Web Clips settings

Use this payload to add web clips to the Home screen of the user’s iOS device or to the Dock on a Mac. Web clips provide fast access to favorite webpages. You can add multiple web clips by clicking the add button.

Note: Use the Web Clips payload for iOS and OS X user and user group configuration profiles. For more information, see About profiles and payloads and Payload best practices.

For example, to add the online version of the iPhone User Guide to the Home screen, specify the URL https://help.apple.com/iphone/.

For iOS devices, if you prevent the user from removing the web clip, the only way to remove it is to remove the configuration profile that installed it.

To add a custom icon, select a graphics file in GIF, JPEG, or PNG format. For best results, provide a square image that’s no larger than 400 x 400 pixels and less than 1 MB when uncompressed. The graphics file is automatically scaled and cropped to fit, if necessary, and converted to PNG format. Web clip icons are 144 x 144 pixels for iPad devices with a Retina display, and 114 x 114 pixels for iPhone devices. To prevent the device from adding a shine to the image, choose Precomposed Icon.

A full-screen web clip on iOS devices opens the URL as a web app without a browser (there’s no URL or search bar, and no bookmarks).

You can add web clips by clicking the add payload button.
