    Question for those using an MDM with Single App mode pushed to devices on iOS 7. I am using AirWatch, but not sure if the issue I'm seeing is related to AirWatch or is it a general Apple restriction?

    Is there any way to update an app in single app mode automatically? When I try to load a new app version, nothing happens on the device if it is locked to that app. When I then remove the Single App Mode profile in the AirWatch console, a popup appears asking the user to either allow the update or cancel - it still does not automatically kick off the app update.

    I am looking for a way to update the app without any end user interaction needed and minimal management on the admin side (i.e. not have to remove the single app mode profile).

    Any progress

    I'm in a similar situation, did you ever find a workaround?
