Your Managed iPad

Set Up Your Apple ID

Your iPad was pre-configured with a collection of recommended apps for engagement, but you also have the option of adding additional apps from the App Store.

Prior to adding apps, you must sign into the App Store via an Apple ID account. If you are already using an Apple ID account to manage your iTunes library, we recommend using the same account on the community iPad.

If you have more than one community iPad, we recommended using the same Apple ID and password across all your community owned devices (there is a limit of 10 devices per Apple account). By using the same Apple account, iTunes and App Store purchases will be available across all your devices.

Two-Factor Authentication

You may be prompted to turn on two-factor authentication. This is an optional feature that allows you to connect an authorized device (such as a mobile phone) to your Apple ID account.

With two-factor authentication turned on, to sign into new devices or service, not only do you need the account user name / password, but you also need physical access to the authorized device.

While two-factor authentication adds extra security, it can be challenging to manage on community shared devices. If you decide to turn it on, make sure that key staff will have access to the authorized device, if needed.
