The student's iPad will need to be running the latest version of iOS and be at least a 16GB capacity for school use, however, a 32gb model is preferred. Families have the choice to purchase any model or version of the iPad. i.e can be full sized or mini.
The minimum iPad requirement includes all iPads from iPad 3 and onwards.
A WiFi-only model will reduce the cost of your purchase and is compatible for school use. However, should you not have internet access at home, some families may choose to purchase a 4G cellular model.
