Improve your organization branding using Wallpaper policy!

Now you can force apply a wallpaper on managed iOS devices and ensure it cannot be removed from the device.


With organizations extensively handing out corporate devices to employees, using organization logo as wallpaper is added as an additional task for Admins. Further, there are chances the users might change the image. Using Wallpaper policy, you can push an image to be set as the wallpaper for Home Screen and/or Lock Screen and also ensure the user cannot change the distributed wallpaper. All that the Admin needs to do is to upload an image corresponding to the device resolution based on the table below and distribute it to the devices. This is applicable for Supervised devices running iOS 7.0 or later versions.

  • If this policy is distributed to the device, the Wallpaper settings present on the device is disabled and thus, the user cannot add/modify the wallpaper. However, if the devices are running between iOS 7.0 and 8.0, the users can change the Wallpaper from the device.
  • Even after the profile is disassociated, the image distributed continues to be the wallpaper image and users have to manually change the wallpaper image through device settings.
  • In case you have associated multiple wallpaper profiles
    per device, the profile that is last associated is only applied
    on the device.
