Use these settings to configure the layout of apps, folders, and web clips on the dock and Home screen of all iOS devices to which you assign the policy.

iOS devices to which you assign the profile must be in supervised mode and running iOS 9.3 or later.

  1. On the Device features blade choose Home Screen Layout (supervised only).
  2. On the Home Screen Layout (supervised only) blade, choose whether you want to configure the Dock, or Pages layouts.

Add items to the dock

On the Dock blade, you can add up to 6 items or folders to the dock at the bottom of the iOS screen. However, many devices support less items than this, for example, iPhone devices support up to 4 items. In this case, only the first four items you configured will be displayed on the device.

  1. Choose Add to add an item to the dock.
  2. On the Add Row blade, choose whether you want to add an App, or a Folder.
  3. Using the information in the How to add an app to the list and How to add a folder to the list sections in this topic, configure the apps and folders you want to appear in the dock.
  4. Continue to add items. When you are finished, click OK on each blade until you return to the Create Profile blade. Choose Create.
Tip

You can drag and drop items in any Home screen and pages lists to reorder them.

Example

In this example, you've configured the dock screen to show only the Safari, Mail, and Stocks apps. In the following image, the Mail app is selected to illustrate its properties:

Add Home screen pages

Add the pages you want to appear on the home screen, and the apps that will appear on each page. Apps that you add to a page are arranged from left to right, in the order they are specified in the list. If you add more apps than can fit on a page, the apps will be moved to a subsequent page.

  1. On the Pages blade, choose Add.
  2. On the Add Row blade, enter a Page name. This is used for your reference in the Intune portal, and is not displayed on the iOS device.
  3. Choose Add, then choose whether you want to add an App, or a Folder to the page.
  4. Using the information in the How to add an app to the list and How to add a folder to the list sections in this topic, configure the apps and folders you want to appear on the page.

Example

In this example, you've configured a new page named Contoso. The page shows only the Find Friends, and Settings apps. In the following image, the Settings app is selected to illustrate its properties:
