I have a shared iPad that I need to connect to WiFi.  On the older models, you can push the home button twice and access WiFi devices.

I might have found a piece of the puzzle. On newer iPads, you can push the power button twice, and WiFi connections pop up. This worked on an older version of iOS. I just updated one of my test iPads and pushing the power button twice no longer works. Apple and/or Microsoft might have eliminated this ability unless they changed it again. Does anyone know if this is still possible?
Hi Kurt,

Is this device registered with Intune? If does, why don’t you use IOS config profile -WiFi and eliminate the shortcut?

Sorry if missing something in your scenario!
