Believe it or not, there is a lot that an iPad can do that many people do not know. Some say it is the tool of the future, while others think it is nothing more than a toy. If you are one of many who love it and want to use it to its full advantage, read on.
Did you accidentally launch a loud application? Mute the volume quick by pressing and then holding your volume down button. Do this until you can’t hear anything. If you find you are in need of the mute function often, you can configure your iPad’s lock button to work as a full-time mute button.
If you don’t have a lot of time, avoid using your iPhone charger in order to charge your iPad. Your iPad doesn’t have the same wattage as your iPhone which is 10 watts as opposed to 5 watts on the phone. Charging with the incorrect charger will delay the charge time. Charge your iPad with an iPad charger.
If you enjoy reading operating manuals and would like one for your iPad, you will need to download it. Most Apple products come with downloadable manuals.
Because iPads are expensive, it is a good idea to care for them properly. You can use a clear cover to protect your screen. These thin sheets of plastic provide extra protection for your iPad’s screen. When cleaning your iPad’s screen, use soft cloths that are just barely damp. Avoid using window cleaners or other types of cleaners to clean your iPad.
You can change the settings on your child’s iPad to block mature content, so you will not have to worry about them having access to unsuitable sites. Access the settings menu and limit any mature content that they can view. You can restrict mature content, including anything that has nudity or bad language.
Use FaceTime for phone numbers and emails. Your iPad default sets your FaceTime to include your initial email address, but you can set it up for more. If you need FaceTime to recognize additional numbers or addresses, it is possible to use the “settings” area to accomplish that.
iCloud is an exceptional utility for iPad users who are always online. You can store extra information this way without it using up space in the iPad’s flash memory. Put anything that you think is important on your cloud, in addition to keeping it on your tablet.
You probably already use your iPad for music, but have you used it for podcasts? They allow you to access a radio clip on just about anything you can think of. You might try listening to a podcast instead of music on your way to work. You are sure to find something that peaks your interest.
Whether you think that your iPad was created for business or pleasure does not matter, as it is really both if you want it to be. The piece above is simply the beginning of your iPad education. Continue to learn more and you can be an expert in time.
