Of all the amazing technology in the world, the iPad is probably at the top of your list! It’s small, cute and incredibly capable of just about anything. One of the few drawbacks to the iPad is it’s complexity and all the info you need to learn about it! The following article is here to help with useful tips and handy tricks.
If your friends own iPads too, you can share your entire music and video library with them. Open your ITunes app and activate the home sharing function. You also need to enter your Apple ID in the music and video menu of your iPad. To access a shared library, open a music or video app and select more. You will then have access to a list of shared libraries.
Does your iPad continually ask you to join different networks? You’re able to turn off this feature through the settings menu. Select Wi-Fi, and from there, you can turn off this feature.
You can reboot your iPad when it freezes by doing a soft reset. A soft reset consists of simultaneously hitting the home and power buttons. The iPad will then reboot. If you need to close an app, press only the home button during a few seconds.
If at all possible, use Wi-Fi to connect your iPad to the Internet instead of 3G. Using 3G continuously, you can expect to get around 9 hours of battery life. With Wi-Fi, you can enjoy your iPad for even longer before it needs a charge. If you don’t need to connect to the Internet, disable both.
You can scroll back to the top of a long page in your browser without repeatedly dragging your finger across the screen. There is a much more efficient method. All you have to do is tap a finger on the title bar one time. You will zoom right back to the top of the page.
Back up your iPad often. Your iPad will soon be a major piece of your daily life, holding entertainment, notes, and even important documents. Make it a habit to do a back up of your iPad every night so that there is no chance that these documents will be lost forever. Remember, your iPad is still a piece of technology; it can break or brick without much warning.
Did you know that you can create folders on your iPad? Just tap any app and hold it until it starts to begin jiggling. When it does, drag the app over top of any other icon and let it go. The iPad will then make a folder for you with both of the apps involved inside.
If your iPad turn by turn directions are too soft or loud, change them in settings. Some people may need a little extra volume for these directions, while others like them softer. No matter your need, you can make adjustments right in your iPad settings. You can even turn off the voice if you don’t want it.
You know the iPad is a beloved gadget, otherwise people wouldn’t devote so much time to figuring it out! Hopefully this article has given you a jump-start on learning to use yours. With a little bit of practice and research, you will be an iPad master in no time flat!
