From time to time, it is essential students run software updates on their iPads in order for the applications to run smoothly. This process is very easy to do. In order to update your iPad to the most current software settings, go to Settings, General, then Software Update. Download and install the update.
If your iPad is not charged to at least 50 percent, the update will not run unless your iPad is plugged into a charger.
If you are having trouble updating your iPad at home, reach out to Mrs. Campbell in the library.
