iPad

iPad is an iOS-based line of tablet computers built around the device's multi-touch screen, including a virtual keyboard. The iPad includes built-in Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity on select models. An iPad can shoot video, take photos, play music, and perform Internet functions such as web-browsing and emailing. Other functions – games, reference, GPS navigation, social networking, etc. – can be enabled by downloading and installing apps.

I have an ipad 4 (so it is old) and I have forgotten my 4 digit pin. I have not been on it in 3 + years.
I know the password to my itunes account but cannot remember my id.
Is there anything that I can do?

I do not have the original PC that this was setup with so I am at a loss.
I would be fine to reset it to factory defaults, but cannot see anyway how to do that.

The worst part is I think I know the 4 digits that are used but cannot remember what order they are in and it just keeps adding timeout amounts.

I accessed iFixit website, formymobile.co.uk, repairuniverse.com, and techrepublic.com and can't find any complete guide.  My objective is to replace the charging port in an A1822 iPad.  I have the part, but no guide.   Thanks.

I wanted to learn creating app on iOS and need get a Mac computer.  I don't have any experience with iOS development yet, though being a well experienced programmer. With a budget of $600 or less, I need suggestions on what's a good computer/platform to buy (including used ones), so I can have a smooth start and quick success in get a sample working  app onto, say, an iPad, while features and speed of the machine are not yet my main concern.

Thanks

We have a middle school student that printed some porn on a network printer from an iPad. Is there a way to identify the iPad or user that sent the print job? I have print job logging turned on, on the Windows 2008 server, but the iPad jobs are going through Airplay or Airprint, whatever it is called and not showing up in the Windows logs.

I have a MacBook with OS X 10.7.5
I'm trying to download Apple Configurator and it says I need at least 10.12.5.

I tried running software update on the MacBook and it says it has the latest version OS... so I'm assuming that 10.7.5 is the latest the hardware will support.

Does anyone know of somewhere to download an older version of Apple Configurator that will run on my OS.
My ultimate goal is to configure an IPAD in a very specific way... which is supposedly (as per those on EE) done with Apple Configurator.
Just to clarify.... this is my first Mac computer.   So please be gentle.  :o)
Thanks in advance.

I recently found a bunch of my cds of music I've gathered over a couple decades.  I have imported them all into my Macbook's iTunes.  I looked for a short time to see if iTunes can do what I want, but it seems like the files have to be physically on the devices to do this.  Or I have to turn on Home Sharing.  Meh.  Not really a solution I'm looking for.  I didn't see an option to put them in the cloud and then stream to my devices?  Did I miss that?

Ideally, I would like to put the files in the cloud and then access those songs from my devices.  Essentially, I'm asking for a way to stream my music, right?  I'm new to Plex and imagine that can do what I want it to if I install the Plex client on all my devices and buy Plex Pass, but wanted to know if there is another option I should look into?  
What have you used and recommend?

(If you've experience with Plex Pass please share your experience!)

I have a Macbook, iPhone, Apple TV, Roku and iPad.

Thank you for looking.

How do I Connect iPad Pro (iOS 11.2.1) to Apple TV - or maybe just TV.

Quite by accident I somehow connected my iPad Pro to Apple TV (?) which turned on and duplicated video on iPad. I was viewing a YouTube video and pressed something (?) which started the TV display. All this is wireless.

Not sure if I was connected to Apple TV, as indicator led was not on.

I only use Apple TV for MLB Games, and don’t understand how this connection was made. HDMI cables used for Apple TV connections. I did notice a new TV menu item, while video running, but failed to copy name.

I have an Apple pencil which I believe is connected to my iPad via Bluetooth.

When I'm not using the pencil actively - is the battery still being used?

What are some iPhone apps that can be installed on a (non jailbroken) iPhone X with iOS 11.1.1 to prevent iOS upgrades?

Hello all,
Let me preface this that I know very little about iPads.
A client of mine has several iPads that they use for business and are using DropBox on them.
They want to save the data in the DropBox to the Windows 2012 R2 server that is running AD.
To me it would be smartest to setup a couple of Windows PCs that are part of the domain with the DropBox accounts then have the data on those PCs be on one of the mapped drives of the file server.
Is their an easier way than this to do it from the iPads without opening up the AD to everyone?
Thanks,
Kelly W.

What needs to be done so that the "Contacts" icon will display on the iPhone X screen?

As a follow up to Best method to setup a tablet in KIOSK mode where it can only use Internet Browser to 1 website..

The steps mentioned in the above question were perfect for restricting the IPAD to only one website in SAFARI, and removing the ability to get in MOST apps on the IPAD, but I can still get in some of the APPS (maps, clock, etc...)

Is there a way to make SAFARI the only app user can go into, and is there a way to force the ipad into SAFARI when the unit comes on?

This device will be locked in a KIOSK stand and I'm tryng to remove as many possible problems as possible.
Thanks

The IPAD I am testing with is an IPAD 2, running IOS 9.3.5

Hello Experts,
We need a tablet that will only do one thing.  Use the internet browser... and will only browse to one site.
This will mainly be for providing information to those near the device, but want the ability to ask the user a multiple choice question also.

In a perfect world, each time the unit powered on, it would open up the browser and would go automatically to a pre-determined site (And would not be able to go to any other site)

Is it possible to force ANDROID or IPAD to start the browser as soon as it's turned on?  Based on what I've read on EE, it is possible on a windows machine... but assuming that a decent Windows Tablet is going to be a substancially higher price than say an ANDROID tablet.   Having it work on a cheaper unit would be preferable.

Plus with Windows 10 seems like the OS is going to be a lot more.... "overhead" (for lack of a better word) than is needed.   This website will literally be the ONLY thing this device will ever do.

Boss says that he USED to login to websites like an online newspaper and once he logged into it with his username and password it would never ask for it again if he visited the site again.  Now (in the last week) he has to login when he goes to the site.  This is happening on more than one site on the ipad that requires a username and password for access.

Somebody I know collects customers from the local airport and has noticed that the other drivers collecting people are now using their iPads rathter than an old piece of cardboard with a name on it.
He has an iPad but doesn't know how to do this. I know nothing about Apple products but found apps from the Google Play Store that do the job nicely. BOARD is one of them but I can't see an Apple version. Does anybody have any recommendations for a similar display board app?
