Put an end to WiFi connect messages. Tired of being notified every time you stray into a WiFi zone? In the Wi-Fi section of Settings, there is an option to turn off “Ask to Join Networks.” You can still manually join any network, the iPad will just stop notifying you of every time one is in range.

You now have information you can expand upon. Your iPad can be used for a number of things, like figuring out the weather or doing your banking. Eventually, you will likely find that there is nothing that you use more to find information that you need as it will be right at hand at any moment.
