Compatible iPad list

The school strongly recommends that the iPad is purchased through the school to benefit from the 3-year warranty, 3-year insurance, as well as fortnightly courier service for damaged devices. 

Parents who opt not to purchase must ensure that their existing iPads meet the following conditions: 

Compatible with Device Management Application (DMA) software (for DMA to be installed)

Compatible with stylus and keyboard (e.g Apple Pencil, Ruggedized Combo 3)

Not older than 4 years from manufacturing date

Battery should hold charge for at least 4 hours. 

Wi-fi function should work and support at least IEEE 802.11 a/n/ac standard that uses 5GHz band.

In addition, they must allow the existing iPad to go through a factory reset, i.e., existing data in the device will be wiped out.

Due to the implementation of Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), please await further information from the school with regards to the assessment process for  compatible devices.

The table below shows the iPad models that are compatible with DMA software.
