SimpleMDM allows you to block and hide iOS apps, including system apps, from the iOS home screen.

App restrictions allow you to build either a blacklist of apps not to be shown or run on the device, or a whitelist of apps allowing only the apps listed to appear on the device. This provides the capability to either block just a few specific apps or only show a designated list of apps.

Administrators currently using the single app lock feature (or, guided access) may find the ability to restrict app usage as a suitable replacement in cases where more than one app needs to be made accessible.

This functionality is available today on all supervised iOS devices running iOS 9.3 and later. Want to try it out but don’t have a SimpleMDM account? Demo SimpleMDM today.
