Setting Up the iPad for the First Time

Setting up the iPad for the first time will take between 1-2 hour depending on your comfort level, if you have Apple ID (Apple iTunes account ID), your internet connection speed and how many other things you are trying to do at the same time. Our advice is to plan on 2 hours and keep it as interruption free as possible.

These instructions cover the following topics (the times given are just a guideline to help you plan):

  1. Unboxing the iPad (5 Minutes)
  2. iPad Introduction (10 Minutes)
  3. Installing a screen protector (20 Minutes)
  4. Registering the iPad with Apple (15 Minutes)
  5. Setting up Wi-Fi on the iPad (5 Minutes)
  6. Ordering your first application directly on the iPad (20 Minutes)

What you will need to complete this task:
