Action required for Apple Business Manager users.
On July 27, 2023, Apple posted an updated version of the Volume Content Terms to Apple Business Manager (ABM). Your organization cannot enroll devices or deploy new apps until an Administrator signs into Apple Business Manager and accepts the agreement.
With this update, an Administrator will be able to accept the Volume Content Terms on behalf of the entire organization. Content Managers and Administrators will no longer be prompted to accept the Volume Content Terms in their individual capacities after an Administrator accepts the terms on behalf of the organization.
Additionally, the Volume Content Terms includes clarifying language with respect to redeeming unused Volume Content balances. You can preview the updated Volume Content Terms now.
Repercussions of not logging in and approving the change:
- Devices will no longer automatically enroll in Apple Business Manager.
- Without automatic enrollment in ABM, your Mobile Device Management (MDM) profile will not install automatically, preventing touchless deployment.
- If a device is not registered on ABM, you are limited in how you can manage it through your MDM.
- Your data may be at risk if a device is not enrolled on your MDM and your users install unapproved applications.
