The iPad contains all kinds of features that make it great for everyone. If you grab the iPad, you will see how it will better. This advice helps you to get the upper hand when it comes to using your iPad.
Did you accidentally start an app that is noisy? Press and hold the volume down feature until you get to mute. Alternately, you could configure the button labeled LOCK ORIENTATION to use instead of the mute button.
Choose between Orientation Lock and Mute. Older versions of the iPad featured an “Orientation Lock” button on the side of the device. The button remained on later versions, but its function was switched to “Mute.” If you preferred the older function, you can access a setting in the General Settings menu to set it back to its original function.
Even though your iPad does not come with a user manual, you can download one for free. Apple has a free PDF on their website containing the User Guide for the iPad. It also comes as an e-book you can read in iBooks, which is a free downloadable app available in the App Store.
Many iPad games and apps have a feature that notifies you whenever some action is performed. For example, you may receive a notification from Words With Friends that it is your turn to play, or you might have a Twitter alert that tells you someone has re-tweet something. Disable these notifications unless they are absolutely necessary. These frequent updates can shorten the life of your iPad’s battery.
If you enjoy frequently using smiley face or alternate emoticons, have the Emoji keyboard. To get this keyboard, tap settings, then General, and finally, Keyboard. Tap the international keyboards’ icon and look for Emoji. To add it, all you have to do is simply tap it. The next time you see the onscreen keyboard, it will be there.
Did you lose your iPad? If you use the Apple product iCloud, you will be able to located your iPad or your iPhone. Go to the iCloud website, log in and you will be able to locate your lost iPad or phone on a map. You can also access this feature on another iPad.
If you want to quickly mute your iPad, just follow this simple step. Just press and hold the volume button down for a few seconds. This is a fast solution when you need the iPad to be silent for whatever reason. To restore your volume, hold down the volume down button again.
If you have some recently purchased apps from the app store you want to hide, it’s quite easy! Open up the App Store and click on the ‘purchased’ tab on the bottom of your screen. It should give you a list of apps and choose the one you wish to hide. Swipe over the app or right over it, and it should now grey out over the ‘installed’ button. A red button will pop up and you will now have the option to hide the app.
