This article is part of our guide: What is Apple Business Manager?

Apple has made Apple Business Manager free of charge. So it shouldn’t cost you anything.

If your business is using Apple devices, signing up for Apple Business Manager is highly recommended.

However, there are two things any business should know:

  • Apple Business Manager alone doesn’t suffice for businesses willing to manage a fleet of devices. It should typically be coupled with an EMM or MDM solution which isn’t free of charge.
  • Apple has launched Apple Business Manager Essentials which is a paid subscription, providing all the features from Apple Business Manager free of charge. What admins pay for is BYOD management, Mobile Device Management and cloud storage.
