iPads give you many functions for use once you know them and have learned them. The first time you use an iPad, you might have trouble understanding everything it can do for you. Use the tips presented below in the article to help you understand how awesome an iPad really is!
You can get to all of your active apps easily on your iPad. Just hit the Home button twice and a list will show up on the screen. If you want to bring up that app, just tap its icon on the bar. To take the bar away, just do a downward swipe on your screen.
Did you accidentally start a noisy app? Press and hold the volume down feature until you get to mute. The lock button can be turned into a mute button as well.
Are you sick of your iPad asking you to become part of a Wi-Fi network? Then go to settings and eliminate the possibility. Look for the option which gives you the choice of joining networks. Simply select this option, and then, those pesky invitations will stop.
There is no need to hit your small camera icon just to see something you just shot. Just swipe your finger to the right to find the video or picture you just took. To view other photos you have stores, swipe toward the left side of the screen.
Adjust the settings in order to see more than just two lines from emails prior to opening them. Go to mail in settings and then preview. Here, you can alter the preview that you see to 5 lines. This saves you time by letting you skim your email at an accelerated rate.
Unless you have a lot of time to recharge your iPad, avoid using an iPhone charger. The two devices both operate at different wattages – the iPhone at 5 watts and the iPad at 10 watts. And their chargers follow suit. If you use that iPhone battery charger, it will be twice the time to charge. Instead, use the charging cables that came with your iPad.
It is always best to read the manual of the products you buy, but the only way to get a manual for your iPad is to download it. Apple, following a minimalist approach, don’t include a user manual with their iPad.
To include Google calender events on the iPad, select Mail > Contacts > Calenders. You can then go to Add An Account and then Other. Hit Add CalDAv Account and punch in all of your Google information. Next, you exit the settings section in order to access the calendar app. Everything you need should be right there!
You can now quickly mute your iPad. There was no mute button on the original iPad. Now, you can mute the sound easily with very simple steps. Hold down the volume-down button to mute your iPad.
If you want to use the copy and paste feature on the iPad, you can click it and drag to select text. Then push “copy” and move over into a different app. Push the screen and hold down for a second. A menu will pop up and you should tap on paste. If you have a significant amount of sentences to copy, you may have to tap multiple times.
There is a quick way to access your apps that are running. Press the home button twice and a bar will appear with all the running apps. This trick will save you time, versus scrolling through separate screens to find what you are looking for.
Your battery will last longer if you reduce the brightness of your screen. This can really help if you’re expecting important messages while traveling. You can decrease the brightness by double tapping the Home button and looking for the sun icon.
Even though you may not want them, security features are a smart idea. You might lose it and people will have access to everything from your emails to your bank information.
Does the Google search on your iPad leave you dissatisfied? This can easily be accomplished in a just one step. Access the Settings, choose Safari and then Search Engine. From there, select the search engine you want to use. You have the choice between Google, Bing or Yahoo.
Has taking a fast screenshot been something you have ever needed to do? It is not that difficult at all. Just press the HOME button. Next select the SLEEP/WAKE button. You’ll see a flash, which indicates you’ve just taken a screenshot. These shots save automatically, reducing your worry that you will lose them.
Do you find that your iPad is not as fast as it used to be and apps do not lead right away? If so, it’s a good idea to review all your stored information and delete some. Think about putting pictures and media in iCloud to free up more space. For many users, this will help the iPad become smooth and speedy once again.
Do you get annoyed by all the Wi-Fi notifications? This is easy to turn off. Visit settings and look for Wi-Fi. Go to the “ask to join network” area and turn it off. Do not worry if you would still like to join a particular network. You can; however, you are not going to get a million notifications.
As stated above, there are a lot of ways that you can use the iPad to fit the needs you have. If you understand how to make the device work for you, your value will be even greater. Use these tips to make sure you get all you can out of your iPad.
