Hi there,

We are currently working on deployment and configuration profiles in Intune for a customer using IOS devices. Our customer is concerned about photos on the devices being lost (e.g. during a remote wipe) and wants to ensure that photos are always pushed up to O365. I've found the setting "Camera Uploads" in the OneDrive app which enables all photos on the device to be uploaded into OneDrive. However I'm struggling to find out how I can enable this through Intune. Is it possible to automatically enable this setting?

Hi,

Unfortunately this feature is not available in Intune yet even though the "Camera Uploads" option is available in the OneDrive client. Even the App Protection Policy for iOS have a policy to enable iCloud backup for organization data.
Further in App Protection Policies you have the option of "Save copies of org data" and select OneDrive for Business. However photos won't go under Org Data so they will not be uploaded automatically.
