iOS Restrictions Allowed by Apple for MDM

The list below includes the iOS restrictions you can use to create profiles to lock down or allow various apps, content and settings on managed iPads. The first list includes the restrictions for the basic iOS native or general settings. Then come the Application Restrictions. Last are the Media Settings. The list comes from JAMFPro MDM, but many MDM systems can do the same things. Apple actually controls what can be restricted. Those of you using JAMFPro, the list below is very, very similar to what you will find in their product. You can find the full list of commands available to developers for configuration profiles in this article.
