Ipad 2 is asking for apple id after restoring

I work for a school and we handed out several ipad 2 ,3 and airs over the years. It has come to my attention that I cannot go into recovery mode and restore an ipad any longer with out it asking for an apple id after restored. The problem is that several if not all are asking for staffs own apple ids. Is their a way to change this or can apple change this for me. Our school has purchased all of these from apple. The other big question is how did their ID become paired up with that ipad?

Hi bgs47,
Thank you for participating in the Apple Support Communities.
It sounds like iPads that have been restored are prompting for the previous user's Apple ID. This feature is called Activation Lock, and occurs when the user has signed in to the device with their iCloud account and turned on Find my iPhone:
With iOS 7 or later, Find My iPhone includes a feature called Activation Lock, which is turned on automatically when you set up Find My iPhone. Activation Lock makes it harder for anyone to use or sell your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch if it’s ever lost or stolen.
With Activation Lock, your Apple ID and password are required before anyone can:
Turn off Find My iPhone on your device
Sign out of iCloud on your device
Erase and reactivate your device
From:
iCloud: Activation Lock
If the user is not available to enter their information into the device, they can remove it from their iCloud account by following these steps:
Contact the previous owner and ask them to follow these steps to remove the device from their account:
Sign in to their iCloud account at www.icloud.com/find.
Click All Devices to open a list of devices linked to their account, then select the device to be removed. It should show a gray dot or the word “Offline” next to the device name.
Click "Remove from Account" to remove the device from their account.
After the device is removed from the previous owner’s account, turn the device off by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button located on the top-right side of the device. Then restart your device and proceed with device setup as you would normally.
You can find these steps and more information about Activation Lock here:

Best Regards,
Jeremy

    Hi there Mullin1!
    I have a couple of articles here that can help you troubleshoot and resolve this issue. This first article will help walk you through some basic troubleshooting steps for FaceTime, and it can be found here:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts3367
    After going through those steps, if you are still having issues with your Wi-Fi connection, then you will want to reference the further steps located in this article:

  • HT1349 Why does iPhone ask for apple password after rebooting?

    Why does iPhone ask for apple password after rebooting? It just started to do that recently. I've had iPhone5 for several months now and it just started to do that.
    Before I could reboot without having to type apple ID password to start using my phone.

    Could be part of Apple's new security procedures that were implemented this past week.

  • HT201263 my ipad is still asking for the passcode while restoring and its dispalying and an error message

    my ipad is still asking for the passcode while restoring and its dispalying and an error message. what should i do because i cant acess my ipad anymore. someone help me.

    Try and force iPad into Recovery Mode
    1. Disconnect the USB cable from the device, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
    2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.
    3.While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to the device. The device should turn on.
    4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears, release the Home button. iTunes should alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode. Click OK, and then click Restore to restore the device.
    Note: Data will be lost. You may have to repeat the above many times.

  • IPad is frequently asking for Apple ID

    My wife's iPad has suddenly started asking for her Apple ID almost everytime she uses it...especially after charging it.  How do we eliminate this?

    I would try rebooting the iPad and see if that fixes it.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.
    If that doesn't work, have her sign out in Settings>iTunes and App stores>Apple ID. Tap the ID and then tap sign out. Restart the iPad, sign in again and see how it goes.

  • IPad 2 constantly asks for Apple ID

    My iPad constantly asks for my Apple ID.  It started doing this after I updated to 5.0.1. Also, it seems random.

    that is for extra security
    in case if you lose your device, whoever is using it cannot misuse your apple id
    as it will keep prompting for password

    We are fellow users here on these forums, you're not talking to iTunes Support nor Apple. I don't know where you originally posted this question, but it's only just appeared in the Using iPad forum.
    If you can't remember your password then you can reset it via http://iforgot.apple.com
    If you can't get it reset via that site then you will have to contact Support in your country, they should be able to reset it for you (they can also reset your security questions if you've forgotten their answers).

  • IPad startup asks for apple id that is an email

    iPad startup asks for apple id that is an email but my existing apple id is not an email address.  When I try to change my existing apple id to my email, the system won't change it so I'm stuck.  I can't complete the iPad startup without entering my apple id but I can't change it to an email address like the iPad expects.  Any suggestions?

    To be honest i'm not sure but i think the apple id is always an email address and you can't use anything else try putting @me.com after the apple id you have

    i updated my ipad to ios 8 and now my ipad is locked asking for activation when i put it doesnt accept my apple id do you have a solution?

    Did you by this iPad new? Or used? If it was a used iPad, you'll need the Apple ID login for the original owner. If you bought it new, contact AppleCare with proof that you are the original owner and they may be able to help you.

  • I want to get a new app for my ipad , but it first asked for apple ID and then asked for verify payment, what should i do?

    I want to get a new app for my ipad , but it first asked for apple ID and then asked for verify payment, what should i do?

    The iTunes Store needs the 3-digit security code from your credit card on the account.  The iPad will display the account information so you can enter this information.  Once you enter the information, purchase the app and it will download.  Sounds like the Apple ID and payment information is not yours (your parents), so discuss this with the account holder.

  • Just updated my iPhone 5s from ios 8.1 to 8.3. After the install it asked for Apple ID and password and to allow it to sync to Mac and iTunes. After following the steps my phone kept restarting - turning on and off and goes blank. How do I fix this??

    I have had about 9 iOS devices at work do this. 
    The fix and it will wipe out anything on your iphone is to connect it to your computer and have the latest version on iTunes open.  Hold the Power/Sleep and Home button till it blanks out.  Keep holding the home button untill it says recovery mode on the screen of the computer and do a restore.
