S2 iPad Set Up at Home

Say Hello to iPad!

In order to set up your iPad, you need to create an Apple ID and set up an iTunes/App Store account.

  • You will need to create your Apple ID using your school email address.
    • You will then need to verify your Apple ID by logging into your  school email.
    • You can log into your school email by going to http://office365.edin.org and use your normal username and password (eg the same name and password you use to log into the computers in school)

      IMPORTANT: your school email address is yournumber@schools.edin.org – Remember the s in schools!!  eg 01234567@schools.edin.org

  • Please take a note of your Apple ID and Password
  • When setting up your iTunes account, ensure that you use NONE as the Payment Details.
  • You will be prompted at one point to add a passcode.  Please ensure you add a passcode and remember it.
  • Once you have set up your Apple ID and iTunes account, please download Pages, Keynote, Numbers, Garageband, iMovie and iPhoto from the App Store.

A guided walkthrough of setting up an Apple ID, iTunes Account and accesing school email can be found below in three different formats: Narated Video, PDF document and Slideshow.
