Site-Funded iPads and MDM Switch

The week of June 18, 2018, DTS will be switching to a new Mobile Device Management (MDM) system, called Jamf.

All non-LTP iPads purchased by school or department funds that are in our current MDM, LANRev, will be affected by this switch!

  • iPads that have not checked into LANRev since August 1, 2017
  • Personal devices (BYOD and staff) that have been enrolled into LANRev
  • Older devices that cannot be updated to the latest supported iOS version (currently iOS 11.3)
    • Click here to see a list of supported/unsupported devices.

ACTION NEEDED:

After the switch to the new MDM, any apps downloaded from the LANRev App Store may be removed from the iPad at some point, along with any data stored in the app itself. It’s imperative that important data be backed up before June 18th. (Besides, it’s a good idea to make regular backups anyway!) Click here for directions for backing up data from iPad apps.

If you wish to recycle older iPads that are no longer in use, please complete this work request to remove unwanted equipment.


iPads that WILL be moved over from LANRev to the new MDM:

  • District-owned iPads that have checked into LANRev at least once since August 1, 2017
  • Supported devices (click here to see a list) that can be updated to the latest supported iOS version (currently iOS 11.3)

ACTION NEEDED:

  1. Back up your data! After the switch to the new MDM, any apps downloaded from the LANRev App Store may be removed from the iPad at some point, along with any data stored in the app itself. It’s imperative that you back up any data you wish to save before June 18th. (Besides, it’s a good idea to make regular backups anyway!) Click here for directions for backing up data from iPad apps.
  2. Erase and re-enroll your iPad! After the MDM switch (but no earlier than June 25, 2018), you must erase the iPad and re-enroll it in the new MDM, Jamf.
    • Go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings to reset your iPad
    • After resetting, follow these directions for setting up and enrolling your iPad in the new MDM, Jamf.
