Anyone who has ever used an iPad knows what a powerful, yet intuitive and elegant device it is. Learn all you can so you can take advantage of all it has to offer. The following article contains additional tips and tricks that will help you optimize your iPad experience.
Before you purchase an iPad, you should take the time to make a list of the features you need and decide what kind of storage size you want. There are different models of iPads available and there is no point in spending money on features you are never going to use.
Apple always examines all of their apps before showing them on the store. This means that you can generally trust the quality of the item you will receive. However, you should at least give a cursory look at the reviews of previous user; this can be done directly from the store.
If you go to Settings and Notifications, you can choose which apps you want to have pop up alerts, which apps you want to have notifications near the top of the screen, and which apps you want to appear in your Notification Center. Doing this can help you prevent noisy apps from clogging up your notifications. This also ensures that you will just notice the important apps.
Choose between Orientation Lock and Mute. Older versions of the iPad featured an “Orientation Lock” button on the side of the device. The button remained on later versions, but its function was switched to “Mute.” If you preferred the older function, you can access a setting in the General Settings menu to set it back to its original function.
Most tablet users do not enjoy typing on their device, even though they eventually get used to it. Alternately, you can use the speech dictation feature of iPad. Simply push home twice and a small microphone will pop up. After you finish speaking, push the icon once more to see text.
You can switch your search engine from Google, if you wish. Go to the Settings menu, choose Safari and then choose Search Engine. You can then switch to Yahoo or Bing if you like them better than Google.
Get an iPad cover as soon as possible. While the front glass is made of Gorilla Glass (a very strong material), it can still scratch. You want to protect your investment. Get a screen cover that will protect your iPad glass when you have it in your bag. This way you are sure that it is safe.
If you are a photo buff, then the iPad is really interesting for you. While it isn’t a professional-level camera, it is an exceptionally good amateur camera. What is better is that there are many applications, which allow you to manipulate the photo right on the iPad itself!
The iPad is inspiring. For anyone interested in making this device part of their daily life, some time spent learning about its true potential is in order. By following the tips and advice from this article, you’re on your way to having an amazing iPad experience.
