If you know more about your iPad, then you will be able to do more things. iPad is an incredible tool that has many features that are not yet fully understood by iPad users. Use your iPad every day by using tips from this article that will help you to use your iPad to it’s full potential.
If you need to change the volume on your iPad, go to the Settings function, General tab and the Sounds option. Your Change with Buttons option must be On. The volume slider is a nice way to get the exact volume you want.
You can easily see the video or picture you just took without clicking the camera roll. Swipe to your right using a finger, and there is your video or picture. Previous photos of yours will show to the left.
Does your iPad seem to be slowing down when loading up apps? Have you deleted any unused data and apps without making any headway on the speed problem? If so, then your next step might need to be sending all of your pictures and music to the cloud. This final choice is almost always the solution that iPad users needed for a better running iPad.
Adjust the brightness to make reading and playing games easier. This can be changed using the Brightness option in the Settings menu. You can keep the battery powered for longer by reducing brightness, too.
In your inbox, you may want to see more than the first few lines. In the mail section, you can adjust this with the preview setting. The recommended setting for this is “5 lines.” This will allow you to see more of your message for quicker skimming.
You can easily take a screenshot with your iPad. You need to tap the home button and the sleep/wake one. This will yield a flash, which will mean that you took a picture. This means it took a photo. If you need to find the screenshot later you just access your Photo gallery and look until you find it.
When you first purchase an iPad, the factory settings set a signature that lets everyone know you are using this particular device. Most people don’t bother changing it, and this can be rather tedious. You can personalize it to something different. Visit “mail” in “settings,” select “contacts” followed by “calendar,” and then select “signature” to make your changes.
Muting the iPad is fast and easy. There was no mute button available when the iPad was originally introduced. The iOS 4.3 allowed its users to utilize the switch-lock. Just tap and hold volume-down to quickly mute sound.
Want to know how to locate an iPad if it gets lost? Go into your Settings menu and pick iCloud. Enter your ID for Apple at the base of the screen. You will see the notation: FIND MY IPAD. Turn this function on. If you happen to lose your iPad simply go to iCloud.com
Is the iPad default search engine leaving you dissatisfied? Simply try selecting a different search engine. Go to Settings, choose Safari, then choose Search Engine. You can now change your search engine. You will be presented with the options of Google, Yahoo or Bing to use.
Decrease the screen brightness in order for the battery to last longer. If you use your iPad a lot and are unable to charge it for some time, this trick is especially beneficial. On the Home page of your iPad, you can change the screen’s brightness by adjusting the setting that shows as a sun icon.
Adding a full stop is possible when using different apps to type documents. Simply double tap the space bar when you complete a sentence. When two taps are made, a complete stop as well as a space is entered. This “full stop” is an excellent shortcut that saves time and energy during long essays or documents.
To easily copy and paste, all that you need to do is press and hold the text and choose Select. Tapping on the text, switch to an app, and hold it down again. Again, a menu will come up, this time tap “paste.” If you have a significant amount of sentences to copy, you may have to tap multiple times.
Are you irritated by the percentage of battery icon on the top right of your screen? If so, then it’s possible to turn this off, and it’s quite simple. Start out in the Settings menu. Locate the Usage setting under the General settings. Here, you will be able to turn off the display of battery percentage.
Click Settings, Mail, Contacts and Calendars to add Google Calendar to your iPad. Hit Add An Account and hit Other. Hit Add CalDAv Account and punch in all of your Google information. Then navigate out of settings and click on the calendar application. You should see what you need.
