Blocking AppStore in Apple Devices

Using Codeproof, The Administrator can disable AppStore from all the iPhone and iPad devices. This will prevent the user from installing apps from AppStore.  Usually the Administrator will install the required apps in the device first and then disable AppStore before handovering devices to employees/users. [To install apps using Codeproof platform please refer to this article]

After installing required apps, Administrator can simply hide AappStore from all the enrolled devices at once.
