The iPad is the hot item that everyone is discussing. You would be surprised on what you are missing if you don’t yet own one of these. Regardless of what you want to use your iPad for, you need to learn how to use it. Look here to this post to find some great tips to use.
When you are looking into purchasing an iPad you need to consider a few things to get the best price possible. If you want to use the iPad outside of your home or office, then you will want to purchase the more expensive version that includes 3g as well as WIFI.
Never leave your iPad in a hot car or any similar environment. The intense heat saps devices of battery power. Exposing it to extreme heat and light can affect the battery’s ability to hold a charge for long periods. This type of damage is not covered in your warranty, making this a pricey mistake.
To protect your sensitive data the iPad has a feature that will erase all data if the password is entered incorrectly ten times. To access this feature go to Settings and click Passcode Lock; then click Erase Data. This privacy feature will restore your iPad to its factory default settings.
If you own an iPad, it is a good idea to make a backup. You can force iTunes to make a back up so that your data is properly saved. Go to iTunes and right-click on devices list and select backup. You can also use the same feature in iCloud to backup as well.
Wi-Fi notifications can quickly become irritating, so change them in the settings application. An option that asks you if you want to join networks exists and it can be changed. Simply select this option, and then, those pesky invitations will stop.
Set a password to keep your information private. As long as the person that finds your iPad does not guess the code within 10 attempts your information will be safe.
To include Google calender events on the iPad, select Mail > Contacts > Calenders. You need to go to the area that allows you to add an additional account, then hit Other. Tap Add CallDAV Account and then enter your Google data. After you’ve done this, leave the settings, then tap the calendar app. You should all be there.
Get a screen protector for your iPad before you begin to use the device. While the screens on the iPads are of very high quality, they can still be damaged relatively easily if they are not protected. The smallest grain of dirt rubbed across the screen with your finger can result in a large scratch.
Are your spotlight searches taking too long? You can restrict the folders that are searched by going into your settings. Tap on general and select Spotlight search. You can then choose which folders will be included in your search, which is very useful if you only use this search feature to find media content.
These tips and tricks are going to help you use your iPad more efficiently. Use them often, and you’ll have a better time with your iPad. Do not forget to save this information, as it will probably take a while before it becomes second nature.
