SCCM On Premise MDM Should Support IOS Devices
Enabling MDM management of IOS devices on premise
For now, we will not add On-Prem management of IOS devices directly to ConfigMgr. We will continue to support and invest in win10. For IOS management, Intune will be the solution. Please add any comments to this User Voice item in Intune Uservoice:

You need to get a grip, your servers are extremely power hungry, hard to configure, licensing is downright abusive and whenever the customers give you a little leeway you take advantage and under the table impose locks; like don't playing nice with third-parties to get us to buy more from you, like the million and one SQL Server licenses you demand per user per service when other databases could also do the job and much more efficiently. If users want to run that chaos of servers be grateful and let them. That constant push for the cloud is not for a better world as you keep repeating on the website and in conferences, if that were true the people at HQ let users do they cloud thing on their *own* clouds, no need for Azure & 365. 😒

has there been any traction on this? We are looking at changing our MDM solution from BES with BB's to something else and I am really trying to push Exchange On Prem and SCCM.

I know clients that have to maintain their own datacentres and need a tight grip on all devices. Intune subscriptions are a pain and public cloud. When you are already forking out for a tool that is billed as 'TOP TIER'! you expect to manage at least all the top 5 brands of devices. I think native Android, iOS support is mandatory these days. MDM and MAM. If you can then tie this in with Direct access somehow. That would be awesome!

Will we continue to see on-prem MDM features enhanced, specifically for iOS? Intune requires an inconsistent monthly subscription that is not feasible for schools that budget so carefully. Our finance dept will not allow monthly subscriptions like this. With that said, I know it would save us money and make my job much easier by having robust on-prem support for iOS (and other platforms), such as configuring home screen layouts, and integration of ADEP, School Manager, VPP, and more of Apple's services. Right now I use HEAT LANrev to manage our iOS devices but I would love to use SCCM and obtain that single pane of glass console for management of all devices in our district.

Yes, we could do with something like this to put our IOS devices into supervised mode and enable/disable features natively in SCCM without Apple Configurators etc.
