Apple Devices

Apple devices are not used often and should only be used for those who are heavily relying on it for graphic design or other media editing. Some applications are also Apple-specific. Apple devices tend to be more expensive and IT has limited ability to perform hardware repairs. All purchases must be IT approved.

After purchase, IT will manage all Apple devices. i-Pads can be very customized with specific applications and restrictions.
