how to create an iPad profile

Read Before Starting

In the vast majority of cases, you will not need to follow all these steps. The iPads are probably already configured with the right apps, profiles, etc. You need only to wipe the contents of the iPads and they'll be ready to go for the next users. Just in case you need to start from scratch, though, all the steps are here.

DISCLAIMER: It is a non-trivial task to get all the iPads re-configured from scratch. You will need to manually enter some information on each iPad. Proceed with caution.

Creating a New Profile (not necessary if already created)

  1. Open Apple Configurator 2
  2. File -> New Profile
  3. Change name, description, transfer message etc. under General Settings
  4. In Restrictions, disable "Allow iMessage", "Allow iCloud Backup", "Allow iCloud documents & data", "Allow iCloud Photo Sharing", "Allow iCloud Photo Library", "Allow My Photo Stream", "Allow modifying passcode"
  5. In Wifi, type in "wahoo" and check "Hidden Network"
  6. File -> Save
