Can other apps be downloaded?

If there’s an app you’d like on the iPads, please contact us and we’ll consider adding an app.

Does Apple save my information?

Apple doesn’t keep user data. However, information entered by a customer, in order to access their accounts on the device, will remain on the device, unless customers log off from the apps.

For example: if you check your email and don’t logout, your inbox will be there when the next customer uses the same app. 


  • When using the Safari app, use the ‘In Cognito mode’ - it doesn’t save history or searches
  • Customers should log out of all apps and websites when they are finished with the iPads
