Migration of Managed AppleID data to personal AppleID

New Contributor II

I have a teacher retiring and they want to take the MAID data from their school iPad with them. They bought a new iPad, they backed up the school iPad to their MAID, we logged in with the MAID, restored the MAID backup to the new iPad. I was going to have them logout of the MAID on the new iPad, login with their personal AppleID and do a backup. When they were going to logout with the MAID, it did not ask about leaving a copies of data on the iPad, but said it would remove the data, but it would be available in iCloud.

I would have sworn I've been asked to select what data I wanted to keep on an iPad, with the green switches, when logging out with a MAID. Normally, I don't want to retain the data, so never selected the switches.

Maybe I'm going about this wrong? Any suggestions migrate and keep the MAID data on the new iPad, and start using only the personal AppleID?



I don't think I'm surprised by this, because technically the MAID data is owned by the organisation and not the individual using the account. These are essentially corporate accounts, just like those generated by Active Directory.

That said, there is a section in Apple School Manager relating to data and privacy access, with a link: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT208501 Also, there is a section here on transferring data held with Apple https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT208502

I hope that points you in the right direction!
