When the key ‘whitelistedAppBundleIDs’ is defined in a Restrictions payload ( and installed to a device, the device can no longer add a Google account under Settings > Accounts & Passwords. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a restrictions payload to an iOS device with whitelistedAppBundleIDs defined to your choosing. We used one that whitelisted Apple Mail, Contacts, Calendar, and Notes.
2. Go to Settings > Accounts & Passwords > Add Account
3. Select “Google”. Provide accurate u/p credentials and optionally a 2FA token.
4. iOS returns user to the “Add Account” screen and does not add the account.

Expected Results:
Step 4 should prompt the user to choose which aspects of their Google account they would like to sync, such as Mail, Contacts, Calendar, and Notes

Actual Results:
See step 4. 


No error is produced on screen or from the console in Xcode when device is connected via lightning cable.
