Enabling Supervised Mode on iOS

Gain more control over an iPhone or iPad so that you restrict certain features and enforce other features.

  3. Create a Blocklist or Allowlist for the Apple App Store

Access similar controls that you get in Supervised Mode for iOS with the additions:

  • Remote Changes. Make changes to managed iOS devices without physically having access to the device (use an online dashboard to sync any changes).
  • Block Apps. See what apps are installed on the device. Prevent install or remove apps remotely. 
  • Enforce Apps. Prevent removal of apps without disabling current apps from updating automatically. 
  • Enforce Built-in Content Filtering. Add a second blocking layer that works even with common bypass methods.
  • Control Device Settings. Enforce settings and restrict users from changing settings.
