How can you disable Live Photos for iOS devivces from Systems Manager?
I have users that will be using a supervised iPad to take photos, and they will be transferring them to their desktop through USB. Live Photos are enabled by default, and they show up in the DCIM directory of the iPad as a .MOV file for each photo.
My users arent interested in the Live functionality, so it just adds extra noise that they need to parse through to locate the photos they're looking for, and additionally it complicates the copy-paste process, since they need to unselect the .MOV files.
So is there a way to disable Live photos completely?
I see I can disable it as a *default setting* by going to Settings > Camera > Preserve Settings > Live Photo, but I still need to go to the Camera app to disable it there, and my users can still accidentally re-enable it after that.

If it's not listed here, then it's not supported by Apple and therefore something that cannot be changed by Meraki.
The only option that we have regarding MDM and the camera is disabling it:
So, unfortunately, disabling Live Photos is not something MDM can change. You can submit feedback to Apple via this website. If they ever implement this, you can be sure Meraki will allow this too 😀. If the main headache is that users have to deselect the .mov files, maybe search the folder for the .heic or .jpg files and then the .mov's will be hidden. Live Photos can come out awesomely too!
