So you have decided to purchase a new iPad. Getting one of these is a large choice, but it is a decision that can help you personally and professionally. If you want to truly benefit from owning an iPad, there is some information you may find useful. The following article can help.
Are you frustrated with your iPad because it wants you to join every wifi network it detects? You can turn this feature off by going to your settings. If you don’t want to be prompted again, just select Wi-Fi and the final page option to turn it off.
Go to settings and change them to stop the constant barrage of Wi-Fi network questions. There is an option labeled Ask to Join Networks. Select that and you will no longer be bugged by all of the incoming invites.
You should adjust your settings to preview more than a few lines of the emails you receive. Visit “settings” followed by “mail” and find the “preview” setting. Increase the number of lines listed. This will allow you to see more, which will make it faster for you to skim through your emails.
Tablet typing isn’t simple. There is a speech dictation function on your iPad. Hit the home button before tapping on the small microphone. Dictate your text and click the icon a second time when you are finished.
With the default setting you can see the first two lines of any emails before you open them. It can be helpful to see more of the content prior to opening. Go to ‘mail’ under ‘settings’. From Mail, choose Contacts, then go to Calendar where you can change the options to preview mail.
If you need Google Calendar to work with your iPad, get into your mail and then contacts followed by calendars. Select Add An Account. When prompted for the type, choose Other. Tap Add CallDAV Account and then enter your Google data. Next, you exit the settings section in order to access the calendar app. Everything you needed should be visible.
You can switch your search engine from Google, if you wish. To change it, you’ll need to open the Settings menu, tap on Safari, and then tap Search Engine. You can now decide to use other search engines like Bing if you prefer.
You can now do a quick mute your iPad. As you might know, previous iPad versions did not have this capability. Now, you can mute the sound easily with very simple steps. Just tap and hold volume-down to quickly mute sound.
If you spend a lot of time online, you will find the cloud servers your iPad can access very useful. This is great to store data without taking a lot of space on the hard drive of your iPad. Make sure your important documents are backed up on your device and the cloud.
If you sync with iTunes, you can share documents with a desktop or laptop computer. It’s so simple to share to your iPad now. Things become even easier as you are able to email your PDF’s across the Internet and download them on a remote system.
It is natural to hold the sides of the iPad when taking a photo. Sadly, this leads to blurry photos. Give use of the orientation lock a try. This helps your thumb reach the shutter button easier. You can edit your image or videos after recording them.
A bright screen drains your battery, so turn down the brightness. This is really important if you expect anything important such as a message or email. To change the brightness, just double tap your Home button and touch the icon shaped like the sun.
The iPad is very versatile and can be useful for business and pleasure. However, it’s important that you learn all you can on using the iPad so that you can get your money’s worth out of it. These tips will help you make the right decisions when it comes to your new iPad.
