Apple MDM Push Certificate Migration Information

Dec 21, 2015

MDM push certificates created in the iOS Developer Enterprise Program have been migrated to the Apple Push Certificates Portal. This migration affects the creation of new MDM push certificates and the renewal, revocation, and downloading of existing MDM push certificates. The migration does not affect other (non-MDM) APNS certificates.

If your MDM push certificate was created in the iOS Developer Enterprise Program, the following situations apply:
  • The certificate has been migrated for you automatically.
  • You can renew the certificate in the Apple Push Certificates Portal without affecting your users.
  • You need to use the iOS Developer Enterprise Program to revoke or download a preexisting certificate.

If none of your MDM push certificates is near expiration, you don't need to do anything. If you do have an MDM push certificate that is approaching expiration, contact your MDM solution provider. Then, have your iOS Developer Program Agent log on to the Apple Push Certificates Portal with their Apple ID.

All new MDM push certificates must be created in the Apple Push Certificates Portal. The iOS Developer Enterprise Program will no longer allow the creation of an App ID with a Bundle Identifier (APNS topic) that contains com.apple.mgmt.
Note: You must keep track of the Apple ID used to create the certificate. In addition, the Apple ID should be a corporate ID and not a personal ID.
