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.

 

One of the great things about the iPad is that it allows you to quickly check your email. If you receive a large volume of emails throughout the day, it may actually be draining your battery. The device is configured to check for new messages frequently and automatically. Instead of setting it to notify you of new messages every few minutes, go into the Mail, Contacts and Calendars settings to adjust the frequency of mail checks.

 

You can switch your search engine from Google, if you wish. You can do this by going to the settings, selecting Safari and choosing Search Engine. If you'd rather use Yahoo or Bing, this is where you'd make those changes.

 

Change the passcode on your iPad. You automatically are prompted for only a four-digit password. However, this is not as secure as you would like since this not only gets you into your iPad but also is used to encrypt your data. Therefore, go to Passcode Lock under your General Settings and turn off Simple Passcode. After that, you will be able to make the password any length you like using any keyboard characters.

 

Taking screenshots on an iPad is a cinch. You just press home and sleep together in order to do this. Then you will have a screenshot you can organize with your other photos.

 

A neat feature in Safari on the iPad is the quick scroll. Many people do not know about this and waste time scrolling by hand up the page to get back to the beginning. All you have to do to get back to the top of any page is to tap on the title window at the top.

 

If you ever need to mute the sound on an iPad, you should try this tip. The volume down button, when held for two seconds, gets this done. This is a lot easier than constantly adjusting the volume controls. When ready for original volume level, simply hold the button down again.

 

A quicker way to access websites is using the ".com" key. When browsing in Safari, you can save time typing website addresses by just tapping on this key. You can also have other options by holding down on this key. When you tap and hold down, you will have a menu that will give other options to the ".com" address.
