Restriction profiles limit how employees can use their iOS devices and give administrators the ability to lock down the native functionality of iOS devices and enforce data-loss prevention.

Certain restriction options on the Restrictions profile page have an icon displayed to the right, which indicates the minimum iOS version required to enforce that restriction. For example, the iOS 7 + Supervised icon next to the Allow AirDrop check box means only devices running iOS 7 that are also set to run in Supervised mode using Apple Configurator or Apple's Device Enrollment Program are affected by this restriction.

The step-by-step instructions listed here list a few functional examples of settings you can restrict. To see a complete list of iOS version and supervised requirements, see Appendix A – iOS Functionality: Supervised vs. Unsupervised.
