Hexnode adds single app mode on Apple TV


The leading MDM software vendor, Hexnode MDM, earlier this month, announced the release of yet another feature to its rich feature set. Hexnode brings in kiosk management on Apple TVs for its customers. This feature is supported on Apple TVs running tvOS 10.2 and later. The new add-on is indeed promising for the customer requirements to be fulfilled.

Apple TVs can now be set into single app kiosk mode. Locking up the device in single app mode restricts the device to a single app, limiting the operational and display implementations on the device. Additional restrictions are also applicable while in kiosk mode.

Apple TVs can still use AirPlay while in single app kiosk mode unless restricted via the Restrictions payload. Enhanced security for corporate data and resources can be assured with kiosk mode. A rich set of additional settings and functionalities specific for kiosk mode improves device management.

The wide utilization of digital signages in various industries is a classic example of the applications of kiosk. In today’s immensely growing tech world, kiosks have been successfully reserving its space in the modern market. A variety of kiosks, specifically self-service kiosks, information kiosks, internet kiosks, wayfinding kiosks, and advertising kiosks, are being widely accepted in the enterprise world. The applications of kiosk are more popular in industries like healthcare, government, corporate, retails and showrooms, schools, and airports.

Apple TVs are way easier to deploy and with each enhancement added, it surely would bring out a cascade of upswings in the tech world. The doors are wide open for more diverse, enterprise-specific use cases with MDM and tvOS collaborations. The world awaits for more of the Apple TV attributes to unfold.
