I-Pad Models

  • There are a number of IPad models available.
     
    Please note:
    The Minimum Specifications for students starting in 4th or 5th grade in the 2018-19 school year:
    • IPad Generation 5 (from 2017)
    • 32 GB storage
    • iOS 11
    • wifi (cellular not needed)
    • Full size iPad (Not Mini)
    • Protective case / Cover (we have seen good protection from cases that surround the edges of the ipad as well as have a flap that covers the screen.)
    The Recommended Specifications:
    • iPad Generation 5 or Newer, including iPad Pro (2017)
    • 128 or 256 GB Storage
    • iOS 11
    • wifi (cellular not needed)
    • Full size (no Minis)
    • Protective case / Cover (we have seen good protection from cases that surround the edges of the ipad as well as have a flap that covers the screen.)
     * Be aware the iPad Pro has two 'full size' options: the standard 10.5 inch and the new larger 12.9 inch.
    The 10.5 inch size has worked well for lower school students.  Before getting the larger model, consider the additional size and bulk in the student carrying from room to room, putting in their cubby and back packs. 
     
    Apple usually comes out with a new model in late fall of each year.
