Even though you may want to use the iPad a lot, you might not know what to do with it because the technology is so new. Avoid letting it just be a game machine or an app machine. There are so many wonderful things you can do with your iPad. If you’re ready to learn more about how the iPad can be used to entertain and empower, read on.
When you use your iPad for listening to music, playing games, or streaming movies, your battery life will be significantly decreased. Lowering the brightness of the screen can help keep your battery charge. You probably won’t even miss using the brightest setting.
Accessing the running apps is easy. Just push the Home button twice in succession to show an icon for each running app. Just click the app you wish to switch to, if you so desire. Just swipe downwards on the screen to remove it.
Keep your bill under control by tracking the amount you spend on iPad apps. When you have an iPad, you can run up your iTune’s bill quickly because it contains your credit card information and it only takes a few clicks to buy an app. Because of this, you need to keep track of what you spend.
Do you get irritated when your iPad asks if you want to join new Wi-Fi networks? You are able to get rid of this if you go into settings. You can easily turn this off in the Wi-Fi settings.
Pay close attention to the apps that you run on your iPad. Some apps can continue to run simultaneously with other things on the iPad. If you want to know which apps are currently active, all you need to do quickly tap the home button two times in succession. A bar shows up near the bottom of the screen that will list currently active apps. When you are finished, swipe down to make the bar disappear.
In your inbox, you may want to see more than the first few lines. Go to mail in settings and then preview. Select “5 lines” for example. This way, you can view more of the email, speeding up your skim-through process.
Even if you are in a rush, don’t make the mistake of charging your iPad with the charger for your iPhone. The iPad requires a larger wattage requirement than the iPhone. If you use that iPhone battery charger, it will be twice the time to charge. This is why the charger that comes with the iPad is the best to use.
If you don’t want anyone to access your personal information, your iPad can be set to delete all data. This feature erases everything recorded on your phone after someone has tried and failed 10 times.
Now that you’ve taken the time to learn more information about using your iPad, you should be able to take care of your business more efficiently. It, quite literally, does just about everything! Continue learning, and be sure to keep abreast of the latest developments. Your iPad will become your best friend, and you will enjoy exploring the constant new apps that become available.
