  • For Apple User Enrollment devices, you can’t see personal apps, that is, apps installed using the user’s personal Apple ID.

  • For iPhones and iPads, you can uninstall apps marked as Managed silently, that is, without user interaction.
  • For Macs, apps from all user accounts are listed.

Apps pending installation

For Android Enterprise devices, there’s an Apps pending installation section on the Installed apps tab. The section shows the installation status of Managed Google Play apps.

Installing a Managed Google Play app on an Android Enterprise device involves the following steps:

  1. You run the Install command on the Apps - Android Enterprise page in Sophos Mobile.
  2. Sophos Mobile sends an installation request to a Google server.
  3. Google installs the app on the device.

Based on these steps, the installation status of an app can be one of the following:

  • Installation request to be sent to Google: You’ve run the Install command.
  • Installation request sent to Google: Sophos Mobile has sent the installation request to Google.

When Google has installed the app, Sophos Mobile moves it from Apps pending installation to Installed apps.

For information on installing managed Google Play apps, see Install managed Google Play app.

For app installation issues, see Troubleshooting.
