Read This Guide If Your Want To Properly Use Your Ipad
Have you tried using your iPad for certain things, and it hasn’t quite worked out the way you wanted? Well, it’s probably because you just need a little more help understanding what exactly you can do to make things more efficient. A few tips and tricks should help point you in the right direction.
Know how to take a screenshot with your iPad. Simply depress the Power and Home buttons simultaneously for just a second. A photo of your screen’s contents will automatically appear in your photo folder for easy access. Be careful not to depress the buttons too long, however, because the device will reboot.
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 want to secure your iPad’s backups, you can do it by opening your iPad in iTunes, going to the summary tab and choosing Encrypt Data. That way, you will have all of your information safe in case something happens, and you lose all the information on your iPad.
Are you interested in easily retrieving your iPad if it gets lost? Just go to your iPad’s Settings and then click on iCloud. Insert your Apple ID. Once you do this, the bottom of your screen will flash “Find My iPad” and tap it to turn the feature on. If you ever lose the device, just go to iCloud.com.
This a useful trick if you need to mute the sound of your iPad quickly. Just depress the volume button for a couple of seconds. That’s faster than adjusting the volume repeatedly. To restore your volume, hold down the volume down button again.
If you are struggling with the battery life of your iPad, don’t fret. First, you should be sure to close any programs that you aren’t using. Also, keep your brightness at a low but comfortable level whenever possible. Finally, be sure to turn off any music programs when you aren’t using them.
You may not have realized it, but you can move your application icons anywhere on the screen that you want. To do so, simply hold the icon for one second and when it pops up you can move it where you want. This is also the way to delete an application.
Do you find your eyes straining when reading on your iPad? You can fix this by lowering the brightness of your screen when you read. Open the eBook app and use the sliding brightness control to dim the screen.
If you are listening to music on your iPad while doing something else, you don’t need to wake it up completely to change the song. Simply double click the home button and you will have access to shuffling your music, volume control, and the next and previous song buttons. This saves energy as well!
Never store your iPad with a dead battery. Storing the device with a battery that is completely drained can essentially kill the battery and make the device useless until that battery is replaced. Store your device with at least a small charge, and always make sure to charge your battery before it is completely drained.
The iPad calendar is a tool created specifically for those busy bodies that need to keep a tight schedule. A navigation bar is located along the screen’s lower margin that allows for quick jumps from one day to the other. People may now utilize this calendar to schedule events weeks or months in advance. There are also various audible and visual alarms that guarantees they will remember.
Get a case or screen protector. If you use your iPad regularly, it is going to show signs of wear and tear, particularly on the screen. To avoid more than is necessary, get a screen protector or a case so that you can keep the screen free from scratches and damage.
You can import your own books for free using your iPad. The iBook app by apple allows you to browse a free section of books. However, your iPad allows you to read books downloaded elsewhere. You can import these books, but keep in mind that the only format an iPad can read is ePub.
Google Maps is a graphic intensive program on many computers, but the iPad handles it perfectly and allows indepth street views. The GUI seems confusing at first, but navigation is straightforward and a red pin designates an area for street view. With this new view, you will be able to get up close and personal with your favorite locations through the iPad.
