Access Point Name configuration (iOS device profile)

With the Access Point Name configuration you specify an Access Point Name (APN) configuration for iOS devices. APN configurations define how devices connect to a mobile network.

Note: The Access Point Name configuration is deprecated in favor of the Cellular configuration. See Cellular configuration (iOS device profile)
Important: If these settings are not correct, the device cannot access data using the cellular network. To undo settings changes, the profile must be removed from the device.
