General questions

Do I need to have the iPad?

Yes, iPad devices are necessary to receive Lynn's course materials. All academic programs use iTunes U, iBooks and apps that are not available on a laptop or PC. All undergraduate day students should have an iPad Pro. All iLynn and graduate students should use an iPad mini.

I already own an iPad. Can I use it for my coursework?

If you're an undergraduate day student, you should use a Lynn-issued iPad Pro to ensure you have access to all course materials. If you're a graduate or iLynn student, you can use your own iPad or a Lynn-issued iPad. Find technical specifications for personal devices on myLynn.

Can I use my existing iTunes account?

Yes, you can use your U.S. Apple ID. Please note, however, we encourage you to set up a new account if you share your iTunes account with family members. Additionally, if you're an international student, you will need to establish a U.S. Apple ID. IT Support Services can help guide you through this.

How do I set up a new iTunes account?

We will provide instructions with your iPad.

Can I install Lynn apps on another device that I own?

Yes, you can access Lynn apps on any Apple device. Log in using the same Apple ID that you use with your coursework.

Can I choose the color of my iPad?

No. Customization, including color selection, is not available on Lynn-issued iPads.

What is included on the iPad?

You will receive instructions with your iPad that will help you configure it for use with Lynn's environment, security, Wi-Fi (if applicable) and email. This includes LiveText and an app called "Mobile Iron" that provides you access to other pre-paid or faculty-recommended apps that enhance your iPad experience.

Will I need to purchase textbooks?

The majority of our courses have faculty-produced e-books, which provide significant cost savings. Should your course require a traditional textbook, this will be clearly indicated when you log into our online bookstore to purchase course materials.

Will the iPad have a data plan?

No. iPads are Wi-Fi enabled, so no data plan is required. Lynn has a state-of-the-art wired and wireless network that ensures you will have a reliable and fast connection anywhere on campus. iLynn and graduate students studying off-campus must have access to a wireless Internet connection from their home or other location.

What can't I use my Lynn-issued iPad for?

You must follow university policies. Visit lynn.edu/policy for details.

How long do I have to return the iPad to Lynn if I don't complete the program?

You must return it within seven business days.

Where do I go for help if I have any questions on setting up my iPad?

Contact IT Support Services in person (second floor of the library); by phone (+1 561-237-7979) during normal operating hours or email (supportservices@lynn.edu).

Why iPad Pro?

Why does Lynn use the iPad Pro?

We continually embrace new ideas and technologies that enhance learning and empower faculty. iPad Pro offers performance that rivals most portable PCs and multitasking that allows users to do more at the same time. The new, full-size Smart Keyboard makes it easier for students to draft essays, complete tests and build complex spreadsheets from anywhere. Apple Pencil expands the power of Multi-Touch and supports creative learners by providing them with a new way to capture ideas as notes, sketches or diagrams. iPad Pro also supports Lynn's ongoing efforts to create a more affordable education. The device not only eliminates personal computer costs but also has apps and e-books that are more cost-effective, timely and relevant than traditional textbooks and course materials.

Will I receive an Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard?

Yes. All iPad Pro devices will be distributed with the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, making it an immediate laptop and PC replacement.

What do I need to do to get my iPad Pro?

If you had an iPad mini, you will need to prepare for your iiPad Pro transfer:

  1. Update your iPad mini to the latest iOS.
    1. Go to Settings, General and then Software Update.
    2. If your device is not updated, you will be unable to migrate your information to your new device.
  2. Perform a back-up to a desktop computer or laptop.
    1. Choose the encrypted option
    2. Encryption ensures your iPad Pro will have the latest iOS and applications' saved user IDs and passwords will transfer to your iPad Pro.
  3. If you are returning your iPad mini to obtain your iPad Pro, you must remove your device from Find My iPhone and sign out of iCloud and iTunes.

Where and when can I pick up the new iPad Pro and accessories?

If you're a returning undergraduate day student, you may pick up an iPad Pro on Feb. 1-5 in the Elmore Dining Commons lobby from 10 a.m.–4p.m. and beginning Feb. 8 on the second floor of the library during regular IT Support Services hours.
