Hilliard City Schools | Ready for Tomorrow

Adding Apps.

How to Add Apps to an iPad

Students will be responsible for managing the number of apps and content on their iPad.  If you begin to notice that you are running out of storage space on your device, it will be up to you to delete apps, music, or photos that are not needed for educational purposes.


Steps to add Apps to your iPad:
(High School Only)

  1. Tap on the App Store icon.
  2. Tap on the search box (found in the upper right corner).
  3. Type in the name of the App you want to find.
  4. Tap “Search.”
  5. Select the App you want and then tap on the button to the right of the App.
  6. If prompted, enter your Apple ID and password.

If you would like to purchase other Apps, you will need to add an iTunes gift card to your account.
