AIOS-13-013100 - Apple iOS/iPadOS must implement the management setting: disable paired Apple Watch.


The STIG requires AO approval before an Apple Watch (DoD owned or personally owned) can be paired with a DoD owned iPhone to insure the AO has evaluated the risk in having sensitive DoD data transferred to and stored on an Apple Watch in their operational environment.


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


If the AO has not approved the use of Apple Watch with DoD owned iPhones, install a configuration profile to disable the Apple Watch control in the management tool. This a Supervised-only control.
