All Exact Path content will work on an iPad since it does not require Flash or any other plug-ins to run. There are, however, some known caveats with older devices such as the iPad 1 or 2 (version 9.3.5 and below).
Note: Edmentum always recommends using the most updated iPad. See our System Requirements for more information.
iPad Limitations (version 9.3.5 and below)
- Longer than normal loading times will occur
- Delays will occur when interacting with buttons

Our Development and Curriculum teams have done extensive research and investigating as well as partnered with a 3rd party expert (Mentor Mate) to address the challenges of long load times when using older technology hardware such as the iPad 2. Unfortunately, there are limitations when using the iPad 2, leading to content loading times that are longer than the standard.
Open Setting > Sounds > and adjust Mute or Volume from there
Toggle Bluetooth Off and On > See if you can play sound without Bluetooth selected
Check the Do Not Disturb is set to 'OFF'
