Am currently trying to restrict our users from accessing the Apple ID Banner at the top of the settings so they can't log out of the iCloud email. Do not see the setting anywhere and was hoping if this is possible. Another tech said they were able to but forgot where the setting was. I've spent hours trying to locate the setting but see it nowhere in the policy settings.
Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks for reaching out to the Sophos Community Forum.
Please allow me some time to inquire further about this. I will update you on this thread.
The Apple ID banner in settings on my new iPhone XS has been grayed out and unresponsive since setting it up last month. Apps, notes, mail, etc are syncing fine. I’m puzzled. Any ideas?
Any updates on this? Am still trying to get this to be inaccessible as it is a security vulnerability.
There might be restrictions set up on your device, so tap Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy > scroll to Allow Changes, and check to see if Account changes are allowed. If not, enable them and check to see if your Apple ID is no longer grey.

Darrel Mills, this may also be preventing you from changing your settings, if your device was enrolled via Apple Business Manager.
