Everybody–young and old–has an iPad these days. It’s great for kids to play games or do homework and for adults to keep shopping lists or create presentations for work. There are limitless opportunities for everyone. The following article will discuss many of the amazing features offered on this cutting-edge device.
You can get to all the running apps on your tablet. Double clicking on your Home button will bring up a bar along the bottom of the screen displaying all of your currently running apps. You can scroll through the applications or choose one of them. Swipe downwards to hide the bar again.
A soft reset will allow you to resume using your iPad if the screen is frozen. Hold both the home and power buttons to get your device to reload. This will cause your device to 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 iPad carries 10 watts as opposed to just 5 watts for the iPhone. It takes much longer to fully charge the iPad with a iPhone charger. Use the original charger instead.
If you would like to include your Google Calender on your iPad’s calender app, go to mail, then contacts and then calenders. You will see an option that lets you Add An Account. Tap the Other option that comes up. Select “Add CalDAV” and enter the credentials you use for your Google account. After you’ve done this, leave the settings, then tap the calendar app. Your information should now be there!
By using tabs to open websites, it’s easy to keep all the pages you need open. 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. Then just pick to open the page in a brand new tab. You’ll still have your other page handy.
There are many features that you will need to be aware of that iTunes offers. One of the more interesting is iTunes U, or iTunes University. This feature includes some great educational podcasts.
There are many preloaded apps that you will probably never use. Sadly, many can’t be deleted. You can put them away in a folder and they will not get in your way. This lets you focus on the ones you use most.
Taking pictures often means turning the iPad to the side. This will move the shutter button, which can wobble when shooting a photo. Give the orientation lock a try. The orientation lock is right near your thumb, so it will be easy to reach. The photo can be rotated in image editor afterwards.
By now, you’re probably itching to snatch up the nearest iPad and try everything you’ve just learned. It’s an incredible device and you are sure to enjoy it. The new features are great to expand the possibilities. You will be amazed at what all this little piece of technology can do.
