Users adding apps on your iPad? Enable restrictions

If users (students or children) are adding apps on an iPad try enabling restrictions. This will require you to add a passcode and then if you toggle the Installing Apps it will remove the App Store from appearing on the Ipad screen. Click here for a guide from Apple as well.
  • Settings Gear
  • General
  • Restrictions
    • Set/ enter passcode
    • Scroll down to Installing Apps and toggle to gray/off
  • The App Store will no longer appear

If you would like to add apps simply reverse the steps.
  • Settings Gear
  • General
  • Restrictions
    • Set/ enter passcode
    • Scroll down to Installing Apps and toggle to green/on
  • The App Store will now appear

Embedded below is a 1 minute YouTube tutorial I created.


Of course you could also just sign-out of your device as well (might be best idea if in a school setting). To sign out just select Settings > iTunes & App Store > Select Apple ID > Sign Out.

Any questions or tips you have please let me know!
