Home screen layout device policy

The Home screen layout device policy lets you specify the layout of apps and folders for the iOS Home screen of supervised iOS devices.

Important:

Deploying multiple Home Screen Layout polices to a device results in an iOS error on the device. This limitation applies whether you define the home screen through this Endpoint Management policy or through the Apple Configurator.

To add or configure this policy, go to Configure > Device Policies. For more information, see Device policies.
