Manage and share private iOS apps through Google Endpoint Management

What’s changing 

Admins can now upload, manage, and distribute private iOS applications to advanced managed devices.

In the Admin console, under Apps > web and mobile apps > Add app, you’ll now see the “Add Private iOS app” option, which will guide admins through uploading the app, populating information about the app, and configuring the OUs and groups they want the app to be distributed to. 

In the Admin console, navigate to Apps > Web and Mobile apps and then select "Add App".

Once added, you can update, delete, and manage user access to the app.

Who’s impacted 


Why you’d use it

Internally developed, private apps can be useful and relied on by users for a variety of reasons, such as increasing productivity or sharing company specific information, such as cafe menus or campus maps. By giving admins the ability to add and provision custom iOS applications through the Admin console, they can securely distribute their own in-house apps. They can also keep private apps updated easily, because when they upload a new version of the app it’s automatically updated on users’ devices.
