GroundControl locks devices using a Custom B2B App, which is distributed through Apple’s iTunes VPP program. There is no charge for the GroundControl Locker app.
To obtain the app, please email email@example.com. Please include:
- The Apple ID associated with your organization’s VPP account.
- If using Apple Business Manager, include your organization’s Apple Customer Number, DEP Reseller ID & the Organization DEP Customer ID.
After we associate the app with your organization, your VPP administrator must “purchase” (for free) a number of copies of the app. It does not matter how many copies are purchased, but it should be sufficient to cover the quantity of devices you have. Go ahead, get 1,000.
After purchase, the app will appear within your MDM alongside your other VPP apps. Depending on the MDM you’re using you may need the following information:
- App Bundle ID: “com.groundctl.b2b.locker”.
- App Store URL: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/groundcontrol-locker/id1339042245?ls=1&mt=8
- App icon URL:/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/square-teal.png
- App Icon:
After the app is available, configure your MDM to automatically deploy to the appropriate group of devices on enrollment.
