New site for Apple MDM, VPP, DEP and profile developer references

I’ve come across a new section within Apple developer documentation that I’ve not see before.

This looks to be a home for the device management documentation that includes

  • Configuration Profiles
  • MDM Protocol
  • Deployment Services

Apple tag new functionality with a BETA label in the docs and specify the minimum OS version


They have talked about it briefly in the WWDC Device Management presentation at

It’s pretty cool, but some properties lack a clear description whether they are macOS only or iOS and macOS. For example, I think the KeyIsExtractable and AllowAllAppsAccess keys in the Certificates payload were described as macOS only in the old PDF documentation. There’s no such distinction in the new docs.
