Converting installed iOS apps from unmanaged to managed
In the recently released iOS 9, Apple introduced some new possibilities for iOS device management. We started implementing these improvements into Miradore Online with the possibility to convert installed iOS applications from unmanaged to managed. As the word states, these applications can then be managed, and for example, can be uninstalled remotely if that is needed.
To convert an installed application into managed you just need to deploy the same application over the existing, manually installed one. If the target device is in Supervised mode, this operation is fully silent without any user interaction. If device is not in Supervised mode, end user will see a notification with a selection to let the application to be managed or not.
As mentioned, this new option is supported only on iOS 9 devices.
