Now that you have an iPad, you have likely already run into issues with learning how best use it. Avoid letting it just be a game machine or an app machine. Your iPad can do all kinds of great things. This article offers you lots of great advice.
When your iPad freezes, you can reboot your device with a soft reset. Simply press down on the home button and the power button at the same time. This will make the device restart. If you just want to force an app to close, hold down just the home button for a few seconds.
If you don’t have a lot of time, avoid using your iPhone charger in order to charge your iPad. The two devices both operate at different wattages – the iPhone at 5 watts and the iPad at 10 watts. And their chargers follow suit. If you try to use an iPhone charger, you’ll have to wait a very long time for it to fully charge. Just use the original charger that was given with the iPad.
When you receive a new email, your iPad’s default setting is for you to see two lines prior to opening it. It can be helpful to see more of the content prior to opening. You can do this by choosing the mail icon in settings. Then click on Contacts, then click Calendar and then finally select Preview Mail Options so that you can see more at one time.
If you always prefer to read the owner’s manual for any new gadget, you will need to download the manual for the iPad. Most Apple products come with downloadable manuals.
It is a pain when you get an email and your iPad chimes every time. You can get rid of these alerts. Go into your settings, then choose the general tab. Select “Sounds” under this tab. This will allow you to adjust or turn off any notifications.
Open pages in new tabs. If you are using Safari, you can access this feature by tapping on a link and holding your finger there for a couple seconds till a menu of options appears. You can select the option to have another tab created with the new link content.
You can change the default search engine to something besides Google if you wish. To change these settings, navigate your way to your Safari setting and choose search engine. Now you can choose Bing or Yahoo as your default search engine. You can always change it back the same way.
You can quickly mute the iPad. The original iPad didn’t have a mute button. Previously, you could use the lock switch to either mute the audio or lock the orientation. To do a quick mute on your iPad now, press and hold down your volume-down button.
After you educate yourself on your iPad, you can use it the way you have always wanted. It’s an amazing device. Do not stop learning, and be sure to stay updated with the latest developments. The iPad is constantly updated with new apps.
