If you currently own an iPad Air 2 or newer, you do not need to purchase an iPad. If you need to purchase a new iPad, any iPad currently sold at Apple.com will suffice: iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad, or iPad Mini 4 with at least 32 GB of storage. Wi-Fi will be provided in the building, so a cellular data plan is not necessary.
A sturdy case, insurance plan, stylus, bluetooth keyboard, and earbuds are recommended. You are free to shop around for the best deals on such accessories. Remember, the iPad is a classroom material so bring it to school fully charged, updated, and ready to use everyday.
Parents/students may purchase the iPad directly from Apple or other third-party seller. The decision to give students ownership of the iPad allows students and families to utilize Apple’s reputable customer service and continue his educational use of the iPad into college. Due to Apple’s restrictions on reselling its products and the limited discount from bulk purchasing, Rockhurst does not sell iPads.
