If you do a lot of typing on your iPad, consider buying a portable Bluetooth keyboard. Doing a lot of typing on a virtual on-screen keyboard will most likely cause a lot of pain in your finger joints. Buying a portable Bluetooth keyboard for your iPad will make it possible for you to type long documents on your tablet comfortably.

 

If your iPad holds sensitive data, a feature can be enabled that lets you erase all of that data on your device. This is only triggered if a person incorrectly inputs the password 10 times. To set this up, go to Settings. Look under General for Passcode Lock. Then, go to Erase Data.

 

Learn all the things the side switch can do on your iPad. It is a handy way to turn your audio alerts on and off without affecting your playback sound. You can also use it to lock your screen so that it does not automatically rotate. If you want to use it for some other function, you can change this in the General Settings menu.

 

If you're battery is draining fast than you'd like, turn off some notifications and location based items. Your iPad is constantly monitoring where you are (as long as it's on wifi, 3G, or LTE). This monitoring sucks the life out of your battery. If you don't need the features, then you can extend your battery time with a few flicks of a button.

 

Control what notifications you see. Tired of every app bothering you with notifications, causing you to miss important ones? Head to the Notifications section of your Settings menu. Here you can determine which of your apps are allowed to send you pop up notifications and which ones cannot. This can put a halt to noisy apps and make it easier to see your important messages.

 

If you want to copy text quickly, just press and hold the text to be copied. Then push "copy" and move over into a different app. Push the screen and hold down for a second. A menu comes up and you can press paste. In order to copy and paste an entire paragraph, four taps will be necessary.

 

Password protect your device. This can be a great way to keep prying eyes away from your information and your iPad. Think of a password you can remember, and make sure that it is not the same password as the one you use everywhere else. Write it down so that you can retrieve it if you forget.

 

Now you've got a foundation to build on. You can use your iPad for virtually any purpose, ranging from weather forecasting to toys your kids can play with. Before you know it, you will not be able to live without it. It will take the place of many other gadgets, as you utilize the preceding tips.
