Your battery won’t last long if you’re using the iPad a lot. If you lessen the brightness of the screen, you can get more from your battery. Most likely it is not necessary to use the highest intensity setting to get the most from your iPad.
If constant barrages of Wi-Fi notifications are making you crazy, make some adjustments in “settings.” Go to Settings and then Wi-Fi and look for Ask to Join. By selecting that, you’ll no longer receive all of the invites.
A great way to keep pages open is to open new pages in a new tab. If you are using Safari, tap and hold down the link and wait until a menu pops up. This menu gives you the option that will allow you to open a new link.
Would you rather use something other than Google for a default search engine? Simply navigate to Settings, Safari, and then Search Engine. If you’d rather use Yahoo or Bing, this is where you’d make those changes.
What happens if your iPad is stolen or lost? Go to Settings, then iCloud. Enter your ID for Apple at the base of the screen. You will see the notation: FIND MY IPAD. Turn this function on. By doing this, if you ever misplace your iPad, you can go to iCloud.com to find it.
If you want to mute the volume on the iPad, try this. All you need to do is press and hold volume down for a couple of seconds. That works faster than continuing to adjust your volume. Hold it another time to get the volume level back to where it was.
