iOS Profile Configurations


MobiControl offers several device configurations ranging from password authentication, email configuration, VPN settings to fonts and web clips. See the sections below for descriptions of each configuration available on the iOS platform.

Visit Profiles tab for more information on setting up profiles and assigning them to your devices.

Default Profiles

The iOS platform has two profiles that are configured by default: an App Catalog and a Profile Catalog. Both default profiles are simple web clips that point towards to the web address for either the App Catalog or the Profile Catalog. Do not delete these default profiles.

The App Catalog allows device users to view or download applications that have been pushed to their devices through an Application Catalog rule.

The Profile Catalog allows device users to view or download profile configurations that are pushed to their devices via a Profile.
