Please Note: If the iPad passcode is entered incorrectly too many times, you will see the “iPad is disabled” message on the screen. When you see this message, your only option is to wipe the iPad and restore from backup. This is a security feature designed to keep your data safe in case of theft. We are finding that external keyboards left on in backpacks are accidentally typing the passcodes over and over until the iPad is disabled. We recommend that the keboard be turned off when not using the ipad to avoid this situation. Click here for directions on how to restore your disabled iPad.
