How iOS Configuration Profiles Work?

Restrictions can refer to hardware, features and apps. Such steps help separating personal information from corporate files. It’s a way to protect business, customers, mobile gadgets and also improve productivity.

You can see that MDM restriction profile can easily disable FaceTime, camera option, Siri help, in-app purchases and other features on iPhone and iPad models.

Supervised devices have a limited number of features available to employees. Most app downloads, for example, are available via MDM software and not through the App Store.

Usually you can use Siri help even when your iPhone or iPad is locked. With MDM profile restrictions you will not awake Siri when you hold down your Home button. Such steps are taken to protect corporate information because of the possibility to use Siri on lock screen to access some sensitive data.

When Spotlight restriction is used, employees cannot see suggested sites while searching via this service. This way the company can improve productivity and prevent workers from surfing the web all the time.

Corporate iDevice that are enrolled in MDM program can update applications and download apps through MDM and not via the App Store when its icon is removed from the Home screen. Besides, with automatic app download feature being turned off no corporate user can automatically sync applications and files between different gadgets.

The app-level restrictions are related to disabling a variety of programs that can divert employees’ attention and help them focus on work. Web browsers, App Store, iTunes, YouTube, Siri are only some of the apps that can be restricted.

MDM software makes sure users whose iPhone or iPad is enrolled are not able to erase their device, change settings on it or delete content.
