How to force restart iPad Pro

To INSTALL the Abacus POS App


Open the APPSTORE App on the iPad, search for Abacus, and then download the POS App (solid Blue icon).   

You will need an Apple ID already set up and ready to go.  If you don't have one create one at https://appleid.apple.com

Check the MASTER iPad to see if it's set as a MASTER - under Settings > Connection in Abacus.  If you need to make it the MASTER, it will prompt you for a PIN.  Use today's date.  eg 23rd December would be PIN 2312


Do you have a PRINTING Problem? 

Please read the checklist HERE.

Go to the iPad settings > WiFi > click on the little blue (i) to the right of the _POS network name and turn OFF "Private Address", then you must click "Rejoin".

Also check under the iPad Settings > Abacus icon that 'LOCAL NETWORK' is turned ON.
