All went well yesterday after we had done the Apple Configurator update - here were a few that we had to put into recovery mode, etc... which wasn't GREAT- but worked alright. Students had to put in email address again as well as Schoology, no big deal. Some lost their camera roll pictures - not the TOTAL end of the world. But TODAY - 5 kids have LOST EVERYTHING!!! UGH!! I don't do ANYTHING different with these iPads that I don't do with the others that have worked fine - so WHY????????????? A senior girl and a freshman boy lost EVERYTHING! It COMPLETELY WIPED their iPads and reinstalled ALL again - WHY??????????? I want to call Apple but I am TOO MAD to call as I wouldn't be anything tactful at all - so I sit and ponder what it might be - maybe I should use another word than Ponder, I guess they're throwing him back in next week, huh??:):) I just don't know what to do. AND the part that gets me the MOST is Apple KNOWS that schools across the country are using iPads - they KNOW that students are putting notes in there, using for projects and presentations, etc... WHY DO THEY PUT AN UPDATE OUT IF THEY HAVEN"T COVERED ALL BASES?? Yes, I AM YELLING HERE!! Not at you, I apologize, just SO frustrated. We started the year SO SO SO AMAZING!! Things worked perfectly, yes I will even dare say perfectly! Then - the iOS7 Update comes out and ALL has gone to pot. Yes, they came out with an Apple Configurator update, which was needed - but WHY WHY WHY would they do these updates during the year and make all a mess! Bring update out in the spring - iPads are turned in and there is time to figure out things over the summer; but when kids NEED them how can this be?
I TRULY think I might have to take some time off here - OH my head is KILLING me and worst of all I can do NOTHING about it:(!!!
Here's to a hopeful afternoon and tomorrow,
