You can push both external Apple iOS apps or apps that you developed internally within your organization to devices from Device Manager. You can select apps you want to push from the Files
tab and then deploy the apps in a package.
Device Manager provides two security policy settings that you can apply to applications before you push them:
- Prevent App Backup. To ensure that certain external apps are only installed on devices that you manage, you can choose to remove a pushed app on an iOS device if the user removes their Device Manager profile.
- Remove App When MDM Profile is Removed. Before you push an iOS 5 app to an iOS device, you can select the Prevent Backup of App Data setting, which will prevent the user from backing up a specified app either on the user's computer (via iTunes) or through iCloud.
Note: Before you can push an iOS app to a device, the app file must already have been imported into Device Manager.
