iOS 8 - Convergence!

What Is iOS 8?
On Wednesday, September 17th the update will be available! District users (except student devices) are allowed to perform their own updates (see directions below). However, it is important that users understand that it will change the "look" of the interface and tasks may change, perhaps for the better!
Should You Update?
It is okay to "play it safe" and wait a few days/weeks before making the switch to the new iOS 8.
