Swift Question

Add network profile into the iOS 10 application

I have a network app written on swift for iOS 10.x. The app needs specific network configuration (related to Wi-Fi) and it's working properly in a case when I creating network profile manually using Apple Configurator 2 and then push this profile to iOS 10 device.

Question 1: Is it possible to include network profile into the iOS 10 app and install this profile with the app automatically?

Question 2: Is there some way to install network profile to iOS 10 devices without Apple Configurator?

As stated in https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/NetworkingInternet/Conceptual/iPhoneOTAConfiguration/Introduction/Introduction.html

There are four ways to deploy configuration profiles:

  • By physically connecting the device
  • In an email message
  • On a webpage
  • Using over-the air configuration as described in this document

Maybe you can force the user to open a web page using a link which points to the profile. Make sure that if the user clicks on the link that the link gets opened in safari not in you app.
