Updating Your iPad to iOS 9

The district has now UNBLOCKED the Apple update server so CISD iPads can now be updated to iOS 9… we are already finding some apps that will not work w/out the update, so it is recommended that you go ahead w/ the update… this weekend or early this week.


Please run the update AT HOME while your iPad is plugged into power and on your home WIFI – this will help keep our school wifi from getting bogged down w/ all the update traffic!


Steps to update:

  • SETTINGS / GENERAL / SOFTWARE UPDATE / INSTALL NOW
  • Wait while the update is loaded and installed… this may take 10-15 minutes or longer!
  • Your iPad will re-start


Once the update is complete

  • Click on CONTINUE
  • Click on GUEST
  • Click to ENABLE LOCATION SERVICES
  • Enter your iTunes password – the one w/ the upper and lower case and at least one number! … click NEXT.
  • At the iCloud Keychain prompt, I would suggest that you click on “Don’t Restore Passwords” / Continue
  • Click Get Started


SETTINGS

  • PRIVACY – Confirm that Location Services are ON
  • BLUETOOTH – it is suggested to turn this OFF unless you need it for a Bluetooth keyboard or other Bluetooth device
  • WI-FI – Change back to CISD Wireless
  • VPN – Confirm VPN turned back ON**
