Question, if I deploy an IOS VPP app, as available to a user group. If the VPP token is set to do an automatic update.
the user installs the Available app on there ios device. Does the app get updated automatically or the user has to open up the Comp portal and a pop up window shows up and the user has to press install and update it manually all the time.

    @Andy Louie , If the assignment type is available for enrolled devices, we can install the available update from the Company Portal by selecting the Update action on the app details page. Here is the official document for the reference:

    Hope it can help.

    hello thank you for the information based on the chart it sounds like its a choice.
    It says it can also be installed from the company portal by doing the update action but it doesn't mention that the avavivable app can also be updated automatically without going into the company portal. Just want to see if I can do the updates automatically without any user intervention.

    Thank you

    thanks for the information the instruction from Microsoft was a little vague on that part.
