Example of today's headline: School bus driver who raped a 14yr old won't go to prison.
We have suppressed the News App, we have turned off the Notifications for News.
And still, the News Widget is splashing these "Headlines" across Student iPads.
I have searched through Config Profile options for any reference to Widgets, not finding anything.
Has anyone found a way to make it stop?
Eeek... yeah it would be nice to have a dedicated widgets restriction. When I installed a restrictions profile on my iPad this morning to test, I blacklisted
com.apple.news and disabled "Allow News" and the News app disappears from the widgets list (so it doesn't even appear as an option in the notifications settings b/c it's gone).
It's been about 3-4 hours without a News notification coming through, is this your setup as well? I would think those 2 restrictions would cover anything News related. The only other restriction I see that might come into play is disabling "Show Today view on Lock screen." I'm on the latest iOS 12.2.
