Allow Dictionary Lookup Restriction


Hi everyone,

We are using iPads in exams for word processing, as we are a 1:1 iPad school. For various reasons, we now need to restrict the "Define" function which appears in Jamf School as "Allow Dictionary Lookup". We have disabled this however it still seems to work! I've looked at all other restrictions and have locked it all down as much as possible, but without disabling WiFi completely I can't find a way of turning off the dictionaries and preventing them from being downloaded again.

Has anyone else come across this/resolved this? Using Jamf School, and on iPadOS 16.3 onwards.

Hi there, Stephen.

Can you confirm if the device is supervised?
