Caring for your iPad
The following are some tips we recommend to help get the most out of your iPad.
- A case for your iPad.
To help prevent against broken screens and accidental damage, we recommend buying a case to fit around your iPad. Cases help to absorb impact and also help protect the headphone and charging ports from any dust/liquid buildup.
A great place to start is the Apple Online Store: http://www.apple.com/au/shop/ipad/ipad-accessories/cases-protection
- Charge your iPad every night.
Having a fully charged iPad keeps students online, negating the need to plug in and charge towards the end of the school day.

- Keep your iPad up-to-date.
With the rise of mobile devices being used in the classroom, it is essential to keep these mobile devices secure and reliable.
By keeping iPads and apps up-to-date, this helps improve security, stability, and offers new features to continuously enrich the iPad experience.
Together with the students, we help update their iPads and apps at school; striving to stay ahead of the curve.
