If you are a mother, doctor, student or even a bum, there is a use for the iPad for you. It can do so much, but many people don’t know about all the features. Check out this article to get some of the insider tips and tricks and maximize your iPad.
Buy a good-quality case and screen protector for your iPad. You probably paid a lot of money for your iPad, so you need to ensure that you keep it protected against damage. A good-quality case will protect your iPad from minor accidental falls, while a screen protector will stop the screen from getting scratched.
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.
Monitor how much you spend on iPad apps. There are many, many helpful apps and it is easy to go overboard. So, you need to watch your spending.
There is a feature you can use on your phone that will erase all the data on the phone if someone inputs the correct passcode. While this may seem like a good idea, be careful. You may put the wrong passcode yourself and end up losing all of your information.
Control what notifications you see. Tired of every app bothering you with notifications, causing you to miss important ones? Head to the Notifications section of your Settings menu. Here you can determine which of your apps are allowed to send you pop up notifications and which ones cannot. This can put a halt to noisy apps and make it easier to see your important messages.
You can access your Google Calendar in the Calendar app on the iPad by choosing, “Mail,” “Contacts,” and “Calendars” under the Settings menu. Go to Add An Account and tap Other. Hit Add CalDAv Account and punch in all of your Google information. Then navigate out of settings and click on the calendar application. All that you need should be right there.
Do you need to switch from one app to another? You should activate the multitasking gestures in the general tab of your settings. You will then be able to swipe left or right to switch apps, swipe up to see your multitasking bar and pinch your fingers if you want to access your home.
You can easily take a screenshot using your iPad. Press the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously. This will take a screenshot and save it with your other pictures.
If you need to mute the audio on the iPad, do the following. All you need to do is to press and hold the button that decreases the iPad’s volume level. This is a lot easier than constantly adjusting the volume controls. To restore your volume, hold down the volume down button again.
