Your iPad is helpful, but maybe you haven’t tapped into how helpful it can be. Having adequate knowledge on your iPad can help you utilize it to its full capacity. This article is designed to provide you with some helpful tips that will assist you in using and enjoying your iPad.

TIP! You can view the apps running on your iPad. A good number of iPad apps are able to run seemingly in the background at the same time that you are otherwise engaged.

There is a way that you can check all the running applications that you have at a given time. By double-clicking on your Home button, you will see every running app in a bar near the bottom of the screen. Tap an application icon to switch to that app. When you’re done, swipe the screen downwards to hide the bar.

TIP! If you are sick and tired of being notified of a local Wi-Fi connection, change your settings. Go to Settings and choose the Ask to Join Network option.

It is a pain when you get an email and your iPad chimes every time. Did you know you can turn off this annoying feature? Just go to Settings then General. When you are in General, then go to Sounds. Here, you can turn off your New Mail sound or adjust its level.

TIP! If you don’t want anyone to access your personal information, your iPad can be set to delete all data. This feature erases everything recorded on your phone after someone has tried and failed 10 times.

Shortcuts make it far easier for you to send messages. For instance, a period and space are added when you tap the space bar two times while typing a sentence. You won’t have to add it yourself and the time you save can mean more messaging to family and friends.

TIP! The iPad doesn’t come with a paper manual so it will need to be downloaded if you want to read it. Apple doesn’t include manuals with their products in order to maintain a minimalistic image.

You can access your Google Calendar in the Calendar app on the iPad by choosing, “Mail,” “Contacts,” and “Calendars” under the Settings menu. Navigate to Add An Account, and then tap Other. Choose “CalDAV” as the account type and type in your Google credentials. Then, get out of the settings app and tap the calender app. You should see what you need.

TIP! The chime on the iPad that alerts you of new email can be very annoying. Did you know you can turn off this annoying feature? Just select your Settings button and then General after that.

By using tabs to open websites, it’s easy to keep all the pages you need open. If you are using Safari, tap and hold down the link and wait until a menu pops up. This pop-up menu provides you with the opportunity to use a new tab to open an additional link.

TIP! Hate having to view your iPad’s battery charge percentage? If so, then it’s possible to turn this off, and it’s quite simple. Go to Settings.

TIP! iOS comes with many apps that many people don’t use. Some of these cannot be deleted.
