AIOS-11-080203 - Apple iOS must implement the management setting: force Apple Watch wrist detection.


Because Apple Watch is a personal device, it is key that any sensitive DoD data displayed on the Apple Watch not be viewable when the watch is not in the immediate possession of the user. This control ensures the Apple Watch screen locks when the user takes the watch off, thereby protecting sensitive DoD data from possible exposure.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Install a configuration profile to force Apple Watch wrist detection.
