Setting up an iPad

Configuring mail, wifi, Siri and other settings

Our tutor can work with you through the initial switch-on and setup. We talk you through the start-up procedure, linking to your wifi, connecting to your existing email account and establishing your Apple ID or Google ID for the app store. After that we'll download some essential apps, and make sure the appropriate security is set up.

And if it's a phone, your tutor will make sure you are clear about the essentiuals of making and receiving calls, and sending text messages.

If you're already set up, we can go straight to the tutorial sessions...
