Church purchased / owned iPads

#1

Post by piekarskire »

We have a few units where the use of personal devices is not feasible and there is no Church provided broadcast solution.
With the need to support unit broadcasts and the decision to provide Zoom accounts, has there been any discussion or guidance for Church owned iPads? In a large business organization we would purchase through an authorized reseller which would register it with Apple Business Manager and our choice of device management suites. If the local units purchase them, we do not get any volume discounts, the unit has to create and manage the itunes account, and there are no controls on what applications can be installed.

My question is why go with an iPad when you can get a fully capable Android phone for around $40 that can do the same function? Doesn't matter that it's carrier locked as it will never get the SIM activated. I purchased similar phones (only made by Samsung) last year for each ward in our stake and they're still working great.
