Do you love to play games? Are you a student? Do you work all of the time? Are you in the process of losing weight? Pregnant? The iPad can make every one of these things even better! Apps are plentiful, but so are the iPad’s functions. Follow the tips in this article and learn all that the iPad has to offer.
The latest operating system, iOS, allows you to use folders on your iPad. To do this, press and hold on an app for a while, and it will start to jiggle. Then, drag the app over the top of a different icon and release. This will combine the applications that you have into a single folder. You can rename these folders.
Watch your currently running apps carefully. Lots of iPad applications can work in the background as you complete other tasks. If you want to see what else is running on your iPad, just double-click the Home button. Everything that is open will be displayed in a bar located underneath all of your other information. After you see what is running, close the bar by swiping downward.
Go to settings and change them to stop the constant barrage of Wi-Fi network questions. Go to your Settings and access the Wi-Fi tab. This will reduce the frustration that you face with your iPad.
You do not need to tap the small camera roll icon found in the bottom left corner to look at a picture or video you have just taken. Swipe to your right using a finger, and there is your video or picture. After this, swipe left to see older content.
Shortcuts make it far easier for you to send messages. For example, tapping the space bar twice when typing a sentence will add a period and a space. You won’t need to labor over your messages using this method.
It’s very important that you know what you’re doing when you’re taking care of your iPad. First of all, keep your iPad out of direct sunlight and don’t leave it locked inside your hot car. Also, your battery will be drained faster than usual. Also, be sure to avoid placing your iPad in places where its electronic components could be damaged by liquids. A cover is a wise investment for your iPad.
Muting your iPad can come in handy when needed. The original iPads did not have a mute button. Previously, you could use the lock switch to either mute the audio or lock the orientation. Now, in order to quickly mute your iPad, simply press the volume-down button and hold it there.
Hold down on your text if you want to copy and paste it. If you move to another application, you can paste the desired text by tapping again. A pop-up menu will appear, from which you should tap ‘paste.’ To do this with a whole paragraph, you’ll need to press four times.
You now have the basic knowledge needed to get started. Your iPad will always accompany you and will help you keep track of everything from your growing baby to the weather report. You’ll find that you grow attached to the device because it combines so many different technologies, and the tips can help you use it to its full potential.
