Enable Activation Lock for an
iOS
device

The Activation Lock feature on
iOS
devices allows users to protect their devices if they are lost or stolen. When the feature is enabled, the user must confirm the
Apple
ID and password to disable Find My
iPhone
, erase the device, or reactivate and use the device.
When a device is activated on
BlackBerry UEM
, Activation Lock is disabled by default. You can enable it for each device individually, or you can enable it for multiple devices using the associated IT policy rule. When you enable Activation Lock,
UEM
stores a bypass code that you can use to clear the lock so that the device can be erased and reactivated without the user's
Apple
ID and password.
Complete the following steps to enable Activation Lock for each device individually.
  • The device must be supervised.
  • The device must be associated with an
    iCloud
    account.
  • The device must have Find My
    iPhone
    or Find My
    iPad
    enabled.

    .
  2. Search for and click a user account.
  3. On the device tab, in the
    Manage device
    section, click
    Enable Activation Lock
    .
  • To disable Activation Lock for a device, click
    Disable Activation Lock
    . If Activation Lock is enabled using the IT policy rule, you cannot use this option to disable it.
