Do you get perturbed when your iPad wants you to go on the WiFi available? This feature can by turned off by adjusting your iPad settings. Select Wi-Fi and then turn the Ask option off.
Did you accidentally launch a loud app? Press and hold the button used to turn down the volume, and the device will mute automatically. If you find yourself needing a mute button often, you can set the screen lock button to work as a permanent mute button.
It is possible to preview more than a couple of lines of email by changing settings. Go to your mail settings under the general heading. Select “5 lines” for example. This way, you can view more of the email, speeding up your skim-through process.
If you want to charge your iPad quickly, avoid using an iPhone charger. The iPhone charger supplies half the watts the iPad charger does. Charging with the incorrect charger will delay the charge time. Use the proper iPad charger.
Are you annoyed when your iPad audibly alerts you to every new email? You can change this! Under the Settings menu, choose “General”. When you are in General, then go to Sounds. You will be able to turn the sound off here or adjust the volume.
Using shortcuts can make sending messages easier. For example, tapping the space bar twice when typing a sentence will add a period and a space. This lets you avoid doing it manually and you can send many more messages to friends.
You can change your search engine from the default Google to another you prefer. Access Safari and then Search Engine from the Settings menu. You can then change your default search engine to Yahoo or Bing.
Wouldn’t you like to track a lost iPad? Then go to Settings, then iCloud. Under the area labeled “Find My iPad,” enter your Apple ID and make sure the function is enabled. That way, if you lose your iPad, you simply have to go to iCloud.com.
If you find yourself in a situation where you must mute sound on your iPad, try this trick. Simply hold down the ‘volume down’ button for two seconds. This is easier than having to keep readjusting the volume. When you want to hear your device at a normal level again, just hold the volume down for the same amount of time.
