Schools say iOS 7 removed filters from student iPads

A number of schools across the U.S. have found that upgrading their student-used iPads to iOS 7 removed previous supervision profiles on the devices, AllThingsD reports. Losing the filters cleared any restrictions administrators put on the devices. Administrators also lost remote management privileges due to the upgrade. In response, some schools have changed network settings to stop iPads from updating to iOS 7. Apple is working toward a resolution. “Some business and education users have reported that their supervised devices have reverted to unsupervised when they upgrade to iOS 7,” Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller said. “We are aware of this issue, and will have a fix this month.”
