  • Hi,

    yes you can deploy applications to IOS using Configuration manager 2012 sp1 + Intune integration. More information can be found here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/configmgrdogs/archive/2012/10/09/configmgr-2012-sp1-deploy-ios-and-android-apps.aspx

  • As a sidenote, I can add, that  you can’t force an installation of an application to an iOS device.
    But you can make the application "Available" for the users to install install them.

    (At least to my limited knowledge on this subject).

  • You can do a lot with Configuration Manager Intune and iOS devices however, I'm going to make a guess that you're not currently a Configuration Manager Admin (feel free to correct my if I'm wrong) If you are not you should probably be using Apple's Profile Manager which comes with OSX server to Manage iPads alone. If you also need to manage Windows Devices and Ipads then Configuration manager is an excellent solution.

  • Yes. You can manage those devices with Microsoft technology only. You need ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 and the Intune integration.
