Hey Darin,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

According to Appleā€™s MDM protocol, certain restrictions that are applied to a managed iOS device can be mirrored on a paired Apple Watch. Hence, if you apply a kiosk policy to an iOS device, it could result in some of the applications disappearing from the corresponding paired Apple watch.

However, if your requirement was to restrict a set of applications in the iOS device, you could blacklist the required applications on the device. Blacklisting can be considered as a workaround so that none of the applications will get hidden in your paired Apple watches.

Hope this clears your query.
