Automated Device Enrolment (ADE)

ADE is a feature provided by Apple for their devices, such as iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers. It is designed to streamline the device enrollment process for organizations by automating the setup and configuration of these devices when they are first turned on. ADE allows organizations to seamlessly deploy and manage large numbers of Apple devices without requiring manual intervention from end-users.

Key benefits of ADE:

a. Simplified Setup: With ADE, the devices can be pre-configured with all necessary settings, applications, and restrictions before they reach the end-users. This ensures that devices are ready to use right out of the box.

b. Over-the-Air Enrollment: Devices can be enrolled in the MDM solution wirelessly over-the-air, reducing the need for physical device handling and manual configurations.

c. Enhanced Security: ADE ensures a more secure enrollment process by validating the devices with Apple’s servers, ensuring they are genuine and not compromised.

d. Configurable Profiles: IT administrators can create specific configuration profiles that apply security policies and settings uniformly across all enrolled devices.

e. Lost Mode: In case of a lost or stolen device, administrators can remotely lock and track the device using the Find My app.
