How can the iPad be made even better? Can this even be possible? This article endeavors to show you a few tips and tricks which will make your iPad an amazing computing machine, whether you want to use it to take high quality video to post on Youtube or to surf the web while in the bathtub. If you are new to using an iPad you may initially think it cannot do much. Don’t be fooled, you simply need to start looking through apps. The real capabilities of an iPad come from the additional applications that you are able to download and use directly from your device. If at all possible, use Wi-Fi to connect your iPad to the Internet instead of 3G. Using 3G continuously, you can expect to get around 9 hours of battery life. With Wi-Fi, you can enjoy your iPad for even longer before it needs a charge. If you don’t need to connect to the Internet, disable both. You can display your Ipad screen on a HD TV. All you need is an Apple digital AV adapter or an Apple VGA adapter depending on the kind of TV you have. This first product can be plugged into an HDMI port while the second one requires a VGA port. If you’re battery is draining fast than you’d like, turn off some notifications and location based items. Your iPad is constantly monitoring where you are (as long as it’s on wifi, 3G, or LTE). This monitoring sucks the life out of your battery. If you don’t need the features, then you can extend your battery time with a few flicks of a button. Get a screen protector for your iPad before you begin to use the device. While the screens on the iPads are of very high quality, they can still be damaged relatively easily if they are not protected. The smallest grain of dirt rubbed across the screen with your finger can result in a large scratch. Turn on Apple’s iCloud as soon as you get an iPad. iCloud acts as an important backup to your most critical documents, photos, music, and more. The beauty of it is that it just works. No need to manually force it to back your items up; it does it behind the scenes. Make sure you set up your browser’s auto fill settings on your iPad. Go to Safari’s Settings menu and select AutoFill. Once you are there, you can enable Safari to automatically fill forms using your contact information. You can also select an option to automatically remember your login IDs and passwords for websites you visit frequently. The iPad can be instantly muted. The first iPads did not have a mute button on them. Once iOS 4.3 came out, there was an option added where your lock switch can mute the sound. Holding down the volume button helps to mute your phone fast. If your iPad turn by turn directions are too soft or loud, change them in settings. Some people may need a little extra volume for these directions, while others like them softer. No matter your need, you can make adjustments right in your iPad settings. You can even turn off the voice if you don’t want it. 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. Anyone can use an iPad successfully, whether they are a baby playing with a number learning app or a senior who wants to play Tetris. Everyone and anyone in-between can find great utility in this tablet. This article has provided tips to make the iPad the best tool for anyone who wishes to own one.
