How to show Today+ on an iPad

 This article will give you a guide on how to show Today+ on an iPad. 

 

1. Download the AskCody Signage App
  • Go to the App Store on the iPad that you want to display your Today+ on, and download the "AskCody Signage" App.
    *The app named "AskCody" is an older version
 
2. Sign out off App Store
  • Open Settings
  • Choose "iTunes & App Store"
  • Click on your Apple ID
  • Choose “Sign Out”
  • The Apple ID is now empty

 

3. Disable Auto-Lock
  • Open Settings
  • Choose General
  • Choose Auto-lock
  • Click “never”
 
4. Set Brightness (Optional)
  • Open Settings
  • Choose Wallpapers & Brightness
  • Set brightness to maximum. Turn off “Auto-Brightness”

 

5. Setup Guided Access (optional)
Using Guided Access you limit the iPad to only view a single app (Today+). This will create a lockdown of the iPad while only displaying the Today+, so nobody can access the functions of the iPad unless you have a password. We recommend that you activate Guided Access.  
  • Open Settings
  • Choose General
  • Choose Accessibility
  • Click Guided Access
  • Click Guided Access on
  • Create Password
  • *Do not activate Guided Access yet 

OBS: In the current iOS version (v. 12.1) the iPad screen with guided access enabled will go black after approx. 20 minutes even though the sleep setting is set to never. Check out the link below for more information!
