I have looked and looked and I can't find a solution. I need to get to the profiles and device management section on my ipad 3 but it is not under general. I tried searching for it in settings and it shows up as an option. I tap on it and it just opens General, where there is no option for profiles and device management. Please help, I already tried restarting the device.

How can I find it?

  • And, your question is?

    Weird, it shows up for me on my iPhone 6s running iOS 9.2. Right there under General. Apple did apparently changed the name from Profiles to Device Management in iOS 9.2, though. Commented Dec 26, 2015 at 23:44

    Thebro21, My question is how do I find it. I thought it would have been implied given the simplicity of my post.Sorry about that, my bad.

    I too have this problem. The option is not there. Is there an event that needs to occur in order to have it show up? It's an iPhone 5 with iOS 9.3.1.

This option will not be displayed if you do not have an installed profile. You don't actually install profiles from the settings. Profiles can be installed through different channels, whether it be an email invitation or a website. The only reason profiles show up in settings is so you can manage/delete them easily. Before I had profiles, I didn't have the settings option to manage them.
