    Before buying a new iPad I want to know if it's possible to create different user ids to log into an iPad. For example so I can have apps that my dad wouldn't have access too

    No. At least not in the non-jailbroken space. Don't know about any options with a JB.

    no. iOS devices are designed as single user

    The answers are correct...it's a one-user device.

    However, there's at least one jailbreak tweak that can passcode-lock individual apps.

    Nope, Apple thinks everyone should own their own device.

    Jailbreak would be your best option for something like that.

    iOS products are designed for a single-user experience, not to say multiple people can't use it, there's just no log in or anything like that for any iOS device.

    BUT that only applies to iDevices running Apple's software.

    As stated before, there's a huge chance that some jailbreak is out to allow multiple logins or something to that effect on a jailbroken device. Now I can't say for a fact that a jailbreak offers this, but I'm going to trust that their most likely is.

    I would look to the jailbreaking threads and maybe look around there if you're interested in the jailbreak option.
