I will be preparing some iBook files to use on an exhibit in a museum, and I am afraid that visitors accidentally (or not) delete the book from the iBooks app.

I looked at the Restriction Settings, but I didn't find anything that could help me.

Is it possible to do that?

SettingsGeneral → scroll down → RestrictionsEnable Restrictions → create passcode and enter it again when prompted → write it down somewhere → toggle Deleting Apps to OFF.

  • Thanks, I will test it later. So by disabling app deletion I can also disable content deletion?

Try this, setup Guide Access on your iPad and you activate the feature to block certain parts of the App, called "blind spots." See instructions here: How to Use Guided Access to Disable Parts of an iPad Screen

I hope this helps.
