Administers piloting the iPad in education have noticed that the recent upgrade from iOS 6 to iOS 7 has caused some significant issues. Admins reported that provisioning profiles, which are inputted into the operating system and allow for restrictions and non-app store apps, were taken off the students’ iPads when they upgraded to iOS 7.
This latest development comes after students in the LA school district discovered that by removing provisioning profiles from the Settings app will limit restrictions. Provisioning profiles are mainly installed to allow usage of the Self-Service web app and likit restrictions of app downloads
Apple has said that it will address this issue within the next month.
