Don’t be fooled into thinking that iPads are only useful if you are into gaming or entertainment. There is really an application for anything you can possibly imagine. This includes home organization apps like personal budgets as well as recipe books, calculators, and anything else you can possibly imagine.

Never leave your iPad in a hot car or any similar environment. The intense heat saps devices of battery power. Exposing it to extreme heat and light can affect the battery’s ability to hold a charge for long periods. This type of damage is not covered under your warranty, making this a pricey mistake.

Delete All

Make the most of the “delete all” function that is incorporated within the iPad. For security reasons, you can program the tablet to delete all your sensitive data if your password is entered incorrectly 10 times. This is a perfect feature if your tablet has been lost or stolen and you keep extremely confidential details on it.

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.

If privacy is a big concern for you, you can set the iPad to erase its data if too many login attempts fail in a row. If they don’t get it right, the iPad is factory fresh again.

Organize iPad Screens

Create folders to better organize your iPad screens. Just get your screen to jiggle mode and then place the icons on each other if you would like them in the same folder and repeat until you have everything where you want it. This feature is great when you have twenty or more icons.

Get a USB keyboard. When you get a keyboard, you expand your abilities with the iPad. Keyboards are often more comfortable for posting on Facebook, forums and doing other online writing. That allows you to be more efficient. Some keyboards double as a case, so check out the options available.

If you are preparing to sync your iPad with your computer for the first time, choose wisely. If you indicate that you want to sync ALL of your pictures, videos, and music, be prepared. Depending on how much you have, it could take a long time to fully transfer everything over. Instead, use your discretion and only sync those items which you know you will need on the iPad.

Navigation

Unfortunately, the iPad does not have a free satellite navigation feature. However, the map’s direction features works great for driving, walking, and even bus directions. To use it, simply tap on “Directions”, found on the top left corner of the maps app, and you will be given a step-by-step guide to your destination.

There are many preloaded apps that you will probably never use. Since these apps are part of the OS, they can’t be removed. Create a folder for these apps and place it toward the bottom of your home screen. This lets you keep your focus on the things you use quite a bit.

You do not have to access the second screen of your keyboard if you need an apostrophe. You should instead tap and hold the exclamation point key and an apostrophe will appear for you to select. You can also make typing easier by purchasing a wireless keyboard or even a case with a built-in keyboard.

Did your iPad download get interrupted? Did you never receive that bonus item that was supposed to come with your new iTunes album? These are issues that are easily corrected. Just pick the Store menu on iTunes, and look for the option to check for any downloads you may have available.

VoiceOver

If you enjoy listening to audiobooks, you’ll love the VoiceOver application under Accessibility settings. This feature will read aloud any text displayed on the screen. Open your favorite e-book or blog and your iPad will read it to you! This is perfect for listening in your car or while you are doing work around the house.

When you are not using your iPad, make sure that your screen locks relatively quickly. Having your screen locked can keep your battery usage to a minimum, and thereby increase your battery lifespan. Look in General – Auto-Lock to find your settings, and set your device to lock as fast as it possibly for best results.
