„Kiosk Mode“ hilft der Bedienung von iPhones, die dauerhaft als Webcam am Mac hängen

Baumelt ein altes iPhone dauerhaft als Webcam am Mac, lässt sich das Telefon im „Single App Mode“ bequemer ein- und auch wieder ausschalten. Clever!

I will only be using the iPhone 6 Plus as a webcam and I will have it permanently mounted to my monitor, so to make it easier to launch the Camo app on the iPhone after the phone have been locked, I put the iPhone into Single App Mode using Apple Configurator and disabled the passcode on the phone. When in Single App Mode (sometimes also referred to as „kiosk mode“), the iPhone will only be able to launch a single app and the app will automatically be launched when the phone is unlocked.

Single App Mode can be enabled using Apple Configurator by plugging your phone into the Mac and selecting Actions > Advanced > Start Single App Mode…. That will make the iPhone supervised meaning that its features can be restricted from elsewhere by installing profiles. After supervision has been enabled, you will be prompted to select the app to be used in Single App Mode. […]

Now I can tap the Home button to launch the Camo app. When I’m done with a video call, I will press the side button to prevent Camo on the Mac from starting the webcam. Both buttons can easily be pressed without taking the phone off the mount.
