Setting up your Ipad Step 1 To get started, swipe left to right across the iPad's screen and then tap on the region where you plan to use the iPad (this is involved in setting the default language for your iPad, so it makes sense to choose the country you live in and the language you speak).
Setting up your Ipad Step 2 Next, connect your iPad to your Wi-Fi network. You need to do this in order to activate the device with Apple. choose whether you'll use Location Services or not. Location Services is a feature of the iPad that lets it know where you are geographically. This is useful for apps that make use of your location (for instance, to recommend you a nearby restaurant or give you show times at your nearest movie theater) and for Find My iPad (more on that in Step 4). Turning on Location Services isn't required, but it's so useful, I strongly recommend it.
CONNECT TO WIFI • Click on Settings • Wi-Fi • Wait for network to search for ‘Staff’. • Wait for Deidre to insert Network Key.
Setting up your Ipad Step 3 At this point, you need to set up an Apple ID. A Terms and Conditions screen will appear. This covers all the legal details that Apple provides about the iPad. You have to agree to these terms to continue, so tap Agree .
APPLE ID, APP STORE, ITUNES • SETUP AN APPLE IDThis will be used to download new apps, games, music, and more. It is also used when setting up security features and accessing your content in the Cloud. If you have iTunes, you already have an Apple ID. It is the email address you used to connect to iTunes. If you don’t, you will need to supply an email address that you can access.
Setting up your Ipad Step 4 Choose whether or not you want to use iCloud. ICloud is a free online service from Apple that provides a number of benefits, including the ability to back up data to the cloud, syncing contacts and calendars, storing purchased music, and much more. As with other settings, iCloud is optional. I recommend it. Set it up using your Apple ID as your username and password. At this stage, Apple gives you the option to set up Find My iPad, a free service that lets you locate a lost or stolen iPad over the Internet. I strongly recommend doing it at this point; Find My iPad can be a big help in recovering your iPad should something happen.
Setting up your Ipad Step 5 • iMessage: This feature of the iOS lets you send and receive text messages when connected to the Internet. Text messages to other iMessage users are free. • FaceTime: Apple's famous video calling technology. In iOS 7, FaceTime added voice calls, so even though the iPad doesn't have a phone, as long as you're connected to the Internet, you can use FaceTime to make calls.(use the same email address as you use for your Apple ID.) • Set a four-digit passcode. This passcode appears whenever you try to wake up your iPad, keeping it safe from prying eyes. It's not required, but I strongly suggest it; it's especially valuable if your iPad is lost or stolen.
PASSCODE LOCK YOUR DEVICE • Worth enabling should you be worried about access to iPad content, especially around children. • Settings app • Select General • Passcode Lock • Choose a four-digit passcode. • Set the passcode to be required immediately, after one, five, 15 minutes, or one hour, or four hours. • Be sure to turn on Auto-Lock so that your device will lock down after a certain period of time.
