    Exclamation Disable Bluetooth on iPads

    Good Morning.

    We have a class set of iPads here managed via Apple Configurator.

    I have found out that some of the pupils are connecting the iPads to there phones via Bluetooth and using their mobile data to access the internet.

    Has anyone else come across this problem. Is there a way to disable Bluetooth?

    I have had a quick google but cant find much.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Could you lock down the system settings so they can't get to the option as I don't think it is possible to disable the bluetooth.

    Sorry if this is unhelpful

    Use a global proxy so that it goes through the proxy and the pupils can't change it.

    I've not yet found a way to disable Bluetooth completely as it's available from the swipe-up menu along with the wifi, airplane mode etc.

    I really wish Apple would let me lock down the wallpaper, lock screen, prevent a passcode being able to be set etc. but with the iPad designed to be a personal device they don't care about settings that only affect mulitple users

    I have just set up the global proxy but I cant test it as Vodafone are having network issues.
