Learn How To Use Your IPad To Its Full Potential

IPad to its full potential

Tablets are an amazing creation. They are like a laptop, only smaller, yet they’re exceptionally powerful and can hold a ton of data. Your iPad can do it all for you, from video conferencing to word processing.

You can view the apps running on your iPad. You can run many iPad’s apps in the back while you are doing other things. Double-click Home to see what’s currently running. The apps which are currently running appear in the bar located at the bottom of your screen.

If you own an iPad, it is a good idea to make a backup. You can use iTunes to make a back up so that your data is properly saved. Go to iTunes and right-click on devices list and select backup. You can also use the same feature in iCloud to backup as well.

Choose between Orientation Lock and Mute. Older versions of the iPad featured an “Orientation Lock” button on the side of the device. The button remained on later versions, but its function was switched to “Mute.” If you preferred the older function, you can access a setting in the General Settings menu to set it back to its original function.

Many iPad games and apps have a feature that notifies you whenever some action is performed. For example, you may receive a notification from Words With Friends that it is your turn to play, or you might have a Twitter alert that tells you someone has re-tweeted something. Disable these notifications unless they are absolutely necessary. These frequent updates can shorten the life of your iPad’s battery.

Your iPad will now support a VPN connection. You just need to configure it first. Start by going to your Settings menu. Look under General to find Network. Choose the VPN and switch that slider to On. You can then add the VPN configuration using your account details and server.

Can your iPad do everything your computer can and more? Yes, of course it can! It just takes a little ingenuity, research and determination to make the iPad what you want it to be.
