iPad User Group

The iPad User Group was started in Fall 2010 by staff in the College of Education Catalyst Center to demonstrate the capabilities of the iPad for both educational and personal use.

This website is a work in progress, so please check back regularly. We will be adding more resources as time permits! Check out our Meeting Archives

K-State iPad Warranty and Repair Services

Apple iPad devices can be checked in for warranty replacement as well as out-of-warranty replacement services at the IT Help Desk in 214 Hale Library. This program is open for both personally owned and university-owned devices.

For iPads under warranty, hardware replacement options are limited to an exchange program in which a new or refurbished iPad is provided by Apple to replace a user's malfunctioning iPad. For out of warranty and issues (physical damage, etc.) that are not covered under an Apple warranty, a replacement fee will be assessed by Apple depending on the issue. If Apple Care+ was purchased with the iPad, other services may be covered for a fee that is assessed by Apple. For details, see the terms and conditions provided at the time of  purchase.

This service is currently limited to Apple iPad models; it does not cover iPods or iPhones. For questions about this service, please email
