Are you confused by some of the ways that you must work your iPad? Do the double tap, page slides and zoom techniques blow your mind? If so, you may have just found the solution to your problem. Below, you will find some of the best tips and tricks to assist you in using your iPad.
Never leave your iPad in a hot car or any similar environment. The intense heat saps devices of battery power. Exposing it to extreme heat and light can affect the battery’s ability to hold a charge for long periods. This type of damage is not covered in your warranty, making this a pricey mistake.
Make the most of the “delete all” function that is incorporated within the iPad. For security reasons you can program the tablet to delete all your sensitive data if your password is entered incorrectly 10 times. This is a perfect feature if your tablet has been lost or stolen and you keep extremely confidential details on it.
Go into your settings, navigate to “general” and slide the side switch to “lock orientation.” Typically, this is set to mute, but that can be incredibly inconvenient. For example, if you are trying to read on your iPad, the screen may continuously rotate, causing you some frustration. Fix this ahead of time.
Take Apple’s iTours to get yourself familiar with your new iPad. It is fun to have all these exciting new apps, but sometimes you could use a little help figuring out how to use them. Apple has an online video tour for every app that comes preinstalled on your device, so be sure to take a look at them.
The little beeps every time you get an email can be quite annoying. Did you know you can turn off this annoying feature? Go to the settings and tap on general. Select “Sounds” under this tab. This should display all of your sound options, including the ability to mute or damped new email notifications.
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.
If you have young children who will be using your iPad, you might want to restrict their access to mature content. Even by accident, it is easy for a child to access an inappropriate website unless you do this. Simply go to your settings, and then click on general. There you will find “enable restrictions.” Tap on this and you will find a list of restrictions that you can select from.
You should now feel more comfortable and confident operating your iPad. Each of the preceding tips will help you in one way or another when it comes to the use of your iPad. Soon, it will come as second nature and you will be able to maneuver through your iPad without second thought.
