Configuration profile to disable device name modification on Apple TV

By default, Apple TV allows users to change the name of the device, which can lead to inconsistencies and security issues in a shared environment. To prevent this, you can use a custom configuration profile to disable device name modification and deploy this profile to Apple TVs using Hexnode’s Deploy Custom Configuration feature.


This configuration profile is supported on supervised Apple TV devices running tvOS 11.0 and above.


The sample configuration profiles provided below are created using various profile creator applications.

  • To create and customize configuration profiles, you can use tools like Apple Configurator, Profile Manager or manually create them using text editors.
  • Use non-encrypted .mobileconfig, .xml, or plist files to deploy profiles across devices.
  • Ensure that you do not associate conflicting configurations with the devices.
  • Use wildcards to fetch key values from the portal.
  • It is recommended to manually validate the configuration profile on a system before executing it in bulk.
  • Hexnode will not be responsible for any damage/loss to the system on the behavior of the configuration profile.
