Things You Did Not Know You Can Do On Your Ipad

The iPad is so new that it can be hard to know all it does. Don’t let it just become an app and gaming machine. Your iPad can do all kinds of great things. You can learn a lot from the following article.

You don’t have to tap the camera roll icon that’s in the bottom-left of your screen to see a video or photo you’ve just taken. Instead, swipe right and your picture is there. Swipe toward the left and your previous pictures will appear.

Even if you are in a rush, don’t make the mistake of charging your iPad with the charger for your iPhone. The iPad charger is a 10 watt charger. The iPhone charger is a 5 watt charger. If you use your iPhone charger for your iPad, it will take forever to charge. You would be better off using the one that came with the iPad.

Do you have trouble hunting and pecking on smaller devices? A lot of people do not like typing on the iPad. The iPad also has a button for speech dictation. Hit the home button before tapping on the small microphone. After you have dictated your piece, tap the icon one more time and your text will display.

The email app will show you the first two lines of an email’s text unless you change this setting. It can help to see more content before opening it. Go to ‘mail’ under ‘settings’. Then click on Contacts, then click Calendar and then finally select Preview Mail Options so that you can see more at one time.

Google Calendar

If you need Google Calendar to work with your iPad, get into your mail and then contacts followed by calendars. Switch to Add An Account and then tap the Other button. Hit your “Add CalDAV” icon and add in the relevant Google information. After you’ve done this, leave the settings, then tap the calendar app. All of the information from your Google Calendar should now be at your fingertips.

If you lose the iPad, do you want to know how to find it? You can go to iCloud from Settings. Fill in your ID when prompted, which will log your system into the database. Then you can visit iCloud.com to find your iPad.

You are now able to quickly mute your iPad. In its first incarnation, the iPad lacked a specific mute button. All newer iPads now allow you to mute your iPad’s sound. Now, in order to quickly mute your iPad, simply press the volume-down button and hold it there.

If you bought the iPad for your child and are concerned about them seeing mature content, you can change the settings to block that kind of content. All you have to do is turn the parental control feature on through the settings menu. You can block any material that has been labeled as having adult content and bad language.

You can copy and paste easily. Just hold the text and choose Select. Next, choose “copy” from the popup memu. After that, go to the place where you want to paste the text and hold again. This will cause a menu to pop up, displaying Paste. Tap it. You can also highlight a whole paragraph; tap it around four times.

Now that you know a bit more about the workings of your new iPad, you are all set to start exploring this amazing piece of technology. It can do nearly anything! Read all you can and ask questions of experts. Your iPad will become your best friend, and you will enjoy exploring the constant new apps that become available.
