Some of the most popular Android tablets are made by Samsung and Google, but not all Android devices have easy-to-spot logos. If you’re unsure if you have an iPad or an Android tablet, you can easily find out by looking at the back of your device. You may need to remove any additional protective covers first. This can be fiddly, so you might like to ask a friend to help you do this.
If you can see the Apple logo, you have an iPad and should look at our Apple iPad courses. If you can't see an Apple logo on the back of your device, then you most likely have an Android tablet and you are ready to begin.
