iOS Supervized vs Unsupervized comparison:

iOS 13 User Enrollment (BETA):

 Allowed and NOT allowed MDM functions...

Allowed in User Enrollment:

  • Configure accounts
  • Configure Per-app VPN
  • Install apps
  • Require a passcode
  • Enforce certain restrictions
  • Query information about managed apps
  • Remove any apps or accounts configured

NOT Allowed in User Enrollment:

  • Obtain any persistent device identities (like Serial Number, UDID or Exchange ActiveSync ID)
  • Require complex alphanumeric passcodes
  • Clear the device passcode
  • Take over management of an app that a user installed themselves
  • Query information about personal apps
  • Remotely wipe the entire device
  • Access any cellular features
  • Add Payloads that collect logs on the device
  • Add any supervised restrictions to the user's device

iOS Enrollment Agent vs Agentless:

  • AirWatch Agent is used for FIXED periodic sync. On agentless config, the OS itself will be deciding when to sync based on load, network and battery conditions = not stable sync.
  • SDK-based application is (currently) NOT reliably Boxer - SDK is not fully integrated in this app
  • SDK-based application is NOT Workspace ONE client - it uses AppConfig only, no SDK
  • If AirWatch Browser or Content Locker is used as SDK-based application, then Telecom info will NOT be available, because it is not used in these apps. Custom application with full SDK is needed for those features to work!
