How to Add Web Clips to iOS with Hexnode MDM?

Web Clip looks like an app, with a name and icon. When opened, it will take you to a website. To make it clearer for you, let us start with an example. While trying to create a web clip, you entered the label as “Hexnode”, provided the URL https://www.hexnode.com/ and selected an icon of your choice. Then, an ‘app’ named “Hexnode” will be displayed (with the icon you chose) along with other app icons which will take you to https://www.hexnode.com/ when opened.

How Web Clip differs from a Web App?

The main difference between a web app and a web clip is that the web apps are added as bookmarks in Safari whereas a web clip is displayed as one among other apps.
