What you can control on
iOS
devices

BlackBerry UEM
provides all of the tools you need to control the features that
iOS
and
iPadOS
devices allow you to manage. It also includes features that allow you to give device users secure access to work resources without fully managing the device.
Control level
Description
Unmanaged and partially managed devices (devices that are activated on
BlackBerry UEM
but not fully managed)
You can activate a device on
BlackBerry UEM
to provide secure access to work resources without fully managing the device. This option is often used for BYOD devices.
These activations can allow users to access your network over VPN using
BlackBerry 2FA
, share files securely using
BlackBerry Workspaces
, and install
BlackBerry Dynamics
apps such as
BlackBerry Work
and
BlackBerry Access
to access work email and your work intranet.
Partially managed devices with a work profile
You can activate a device on
BlackBerry UEM
to provide secure access to work resources within a work profile. This option is often used for BYOD devices.
With this activation type, a separate work space is created on the device for work apps and the native Notes,
iCloud
Drive, Mail (attachments and full email bodies), Calendar (attachments), and
iCloud Keychain
apps.
Managed devices (devices that are managed by
BlackBerry UEM
)
You can activate a device to be fully manged by
BlackBerry UEM
. This option is often used for corporate-owned devices.
This option lets you manage work data using commands and IT policy rules. You can manage work apps on the device, including
BlackBerry Dynamics
apps.
BlackBerry UEM
supports managing supervised
iOS
devices. Some IT policy rules are supported only on supervised devices
User privacy activations
can provide limited device management capabilities and allow users to access work data using
BlackBerry Dynamics
apps, such as
BlackBerry Work
and
BlackBerry Access
. You can choose to allow some of the following device management features:
  • Access to SIM card and device hardware information: Allow
    BlackBerry UEM
    access to SIM card and device hardware information to enable SIM-based licensing.
  • App management: Allow administrators to install or remove work apps and display a list of installed work apps in the user details screen.
  • IT policy management: Allow a limited set of IT policy rules to be applied to the device (password policies, allow screenshots, allow documents from managed sources in unmanaged destinations, and allow documents from unmanaged sources in managed destinations).
  • Email profile management: Allow email profiles to be applied to the device.
  • Wi-Fi
    profile management: Allow
    Wi-Fi
    profiles to be applied to the device.
  • VPN profile management: Allow VPN profiles to be applied to the device.
User privacy - User enrollment activations
keep user data private and separate from work data. With this activation type, a separate work space is installed on the device for work apps and some native apps. This activation type enables app management, IT policy management, email profiles,
Wi-Fi
profiles, and per-app VPN. Administrators can manage work data (for example, wipe work data) without affecting personal data.
This activation type is supported on unsupervised devices that run
iOS
or and
iPadOS
13.1 and later.
