iPads give you many functions for use once you know them and have learned them. When you first grab an iPad, it can be entirely overwhelming understanding how it all works. Put the following tips and advice about using your iPad to good use and discover just how unbelievable it truly is!
To protect your sensitive data the iPad has a feature that will erase all data if the password is entered incorrectly ten times. To access this feature go to Settings and click Passcode Lock; then click Erase Data. This privacy feature will restore your iPad to its factory default settings.
Are you getting too many notifications? If some apps send notifications, you do not need, you should go to your settings and tap on notifications. You will then have access to a complete list of your apps and be able to choose which notifications you want to receive.
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.
Learn all the things the side switch can do on your iPad. It is a handy way to turn your audio alerts on and off without affecting your playback sound. You can also use it to lock your screen so that it does not automatically rotate. If you want to use it for some other function, you can change this in the General Settings menu.
A great feature of the iPad is the zoom features. You can easily zoom in and out of any website by pinching with two fingers on the screen. This will help you select tiny links or features when they are larger. You can also double-tap on any image or text to enable auto-zoom.
Did you know you could print the documents you have on your iPad? You need to purchase an AirPrint ready printer. While you are near the printer, access your share menu and select printer. If you have a Mac computer, you can download an app called Printopia to send your printing jobs to a printer connected to your Mac.
If you are preparing to sync your iPad with your computer for the first time, choose wisely. If you indicate that you want to sync ALL of your pictures, videos and music, be prepared. Depending on how much you have, it could take a long time to fully transfer everything over. Instead, use your discretion and only sync those items which you know you will need on the iPad.
You can share the documents or music that you have with your iPad and other devices. It’s easy to share your documents and being able to interact with virtually any computer through iTunes cannot be beaten. You can email PDF’s and then download them to another computer.
If you are one of those people that likes sharing a lot of the information you find enjoyable with your friends, there is a very easy way to share podcasts. All you have to do is press the Email button while the podcast is open and email it to whoever you like.
The iPad can truly be customized to meet all of your needs. When you’re able to use this device correctly, you’ll get more value for the money you spent on it. Implement what you’ve just learned, and take advantage of everything the iPad can do for you.
