    When you open the keyboard and, or mouse to insert the necessary batteries, you will find a small USB connector in the space next to the battery area. Please remove the USB dongle and insert it into one of the USB ports on the iOTA BASE. This will instantly connect the keyboard and mouse; simply begin using them after you have done this.

    When you reset the device, you will have the option to ‘Keep my files’ or ‘Remove everything’. To clear all files and settings from your iOTA, you will need to remove everything. We recommend saving any files you wish to keep on an external hard drive, before you do this.
