Things to Remember • You must have your Wi-Fi enabled to surf web, download ebooks and get to the App Store. • You will have to a username and password for Adobe Digital Editions the first time you download from OverDrive. This is a free registration. • Not all printers will work wirelessly with iPads. Apple maintains a list on their web site. • Don’t forget your Apple id and password. You will need it to download apps and upgrade your IOS. • It’s a “Use it or Lose it” set of skills. The more you use it, the more comfortable you will become with it.
