Learn all about your iPad so you can get the most from the features available. Read the following tips to make yourself a fully informed iPad user. Get the most out of this modern device.
The user reviews are generally incredibly accurate in representations of the quality of the application. Of course, you need to make sure that there are more than just one or two reviews, but if there are, and if the app has four or five stars, you should be good to go.
There is a way that you can check all the running applications that you have at a given time. Simply double-click the Home button. A bar near the bottom of the screen will indicate which apps are in use. If you want to bring up that app, just tap its icon on the bar. To make the bar disappear, simply swipe the screen downwards.
You may need to reboot the iPad with a soft reset if it freezes. To do so, hold the power button and home button simultaneously for several seconds. This will cause the iPad to restart. If you want to kill a running process, hold the main button for around 5 seconds.
Do you have trouble hunting and pecking on smaller devices? A lot of people do not like typing on the iPad. You can dictate your speech through a button on your iPad. Press the home button of your iPad twice and select the microphone icon that appears. Dictate your text and click the icon a second time when you are finished.
Your iPad is defaulted to show the first two lines of an email in preview. Sometimes, you may want to have a larger preview. Just visit SETTINGS and tap MAIL. From Mail, choose Contacts, then go to Calendar where you can change the options to preview mail.
Performing multiple app updates at the same time can slow down your iPad and make it difficult to get anything done. You can alleviate this by pausing apps and forcing them to update one at a time instead of all at once. Tap the icon of the app that is updating to pause it. When one is finished, you can allow another one to finish updating.
Use the available space on your dock. It comes with four things on it, but it can hold two additional items. Simply push on an icon until you see it wiggle around and then pull it to your dock. Do this for anything that you use very often, as having it readily accessible makes your life easier.
Get a USB keyboard. When you get a keyboard, you expand your abilities with the iPad. Keyboards are often more comfortable for posting on Facebook, forums and doing other online writing. That allows you to be more efficient. Some keyboards double as a case, so check out the options available.
By clicking two times on your iPad’s Home button you can quickly view a list of the applications that are currently running. They will appear in a bar located at the bottom of your iPad’s screen. If you want to change to a new app, just tap on it once. You can remove this bar by swiping the screen down.
The iPad’s “.com” button can multitask. Most people know about the handy “.com” button that makes typing web addresses easier, but it can do much more than that. If the website you are heading to ends in “.net” or “.edu,” simply hold down the “.com” button and you will see several new options pop up.
Try to avoid keeping your iPad screen set at 100 percent brightness. Keeping your screen set at maximum brightness can diminish your battery life significantly. This means you have to spend more time plugging your iPad in, and less time using it. It’s easy to change your screen settings, and a setting of 30 or 40 percent is usually adequate for most iPad usage.
If you plan to take your iPad into the kitchen, you absolutely must have a screen protector, stylus and standing case. You will accidentally drop goo all over your iPad, and the protector and case will ensure it says off the iPad itself. The stylus keeps sticky fingers off the screen, too.
Want a faster than light screenshot with your iPad? It’s now quicker and easier than ever; simply hold down the home and power buttons simultaneously and your screenshot is instantly saved. Look for it later in the Photos App under saved photos albums. You don’t have to do anything else!
Use iTunes to back up your data. You do not want to lose all of your music, apps pictures and other data if your iPad was to crash. Use iTunes to store by going to your Summary tab, then checking the Encrypt iPad backup that is found under the Options. This way, all of your information is stored safely somewhere other than your iPad.
Now you better understand all the benefits of owning an iPad. Use the information you’ve learned to get the most from your iPad. Take a little time to sit down with your iPad and enjoy playing around with all of the new things that you have learned.Posted on: February 25, 2017, by : kook
