Apple surprised everyone—even Macworld—when it released a fully souped-up fourth-generation iPad just six months after its predecessor. Not to be caught in the dust, our Superguide team went to work updating our third-generation iPad book, and now we’re proud to present the fourth edition of our iPad Starter Guide.

If you’re giving the gift of iPad this holiday season, or awaiting its arrival on your own doorstep, the editors at Macworld are the perfect people to help you get to know your new device with our iPad Starter Guide. Totally new to the iPad and not sure where to begin? Our Starter Guide will introduce you to the device and walk you through the activation process. 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, Siri, 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.

To get our iPad Starter Guide right away on the device of your choice, you can purchase it now from the iBookstore, Kindle Store, Nook Store, or as a PDF for $3.99. Or for $4.99, you can purchase our ePub/MOBI/PDF bundle and have a version that you can read on your computer (PDF), iOS device or Nook (ePub), and Kindle (MOBI).

We hope you have fun getting to know your new iPad. If you just picked up an iPad mini, stay tuned for our iPad Mini Starter Guide, coming soon.
