Useful Information

While you have the iPad, you can install additional apps using your Apple ID & Password through the App Store. (Don't have an Apple ID? Easily create one by clicking here and following the steps). Any additional apps downloaded will be associated with your Apple ID and can be reinstalled onto any apple device in the future.

Once returned, all information on the iPad is erased and will be restored to library settings. This includes any apps installed, login information, and documents downloaded. Be sure to save any documents before returning the device—while apps can be reinstalled using your Apple ID, documents downloaded to the device are not associated with your ID
