- To use iPad with your work accounts, you need to know the settings your organization requires. If you received your iPad from your organization, the settings and apps you need might already be installed. If it's your own iPad, your system administrator may provide you with the settings for you to enter, or they may have you connect to a mobile device management server that installs the settings and apps you should have.
- Organizational settings and accounts are typically in configuration profiles. You might be asked to install a configuration profile that was sent to you in an email, or one that you need to download from a webpage. When you open the file, iPad asks for your permission to install the profile, and displays information about what it contains.
In most cases, when you install a configuration profile that sets up an account for you, some iPad settings can't be changed. For example, your organization might turn on
- Auto-Lock and require you to set a passcode in order to protect the information in the accounts you access.
- You can see your profiles in Settings > General > Profiles. If you delete a profile, all of the settings and accounts associated with the profile are also removed, including any custom apps your organization provided or had you download. If you need a passcode to remove a profile, contact your system administrator.
- A VPN (virtual private network) provides secure access over the Internet to private resources, such as your organization's network. You may need to install a VPN app from the App Store that configures your iPad to access a particular network. Contact your system administrator for information about any apps and settings you need.
- In addition to the built-in apps and the ones you get from the App Store, your organization may want you to have certain other apps. They might provide you with a pre-paid redemption code for the App Store. When you download an app using a redemption code, you own it, even though your organization purchased it for you.
