Charger Block

Paperwork [to be filled out in the ARC]

WHAT IF………

I DON’T HAVE MY CHARGING CABLE OR CHARGER BLOCK?

DO NOT go out and buy a replacement. We buy in bulk, so we get things cheaper than you can. If you buy an el cheapo replacement block, we’re going to charge you anyway for a replacement Genuine Apple charger block or MiFi certified cable, so don’t bother replacing it yourself.

MY CABLE OR CHARGER IS DAMAGED?

Bring it in anyway. You’ll get credit for turning in your parts.

I FORGET TO BRING SOMETHING WHEN I TURN IN MY IPAD?

Bring it TO THE ARC later, but BEFORE the “drop dead date”. We’re tracking who turns in what, etc, so you’ll get credited.

I FORGET TO TURN IN SOMETHING?

You are a Senior, for pete’s sake.
Take care of your business.
Do what it takes to make it happen.

Your parents will get a bill.
Your diploma will be blank and transcripts will NOT be sent until you take care of business.

IOS 10 – make the home button friendly again

NOTE: this is only applicable to those who have Air2 iPads AND have setup your fingerprints to open up your iPad.

If you miss just resting your finger on the home button to unlock it (as opposed to having to press home)

Here is how to re-enable touch to unlock

Many users were taken aback by the way iOS 10 handles unlocking the device by requiring a press on the Home Button. Devoted iOS fans will be happy to hear that this feature can be reversed to the iOS 9 behavior.

To reverse this behavior and go back to the iOS 9 unlocking behavior of just resting your finger on the Home Button Touch ID sensor, follow these steps.

Open the Settings app.
Select General | Accessibility.
Select the Home Button option.
Enable the option for Rest Finger To Open.
