Enable Make App MDM Managed if User Installed when you assign the application with the flexible deployment feature.

Supported iOS Device Statuses

Workspace ONE UEM can assume management of user-installed applications on devices in either the supervised or unsupervised status.

Time to Managed Status

The time the system takes over management capabilities of applications depends on the enrollment status of the device. The system manages the application upon the device enrollment or when you publish it. The following table outlines these two scenarios.
