Oprah says that iPad is one of the best things ever invented. 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.
Don’t lose track of your iPad app spending. Sometimes, apps can cost a lot, especially if you purchase a lot of them. Therefore, you should closely watch your spending.
Sometimes you will get a frustrating wifi-network prompt during the day. This feature can be turned off under your settings. Select “Wi-Fi” and then turn off the notification option if you want them to disappear.
Have you accidentally launched a noisy app? Press and hold the button used to turn down the volume, and the device will mute automatically. If you find yourself needing to mute sound frequently, you may want to set up the orientation lock button to work as a muting control.
Almost everyone finds it difficult to accurately type on a tablet’s keyboard. That said, a button for speech dictation exists on your iPad. Simply depress your home button two times, and hit the small microphone icon. Once you finish, hit that microphone once more and you will see in text what you have spoken aloud.
The iPad lets you see 2 lines of an email before viewing it in full. It can help for you to see more lines before you open up the email. In mail under settings, you can make this alteration. Under the mail menu, choose Contacts, and then Calender. Change the Preview options for mail to More Lines.
If you are like most people, you receive many emails each day and do not need to be notified each time. You can shut off that feature. Go to the settings and tap on general. You should then select the Sounds menu. Turn off sounds for New Mail or reduce the volume.
Shortcuts are a great feature to install to save time and reduce stress. For instance, a period and space are added when you tap the space bar two times while typing a sentence. This can be a useful way of speeding up your messaging.
Everyone should know how to best take care of their very valuable iPad. Don’t keep it inside a locked car and make sure it’s not in direct sunlight. Battery performance is degraded with intense heat. Also, don’t put your iPad near places that are damaging to electronics, like chemicals or liquids. A cover is a wise investment for your iPad.
Do you ever find you want to take a quick screenshot on your iPad? It is really very simple to do. Press the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously. Instantly, a screenshot will be taken and stored with the rest of your images.
Go to your apps that you keep running quicker and easier! All you must do is to click Home twice, and they appear at the lower edge of the screen. This trick alone will save you lots of time.
Apple is good about not loading your new iPad with a bunch of junk third-party apps. They do pre-load many of their own tools including music, maps, iTunes, and Newsstand. That said, they can’t be removed, either. Simply put all these apps into one folder, and keep the folder away from where you will see it often. That way, you can concentrate on the things you find most useful.
Now that you know more about the iPad, you are ready to hit the ground running. Make use of what you’ve read to turn your iPad into an everything machine. Make the most of your investment by learning as much as possible.
