Force iOS device name via profile
We would like to force specific device names to the mobile phones and tablets based on variables (e.g. "iPhone%SERIALNUMER%" or "iPad%USERNAME%) and these names have to be forced by the server so a user is unable to change it.
Currently only the the other way round is possible: allow the user to change the name (better said: do not forbid to change the name) and switch SMC server to synchronize the local name.
Changing the device name (for supervised devices) by the MDM system is supported by Apple so I do not see any problems from that side :)
THe same idea as here: https://ideas.sophos.com/forums/143212-sophos-mobile/suggestions/38059135-device-name
