Hide apps (not delete) on iOS?

Hi all,

Is there a way to hide apps from the homescreen in iOS without removing them entirely from the phone? I know how to do it manually on my phone, but I'm not sure I've found anything that works within Jamf.

 

We have a content filter application that needs to be installed to function, but the app itself only contains text and so it seems to confuse our users if it's visible on the home screen.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

You can setup a config profile and under the "Restrictions > Apps" payload you can change "App Usage" to "Some apps not allowed". Then put in the app name of the app(s) you want to hide. This will hide them from the home screen. I don't think this has any other affect other then hiding them.

That did the trick, thank you!
