Article summary

QR Code or Device Enrollment Configurations are a quick and easy way to enroll your iOS devices. By creating a QR Code configuration, you can choose the default Group or Profile and a naming convention for the devices that are enrolled using this QR Code.

Additionally, these Configurations also provide you with a URL that can be used with Apple Configurator 2 or directly on Safari on the iOS device. 

This enrollment method lets you enroll the devices in Company Owned Device Management mode. If you are looking to let your employees enroll their personal devices, please refer to our Enroll iOS Devices using Personal/BYOD QR Code guide.
