Application update policy for iPhone and iPad

Updated on February 13th, 2024

The Application update policy is a device-specific configuration profile.

You can use the profile to enable or disable the automatic updating of applications that have been deployed to iPhone or iPad devices using Miradore.

The application update policy does not affect apps installed by the device user.


  • You have subscribed to the Miradore Premium plan.
  • The update policy supports devices running iOS/iPadOS 11.3 or later.
  • You must have an Administrator or Editor role in Miradore.
  • The update policy applies only to the apps deployed from Miradore via Apple App Store or Apple Business/School Manager. In-house apps, installed using .ipa files, can be updated manually or using a business policy.

How to check which installed apps have an update available?

With Miradore, you can check which apps, installed on an iPhone or iPad, have an update available. To do this, Open the Device page and go to the Applications tab. There, you will see a blue arrow icon next to those applications which have an update available. See the picture below.
