Overview: What are Managed Apple IDs (MAIDs)?

Like any Apple ID, Managed Apple IDs are used to sign in to a Blake school-owned device or Blake Shared iPad device.

They are also used to access Apple services—including iCloud and iTunes U courses—and Apple School Manager. Unlike Apple IDs, Managed Apple IDs are owned and managed by your school or district and are designed to meet the needs of education institutions—including passcode resets, limitations on communications, and role-based administration.
