14.1 What is a supervised device?

Supervision mode on an iOS device, enables ZENworks to apply additional restrictions on the device. For example, by assigning a Device Control Policy, ZENworks can prevent users from modifying accounts, restrict the iMessage app and so on. You can enroll an iOS or an iPadOS device as a supervised device in the following ways:

  • Enrolling the device using the Apple Device Enrollment Program

  • Enrolling the device using Apple Configurator

To enroll a device in the non-supervised mode, you can manually enroll the device using the ZENworks User Portal. For more information, see Enrolling an iOS Device Manually.
