When accessing a remote server, your iPad uses a VPN network. If this is something that you need to do, just go to Settings, click Network, and then turn the VPN feature on. You will be able to put in a server address and then your user name. If you are not sure what the server address is, you should contact the person who administrate the VPN network.
You don’t have to tap the camera roll icon that’s in the bottom-left of your screen to see a video or photo you’ve just taken. Simply swipe your finger to the right to see the most recent video or photo. To view other photos you have stores, swipe toward the left side of the screen.
It is possible to expand the amount of preview text you get for emails. Go to your mail settings under the general heading. Switch this to show more text; perhaps five lines. You are now able to read more of one email in the inbox, and you can skim over them more effectively.
Unless you have a lot of time to recharge your iPad, avoid using an iPhone charger. Your iPad requires higher wattage to charge than an iPod does. The iPhone charger will take much longer to fully charge your iPad. To save time, charge your iPad with the included charger.
The factory setting for previewing an email shows you two lines before opening it. You may wish to view more of each message before you open it. Go to ‘mail’ under ‘settings’. Then choose Contacts, go to Calender, then pick the Preview option to increase the number of lines.
“Ding!” Does the chiming of your iPad whenever you receive another email drive you crazy? Are you aware that you can turn it off? You can access your settings in the general area. Once you get there, select Sounds. Within that option, you can turn the sound off or adjust it to be less annoying and suit your needs better.
You can use shortcuts for messages. For instance, if you tap your space bar two times when you’re typing a sentence, both a space and a period will be added at the end of your sentence. This can give you the ability to send messages in volume.
Wouldn’t you like to track a lost iPad? You can go to iCloud from Settings. Under the area labeled “Find My iPad,” enter your Apple ID and make sure the function is enabled. With this on, if you do lose the ipad, you can go to iCloud.com to find where it is located.
The iPad can be a great gadget that is able to be used for personal or business reasons. It is easy to fully reap the benefits of the iPad, but there are some things you need to know. Apply the tips you’ve just learned for the ideal iPad experience, and enjoy all it has to offer.
