How to set up Single App Mode via MDM

Single App Mode locks the iPad into a single app using an MDM setting. When in Single App Mode, there is no way to close the application unless a new configuration is pushed by the team who manages the device. Check with your MDM provider for platform-specific instructions on how to manage your devices in Single App Mode. If you need the app's bundle identifier, use io.eden.Grimoire2.
