Autonomous single app mode is a feature present in iOS 7.1 and above. The app which is configured as ASAM app will enter the kiosk/single app mode once logged in to and will exit the single app mode once the user finishes working with that app. This mode puts an app in foreground and makes sure that no other app, notification or action interrupt the functioning of this app.
