Harrogate repair specialists donate unwanted and broken devices to local school

Apple Repair Specialists Howard Conrad have donated a number of unused and broken iPads to a local school to help with home learning.

Apple Repair Specialists Howard Conrad have donated a number of unused and broken iPads to a local school after calling on the community to donate their unwanted devices. Howard Conrad, located on Leeds Road in Harrogate, put out the appeal after learning that up to 8 million children could miss out on education due to the inability to work online from home. And the community have responded by donating unused and broken devices for the team to fix, prepare and then donate to Grove Road Primary School. The repair specialists have been working closely with the Red Kite Trust, who operate a number of schools in Harrogate and Leeds including Grove Road, Rossett Acre and Coppice Valley among others. https://twitter.com/grove_road/status/1359058946775003138?s=21 The Appeal Howard Conrad's appeal is still ongoing as they ask the community for unwanted iPads to donate to the children most in need. Donated iPads need to be running the operating system iOS 11 or newer to be compatible with the learning apps and must have any linked iCloud accounts removed. If the iPad is too old, Howard Conrad can still help by recycling the device. 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 To donate, head to the Howard Conrad website here and fill out the form.
