iPads now support folders. To begin, tap and hold your finger on an app until it starts jiggling, drag that app on top of another icon, and then let it go. This action will make a folder that contains both apps named with whatever category the apps are. You can rename the folder whatever you want.
Soft resets can fix your iPad when it freezes. To do so, hold the power button and home button simultaneously for several seconds. This will cause your device to restart. Whenever you need to force the closure of an app, you can do so by holding down your device’s home button for several seconds.
If you do not have much time, do not use your iPhone’s charger to charge your iPad. The iPad charger is a 10 watt charger. The iPhone charger is a 5 watt charger. It takes much longer to fully charge the iPad with a iPhone charger. You would be better off using the one that came with the iPad.
The chime on the iPad that alerts you of new email can be very annoying. You can shut off that feature. Find your Settings tab, then go to General. When you are in General, then go to Sounds. Within that option, you can turn the sound off or adjust it to be less annoying and suit your needs better.
You can set your iPad to block mature content if your child will be using it. Just click on settings and turn on parental controls. You have the option of blocking anything that is labeled as “adult.”
