Setup Assistant panes in Apple TV devices
You can control which Setup Assistant panes users see when they plug in an Apple TV. For example, if supervised Apple TV devices are enrolled in a mobile device management (MDM) solution and managed by Apple School Manager or Apple Business Manager, you can probably use the options below to prevent them from initially configuring those devices. (Consult your MDM vendor’s documentation to learn which Setup Assistant panes they support hiding from the user during setup.)
Important: All options in Setup Assistant can be configured later by the user unless you permanently restrict these features using your MDM solution with a restrictions payload in a configuration profile on the device.
