Remain aware of the apps that are currently operational on your device. A lot of iPad apps are designed to run as background processes. To see the things that your iPad is running, double click the Home button. The apps currently running will appear in a bar at the bottom of your screen. When you are finished with this area, swipe down and the bar will be gone.

You need not press the camera roll icon to see a video or picture you take. Instead, swipe right and your picture is there. Swipe toward the left and your previous pictures will appear.

You can select to see more lines of preview text in your email. In your Settings menu, click on Mail, and then find the Preview setting. Select “5 lines” for example. You will now see more lines of the email while in the inbox.

If you are concerned about someone seeing private information on your phone, you may set a password to erase the data after several failed attempts. Doing so will completely wipe your phone after 10 attempts.

Typing on iPads is something that requires getting used to. Fortunately, you can choose to have your iPad dictate what you say instead. Just push the home button twice and then tap on the little microphone that you see. When you finish talking, hit it again and you will see it as text.

“Ding!” Does the chiming of your iPad whenever you receive another email drive you crazy? Were you aware that this feature can be disabled? Under the Settings menu, choose “General”. Then select Sounds. Turn off the chime or adjust the volume of it.

You are able to send messages more easily when you use shortcuts. For instance, if you tap your space bar two times when you’re typing a sentence, both a space and a period will be added at the end of your sentence. This lets you avoid doing it manually and you can send many more messages to friends.

Do you like Google as your search page? If not, you can change it pretty easily. Just navigate to the Settings button, then you can switch it to Safari if you wish. This lets you change to Yahoo or Bing.

Because your iPad is a huge investment, it’s smart to care for it well. Quite a few people find that screen protectors work well with their iPads. These thin, plastic sheets give your iPad’s screen extra protection. To clean the screen, simply use soft cloths that are slightly damp. Never clean your iPad with a glass cleaner or all purpose cleaner.
