Without GroundControl, iOS devices show a number of screens during device setup. The exact screens shown vary depending on device model and iOS version.
- Restore Option
- Terms and Conditions
- Apple ID
- Touch ID
- Apple Pay
- Migrate from Android
GroundControl’s Supervision Options allow most of these screens to be skipped, saving a significant amount of deployment time.
Under certain conditions, GroundControl can skip all device setup screens. Besides saving more time, this provides an additional benefit — the device will immediately begin installing any apps pushed via MDM.
The conditions to skip all setup screens are:
- Include a backup to restore, and the backup must be iOS 9.2 or greater
- Device must be iOS 9.2 or greater
