Updating to iOS 7
Hello students and teachers, you can now update to iOS7, this is major update that makes many changes to the look and operation of the iPad and its apps.

Back up either by iCloud or iTunes (instructions in the link below – most of you will have iCloud set up already so back up using that )
If you don’t back up you could loose everything!!!!!
Follow the instructions by clicking the link below
You can leave the Keychain facility until later if you are not sure (this allows you to put in your credit cards etc into the iPad so you don’t have to keep inputting the numbers – I’d leave it for the moment)
