Chapter 1: Set-Up

In this chapter we look at the core considerations for setting up your iPad/iPhone.

You will be using the Settings button. It is the same for both an iPad and iPhone and looks like a grey wheel (see below).

 

The 3 key areas to remember when using your device are:

  • Know your personal Apple ID/Password (write it down and keep it safe somewhere)
  • Find your Wifi password (back of router)
  • Don't slap the screen - tap it!

 

Below are some more tips to help you work through the settings on your iPad/iPhone.
