Shared iPad

AUTHOR: The Kandji Team

 ㅤ   Last month, Apple enabled Shared iPad in Apple Business Manager, allowing a true multi-user experience for iPad. Previously only available to Education customers as part of Apple School Manager, Shared iPad for Business will allow employees to easily share and continue their work on multiple devices (such as in a healthcare setting where a device may be shared from one shift to the next). The Shared iPad becomes their own while they are using it. The Shared iPad experience works best when Apple Business Manager is Federated to Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) as Managed Apple IDs are automatically created from Azure AD. To learn more about how this works, read our guide to Managed Apple IDs. Kandji admins can simply enable a new Auto Enroll configuration from the Library and choose the maximum number of users allowed on that iPad. Note: This functionality is only available for devices enrolled through Apple Business Manager (formerly the Device Enrollment Program, or DEP).
