For each description file, IT House will also give a specific usage method below.

2. What is the description file?

The profile of iOS is actually a setting file in the system, which is essentially an XML file. With the help of the profile, we can load the information that has been set and authorized to Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV and Mac computers). Settings and authorization information include: device security policies and access restrictions, private network configuration, Wi-Fi settings, mail and calendar accounts, etc.

3. How to use the description file? Description file usage tutorial

The following is the specific usage method of each description file:

1. Installation and use of the developer preview version and public beta version description file:

In fact, the official version of iOS should be a relatively stable and safe system version, but driven by curiosity and thirst for knowledge, many users still hope to experience the latest features in the first time, so at this time the updated developer preview version should be a Good choice. Apple has prepared a Beta system for developers so that they can experience and feedback in the first time. Normally, they need to register on the developer website to receive the relevant description file, but the description file can be extracted and disseminated, so it is not a development Users can update as long as they download the description file.

iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and other devices can experience the latest Beta system after downloading the description file. We need to remind everyone that this description file will continue to receive the latest Beta system push, and you don’t need it when a new Beta system appears. Then download other description files (equivalent to authentication of the developer’s identity).

Steps for usage:

① Use the Safari browser to open the download address of the description file (see the top of the article)

② Select “Allow” in the pop-up dialog box.

③ Click “Install” in the upper right corner, then enter the password, click “Install” in the following dialog boxes, and finally restart the device.

④ After the device restarts, select “General” in the setting interface, and then enter “Software Update”, you can detect the latest update prompt of the iOS11 developer preview version.

2. Completely shield the description file usage tutorial of iOS update check:

Is it annoying for iOS to check for updates? I believe that many people will encounter such troubles. The performance of their devices is not enough to run the latest version of iOS (or are used to the current system version), but they will still receive update requests continuously. One accidentally makes a mistake. After using it, I feel that I don’t want to use this phone anymore. For example, an iPhone 5S before the editor, saw that my friends around me started to freeze after updating iOS 10 and iOS 11, so I gave up the idea of ​​updating.

The following is a little trick to block the update through the description file. In fact, the principle is very simple, which is to install the Apple TV Beta system description file on the iPhone.

Because iPhone/iPad and Apple TV have the same description file format, but after installation, iPhone/iPad will not receive the original iOS update because of the Apple TV description file when checking for updates. Of course, you don’t need to worry. , Your iPhone will not download Apple TV update files.

Steps for usage:

① Use the Safari browser to open the download address of the description file (see the top of the article)

② Select “Allow” in the pop-up dialog box.

② Go to the settings interface, click Install in the upper right corner, then enter the unlock password, continue to click Install, and restart the phone according to the prompts.

③ After the installation is complete, a Feedback software will appear on the system desktop (developer feedback and use), just put it directly into a folder that is not commonly used, and you will not receive any system update requests in the future, right? Very refreshing?

Deletion method:

If you want to restore it to the original state, it’s easy, just go to Settings -> General -> Profile and Device Management, open “tvOS 11 beta Software Profile” and delete it.

It should be noted that the expiration time of this description file is May 13, 2019, but don’t worry that we will update the latest file at that time. In addition, if you install the description file of the developer preview version, it will not have any effect. You can delete the description file of the developer preview version first, and then install the description file.

3. You can also DIY the description files you need

Because the official description files are very limited (mostly for update purposes), there are still relatively few general description files available to everyone . The more use of description files is for enterprise users to manage and set up devices in batches.

In addition, in the process of searching for the description file, I found a very interesting software: Apple Configurator 2 , this software contains a description file maker, you can do DIY design by yourself, you can combine the functions in the access restriction to generate you Unique description file. If you are an enterprise-level user who wants to manage dozens or hundreds of work devices (Mac, iPhone, iPad) at the same time, you can also manage them through Apple Configurator 2, which saves time and effort by injecting description files in batches.
