Granting required iOS/iPadOS permissions

Depending on your kiosk project, Kiosk Pro may require permission to use an iOS/iPadOS features on your device.  Permissions it may ask for include:

  • Bluetooth - used to communicate with thermal kiosk printers, card readers, and/or other Bluetooth peripherals
  • Device camera - used to take pictures and video and/or to scan barcodes through the JavaScript API
  • Location data - allows access to the coordinates of the device through our JavaScript API
  • Microphone - used to record audio for video, for touchless voice controls, and/or to communicate with peripherals that connect through the audio jack.
  • Accelerometer - used to detect when the iPad is physically moved for reporting and/or notifications
  • Photo library - used to upload images from your library or store new images if you are not using Kiosk Pro's JavaScript API

The first time Kiosk Pro needs to use an iOS feature a window will appear on-screen asking if the app can have permission.  

Touching "OK" will dismiss the window and you will be able to continue navigating your content. If "Don't Allow" is pressed, the feature will not be accessible.

Note that there is currently a known issue if the device is in Guided Access, Single App Mode, or Autonomous Single App Mode the first time a permission request is prompted - more on this here.  Specific restrictions can also be placed on a device that would prevent the permission request from being shown. 

If "Don't Allow" was chosen accidentally, you can change which apps have permission to iOS features in the device settings under the Privacy section.
