AppState academic and business units have the ability to obtain licenses for apps from Apple's App Store (for Mac, iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch) for deployment on University-owned and managed devices. Follow these steps to obtain licenses of a free or paid app from the App Store, which can then be distributed to your devices over the network.
Apps can only be distributed to University-owned devices that are managed in Jamf Pro. We cannot distribute these to personal or non-managed devices at this time.
If all you need is a free App to deploy to managed devices, go to the following guide for how to Request Deployment of Apps from the App Store.
Go to school.apple.com and log in with your newly created Apple School account and temporary password.
When prompted, add a phone number that can receive texts for 2-factor authentication.
Enter the verification code sent to your phone.
Update your password (use your temporary password as your current password).
Click continue when prompted.
From the left sidebar, under Content click on Apps and Books. Then click Get Started.
Read and agree to the Terms and Conditions.
Next, we need to add a purchasing method. From the bottom of the left sidebar, click on Settings.
Click on Apps and Books under Personal Settings then click Add under My Billing Information. Next, click the dropdown to select Credit/Debit Card and add billing information for your P-Card and save.
Apple is really particular about this information and will decline cards without the exact billing info. You may have to contact the purchasing office to enter it in exactly as specified by purchasing.
Enter the quantity of licenses you need to obtain of the App, then click the Buy or Get button depending on if the App is free or paid and Apple will process the codes.
Most paid Apps are provided at a 50% discount when purchasing 20 or more licenses.
