Configure settings for built in iOS apps (camera and photos)

New Contributor

Hi Jamf community! I have a need to configure the settings below globally on our fleet of iPads. I am hoping someone has found a way to do this as doing it manually is not overly appealing!

  1. Settings > Camera > Formats - Most Compatible
  2. Settings > Photos > Transfer to Mac or PC - Automatic
  3. Camera - disable live photos

Any info would be great!

I’m by interested to see if this can be done, too.

I need this also, deploying hundreds of iPhones to a bunch of Windows users will cause issues with their precious pictures. Can't it be scripted somehow?

Unfortunately, none of these settings is currently available to administer. Apple would need to make these options available for Jamf to manage. At most, you an enable/disable the Camera app and FaceTime use. All manageable settings you see in a new Device Configuration Profile are what's possible.

As far a scripting is concerned, iOS devices don't support running scripts or any Terminal commands like macOS.
