How to update Store apps and Enterprise apps on iOS devices?

App updates improve user experience with newer versions of an app. But every version release may not be required by your organization. With Hexnode UEM, you can update store apps and in-house apps across all your iOS devices when deemed necessary.

Notes:

  • Silent app installation is possible in case of Supervised iOS devices. Other devices may prompt the user to install the app.
