Although owning an iPad is a great thing, figuring it out can be complex and frustrating. This article will offer up some useful tips on getting to know your iPad and maximizing your use of it. Before you know it, you will be an expert in all that this great device has to offer!
If you want to utilize your iPad for processor-heavy tasks like gaming, watching videos or listening to music, you may get less usage time out of a battery charge. If you lessen the brightness of the screen, you can get more from your battery. You may find you can enjoy your iPad without using the brightest setting possible.
The latest operating system for the iPad supports folders. To begin, tap and hold your finger on an app until it starts jiggling, drag that app on top of another icon, and then let it go. When you do that, it creates a folder containing the two apps and labels them with an appropriate category. You can also rename the folder easily.
Even though your iPad does not come with a user manual, you can download one for free. Apple has a free PDF on their website containing the User Guide for the iPad. It also comes as an e-book you can read in iBooks, which is a free downloadable app available in the App Store.
Almost everyone finds it difficult to accurately type on a tablet’s keyboard. The iPad also has a button for speech dictation. Tap the Home button two times, and then tap the Microphone button. After you have dictated your piece, tap the icon one more time and your text will display.
If you enjoy frequently using smiley face or alternate emoticons, have the Emoji keyboard. To get this keyboard, tap settings, then General, and finally, Keyboard. Tap the international keyboards’ icon and look for Emoji. To add it, all you have to do is simply tap it. The next time you see the onscreen keyboard, it will be there.
If the battery in your iPad is fully depleted, charge it as quickly as possible. Storing the device for long periods of time with a dead battery can affect its ability to hold a charge in the future. Once per month, allow the battery to run down completely before charging it to 100 percent.
Get a screen protector for your iPad before you begin to use the device. While the screens on the iPads are of very high quality, they can still be damaged relatively easily if they are not protected. The smallest grain of dirt rubbed across the screen with your finger can result in a large scratch.
Since there is so much that can be done with an iPad, it can take a bit of time to figure it all out. Hopefully, this article has given your knowledge base a much needed boost! It takes even the experts a while to fully appreciate this amazing little machine, so give yourself time and have fun!
