Automatic updating of iOS/iPadOS Kiosk (15.3+)


The New App Portal in FileWave 15.3.0 represents a significant upgrade designed to enhance the management and distribution of apps across iOS/iPadOS devices. This feature aims to simplify app deployment, allowing for a more streamlined and efficient process for administrators and end-users alike. By automatically installing the New App Portal on managed devices, FileWave ensures that users have access to the latest and most relevant applications required for their tasks, without the need for manual updates or installations.


In order to simplify and ensure that the Kiosk is always current we have implemented a feature that will automatically handle the updates to the Kiosk so that you no longer need to worry about the .IPA on iOS or iPadOS.


  • FileWave 15.3.0 will automatically install the new App Portal to all iOS/iPadOS devices managed by FileWave.

  • The Webclip to the old App Portal will be removed from the devices.

  • Filesets of the previous native App Portal will not be impacted by this change, they will still be installed on associated devices. Administrators can remove these associations to keep only the new App Portal on the devices.

  • Every upcoming release of the new App Portal will be automatically deployed to all iOS/iPadOS devices.
