How to Update Enterprise Apps in Apple TV

Enterprise apps are custom-made for each organization and deployed to their corresponding devices. They are also called in-house apps and can be developed in-house or by a third-party developer. Since they are solely for the organization, enterprise apps are not available in the App Store. You can push enterprise apps to the device using the “Install Application” action in the Hexnode portal. Once the enterprise apps are pushed to the devices, they can be updated using Hexnode UEM. These apps can be added to the app inventory and pushed silently to the devices.

Notes:


IPA file version code should be changed before updating the enterprise App.
