Are you looking for a way to circumvent the restrictions placed on your school issued iPad? If so, it's unlikely you will find any help here.

Guided access in iOS6 ? Allows to lock the ipad to a certain app and restrict the use of screen, home and sleep button..

Hi and welcome to iPF Brian. I for sure wouldn't want to tamper with someone else's property if they have loaned it to me.

If the school owns the AppleID associated with the iPad, you can't download any apps onto it without the password, and if you have the password, they'll know because they'll be paying the bill. If you own the AppleID then you can, and you can delete the apps before giving it back so they won't know. It's pretty well as simple as that.

*** ? How can I download apps on this iPad from school ?

Hi and welcome to the Forum!

As you can see above, there are quite a few ethical and moral issues at stake with something like this. If the School owns this iPad and it is loaned to you to help you in your studies, then it just wouldn't be the right thing for you to be doing. Downloading other apps will not only take you away from your studies but add to the chance of a mishap with your iPad which is a very expensive device.

If the School has set Restrictions and I would assume they have, then you cannot bypass this without the School being aware of it.

You're very lucky to have a device like this to help you!
