iOS 8.3 Configuration Profile additions (and one removal)

Your rating: None (4 votes)

So far, Apple's hasn't updated the Configuration Profile Reference for iOS 8.3. But we did a diff on Configurator-generated restrictions, and here is what we found:

'New to iOS 8.3

  • forceWatchWristDetection
  • allowFingerprintModification (Supervised only)

Removed from iOS 8.3

  • allowYouTube

If we figure out more we'll let you know.

I don't know. I can't figure that out either. A back door for an overreaching mobility admin?

Its to protect defined fingerprints in the database in so they can't be replaced or added to; or alternatively, to prevent fingerprints being used to lock the device. That's my take.
