iPads for School Kids

Howard Conrad Apple Repairs iPads for Charity

We have heard in the news that there are some children who don’t have access to the technology that they need in order to participate online classes from their school in Harrogate and surrounding areas.

According to the Children’s Commissioner for England Anne Longfield’s team “Up to 8 million children are likely to lose out on six months or more of education as a result of the coronavirus crisis”.

We’ve decided to try and help out where we can.

We are calling on you – the local community of Harrogate to help by donating their unwanted smashed iPad’s.

We will then repair the iPad’s to our usual high standards then donate them to schools in Harrogate and surrounding areas. The schools will then distribute these iPads to the children who are most in need.

We are currently working with the Red Kite Trust who operate a number of schools in Harrogate and Leeds.

The iPads need to be running the operating system iOS 11 or newer to be compatible with the learning apps and must have the linked iCloud account removed (this is very important). If the iPad is too old we will still help by recycling the iPad for you.

This is a list of compatible iPads:

12.9-inch iPad Pro (2nd generation)
12.9-inch iPad Pro (1st generation)
iPad Pro (10.5-inch)
iPad Pro (9.7-inch)
iPad Air 2
iPad Air
iPad (6th generation)
iPad (5th generation)
iPad mini 4
iPad mini 3
iPad mini 2

Donations are now closed.

Thank you very much to everyone who donated iPads over the last two months.

Thanks to your kindness and generosity, over 60 children have been able to learn from home who otherwise might not have been able to.
