Some of the new apps and other technology uses the IOS 8 System, therefore DeLaSalle is requiring you to update your device to iOS 8 over Christmas break. Before you update, back up your documents using iCloud in settings and in your GoodReader app. You can find videos on how to update and back up your device on the Student Technology page in Canvas. This is a school wide requirement and will need to be completed before returning from break.

In order to update you must have at least 4.5GB of storage on your device. If you do not have 4.5GB you will need to delete some applications. Start by deleting personal apps and photos followed by school apps that you do not use. If you still need more room, delete iTunes U. When the update is complete you will be able to redownload the apps that were deleted. If you are still having issues with clearing enough space, please email support@delasalle.com.
