Prevent from changing the wallpaper.

expand collapsive

We have certain company devices in our field, with the company logo as the wallpaper. We found that certain devices wallpapers are now being changed. Is there any ways to prevent the users from modifying the wallpapers on iPads?

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Please navigate to iOS–>Advanced Restrictions–>Allow Security and Privacy Settings. Disable the ‘Modify Wallpaper’ option. The users then cannot change the home screen and lock screen wallpapers from the device. The feature is supported only on iOS 9.0+ devices.

    Kindly use the help link for further insights into iOS Restrictions.

    Cheers

    Is there a way to push the desired wallpaper to the iOS devices?

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Yes, Hexnode enables you to set home screen and lock screen wallpapers on iOS devices. Please note that the feature is supported only on supervised iOS devices.
    To set up the wallpaper via policy:

    • Navigate to Policies-> iOS-> Configurations-> Wallpaper. Click Configure.
    • Click on upload image and select the desired home/lock screen wallpaper from the system.
    • Associate targets and save the policy.

    Please check out the help doc on setting up wallpaper on iOS devices for more info.

    Cheers!
