How to update Hexnode app in iOS devices without exiting kiosk

The UEM app gets installed automatically, once the device gets enrolled in Hexnode. Updating the Hexnode UEM app on kiosk-enabled iOS devices reduce the effort of exiting the kiosk mode every time there is an update. Each iOS device must be physically connected to a macOS computer via a USB cable to push the updates.


The device must be signed in to the Apple ID account for app installation and updates.
