Whether you already have a new iPad in hand, are waiting anxiously for its arrival at your doorstep, or are seriously considering purchasing Apple’s latest tablet, let the Macworld editors help you get to know the third-generation iPad with our iPad Starter Guide (Third Edition), now available for download for $3.99 from the iBookstore.
Totally new to the iPad and not sure where to begin? Our Starter Guide will introduce you to the new iPad’s exterior and teach you how to activate the device. You’ll discover basic gestures for navigating through apps and home screens, and learn some of our favorite iPad tips and tricks.
Maybe you’ve owned an iPad before, but want to freshen up on the device’s features and learn about new iPad additions. We’ll walk you through Notification Center, Dictation, and iCloud, Apple’s syncing service. Learn how to customize your settings to your liking, discover downloadable Apple apps like Find My Friends and Find My iPhone, and find out which third-party apps are worth your time.
