App Lock

App lock policies lock a device to a single application. The app lock policy disables the home button and forces the device to return to the application upon a wake up or reboot. App Store and MDM apps can be added to the App Lock policy.

Note: This policy only works on supervised devices.

Note:If App lock is not present then the other restrictions/options will not be applied. This is how Apple designed it.
