You can wipe out your iPad battery pretty quick if you use the device to game, play music or stream video content for long periods of time. One way to extend the life of your battery charge is to adjust the screen brightness. Most of the day, you will not require your brightness on the highest setting.
The iPad’s iOS supports folders now. To use, hold down your finger on the app you want until it moves, drag that app atop another icon, and finally, let it go. This creates a folder with both apps inside. You can rename the folder, too.
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.
If your iPad freezes, perform a soft reset to reboot your device. Simultaneously hold down the Power and Home buttons for several seconds. This will cause the iPad to restart. Hold the home button down for several seconds to force-close an app.
People often make mistakes when typing on tablets, which leads to interesting typos in the resulting messages. Alternately, you can use the speech dictation feature of iPad. Just push the home button twice and then tap on the little microphone that you see. When you finish talking, hit it again and you will see it as text.
The factory default iPad setting is set to preview only two written lines from each email prior to you selecting it. If you would rather see more before you open it, there is an option. You can do this by choosing the mail icon in settings. First go to MAIL. Choose CONTACTS. Then go to CALENDARS. At this point, you can adjust preview mail options to get more lines.
The iPad comes with a few apps that you’re probably not going to want to use. The catch is that not all of the pre-loaded apps can be deleted. You can put them in a folder and location where they won’t be in your way. Then you have more screen space for useful apps.
When you take photos, don’t fall into the trap of holding the device by the sides. This will cause the shutter to move slightly and could potentially rattle when attempting to snap a picture. Try using the orientation lock. This will keep the shutter button within easy reach of your thumb. Once you’ve taken the pictures, use an application like Photoshop to edit them.
You can use the iPad’s lock key to orientate your screen or mute your volume. Please note, early iPad versions don’t have this feature. As long as you are running iOS 4.3 or higher, you have the option. Using the volume button on the side works to mute the iPad, too.
If you want your iPad battery life to last longer, turn down the illumination level of the screen brightness. This is very useful if you are out and waiting for an important email. In order to reduce the screen brightness, tap your Home icon twice and search for a sun icon.
Use tabs to multi-task your experience with web browsing. You don’t need to leave your current website to just follow a link. Hold the link and a list of options will appear. Then you can follow the new link in a brand new tab, and the current page stays open too.
