The meaning of “devices” has evolved in the modern workplace, with IT expected to support not only corporate PCs and bring-your-own (BYO) devices, but also manage kiosks, shared single-purpose devices, phone-room resources, collaboration devices such as Surface Hub, and even some IoT devices. Microsoft Intune is the most comprehensive unified endpoint management platform to manage and secure this proliferation of endpoints in your organization. We are excited to share a licensing update today that further lowers your total cost of ownership (TCO).
Microsoft Intune is pleased to announce a new device-only subscription service that helps organizations manage devices that are not affiliated with specific users. The Intune device SKU is licensed per device per month. 
It is worth noting that device-based subscription does not allow you to take advantage of any user-based security and management features, including but not limited to email and calendaring, conditional access, and app protection policies. Device SKU also cannot be used for shared device scenarios where the device is managed through the user(s) on the device. Shared devices that are not affiliated with any user identity can leverage this license, for example, certain Android Enterprise purpose-build devices and kiosks as well as Windows kiosks. This license may provide compelling value for devices using enrollment methods such as Windows Autopilot self-deploying mode, Apple Business Manager or Google zero touch enrolment, where the devices are not associated with a user and no user targeted features are required, such as user-based enrollment, Intune Company Portal, conditional access, and such. 
For more information, please contact your Microsoft representative and review the Microsoft Licensing Terms
(Updated 12/20 to clarify the self-deploying use-case for Windows Autopilot)

How can the Intune for Devices licenses be purchased through the Office/Microsoft 365 admin portal?

So this license can be used to for a self deploying autopilot Kiosk? I am in a project where we want to build a public use multi app Kiosk and self deploy with autopilot. 

Please make the auto MDM enrollment from AAD P1 a part of this license - so we can use Autopilot to provision KIOSK devices.

Link in article does not work anymore. Was content moved or did MSFT have second thoughts on the topic?


Hi Daniel, both links seem to be working fine within the article. Which one did you mean?

Hi Mayunk, thanks for following up. It's the link at the end of your article: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/licensing/product-licensing/products. I believe the embedded URL contains a trailing space which leads to an 404 error.


Hi @Daniel Sidler thanks for calling out. I've fixed it now. Let me know if it is still broken
