Most schools and colleges will give their students iPads to make it easier for them to share information.
But they also need to ensure that the iPads they give out are only used for school content and activities. This is why most school iPads will have an MDM (Mobile Device Management) Profile attached to them.
This profile lets the school keep track of how the iPad is used. This ensures that the data on the iPad stays safe and could even be used to wipe the iPad from a distance.
But these restrictions can make it hard for a student to use the device the way they want, which could make the student want to jailbreak the iPad to eliminate the restrictions.
Here, we’ll show you the exact steps you need to take to get the school iPad out of jail.
How Does MDM Work on the School iPad?
MDM Profile may be put on school iPads because teachers or the IT department want to keep track of how the device is used in and out of the classroom.
But besides using the iPad for schoolwork, students may use it for other, more personal things that they might not want their teachers to know about.
MDM is a way for teachers and the school’s IT department to keep track of what students are doing. Teachers can see what’s on a student’s iPad screen in real time, lock it from afar, send URLs to the iPad, or even mirror the screen.
This can make the iPad almost useless to a student, which is why many may look for ways to get rid of the restrictions that the MDM profiles put in place.
Why Should You Remove MDM First?
If you have graduated from the school but still need to use the device, you may need to remove the MDM profile.
If you buy a used iPad and find a profile set up by a school, you may need to remove the MDM profile. You might not be able to use the school iPad normally because of the MDM profile.
No matter your reason, the next section tells you how to get rid of an MDM profile from your device and jailbreak it.
How to Jailbreak the School iPad

But before we get to that, let’s start with what you need to do to get the device ready for jailbreaking.
Preparing Your iPad:
Follow the steps below to get your iPad ready for the jailbreaking process:
Back up your iPad

Step 1: Open the device’s Settings app and tap on your Apple ID at the top.
Step 2: Tap on “iCloud.”
Step 3: Tap “iCloud Backup” and “Back Up Now.”
Check Your iPad Model and iOS Version
How you jailbreak your iPad will depend on what kind of iPad you have and what version of iOS it is running. Before choosing a jailbreaking method, it is important to find out. Here’s what you need to do:
Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPad
Step 2: Tap “General.”
Step 3: Tap “About.”
Step 4: Take note of the entry next to “Version” and the “Model” entry.
