How to prevent users from changing or modifying device date and time settings? There is no existing provision in MDM too. As an MDM provider, we get this a lot from our customers. They want to prevent their users from changing device date and time to manipulate their enterprise apps. Otherwise which is a good alternative right now? How to use network server time for such apps?

Cheers.

Updating to iOS7 while enrolled in an MDM

A handful of our 700 users have started upgrading their iPads to iOS7 (even though we've told them not to, but I'm not surprised).

These users are enrolled onto our MDM, and have various apps and restrictions enforced.

Some of these users have come back to report that "everything has disappeared" post upgrade. Including the enterprise app we've deployed and the MDM agent. Which means to me that the device has become unenrolled.

Some other users have actually updated their devices to iOS7 and their apps/restrictions have remained post update.

So what we're doing is either manually re-enrolling the devices if they're close enough to come into the office, or we're walking the users through it over the phone (which isn't easy).

We're doing some testing now to try and figure out what has happened to the first user, but what I'm wondering is how do others with large deployments of managed iOS devices handle such a significant OS upgrade?

In your experience, do you see this as a smooth transition, or are there common problems which occur?

Thanks
