This method of using iOS container is still supported, but the preferred way to implement the iOS container is the User Based iOS Containerized App Store
On the Android platform, all that is required to enable the security features in the application is to include the Android embedded agent. However, of the iOS platform, there is some additional setup required in addition to including the iOS embedded agent. Due privacy constraints on the iOS platform, native applications cannot easily communicate to each other programmatically, more over access to the UDID attribute of the device was removed in iOS7.
To enable the security features on the App47 platform, you must have configured the iOS container which is described below. Also, for each managed native iOS app, the iOS Security Steps are required to enable the platform security features on the iOS platform.
