iPad 101: The Basics - iOS 5.0

These instructions assume that you do not have an iTunes account/Apple ID that is used exclusively for a state-owned iPad. These instructions show you how to set up an account that will not have an associated credit card but which will still allow you to redeem apps that are purchased by your department.

Most of the steps will be done directly on the iPad. Since the iPad is touch sensitive, you will be using your finger(s) to swipe left to right left to right arrow, right to left right to left arrow, top to bottom top to bottom arrow, bottom to top bottom to top arrow as well as tap (usually once) on the screen to navigate through the various configuration screens and Apps (aka "applications").

If at any time you would like to return to the main iPad screen (once Step 1 is completed), press once on the Home button (the slightly indented button with a square found on the face of the iPad).
