Apple typically releases new versions of the iOS operating system on an annual basis. PlayerLync supports the current iOS and 2 full versions back. As of January 2022, iOS 13.0 and above is supported by PlayerLync.
Apple iPad comes in a variety of storage sizes. PlayerLync recommends selecting iPad models that will provide enough storage for users to receive all content you plan to publish. Typically, video files use the most storage on a device. PlayerLync for iOS will run on any currently sold Apple iPad models. Please consider future storage needs as most organizations end up keeping tablet devices for 3+ years. Leasing iPads is also an option. Please contact PlayerLync if you would like information on leasing devices from Apple.

Power consumption by Apple iPad will depend on how many and which apps are in use and are running in the background. The PlayerLync app can consume as little as 10% per day when no content is being downloaded, and as much as 50% per day with constant downloads taking place. PlayerLync recommends users plug-in devices at night to ensure they do not run out of power when new content comes down.
Physical location and usage can be tracked using a variety of tools. From Apple's "Find My" feature (for geo-locating devices) to a Mobile Device Manager (MDM) for pushing applications and setting security policies. There are many options to accomplish your organizational requirements.
