iPads have taken our modern world by a storm, and it isn’t hard to grasp why. There are hundreds of unique functions that an iPad offers, but a simple laptop just doesn’t cut close. Read on below for some unique insider tips that can make using your new device a cinch!
Did you open too many apps? You can access all your open apps by tapping on the home button of your iPad and bar will appear at the bottom of you screen. Tap the app you want to access and repeat this process later to access your other running aps.
Some newer iPads have a mute button instead of a lock orientation one. If you prefer the lock orientation feature, you should go into your settings and tap on the general section. You will be able to choose which function you want to associate with this button. Save your changes when you are done.
VPN networks allow for access to remote servers. The network tab is where you can change anything related to VPN connections. You will then be asked for a username and a server address. If you don’t know what the server address is, contact the network administrator.
One of the great things about the iPad is that it allows you to quickly check your email. If you receive a large volume of emails throughout the day, it may actually be draining your battery. The device is configured to check for new messages frequently and automatically. Instead of setting it to notify you of new messages every few minutes, go into the Mail, Contacts and Calendars settings to adjust the frequency of mail checks.
You can change alert notifications that you get for Wi-Fi networks with ease. Go to Settings and then Wi-Fi and look for Ask to Join. Choose this and all those invitations will stop.
Don’t forget about multitasking gestures. There are three to be aware of. These include a four finger swipe (either to the left or to the right) to move seamlessly between apps that you are using and a four finger swipe to take you back to the home screen. These make your life easier, so take advantage of them.
Forums online are a great way to learn more about your iPad. Most any question that you may have has probably been asked and answered by someone before on a forum. All you have to do is check some forums to find out more about the iPad.
The new iPad and iPad 2 can be connected to an HD television. This can be done with an Apple Digital AV Adapter that is connected from the 30-pin Dock adapter to the HDMI port or even a regular Apple VGA Adaptor. Both of these iPads support video mirroring, which allows your whole Home screen to appear on the television, not just your videos.
