What is the MDM configuration profile (remote management profile)?
For iOS operating system, there are configuration profiles, with which you can flexibly configure Apple devices for corporate use. MDM profile (Mobile Device Management) allows a company or organization to install and configure an employee iPhone, iPad, iMac or MacBook with the company’s own remote management profile. That means the administrator (company) of the enterprise environment MDM when configured on an iDevice, can disable the features, install and uninstall programs, monitor, track the employee’s location, restrict Internet traffic, and even block or even wipe the Apple device remotely.
Why can’t i activate an iPhone or iPad on which corporate MDM remote management profile is installed?
Every corporate Apple device, whether it’s an iPhone or an iPad, on which remote management profile is installed, is always protected by a unique login and password that is assigned to each employee by the IT department administrator.
On corporate devices, an additional level of authentication is created, which is different from Apple id (iCloud) activation, all user credentials (login, password) are not stored on the Apple server, but directly on the company’s profile configurator. In view of this, you can only delete an MDM profile from an iPhone or iPad directly with an administrator (company), contacting Apple Support will not work or remove it.
