Though you may not know it yet, the iPad may be your new best friend. All you need is the right information to assist you in getting ahead. By reading this article, you’ll learn how to properly use your iPad.

Your iPad is easily capable of taking a screenshot. Press Home and then Sleep/Wake. There will be a flash on the screen and an audible click. That is how you know the picture was taken. You can find your screenshots in your photos, where they are automatically saved for future use.

There is a way to disable the keyboard if you do not want to use it. It can get difficult to type on the small keyboard that’s projected on the screen. Instead, give a Bluetooth keyboard a try. You can type as easily as you can with a laptop by using this method.

Are you noticing an increasing number of scratches on your screen? If so, use a screen protector. This not only saved the iPad from damage, but it also keeps you from developing small micro-scratches on your fingers.

To copy text on your iPad is simple; you just need to double click any keyword. Copying a paragraph won’t work well that way. If you want to copy the entire paragraph, tap the text four times. In addition to paragraphs, this method works well for the URL bar and addresses.

Kids need to be protected from the Internet. First visit your SETTINGS menu. Next, go to GENERAL. Then go to RESTRICTIONS. You can then get to where you can enable setting restrictions. This is going to keep your kid from seeing any content that is registered or tagged as adult in nature. This restricts all adult content to keep your child safe.

Does the notifications to join a Wi-Fi network annoy you? If so, there is a way to turn this off. Under Wi-Fi in the Settings menu, turn the “Ask to Join Network” switch to “Off.” This doesn’t mean you can’t join networks anymore. You can; however, you are not going to get a million notifications.

If your iPad contains valuable personal information, be sure to back this information up in case of theft. Set up your iPad so that it will erase data in the event that a criminal attempts to access it. Under the “Password Lock” feature, select the general settings tab, and click to delete information if an incorrect password is entered into your device 10 times.

It is easy to take care of your iPad battery. Keep it away from very hot locations, like sitting in a car in direct sunlight. Keep the screen brightness level at a low setting. If you are not using the Internet, set it to airplane settings. Deactivating Push is useful as well. It’s still possible to download your email and calendar information by hand, after all.

The volume buttons may not work. If this is happening, go to settings > general > sounds. Turn Change with Buttons On if need be. There is also a volume slider here where you can fine-tune the volume.

In Safari, in order to get back to the top of a page, just click at the beginning of the title window. Generally, people will scroll to the top, but this is time consuming. Simply giving your title window a tap will allow you to go quite a bit faster.

Have you ever seen a picture on the web while using your iPad that you’d like to save? Making this happen is quite easy indeed. Just tap directly on the image and hold it for a second. This will give you the option to save it. The saved image will be on your iPad in the Photos folder, ready for whenever you need it.

If your television is an Apple, you can stream content from your iPad to view on it. Use the Airplay icon to stream whatever you are looking at to your TV in a matter of seconds.

Before letting other people search the web with your iPad’s Safari search, make sure that you clear your history. Someone else could see something that you intended to be a surprise or wanted to keep private. Go to the default website if you do not want your device to load your last page.

You may find your iPad doesn’t charge efficiently when connected with the front panel of your computer. In this case, switch to the back. USB ports are not created equally. The ones near the front of your computer usually contain lower power than the ones in the back. If this still doesn’t work, buy an outlet USB adapter.

It is not hard to share podcasts with all of your family and friends. You can even do it while you are still listening to the podcast. Simply push in the Email button when you’re listening to the podcast. You will get the chance to choose the receivers and you will be able to send it right away.

Find the bookmarks on your iPad easier. Just keep your Bookmarks bar open constantly. This involves going to Safari, finding the settings and selecting the “on” position for your bookmarks bar. This allows you to avoid doing all the clicking you had to do in the past simply to visit your favorite websites.

Consider purchasing an external keyboard for your iPad. When you type a lot, be it in a texting app or word processing, this will make the job easier. You can find keyboards that connect to the iPad as a wireless device, and these work better than the keyboard that comes stock with the iPad.

Google calender can be placed into the Calendar application. Go into the settings, tap on mail, choose contacts and calendar. Add the account through this and click on the Other option after completed. Click on Add CalDAV Account before putting your Google log-in there.
