Using the iPad
iPad User Guide is on the web at help.apple.com/ipad, or download free in iBooks
Network – the iPad needs a network connection for most apps. It is easiest to open the Safari browser and connect to the Guest Network (Accept TWICE) any time you are on campus. For other networks (such as at home), you may need a password. To connect to the WFBMC production network and/or to use the Citrix portal app, you’ll need setup help from IS or Telecommunications, with password protection.
The iPads are preloaded with a suite of sample files and applications. Users will need to use their own personal iTunes account to install new apps.
All data will be wiped off and replaced with the standard preloaded files and apps when the iPad is returned.
IMPORTANT – To delete your personal information before returning to the Library:
Erase all content and settings: Choose General > Reset, then tap “Erase All Content and Settings.” This resets all settings to their original values and erases all your information and media.
