Some apps that are built with the AppConnect for iOS SDK can behave as either an AppConnect-enabled app, or a regular, unsecured, standalone app. These apps are called dual-mode apps. For example, Email+ for iOS is a dual-mode app. As a dual-mode app, the same app can behave as a secure enterprise app for enterprise users, or as a regular app for general consumers.
A dual-mode app behaves as an AppConnect-enabled app on a device when:
- The device is registered to Ivanti Neurons for MDM and Go is installed on the device.
- You have configured Ivanti Neurons for MDM to support AppConnect with the relevant AppConnect configurations.
Otherwise, the app behaves as a regular, unsecured, standalone app.
Regarding the decision to run as an AppConnect-enabled app versus a regular app:
- Some dual-mode apps allow the device user to change the app into an AppConnect-enabled app or regular app after having already run it the other way.
- Some dual-mode apps require the user to uninstall and reinstall the app to make this change.
- Some apps delay their decision to run as an AppConnect-enabled app or regular app until after Go is installed on the device.
