Hi, Leilani.

You can wirelessly turn on supervision by configuring a DEP policy in Hexnode MDM. But first, you need to join the Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP). Here’s all you need to know about getting into Apple DEP

After joining DEP, log on to your DEP portal and set it up to connect to Hexnode MDM server. Here’s a detailed guide on getting that done.

You can now configure your DEP policy right here in Hexnode MDM to enable supervision. Now, have your iPad erased, and during Activation, the device communicates with your DEP server, gets your configured policy and turns on supervision without you having to hook it up to a Mac. It’s best to have your device enrolled with Hexnode MDM at the time of Activation to start using the advanced features available only on supervised devices.

We have included a video on Supervision for iOS devices.

Thanks and regards
