Apple iPad: Get started

The courses in this topic guide you through safely setting up your new or pre-owned iPad. Each course contains an instructional video that you can follow to set up your iPad and customise it to suit you. We recommend watching each of the videos on a computer so you can use your iPad to complete the set-up steps as you go.

Identifying your iPad: All iPads have a small Apple logo on the back. If you can’t see this logo, you likely have an Android tablet. If you do have an Android tablet, you can set it up by viewing our Android tablet courses.
