NHS iPads – reset to factory settings on 1st July 2022

During the pandemic NHSX gifted iPads to care homes so that staff could access remote health consultations and wellbeing services for the people in their care, and to help keep residents connected to their loved ones.

On 1st July 2022 when you switch your iPad on it will behave as if the device was brand new out of the box. All information on the iPad will be deleted. That means that information and applications are deleted, they are not kept anywhere and are not recoverable.

This will include any photos or documents downloaded and saved on the device. Unless you have purchased a new Mobile Device Management (MDM) contract or have made alternative arrangements, your iPad will reset to factory settings.
