It would be difficult to argue against the fact that the iPad is a great piece of technology. It is portable, multifunctional and easy to use with the right information. Finding that information can sometimes be the difficult part, though, as there are many different sources to turn to with sometimes confusing directions. This article is a great place to start. Here we have listed some of the best tips, in an easy to read format and readily available for you.

If you haven’t ever had a tablet before, you may be overwhelmed. The iPad is incredibly user-friendly and almost impossible to screw up. Just start playing with it and see how much you can figure out alone. Even the most computer inept should be able to handle an iPad.

Here is a quick tip to finding text on a page with your iPad. When you are in Safari, type your search word into the Google box. This will give you a list of suggestions. Near the bottom of these suggestions, you will see “on this page” and tap on it to show the word on the page you are viewing.
Your device will not charge through a USB port unless you have a high power port. High power ports are usually found on the back of a desktop computer and most laptops do not have one. This also means that USB docks will not charge your device unless you own a powered dock.
Do you feel distracted by seeing the battery charge percent icon on your iPad screen? If, so you can turn it off. At the outset, access the Settings Menu. Go to General, then Usage. In this menu, you’re able to turn off the display of battery percentage.
Did you know that you can create folders on your iPad? Just tap any app and hold it until it starts to begin jiggling. When it does, drag the app over top of any other icon and let it go. The iPad will then make a folder for you with both of the apps involved inside.
Do you want to make sure everything you bookmark on your computer is also bookmarked in Safari on your device? This is easy to do using iTunes. On the Info tab, you go to the Other option and select the option to sync your bookmarks with Safari or your other preferred browser.
To easily copy and paste, all that you need to do is press and hold the text and choose Select. Then click Copy, go where you want to paste, then tap again. A menu will come up that will let you click on paste. For an entire paragraph, you need to press four times.
Would you like your device to display a slideshow of all your pictures when it is not in use? This is easy to do. After you lock the screen, you will see a picture icon appear in the bottom right corner. Simply touch this icon, and the iPad will start the slideshow.
It is very easy for you to email other people photos while using your iPad. All you have to do is locate the photo you want to send and press the button located in the right-hand corner. There is an option there that will allow you to send the photo to anyone you want.
Most of the time, you will hold your device on the edges when you take photographs. This will move the shutter button, which can wobble when shooting a photo. Use the orientation lock on your iPad. The shutter button will be easier to access since it will be near your thumb. After taking the photo, just use an image editor to rotate the videos or images afterward.
Wait until accessories are on sale until you buy. Your iPad comes with what you need up front – the iPad and a charging cable – and everything else can wait. If you want a standing charger, case, keyboard, screen protection or any such item, they go on sale frequently online, so keep your eyes peeled and be patient.
Safety Feature on iPad
Although you may deem it unnecessary, it is smart putting a safety feature on the iPad. You never know when you may accidentally lose it, and it generally has access to a lot of secure information like emails, phone numbers, addresses and possibly even bank information.
