Apple New tools for iOS environment

It looks like Apple will be launching some new web tools for iOS deployments along side the iOS 7.1 update in March.

Apple now has a new website called Volume Services. The site will launch with new features like the ability to “Automate MDM Enrolment” and “Buy Apps and Books in Volume.”

A tentpole feature for the new MDM system will be over-the-air supervision of deployed iOS devices, which will allow institutions to easily monitor and protect large iOS device deployments, the person said. For example, a school administrator would be able to set and lock device profiles, data and other information without risking deletion by the student.
