, you will be able to deploy and manage them with Jamf Now.


For iPad or iPhone with iOS 12.3.x or earlier, users must delete built-in versions of these apps on their devices before Jamf Now can manage the apps. After deletion, deploy apps using volume licenses via Jamf Now.
