A new reveal shows Apple's iPad management profile policies that are available to corporate users provide the ability to disable use of its camera. This would provide some additional credibility about a camera being a part of future models, according to AppleInsider.
The configuration profile tools for iOS devices included a wide variety of settings and restrictions as far as what companies can impose to regulate how the units are used and to configure services like VPN, wireless networking access, email, calendar as well as directory services.
Some policies can also maintain strong passwords, as well other features such as how many times a password attempt can not go through until the device wipes the device clean of its data. Other policy settings are able to restrict access to other features like the iTunes Store, Safari, YouTube, or even the use of the camera.
Granted, iPhones currently have cameras to disable, and no current iPad model does. But, amongst the profiles in the iPad documentation, Apple does make mention of the possibility of restricting camera use on the iPad.
