Enterprise vs Standard
The vast majority if not all of the apps that currently reside on your phone will indeed have been obtained by downloading directly from the Apple Appstore. The enterprise account allows you to install .ipa’s(The extension name of iOS bundled apps) to iOS devices without the need to use or upload to the app store. If you have a standard account and try and distribute them outside the Appstore then you’ll probably find that they won’t work unless that specific device has been registered with the Apple developer portal. Enter Enterprise builds, these builds can be installed on any ios device, regardless of whether the UDID(Unique device identification) has been registered to the developer portal. This allows for quick distribution of apps within your enterprise.
