Sidecar and/or Universal Control with managed Apple IDs

Question:

Does anyone know if Sidecar and/or Universal Control should work with managed Apple ID under macOS 13 and iPadOS 16.1? My 9th gen iPad does appear as an option for Sidecar, but when I select it my MacBook Air reports "The iCloud account does not use two-factor authentication" (even though it does). The same is true if I try to use Universal Control.

I have the same issue, trying to connect my school MBA to my 11 inch iPad Pro. Both using the same school managed Apple ID. It's odd, as I had to use 2FA to log in to this website! The authentication text went to my phone.

At one point I was told by an Apple employee that Apple Managed ID's do not support Sidecar.

I hope this has changed as we would love to use them for our staff as well as students - we have a number of teachers who have a M1 MacBook Air and an iPad.

Hello,

According to this link, Sidecar and other Continuity features (such as Universal Control) are not accessible with Managed Apple ID.

Hi Michael,

I'm an Apple K12 Systems Engineer. Happy to help with your question! Like Clint mentioned, Sidecar does not support Managed Apple IDs. Be sure to connect with your assigned Systems Engineer to discuss other possible solutions. You can find out who your Apple SE is by calling 1-800-800-2775 and choose option 4 to get connected with your school's Apple sales team.

Best,

Dominique
