Android or iOS? Not sure what kind of device you're using? We can help!

Your device, such as a smartphone or tablet, runs on either an Android or iOS operating system. An operating system is the software program that makes a device run. Android and iOS devices work a little differently and it’s important to know which operating system you’re using.

If you have a smartphone or tablet made by Samsung, Google, LG, or Motorola, you have an Android device.

If you have an Apple iPhone or iPad, you have an iOS device.

The ABC Connect for Learning resources are for use at home and in workshops and activities that are also free for participants. Resources are not to be used for commercial purposes.
