How can I tell if I have a blacklisted app installed on my iPad? (Updated)
This is a note for students who have MISD iPads and their parents.
The PowerUp! project is off to a promising start! The students and staff at Lake Ridge and Mansfield High Schools have been great!
Some students have installed apps that are blacklisted. Because students are getting used to new devices and policies, the system is set to provide a series of warnings before locking the App Store.
On a couple of devices, there have been changes made to AirWatch that have required a technician to fix. This has resulted in extended and unnecessary downtime.
Of the small number of devices that were out of compliance yesterday, 75% of them were free of blacklisted apps and back in compliance today.
Let’s get the rest in compliance now to avoid unnecessary downtime.
- The blacklisted apps are listed on http://edtech.mansfieldisd.org. You can check that list against the your installed apps and just remove anything that shouldn’t be there.
- Once all blacklisted apps are uninstalled and the device is checked by the AirWatch server, App Store functions should be restored.
