What is Apple Developer Enterprise Program?

The Apple Developer Enterprise Program is a solution that allows large organizations to deploy and develop proprietary and internal-use applications to their employees. The program is for precise use cases that need private distribution directly to employees through secure internal systems or a Mobile Device Management solution.


Organizations can use this program only for the internal distribution of proprietary apps in some specific cases. These cases should not be effectively addressed with custom apps through Apple Business Manager, public apps on the App Store, or beta testing using TestFlight.

Here are some major eligibility requirements for the organizations.

  • The organization should have 100 or more employees
  • The organization should be a legal entity. The program does not accept fictitious business, DBAs, branches, or trade names
  • The organization should use the program only to create in-house apps for internal use and to distribute these apps securely to employees
  • The organization should have systems in place to protect membership credentials and assets and to certify only employees download these internal-use apps
  • The organization should participate in Apple's verification interview, evaluation process and pass it

Now that you know what the eligibility criteria are to apply for Apple Developer Enterprise Program, let us find out how you can start using it.
