Lots of people believe that they will be unable to use an iPad since they are not very good with technology. If you feel this way, then you should check out this article to see just how simple using a tablet can be. There are many useful tips found within.

If you want to organize your apps, create some folders. You can create a folder by tapping one of your apps and holding until all the apps are moving. Drag this app over a second app you want to place in the same folder and a folder containing both apps will appear. Drag other apps to the folder.

If you use your iPad to store sensitive information, you can turn on a feature that will delete all this data in case a wrong password is entered ten times. Go to your settings, tap on general and select the pass-code lock feature. Use a password you will not easily forget.

If you do not yet own an iPad, consider buying a refurbished iPad from Apple’s online store. Buying a refurbished iPad can save you a lot of money. What’s more, most of the refurbished iPads that Apple sell come with generous warranties and it can be difficult to tell that they are not brand new.

Getting a sound alert every time you receive an email can be very annoying. Were you aware that this feature can be disabled? To do so, go to Settings and General. Then select Sounds. You can stop the sound for new mail or at least turn it down.

Back up your iPad often. Your iPad will soon be a major piece of your daily life, holding entertainment, notes, and even important documents. Make it a habit to do a back up of your iPad every night so that there is no chance that these documents will be lost forever. Remember, your iPad is still a piece of technology; it can break or brick without much warning.

You can switch your search engine from Google, if you wish. Simply visit “settings” and select “Safari” and then “search engine.” Then you can change your default search engine to one of the options provided.

Do you hate having to tap the bookmark icon in order to open your bookmarked sites? It is possible to leave the bookmark bar up permanently. Go to your Settings, tap on Safari and turn on the bookmark bar.

Create folders to better organize your iPad screens. Just get your screen to jiggle mode and then place the icons on each other if you would like them in the same folder and repeat until you have everything where you want it. This feature is great when you have twenty or more icons.

Don’t forget about multitasking gestures. There are three to be aware of. These include a four finger swipe (either to the left or to the right) to move seamlessly between apps that you are using and a four finger swipe to take you back to the home screen. These make your life easier, so take advantage of them.

Let your children play with the iPad. Because the functions run on a touch screen, even small toddlers can have fun with it. This is a great way to introduce the computer to your young children. Watch how they use this tool, and you will be amazed at how quickly they learn on it.

Did these tips help you? Do you still feel like you can’t use a tablet? You should be prepared to jump feet first into this wonderful technology as soon as you pick up your iPad! These tips were designed for any type of user to improve their own experience with an iPad.
