Adding Apps to Teachers iPads

iTunes LogoWhen you want to start buying apps in the App Store for your teacher device, you can use the   CUSD Apple ID you created. This Apple ID will not have a form of payment linked to it. You will     only be able to purchase free apps unless you decide to link a prepaid gift card or credit card to this account.  

  1. On your teacher iPad, click on the Apple Store icon

  2. Search for the App you want to add

  3. Press “Get” and “Install”

  4. You will need to add a “payment type if a credit card was not linked to your account originally.

Adding Free Apps for Students

Please create a RADAR ticket to request free apps added to students' iPads.

Adding Paid Apps for Students

Paid apps may be purchased through Apple’s Volume Purchasing Program, or VPP, where most apps are 50% off for 20 or more.  To see if the app you are interested in qualifies for 50% off, enter its name in the left-hand field of the link below. Click "Search", look through the results, and click on the correct version of the app, which will display the pricing details.

This link is for pricing only; purchasing will be done through your principal and the CUSD PR (Purchase Requisition) process.
