When you first purchase something as great as an iPad, you may not know how all of the bells and whistles work. This is why it is important that you gather enough knowledge to understand the inner workings of an iPad.

When you are looking into purchasing an iPad you need to consider a few things to get the best price possible. If you want to use the iPad outside of your home or office, then you will want to purchase the more expensive version that includes 3g as well as WIFI.
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.
Do you have an Apple TV? You should be able to stream some of the content stored on your iPad to this TV. Open the content on your iPad while you are next to your Apple TV and wait for the Airplay icon to appear. If you tap it, your content will be sent to your TV.
If you’re battery is draining fast than you’d like, turn off some notifications and location based items. Your iPad is constantly monitoring where you are (as long as it’s on wifi, 3G, or LTE). This monitoring sucks the life out of your battery. If you don’t need the features, then you can extend your battery time with a few flicks of a button.
Be careful with your iPad at the beach. Sand is a pretty dangerous thing for an iPad. Not only can it get caught in the little crevices of the device, it can also easily scratch your screen where few other things can. It’s best to use a screen cover in these situations, or better yet, leave the iPad at home for your beach time.
Screenshots are not hard to take on your iPad. Just hold the home and sleep button simultaneously. Instantly, a screenshot will be taken and stored with the rest of your images.

A quicker way to access websites is using the “.com” key. When browsing in Safari, you can save time typing website addresses by just tapping on this key.
