Fix: This iPad is Supervised by Another Computer and Cannot Be Used with This Computer
A company will purchase Apple products including iPhones, iPads, iPods, or Apple TV’s and place restrictions on them so a user cannot do certain things with the device. This is typically known as a management profile. Even if you decide to reset or erase the device (General -> Reset – Reset All Settings) the device will only be wiped to the company restrictions and policy it was originally imaged with. Luckily, there is an easy solution to break and erase a company restricted iPad or iDevice.
To erase and start from scratch on a supervised iPad, follow these steps.
Place the iPad or iDevice into Recovery Mode. Follow these steps:
1. Turn off the iPad
2. Hold down the home button while you plug in the charging cable. The charging cable should be plugged into a computer.
3. When the device powers on, it should open in iTunes on your machine. From here, you can set the device up as a new iPad and wipe it completely.
Enjoy your new device!
