Please be aware that this class is only suitable for Apple iPads (a specific brand of electronic tablet). Due to the quite substantial differences in the software which runs the systems of other tablet brands (Microsoft Surface, Samsung etc) those tablets will not be suitable for this course. If you have any questions about your particular tablet, please do not hesitate to contact us on 9652 0611 and we would be happy to discuss this with you.
What should I bring on the day?
Please bring along your iPad, its charging cable (in case your batteries are low) and a pen and paper to the session in case you wish to take notes. Please do charge your iPad battery in advance.
We also reccomend (if possible) that you update your iPad to the most recent iOS and register it on iTunes prior to class starting. Also bring your iTunes login ID and password with you in case you need to access the Apple Store/iTunes on the day. ** If you have trouble with this do not worry about it and come along anyway, our fabulous teacher Eddie will sort you out 🙂
