Are Your Getting The Most From Your IPad? You Can With These Tips!

iPads aren’t as simple to use as they seem. You simply need to press the screen, put an app on the device and start, right? For an upgrade to your experience, take a look at the suggestions in the helpful article below.

Do you get irked each time you get a message from your iPad wanting to know if you want to join a new wifi network that it has just picked up? You can go to your settings and disable this feature. Select that tab that says “Wi-Fi” and choose the option that is last on the page. This will stop you from getting prompts.

Watch your currently running apps carefully. A good number of iPad apps are able to run seemingly in the background at the same time that you are otherwise engaged. To check what is running on the iPad, just double click the Home button. This will show you the current apps at the bottom. Swipe your finger in a downward motion to close the window.

Click Settings, Mail, Contacts and Calendars to add Google Calendar to your iPad. You will see an option that lets you Add An Account. Tap the Other option that comes up. Select Add CalDAV Account and then insert your Google credentials. Then, back out of that menu and choose the calendar app. There you have it!

Search Engine

It is possible to change your search engine from Google. Visit your settings, pick “Safari,” and then open up “Search Engine.” You can then switch to Yahoo or Bing if you like them better than Google.

Access your email and phone numbers by setting up FaceTime. When you set up FaceTime, it will remember the email you use to access iTunes, but additional emails can be added. If you find more emails or things like phone numbers that FaceTime should recognize, go to the settings on your iPad and set them up.

Did you know that the iPad has the ability to cut and paste snippets of text? Hold down on your text if you want to copy it. A second tap will highlight a selection of text and allow you to choose the “copy” option. To paste the text, tap, hold and choose Paste.

There are many preloaded apps that you will probably never use. Some of these cannot be deleted. However, you do have the option to move these unwanted apps into a single folder, which can then be stored out of the way. This helps keep them out of your way.

You may be tempted to hold your iPad by its sides when you take pictures. Sadly, this leads to blurry photos. Locking the orientation is a great solution for this common problem. Doing this will allow the shutter button to be a thumb’s distance away. Once you’ve captured the photo, the image editor can be used to rotate your images or videos.

Decide if you would would like the lock key act as a mute for the sound of your device or lock the orientation. If you had an older iPad model, you likely know that this is a new feature. If you are running the operating system iOS at 4.3 or later, you can. Another option if you want to mute your device is to press and hold the volume down button.

The iPad is easy, but you can really use it when you know what it can do. With this article you can learn to make your iPad even more useful. The iPad can do almost anything you want, if you know how to use it.
