The Apple Device Belongs (SUPERVISED) to the Company - How to Check It?

About Supervised Apple Device

Many small, big companies and educational organizations practice supervision mode. It is easy to manage Macs, iPhones, and iPads remotely through a supervised MDM form.

What does supervision mean? A company that uses this mode has easy control over the device that belongs to it. Administrators can distantly monitor smartphones and computers, update their operating system, erase information, lock gadgets, etc. It is a must to say that every Apple device has no supervision mode by default. The company has to enable it through Apple Configurator or another Manager.

Does My Apple Device Belong to the Company?

Customers who have already purchased a second-hand iPhone or iPad and now wish to check if it belongs to the company can look up this information in Settings. Go to the General - About section and see if there is a message about the 'supervised' device. Supervised iPhones and iPad say so in the About section and mention the company's name they are owned by.

On your Mac, visit 'System Preferences' and explore this menu. Users who see 'Profiles' ('Profiles & Device Management') own a computer that is corporate-owned.

How to Check if Apple Devices Belongs to the Company Remotely

Often, you don't have a second-hand iPhone or iPad in hand but wish to check it before purchasing. Through IMEI.org IMEI check services, you can remotely look up the supervised status (MDM), also known as MDM (Mobile Device Management), through IMEI.org services.
