Setting Up Your iPad – RU-N Information Technology Skip to main content

We recommend that Rutgers manages your device for the best experience. However, the management profile can be removed if desired.

With a managed device, Rutgers can push applications, notifications, and settings to your iPad; see titles of installed apps; publish a custom app library; and—if you lose your iPad—Rutgers can locate, lock, or erase your device.
