Access Point Name configuration (iOS device policy)

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


The Access Point Name configuration is deprecated in favor of the Cellular configuration. See Cellular configuration (iOS device policy).


If these settings are not correct, the device can’t access data using the cellular network. To undo settings changes, the policy must be removed from the device.
