The iPad is an amazing gadget. You can use it to type, draw, record yourself and complete many other tasks. However, if you don’t know all it has to offer you are missing out. This article will show you some great tips and advice for getting the most from your iPad tablet.
It is easy to access your running apps on the iPad. Double-clicking on your Home button will show all the running apps in the bar at your screen’s bottom. If you want to bring up that app, just tap its icon on the bar. To remove the bar, swipe your screen downwards.
Did you just launch a noisy app by mistake? Press and hold the volume down feature until you get to mute. If you need to mute often, you can set your lock button to mute, too.
If you need to charge up in a hurry, do not use an iPhone charger on the iPad. Your iPad doesn’t have the same wattage as your iPhone which is 10 watts as opposed to 5 watts on the phone. You will not be able to charge your iPad as quickly if you are using your iPhone charger. Use the original charger instead.
Some people take time to adjust to typing on an iPad. It is possible to have your iPad convert what you say into text. Simply depress your home button two times, and hit the small microphone icon. After you have dictated your piece, tap the icon one more time and your text will display.
Take good care of your iPad and it will last longer. One crucial tip is to never leave your iPad in a place that could cause it to succumb to extreme weather conditions. Your battery will slowly start to hold less of a charge if it gets hot too much. Don’t let it get wet either. Use a covering to prevent liquid from getting into your iPad.
Are you annoyed by the battery charge display? It may be useful to know that they are easy to turn off. Start off with your Settings menu. Once there, go to General and locate Usage. You will then have access to the battery percentage display and have the option to turn it off.
Do you want to get to your most popular apps as fast as possible? Just double-tap the home button, and you will see them on the bottom of the screen. This little trick saves a ton of time, as you don’t have to scroll through screens to access something.
iPads come with a few apps preloaded. Many unwanted apps cannot be deleted. Put these programs into a folder and move it to a location that is removed from where you typically spend your time. Place the apps you use the most where you will be able to access them quickly.
Use tabs to multitask when surfing the Web. You no longer have to surf away from the page that you are currently looking at in order to follow a particular link somewhere else. Holding the link will bring you to the options menu. From this point, opt to open that link inside a new tab to remain on your current tab while the new one opens.
Your iPad is easily capable of taking a screenshot. You can do this by pressing the button that says sleep/wake after you have tapped the home button. You will then hear a click and see a small flash. This means the shot is done. The shot will appear in the Photos app where it can be emailed or viewed.
There are two ways to view a PDF. Your PDF can either be inputted into iTunes and synced with your iPad, or you can just email the documents to yourself. Try them both out to see which method is best for your needs.
You iPad can be a great tool, especially if you use the advice you have read here. Remember and share each of these tips that you learned. It feels good to be able to share helpful advice with others that need help with their iPad, too.
