A UEM workspaceAllows you to upload paid public iOS applications and distribute them if Apple's Volume Purchase Program (VPP) is not available. Also for iOS devices, you can set additional restrictions on App Store functionality, including the App Store icon and installing public apps.A UEM workspaceYou can distribute multiple versions of the operating system, but managing iOS 9+ doesn't require users to take any extra steps. It is best to use Apple VPP if possible. VPP can efficiently manage volume-paid public applications and offers a variety of management options.

Assign public payment requests based on organization groups
You can keep VPP development and paid public iOS apps in separate organization groups. You can also enable the paid public presence option in the organization group where the corresponding device is registered.
Make sure you are not deploying the same paid public iOS application in an organization group that is configured with VPP and contains a service token (sToken). If you have VPP configured in an organization group, use the sToken license, which provides better application management and control.
Devices that receive app assignments from their closest organization group. Consider your organization's team hierarchy and where paid public iOS apps are enabled. Assigning an app to an organization group that has no impact on the device may cause installation to fail or the app to be installed on the wrong device.

It allows the user to initiate the installation so that the system does not use excessive bandwidth by automatically installing applications. It also gives users time to purchase the app and delete the original version from the device.
Prevent downloads of paid public apps from app stores with device restrictions
You can set device restrictions to control which applications, hardware, and features your end users can access. You can use these restrictions to increase productivity and protect end users and devices.A UEM workspaceSupport for native iOS restrictions and internal development restrictions that control access to the App Store. you can define itAllow App Store icon on home screenRestrictions in the UEM console to hide the App Store. This restriction removes the icon from the home screen and end users cannot access the App Store. However, end users can still install or update their apps using MDM, giving administrators full control over the apps.
heAllow App Store icon on home screenRestrictions apply only to supervised iOS 9+ devices. In general, supervised devices give you more control over the devices you own and allow you to set limits. Control the app store to restrict or allow device users to access the public apps available there.
