Configure the connection to AirPlay devices to enable streaming of music, photos, and videos from the iOS MDM device to AirPlay devices. To be able to use AirPlay technology, the mobile device and AirPlay devices must be connected to the same wireless network. AirPlay devices include Apple TV devices (of the second and third generations), AirPort Express devices, speakers or radio sets with AirPlay support.

Automatic connection to AirPlay devices is available for controlled devices only.

To configure the connection of an iOS MDM device to AirPlay devices:

  1. In the console tree, in the Managed devices folder, select the administration group to which the iOS MDM devices belong.
  2. In the workspace of the group, select the Policies tab.
  3. Open the policy properties window by double-clicking.
  4. In the policy Properties window, select the AirPlay section.
  5. In the AirPlay devices section, select the Apply settings on device check box.
  6. Click the Add button in the Passwords section.

    An empty row is added in the password table.

  7. In the Device name column, enter the name of the AirPlay device on the wireless network.
  8. In the Password column, enter the password to the AirPlay device.
  9. To restrict access of iOS MDM devices to AirPlay devices, create a list of allowed devices in the Allowed devices section. To do so, add the MAC addresses of AirPlay devices to the list of allowed devices.

    Access to AirPlay devices that are not on the list of allowed devices is blocked. If the list of allowed devices is left blank, Kaspersky Device Management for iOS will allow access to all AirPlay devices.

  10. Click the Apply button to save the changes you have made.

As a result, once the policy is applied, the user's mobile device will automatically connect to AirPlay devices to stream media content.
