AIOS-12-008900 - Apple iOS must implement the management setting: remove managed applications upon unenrollment from MDM.

Information

When a device is unenrolled from MDM, it is possible to relax the security policies that the MDM had implemented on the device. This may cause apps and data to be more vulnerable than they were prior to enrollment. Removing managed apps (and consequently the data they maintain) upon unenrollment mitigates this risk because on appropriately configured Apple iOS devices, DoD-sensitive information exists only within managed apps.
