Silent App Installation

For corporate owned devices, Silent Application Installation becomes an important feature. This allows you to make sure that the devices all have the applications that you want them to.

Silent Application Installation is only possible on Supervised devices. However since MobiLock Pro does not support VPP feature for now, there are some additional steps that you have to perform to achieve this on your devices for the Free applications that you distribute from iTunes store.

Here are the details on how to enable Silent App Installation on the devices.
