Is there a way to setup a device as managed or whatever in order to put owner information on the lock screen without wiping the whole phone? Or, can you at least restore from a prior/unrelated backup afterward?

  • Not a direct answer to your question, but this is how I make sure my Emergency info is legible even to people who don't know how to access the 'proper' emergency info on an iPhone - apple.stackexchange.com/questions/246252/… – Tetsujin Oct 24 '16 at 18:41
  • I've done that before, but it doesn't work well with Parallax. There's a built-in way using iOS 10, but it requires provisioning/managed device configuration. – Ben Guild Oct 24 '16 at 19:18
  • A bit of trial & error was all it took to make mine 'parallax-safe'. A dark vignette helped too. – Tetsujin Oct 24 '16 at 19:21

Why wouldn't you just add the owner information to whatever wallpaper image you're using? There's no need for an overly technical solution.

  • Because there is a clean, built-in way to do it that's better designed. However it requires setting up in advance. – Ben Guild Oct 25 '16 at 5:40
