It never hurts to learn more about the electronic devices you own, and the iPad is no exception. There is so much an iPad can do. Here are a few of the most convenient tips and tricks compiled especially for the iPad. Use the ones that work for you.

A bright screen drains your battery, so turn down the brightness. The device will automatically adjust the screen brightness depending on the environmental conditions, or you can turn it down manually. In order to reduce the screen brightness, tap your Home icon twice and search for a sun icon.

Your email signature comes factory-set to a standard iPad message. This is a bit lame, but many people don’t bother to change it. It is possible, however, to customize your signature. Simply go to Settings>Mail>Contacts>Calendar>Signature, and change it to something more interesting.

If you need to mute an iPad, try this simple trick. All you need to do is press and hold volume down for a couple of seconds. That’s faster than adjusting the volume repeatedly. Press it down when you want the volume to go back to normal.

If you don’t want your children accessing mature Internet sites, it is possible to block them. This can be done through the settings on your iPad. You can block mature films and anything else that is labeled adult and/or has bad language.

Viewing PDF documents on an iPad is very easy. You can easily move PDFs and Word documents back and forth from the iPad to a computer, too. Functionality like the above works well for businesses, students, and workers alike.

Join an iPad forum online. These communities will help you learn strategies to get the most out of your iPad. You can also share the things you know about the iPad. If you’re having any problems using your iPad, you should be able to find solutions on one of these forums.

You can add Google Calendar to the app for the Calendar. All you need to do is go into your Settings, click on Mail, choose Contacts, and then hit the Calendar option. Hit the Add Account option and hit Other. Finally, click Add CalDAV Account to get the log-in information request to pop up.

Be sure to set up “Find My iPad” so that you can find the iPad if you misplace it. It shows you exactly where you can find your iPad. Some people do not like the phone to track where there are, but this feature definitely has more benefits than negatives.

It’s simple to find out which apps are currently running on your iPad. Press the Home button twice to view all of your current apps. If you tap on a app in the bar, you can quickly switch to it. When you no longer want to see it, swipe downwards to eliminate the bar from your screen.

Are you sick of typing? Use the feature for dictation instead. On the keyboard you can tap the key that looks like a microphone, say what you want out loud, and then click it again. Click the microphone a second time to translate your words into text.

It is very important that you know how to take care of your iPad. First of all, keep your iPad out of direct sunlight and don’t leave it locked inside your hot car. Heat degrades battery performance. Keeping your iPad away from water is rule number two. You should also get a quality padded cover to protect your iPad from shocks and dust.

Determine whether you wish your lock key to just lock tablet orientation or mute sounds. Please note, early iPad versions don’t have this feature. Any iPad that runs on iOS 4.3 or above will have this feature. The volume decrease button is also a mute button.

“Ding!” Does the chiming of your iPad whenever you receive another email drive you crazy? Are you aware that this can be turned off? Go to the Settings and select the General tab. Once you get there, select Sounds. You can stop the sound for new mail or at least turn it down.

The iPad is not only great for music, but it is great for podcasts too. These are radio presentations that are between two minutes and two hours in length, and they cover a variety of subjects. If you do not want to listen to music anymore while commuting, try some podcasts. There are many different stations and topics that you have to choose from.

If you’re having issues figuring out how to use your iPad, sign up to an online forum. Most any question that you may have has probably been asked and answered by someone before on a forum. Look into forum archives to find huge amounts of helpful information.

Just double-tap any text you want to copy on your iPad. It can be difficult to copy an entire paragraph using that method. By tapping your text four times, you’ll be able to copy the entire paragraph. This not only works for paragraphs, but it also works for the URL bar and addresses.

The battery life on your iPad needs to be managed to maximize functionality. Don’t leave it in a hot car during the summer. Keep the screen brightness turned down. When you are not using the Internet, set it to airplane mode. Switching Push to off can also help. Additionally, you can do things manually, which can achieve the same effect.

Are you aware you don’t need to use the iPad’s keyboard? The small keyboard on an iPad can be difficult to type on. Just buy a BlueTooth keyboard for use with iPad. This is of great use to professionals and students.

Copying and pasting text the iPad is simple. Press and hold the text and press Select. Tap again when the text has been highlighted in yellow, and then choose copy. To paste, hold your finger where you’d like the text pasted and, when the menu appears, choose “paste.”

The Apple iPad is a fine device, and it is fun to use. You can improve your experience with some helpful tips. With these tips on hand, you will have more fun with your iPad. Start working through them, and have fun with your iPad!
