Tablets are becoming more and more popular, and the iPad is at the top of the list. Many people, however, aren’t familiar with how to use this piece of technology. Even those that have experience with Apple products often are unaware of a few tricks that could make their experience more enjoyable. This article will outline a few things that you can do to make the most of your iPad.
Are you getting too many notifications? If some apps send notifications, you do not need, you should go to your settings and tap on notifications. You will then have access to a complete list of your apps and be able to choose which notifications you want to receive.
Don’t lose track of your iPad app spending. It is so simple to use your iTunes application that you can rack up a huge bill without realizing it. Because of this, ensure that you don’t spend more than you have.
You can reset your iPad if you see that it is frozen. Simply press down on the home button and the power button at the same time. This will make the device restart. When an app is stuck, you can hold the Home button and it should close.
While many people enjoy the fact that the iPad screen is very bright, your eyes may get tired of looking at the screen after a while, particularly in the evenings. Push on the home button twice and move over to the right. You will notice a brightness indicator that allows you to change things up.
A fantastic way to keep multiple pages open is by opening them in new tabs. If you use Safari, tap the link and hold it until the menu option becomes visible. Go to the pop up menu, and you can open new links.
Are your spotlight searches taking too long? You can restrict the folders that are searched by going into your settings. Tap on general and select Spotlight search. You can then choose which folders will be included in your search, which is very useful if you only use this search feature to find media content.
You can change the default search engine to something besides Google if you wish. Access Safari and then Search Engine from the Settings menu. Then you can change your default search engine to one of the options provided.
Place a restriction for how long you spend on your iPad. It can be addicting. After all, there are so many things you can do, that you may not want to use any of your other electronics. Be smart and give yourself a limit on how long you use the device to give yourself some perspective.
