Do you get irked each time you get a message from your iPad wanting to know if you want to join a new wifi network that it has just picked up? This feature can be turned off in your settings. Just go to the tab for Wi-Fi, and there is an option to turn off the prompt. It is the final option on that page.

Keep track of the apps your are running. A lot of iPad apps are designed to run as background processes. If you aren’t sure what you have left open, push the home button twice. The apps you have running are going to show up near the screen’s bottom. To make the bar disappear, swipe downward.

Did you accidentally launch an app that makes a lot of noise? You can quickly turn the sound down by holding down the “vol -” button until it is muted. The lock button can be turned into a mute button as well.

If constant barrages of Wi-Fi notifications are making you crazy, make some adjustments in “settings.” Go to Settings and then Wi-Fi and look for Ask to Join. Choose that and this will no longer pop up.

Muting your iPad’s sound is actually pretty simple. Just depress the volume button for only 2 seconds. That’s faster than adjusting the volume repeatedly. Hold the button once more and the volume will return to the former setting.

Mature Content

You can block mature content on an iPad that was purchased for use by your child. Go to the menu for settings and set up filters for mature content. This can block anything that you would not want your child to see.

Make sure that you set up all of your numbers and emails on your iPad. The default option is to use FaceTime with your primary email, but this can be changed. Go to the settings of your iPad and customize from there.

You can use the copy and paste feature on your iPad. Whatever text that you hope to cut and paste should be tapped and then held. Then choose select to pick the particular sentence that you want.

Shutter Button

When you take photos, don’t fall into the trap of holding the device by the sides. This way, the shutter button might move, and there could be wobbling as you shoot the photo. Use the orientation lock. This will make it easier for you to hit the shutter button when you go to take a picture. Once you are done, use the image editor on your pictures to rotate them.

Many people would rather not have the percentage of battery charge displayed on their screen constantly. But you can remove it! Navigate to Settings, select General, and find Usage. Then you can toggle it on or off. You can follow the same procedure if you want to turn the indicator back on.
