Locking down iPad settings - am I missing something?
We're looking at introducing iPads for student use, but as far as I can see there is no way of blocking access to settings. I'm aware of the Restrictions menu and the iPhone configuration utility but these don't cover some of the important things.
The first/biggest problem is the passcode issue - either we set a password which then has to be entered every time before a student can use it, or we don't set one at all which then allows a student to come along and set one. Then the iPad requires a trip to my office to restore the backup.
The other problem is that even with restrictions set and regardless of whether or not a passcode is set, students can still go in and set airplane mode, change international settings, and just generally bugger things up for the next person who comes along.
Am I missing something or are you all constantly restoring backups of your iPads? How do you manage them in your school?
