WHAT TO TURN IN

  • iPad, IN the case WITH the front screen
  • Charger Cable
  • Charger Block
  • Paperwork [to be filled out in the ARC]

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO

  • Have it charged up more than 20%.
  • Sign out of your AppleID. If you have two-factor-authentication turned on, you WILL NEED the cell phone you used to turn it on. CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS.
  • Change passcode to all zeros.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN’T DO THIS STUFF?

  • We will NOT accept the unit until your AppleID is signed out. If you don’t have access to the connected cell phone number, you’ll have to turn it in later.
  • If you unit isn’t charged enough for us to get the signin process completed, then you can plug your iPad in and wait until it has enough juice….or you can come back later.

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 in High School, for pete’s sake.You are no longer 4 years old. Take care of your business.  Do what it takes to make it happen.

Your parents will get a bill. You will undoubtedly hear about it all summer long.

3d Scanner

To go with our 3d printer we have a 3d Scanner. 

The combination means you can take something, scan it, pull that file into software, mess around with it, and then 3d print the result. It’s definitely worth experimenting with!

Want to know about 3d scanning? Here are some links with some great info and cool videos of what some people are doing with 3d scanning:

iPads: Turn Two-Factor Authentication OFF

Some students have turned what is called Two-Factor Authentication on inside their iCloud account.

For most of your digital devices, this is a good idea. HOWEVER, for the MDS iPads, it creates a lot more work for the tech team AND has the potential to keep your iPad from getting prepped for the next school year.

Therefore it is MANDATORY that two factor be turned off on your iCloud account [and thus your iPad] BEFORE you will be allowed to turn your iPad in.

So what happens if you don’t turn in your iPad? You get a substantial bill – enough to make the people in your life who pay the bills VERY unhappy.

So how do you know if it is turned on or off?

  • On your iPad, calling up Settings
  • Top left, click on your name
  • Click Password & Security
  • Two-Factor Authentication should be turned OFF

If it IS, then your will be allowed to turn in your iPad.

If it is ON, then do this BEFORE YOU TRY TO TURN IN YOUR IPAD:

  • On a web browser, surf over to appleid.apple.com
  • Login. Your account and password should be the same as your email – if it is not, check with Tech Support.
  • Call up Account Settings
  • Call up Security
  • Locate the part where the screen says Two-Factor Authentication is ON. Click the link to turn it OFF.
  • You will have to select some security questions. Check with Tech Support to see what we recommend.
  • DO NOT add a rescue email or a trusted phone number – unless you like making your life more complicated and giving yourself headaches.
  • Logout of the site.
  • On your iPad, you will have to type in your AppleID password again. Please do so – that way your backup can happen.
