Practical Advice For Using IPads Like A Pro

Your iPad is capable of great things. Chances are, however, that you do not know everything that it has to offer. You will need to figure out everything your iPad can be used for, like where to find apps and how to use them. Read on!

You can get to all the running apps on your tablet. Press the Home button twice to view all of your current apps. You are able to switch to whatever app you want, by pressing it on the bar. To get rid of this bar, swipe the screen in a downward direction.

Server Address

VPN networks are perfect for accessing remote servers. This can be activated from the network tab under settings. A server address and username will be required to use this. If you are unaware of the server address, you must contact the network administrator.

Do you find the Wi-Fi notifications increasingly annoying? By going to settings, you may switch this feature off. Touch the tab for Wi-Fi, and you can turn off the prompt by changing the last option.

Is a noisy app driving you nuts? Mute the volume quick by pressing and then holding your volume down button. Do this until you can’t hear anything. If you use mute often, you can set your lock orientation button as a muting alternative.

If you are in the habit of reading the instruction manual for everything that you buy, you need to know that the iPad’s manual is only available via download. Apple doesn’t include manuals with their products in order to maintain a minimalistic image.

If you would like to include your Google Calender on your iPad’s calender app, go to mail, then contacts and then calenders. Go to Add An Account and tap Other. Select “Add CalDAV” and enter the credentials you use for your Google account. Next, you exit the settings section in order to access the calendar app. You should now be all set.

If you want to browse a new web page without losing track of what you were browsing before, use the tabbed browsing feature. In Safari, you can simply tap the link you want until a menu shows up. This pop-up menu offers you an option to view the new link on a new tab.

Do you feel distracted by seeing the battery charge percent icon on your iPad screen? This is easy to toggle off. Click on Settings. Find Usage under the General tab. You should be able to figure out how to turn off the battery percentage display on this menu.

Because the iPad is not the cheapest gadget around, it’s important that you care for it properly. Screen protectors are purchased by many people. This is plastic which adheres to the screen and protects it. Clean the screen only with a soft, damp cloth. Avoid using window cleaners or other types of cleaners to clean your iPad.

Are you on the Internet nearly all the time? Then take advantage of the iPad’s cloud functions. Use the cloud to store things without taking up valuable space on the device itself. Make sure that important documents are stored on both your iPad and the cloud function.

Take advantage of the iPad’s brightness features to extend battery life. This feature senses the ambient light in the room and adjusts the backlight to suit your surroundings. Doing so is the perfect way to have some control over your battery life. Go to Settings/Brightness and Wallpaper.

Shutter Button

Taking pictures often means turning the iPad to the side. Doing so will make the shutter button move around, causing wobbly pictures. Give the orientation lock a try. When you do this, you will be able to access the shutter button easily with your thumb. The photo can be rotated in image editor afterwards.

Choose the functionality you’d like for the lock switch, orientation lock or audio mute. Some early models of the iPad will not have this option. You have this option if you have iOS 4.3 or a higher version. Holding the volume-down button will mute your iPad.

Security is key to iPad safety. You do not know when it may accidentally get lost, and it normally provides access to lots of secure data like phone numbers, addresses, emails and possibly bank information.

Search Engine

Is Google not your favorite search engine? This can easily be accomplished in a just one step. Find the Settings menu and the option is listed beneath the “Safari” subheading. Look at the options, then simply select an alternate search engine. You can choose from Bing, Yahoo, or Google.

If you would like to toggle between multiple apps without returning to the main area, hit the home button twice and all of the apps you are running will appear. Just click the app you are interested in, and you will be there before you know it. You can find any open app using this feature.

Street View

Your Google maps has a feature that allows for street view. Complete a search on the map and you will see a red pin appear. Tap the pin, then choose the person icon. This loads Street View.

It is important to protect your children from inappropriate sites when they are surfing the web on your iPad. Go to your Settings menu, open up General, then Restrictions. Enable the restrictions and you should be good to go. You can protect your kid from things they should not see. Access to adult content in both websites and videos will be forbidden.

Always turn on Find My iPad in case you lose yours. This tells you the precise location of your iPad and gives you the option of deleting sensitive material contained on your device. You may think this is a hassle, but you’ll be glad of it if your iPad is lost or stolen.

An iPad can help to make a lot of hassles easier to deal with. Knowing how an iPad can be used for entertainment or business purposes is fantastic. The iPad lets you do things that would have required separate devices with one easy-to-use gadget.
