    I have a an iOS Profile Management Admin tool in which I can set passcode restrictions.

    My question is, is the ALLOW SIMPLE VALUE the same as using SIMPLE PASSCODE on the iPhone/iPad device itself?

    In other words, if I Uncheck the ALLOW SIMPLE VALUE from the Profile Management Tool, will that disable SIMPLE PASSCODE on the iOS/iPhone/iPad device?

    Are these values the same thing or different?

    Thanks

    The descriptions in your graphic seem to indicate something a little different than Apple's definition of a simple passcode which is 4 digits..

    Simple passcode on the iphone means only 4-numeric digits. Am I wrong?

    That is correct.

    Yes, but based on the screenshot that was included "simple value" seems to refer to something different than simple passcode (meaning that it seems that "simple value" and "simple passcode" are not the same things).

    Simple value seems to refer to the passcode itself, while simple passcode refers to the ability to enter a 4 digit passcode, of which there 10,000 possibilities. Seems that allowing simple password and disabling simple value will disallow passwords such as: 1234, 1111, 4321, 2222 etc.
