BYO iPad Program minimum requirements

​Minimum requirements

Any 4th generation iPad with retina display and 16GB of memory.

Preferred device

iPad Air or iPad mini with retina display and 32GB of memory.

Devices do not require cellular access and parents may disable 3G/4G functionality  by removing the SIM card if a device with this capability is already owned.

We are often asked whether a device other than an iPad can be used for the Albany Creek State High School BYO iPad program?

The simple answer is no. Albany Creek State High School  have decided that the iPad best meets our needs and context. Other devices will not be permitted to join our network.

The iPad can be purchased from any vendor. Local suppliers include the Apple Shop at Chermside, JB Hi-Fi, Big W and Target. If you wish to purchase online you can do this through Apple themselves.

When purchasing an iPad you should also purchase a carry case, click on keyboards are also useful. A combination case/keyboard is a great option and should be considered. 

Breakages and repairs

Basic problem solving and device support will be provided by the school.

Parents as owners of the device are responsible for breakages and damage. Parents should counsel their children about the proper use and care of the device to reduce potential breakages.

Parents are advised to take out insurance or adjust their current insurance policy to ensure that the iPad is covered at school for damage, loss and breakages.
