Configure iOS settings

On the iOS tab of the General settings page, you configure settings that are specific to iOS devices.
  1. On the menu sidebar, under SETTINGS, click Setup > General, and then click the iOS tab.
  2. Configure the following settings:
    Option Description
    Activation Lock bypass Select Enable to be able to clear the Activation Lock on supervised devices.

    When this option is selected, Sophos Mobile Control retrieves a bypass code when syncing with a supervised device that has Activation Lock enabled. If required, you can perform the Activation Lock bypass action from the device's Show device page to clear Activation Lock when the device needs to be erased and re-deployed.

    Activation Lock is an iOS security feature to prevent the reactivation of lost or stolen devices. Normally, you need the correct Apple ID and password to clear Activation Lock. With the Activation Lock bypass feature, you can clear Activation Lock by providing the bypass code only.

    Synchronize device name Select Enable to manage iOS devices under the name that is configured on the device.

    When this option is selected, the device name that Sophos Mobile Control uses is set every time the device synchronizes with Sophos Mobile Control.

    When this option is deselected, you set the device name during device enrollment.

  3. Click Save.
