Configure lock screen/wallpaper on iOS devices at enrollment (as per Configurator)
In Apple Configurator, part of the enrollment profile is the ability to set options for the lock screen such as what information is displayed, and set a lockscreen wallpaper. In a school environment, being able to display the device name and brand the lock screen with a custom background would be increadibly useful, and this currently is not able to be done via InTune/ConfigMgr.
Add this functionality please.
Thanks @Stuart, yes, it’s true, we released this as part of the January update, as described in the What’s New for January 21, 2019
Thanks for all your feedback! We hope you’ll use your votes for what you’d like us to focus on next!

Is this feature specific to iOS versions? I have a group of older iPads at a school that are all running iOS 10.3.3, and Intune tells me that this policy is not applicable to them.
Thanks for this feature rolling out.
According to the tip, to display different images on the lock screen and home screen, we have to create a profile with each one then assign both profiles to iOS user or device groups.
Maybe I don't think well but is it not better to get following options :
- Current process in case of the same pictures for lock screen and home screen.
- In case of different pictures for lock screen and home screen to add one row to configure lock screen and another one to configure home screen.
I'd also like to add that this feature is now in the Intune for Education console as well!

This functionality has now been released. Take a look at the 'What's new' Intune page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/whats-new#customize-wallpaper-on-supervised-ios-devices-using-a-device-configuration-profile-

The lack of this feature is a problem in most school districts and is driving us to look at JAMF for our MDM system
waiting for this
What is de status of this? its now 18th of Jan..... they are working on this for like 6 months..
Other MDM/MAM services have this already.
We are currently waiting for this feature so we can begin testing Intune for our needs. This is a requirement for our company to deploy iPads in the field.

Hello, any update on this?
Also inquiring about an update.
Any updates on this feature? I am re-posting the links to the Apple development documentation in hopes that it will assist the Microsoft development team.
This is stand functionality for all other MDM vendors with supervised and DEP devices. Apple MDM APIs have been available since iOS 8. https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/Miscellaneous/Reference/MobileDeviceManagementProtocolRef/3-MDM_Protocol/MDM_Protocol.html
MDM can set the wallpaper for:
1. Lock Screen,
2. Home (icon list) screen,
3. Lock and Home screens.
In iOS 9 Apple introduced the MDM ability to restrict the user from modifying wallpaper. Key allowWallpaperModification (default=true)
Note to all users: Keep commenting on this until we get an update. Thanks
Any updates on this feature?
Bump - We have over 1400 devices and growing - if we are to switch from AW then this should be priority.

An update from the PG would be good. While not technically functional, it provides a sense of ownership/branding and professionalism to our users (and especially senior leadership of a business unit). The omission of this one feature is making Intune look like a half baked solution, even though it is just icing on the managed device for us.
