How do I connect my iPad to the internet?

Never used an iPad before? Connecting to the internet is easy. Check out this Apple article on how to join wi-fi networks.

I'm having network problems with my Apple AirPort Express. It was working before, but now its not. What can I do?

Try disconnecting and reconnecting your iPad from your wi-fi signal. If you're still having problems, take a look at the Apple Airport Express support guide. Apple also has discussion forums where you can submit a question to the Apple AirPort Community and get responses from other users and support.

Common network troubleshooting

    • If shopify.com does not load properly on your iPad, please move on to the following steps for more troubleshooting instructions.
  2. Check if your iPad is connected to a wi-fi network using the instructions on apple.com. If you are connected, please move on to the next step.

  3. Can you connect to the internet on another device on the same network — for example, a phone or computer?
