Many people dream to have the iPad. However, when you already have it, you will feel confused because of the many features of the iPad and you do not fully understand how to use this gadget. With the iPad, you can do many wonderful things. Get tips on how to use the iPad in the following article.
You can move to the top of a page in Safari by tapping the title window. Many people scroll, but that is time consuming. This is a good way to browse through a page before going back to the main menu of the site to find more information.
Are you worried about possibly losing your iPad? Then go to Settings, then iCloud. Type your Apple ID in the space, and look for “Find My iPad” at the bottom of your screen, then turn it on. Thus, if you lose the device, you just need to go to iCloud.com.
Know that the calendar area doesn’t let you go from one date to another via swiping. To look at a certain date, try using the navigation bar that is near the bottom of your screen. Today’s date will be colored blue and easily recognizable.
Be aware that your battery may be short-lived if you make use of your iPad for listening to music, playing games or streaming movies. Adjusting the brightness is a great way to extend battery life. It is unlikely that the brightest settings are needed to achieve a good picture.
Accessing apps without going to the start screen is as simple as double-clicking the home button. Just click the app you are interested in, and you will be there before you know it. Go back to another the same way.
The iPad’s default setting shows two lines of every email prior to it being opened. Sometimes, you may want to have a larger preview. Just click on Settings and then Mail. After you go to “mail”, choose “contacts” and “calendar” in order to see additional lines of text before opening your messages.
Kids need to be protected from the Internet. Go to settings, go under General and then go to Restrictions. From there you should click on the enable restrictions choice. That way, you can keep your kids away from adult-oriented material. Adult content on sites and videos are going to be restricted.
Keep in mind that in order to charge an iPad, you don’t have to have an outlet. You can also plug it into your computer through the USB port. You can use your laptop to do it when you are traveling.
There is an interesting way that you can turn off the sound on your device. Just depress the volume button for a couple of seconds. This saves a lot of time. To restore your volume, hold down the volume down button again.
The volume buttons may not work. If this is happening, go to settings > general > sounds. If you have the settings for Change on you can use all of the buttons. You may use the slider as well.
One of the things that have made the iPad so popular is its ease of use. The user interface is simple. There’s a single button and a touch screen. Prior to reading all you can about this device, figure out what you’re able to do by yourself. After a little time you will see how easy it is to navigate.
Do you watch many videos on the iPad? Then, you might need to find a long power cord. That way, you can easily position your iPad for easy viewing and save battery power for times when you aren’t near an electrical outlet.
Viewing PDF documents on an iPad is very easy. The iPad can view PDF’s as well as sync them with other devices. Functionality like that is great for workers, businesses and students.
Have you ever wanted to connect your iPad to your television to get more use out of the device? You are able to do this if you purchase a adapter. You will need to get an Apple VGA adapter or a digital AV adapter. These will both work.
Do you find that your eyes start to hurt while you’re trying to read using the iPad? You can make the screen less bright on your iPad. You can change the level of brightness in Settings, or you can simply do it within the iBooks application with the slider.
You can utilize several methods for managing the battery life of your iPad. Keep it away from excessive heat. And when possible, reduce the brightness of the screen. When you won’t be using the Internet, then you can use airplane mode. You can also turn off Push email to lighten battery use. Instead, check email and other features manually.
Did you accidentally start a noisy app? It is easy to mute the volume on the iPad. All you have to do is hold down the volume-down key until it turns off. Alternately, you could configure the button labeled LOCK ORIENTATION to use instead of the mute button.
You want to buy an external keyboard for your iPad. When you type a lot, then you will save a lot of time with an external keyboard. These (often wireless) keyboards will be much easier than onscreen iPad keyboards.
The iPad is certainly a strong, resistant tablet, but avoid getting it near water. For example, you should not use your iPad while bathing, taking a rainy day stroll or enjoying a sauna. If you get it wet, you may have to buy a new one.
You are now able to quickly mute your iPad. There originally wasn’t a mute button on the first iPad. Previously, you could use the lock switch to either mute the audio or lock the orientation. To quickly mute your iPad now, just press and hold the volume-down button.
Surely by now you’ve learned at least one or two interesting things that you hadn’t known about the iPad. You may be surprised to find out what a difference these tips can make! It has amazing capabilities! Keep learning more, and make sure you keep up with what is trending. New apps are constantly being created, making the iPad your new best friend.
