With Hexnode MDM, you can not just deploy iOS apps, but specify in-app configurations as well.Admins can pre-configure in-app settings like logins and accounts thus eliminating the need for users to set up apps for first-time use.
The set of variables that can be configured depends on the provisions built in by the app developer and can vary vendor to vendor. These app configurations are pushed in XML format, alongside the deployed app or as standalone for already installed apps.
