Few things are more exciting than getting a new iPad. However, it can be really frustrating to figure out how to optimize your use of it. The following article will detail some interesting tips and tricks on using your new iPad more effectively, and just how to have more fun with it in general.
You can reboot your iPad when it freezes by doing a soft reset. Hold both the home and power buttons to get your device to reload. You’ll see the screen go black and then a white apple will appear. If you simply want to make an app close, depress the home button by itself for several seconds.
Turn off your Wi-Fi when not in use. Your iPad will constantly search for Wi-Fi signals even when you don’t want it to. That is, if your Wi-Fi is turned on. When you are out and about and don’t need Wi-Fi, simply turn it off. It will extend your battery.
It is important to know how to provide proper care for your iPad. First of all, keep your iPad out of direct sunlight and don’t leave it locked inside your hot car. Your battery will slowly start to hold less of a charge if it gets hot too much. Also, don’t put your iPad near places that are damaging to electronics, like chemicals or liquids. You should also get a quality padded cover to protect your iPad from shocks and dust.
Don’t forget about multitasking gestures. There are three to be aware of. These include a four finger swipe (either to the left or to the right) to move seamlessly between apps that you are using and a four finger swipe to take you back to the home screen. These make your life easier, so take advantage of them.
Most people know that an SD card can be plugged into the iPad directly from their camera to view photos. Many people do not know that a connection kit can be purchased to connect your camera to your iPad. You can search the online Apple Store to find one for your camera.
An iPad is truly exciting to own, but only if you can figure out how to make use of its numerous features and fancy apps. Hopefully this article has given you some great ideas on how to really get into this fantastic little machine and make the most of it. Enjoy!
