How to Remove MDM from iPhone/iPad With or Without Password

The presence of a management profile or MDM on an iOS device indicates that the iPhone or iPad is centrally controlled by an organization, an enterprise, or an educational establishment. With the MDM, users are restricted to certain functions and cannot access the full features. This guide explains how to remove Remote Management from an iPad or iPhone with or without a password.

Remove Remote Management from Your iPhone

Part 1: What Is Remote Management on iPad/iPhone

Remote Management, or Mobile Device Management, also known as MDM, is a way used by organizations to manage devices issued to their members. MDM enables IT administrators to limit the functionalities of usage of members' devices. With MDM, the administrator can set up email and network accounts, install and configure apps, and manage settings on iPhones and iPads.

The purpose is to prevent members from using their devices for personal use. MDM is a part of the Apple Platform Deployment program, which allows organizations to deploy and control Apple hardware, software, and services. If you get or purchase an iOS device from an organization, chances are that your iPhone or iPad is locked by MDM.

Can you remove Remote Management on an iPad after restoring? No. MDM is the top-level control and it is above all other features. Erasing or restoring your iPad won't remove remote management. Officially, you can only remove MDM with a password. Follow the steps below:

Remove MDM Password

Step 1 Open the Settings app from your home screen.

Step 2 Tap the General option, and choose the VPN & Device Management entry.

Step 3 You will see an option for an MDM profile. Tap on the profile, and press the Remove Management button at the bottom.

Can you factory reset an iPad that is supervised?

Yes, you can reset and restore an iPad that is supervised. However, it won't bring your device to the factory status. The device will go back to the status that the administrator deployed at first. In other words, factory reset won't let you get rid of the supervision on your iPad. To remove the control, you need a password.
