Making Your iPad Test Ready

In order to take EOGs, iPads must be test ready. Below is checklist to ensure that all iPads are test ready.


All iPads should be updated to the latest iOS. In order to determine if an iPad has a system update, follow the procedure below:


  1. Go to Settings
  2. Click on Software Update
  3. If the iPad shows that a software update is available, click install.
  4. It takes approximately 10-20 minutes to update the iPad and the iPad must have at least 50% battery life. During the update, the iPad will be unavailable for us.


Below is a screencast showing how to check and perform a system update for the iPad.


Deleting Old Versions of NC Test App

Any previous versions of the NC Test App should be deleted off all iPads. This will ensure that testing will go smoothly. To delete the NC Test App, place your finger on the app and hold until the app begins to "dance." A "x" will show in the upper right hand corner. Click on the "x" and you will be asked if you want to delete the app. Click yes and the app is deleted.
