Making Your IPad Work For You: A Guide

What can be said about your iPad that you haven't already learned? Some look at it as the future of technology and others think of it as a plaything. If you are in either camp, you will soon find that it is both. Read the article below to find out how.

When you use the iPad to stream a lot of media content, such as watching movies or listening to music, you will notice that the battery does not last as long. One of the ways you can extend the time your battery retains its charge is by adjusting the brightness of your screen. In most cases, there is no need to keep the maximum brightness level to read, surf the Internet or tinker with apps.

The newest iPad iOS has folders. Just tap an app and hold it until it wiggles, then drag it over the app you wish to pair it with. Instantly they will both merge into a folder named after their categories. Then, you can rename the folder.

Be aware of any apps that constantly run on your device. A lot of iPad apps are designed to run as background processes. Double-click Home to see what's currently running. A bar with open and recently-used apps will appear at the bottom. To eliminate this feature, simply swipe down and you will be back to the normal setting.

There is an easier way to view the video or picture you have just taken besides the film icon in the bottom corner. All you have to do is swipe the screen right and your video or picture will appear. You can look at previous pictures by going left.

If you need to charge up in a hurry, do not use an iPhone charger on the iPad. All iPhone chargers uses only 5 watts, while an iPad charger uses 10 watts. Although you can charge your iPad with an iPhone charger, it generally takes longer. Use the charger that comes with your iPad for best results.

Lots of people say that typing on a tablet is difficult; however, this problem continues to improve. There is a speech dictation function on your iPad. Tap the Home button two times, and then tap the Microphone button. When you are finished you just hit the microphone again and the text will appear on the screen.

Even if you only use your iPad as a toy, you can get more out of it with these tips. This article will provide you with great knowledge on your iPad's usability. Keep reading and learning and soon you'll be an iPad expert!
