iOS 9.3 will bring some new mobile device management capabilities, letting employers enforce homescreen layouts, black/whitelist apps, and enforce notification settings, notes developer Steven Troughton-Smith.

Apple's Configuration Profile Reference provides some more details...

The Home Screen Layout Payload is designated by specifying com.apple.homescreenlayout as the PayloadType value. It can contain only one payload, which must be supervised. It is supported on the User Channel. This payload defines a layout of apps, folders, and web clips for the Home screen. It is supported on iOS 9.3 and later.

The documentation also reveals that there are four new restriction payload keys, letting management disable iTunes Radio, blacklist apps, whitelist apps, and lock notification settings.

● allowRadioService (Boolean) - Supervised only. If set to false, iTunes Radio is disabled. Defaults to true. Availability: Available in iOS 9.3 and later.
● blacklistedApp (BundleIDs, Array of strings) - Supervised only. If present, prevents bundle IDs listed in the array from being shown or launchable. Availability: Available in iOS 9.3 and later.
● whitelistedApp (BundleIDs, Array of strings) - Supervised only. If present, allows only bundle IDs listed in the array from being shown or launchable. Availability: Available in iOS 9.3 and later.
● allowNotifications (Boolean) - Supervised only. If set to false, notification settings cannot be modified. Defaults to true. Availability: Available in iOS 9.3 and later.

iOS 9.3 adds numerous new features to Apple's mobile operating system including: Night Shift, secure Notes, more personalized News, an improved Health app, updates to CarPlay, and new Education features. More details on those features here.
