If you listen to daytime talk TV, then you know that Oprah has declared the iPad to be a great invention. If you are new to using an iPad, it can feel very overwhelming to know where you can start. In this article, we will help you with some handy and practical iPad tips.
It is easy to access your running apps on the iPad. If you click the Home button twice, you can see the running apps along the screen’s bottom. You can scroll through the applications or choose one of them. Just swipe downward on your screen to remove this bar.
Avoid using an iPhone charger to charge your iPad. Your iPad doesn’t have the same wattage as your iPhone which is 10 watts as opposed to 5 watts on the phone. If you use that iPhone battery charger, it will be twice the time to charge. Just use the original charger that was given with the iPad.
If you have safety concerns should your iPad fall into the wrong hands, set the password to delete your personal data if someone enters the wrong password over and over. Doing so will completely wipe your phone after 10 attempts.
If you enjoy reading operating manuals and would like one for your iPad, you will need to download it. It is easier for Apple to make it a download than to print a manual for every product.
“Ding!” Does the chiming of your iPad whenever you receive another email drive you crazy? Are you aware that you can turn it off? Under general in settings, you can alter the sounds. When you are in General, then go to Sounds. Turn off sounds for New Mail or reduce the volume.
Because iPads are not cheap, it makes sense to care for yours well. Get a screen protection if you plan on transporting your iPad. This is a thin plastic film that adheres to your screen and keeps it safe. Always use soft, damp cloths when cleaning iPad screens. Never use a household cleaning product!
It is easy to access running applications quickly. Press the home button twice and a bar will appear with all the running apps. Rather than scrolling for apps, you’ll be able to find them instantly.
Use iTunes to sync your iPad with your personal computer or Mac. Sharing documents isn’t a pain anymore and being able to interact with nearly any home computer using iTunes is incredibly helpful. This is actually the best way to access the PDFs stored on your iPad.
When taking photos, you might hold the iPad on the sides. Holding the sides will make the shutter button move and ruin your picture. To get around this issue, use the orientation lock instead. Doing this will allow the shutter button to be a thumb’s distance away. After you’ve snapped the picture, use the image editor and rotate the picture to your liking.
