    • If families wish to use the 8th generation iPad from 8th graders (class of 2028), parents must understand that Apple may not continue providing iPadOS updates up to the end of 8th grade. If Apple discontinues the updates, you may need to find another iPad model to use.

New iPad Recommendations to buy on your own

  • 10th generation iPad 64 GB. Not an iPad Mini.
  • Logitech Combo Touch “Combines a precision trackpad with a full-size keyboard for your iPad. Full Multi-Touch™ gesture support transforms your iPad into a productivity machine for working in spreadsheets and documents, a robust learning tool for remote classes, and more—the possibilities are endless.”


Families that cannot purchase the bundle or bring their own may request a school-issued iPad for use during the school year. The device remains the property of the Wellesley Public Schools and may be asked to be returned to the school over vacation breaks, weekends, and the summer. The same iPad is returned to students when they resume classes.
