iOS 9.3 will aim at business users with boosted IT admin controls
"Apple's forthcoming iOS 9.3 release will give IT administrators control over employees' iPhone home screen layouts and downloaded apps.
Developer Steve Troughton-Smith spotted the business-focused features in Apple's recently updated Configuration Profile Reference document that details plans to introduce a tool to enable IT managers to enforce a home screen layout on employees' iPhones.
This means that a company can ensure that apps it wants workers to use can't be moved to a folder or a different page.
Apple explained: ‘The Home Screen Layout Payload is designated by specifying com.apple.homescreenlayout as the PayloadType value. It can contain only one payload, which must be supervised. It is supported on the User Channel. This payload defines a layout of apps, folders and web clips for the Home screen.’”
