Shared iPad for Business Complex Passcode

Copper Contributor

The restriction on Shared iPads for business that requires a Complex Passcode just to unlock the device is preventing us from being able to use this feature. It's such a terrible experience for our field workers who would be constantly having to type a complex alphanumeric code just to access their device vs a standard number pin. Is there any timeline on getting this complex passcode requirement reduced?

I hear you. We have a similar situation.
This is an Apple limitation (not MS or Intune). In shared mode Apple enforces that a complex passcode is used. The only way for iPad users to be able to use a 4/6-digit PIN or biometrics (FaceID or fingerprint) is on user enrolled iPads (IE, not shared-mode).
This functionality is by design.
