You can control from where end users install public applications by enabling Restricted Mode on Apple iOS devices. After enrollment, end users can access free public applications deployed to their catalogs, but they are unable to download free public applications from the App Store. Control from where end users install public applications by enabling Restricted Mode for Public iOS Applications. Restricted Mode restricts the device by allowing you to install only the assigned applications approved by the organization. Enabling the setting SEsends a restricted profile to Apple iOS devices. The presence of this restricted profile does not require an extra restriction profile with the Allow installing public apps option enabled to block the app store.

This restriction is the same as the iOS restriction Allow App Store icon on Home screen found in Devices > Profiles &Resources > Profiles. Workspace ONE UEM deploys the Restricted Mode option to devices and it blocks end users from the app store. Workspace ONE UEM can deploy the public applications, which ensures that your organization approves them.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > Apps > Workspace ONE > App Restrictions.
  2. Select Restricted Mode for Public iOS Applications.
