Hi  @ronnie, as @finn rightly pointed out, it all comes down to the requirements of your organization. However, here are a few features that you can take into consideration while applying restrictions.

  • Camera, FaceTime and Screen capture
  • Safari – Enable Fraud warning, Block pop-ups
  • Explicit content in music, podcast and iTunes
  • iBooks store erotica
  • Limit ad tracking to prevent targeted ads from advertising networks to be displayed to students
  • Set content ratings for movies and TV shows based on your selected region.
  • Hide App Store on the device

Apart from these basic restrictions, Supervision in iPads unlocks several advanced restrictions that can be managed with a simple checkbox:

  • Restrict Game Center
  • Prevent students from installing configuration profiles and certificates on their devices
  • Deny students the access to erase their devices and reset them to factory settings with ‘Erase Content and settings’
  • Use profanity filter to forbid Siri from using abusive languages
  • Prevent students from enabling their own device restrictions or parental controls by unchecking ‘Modify
  • Restrictions/Screen Time’
  • Restrict ‘Modify Passcode’ to disable users from editing passcode settings
  • Restrict ‘Modify Device name’
  • Restrict ‘Modify Wallpaper’
  • Restrict ‘Install app from App Store’
  • Restrict ‘Remove apps’ or ‘Remove system apps’
  • Restrict apps like Apple Music, iTunes Radio, Podcasts, News
  • Blacklist/Whitelist apps in Policies

You can also lock down your supervised devices into kiosk mode and configure advanced kiosk restrictions. Check out the iOS kiosk complete guide to learn more.

Please verify if the restriction/feature supports the version of your OS before applying to the device.

Do check out iOS restrictions to learn more on the full extent of restrictions that can be applied to your devices using Hexnode!
