    Default Is there a way to force install apps on a MDM school ipad?

    Last year my school district gave out an iPad Air to every student. In the terms and conditions document, it specifies that at some point in the future they will filter and include the App Store, so that we can download apps + games. However, this date is yet to come, and I would like to try out certain apps I've already purchased. I have tried to use iTunes but it says permission error, and the same with iFunBox. So basically, is there a way I can use my windows PC to force install a .ipa onto the iPad??

    Um... no one.

    Read this for an explanation of MDM. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_device_management

    To the OP, you are going to need to get with your administrator to install apps.

    Seems complicated. Things at schools sure became complicated since I was attending classes.

    If you download Cydia Impactor. You can also download ipa files of the apps you want just by Google searching it. You can use Cydia Impactor to put it on your iPad

    An iOS device that is being administered using Apple's configurator suite, has a configuration profile that most likely will reinstall and revert the iPad to it's configured state. There isn't much Cydia Impactor can do, besides bricking the iPad. The easier thing to do would be to buy your own iPad and jail break that.
