About This Superguide:
This in-depth Superguide covers everything you need know about your iPad’s hardware and software, including the latest on iOS 5. We also highlight and recommend some great apps and accessories to get you started.
We provide step-by-step instructions for getting acquainted with your new iPad. Familiarize yourself with every port, button, and switch on your device, and start the setup process. Customize your settings by enabling parental controls, changing the behavior of your iPad’s side-switch, and (if you have an LTE-enabled iPad) creating a data plan. Learn about the many multitouch gestures you’ll be using to open, close, zoom, and swipe on the 9.7-inch LED-backlit screen. Communicate with others using Mail, Safari, Messages, and FaceTime.
In addition, we’ll show you how to sync and load all your favorite music, movies, television shows, podcasts, apps, and files using iTunes; how to convert most any file to work on the iPad; and how to stream your media to a television or other source using AirPlay. Organize your life using the iPad’s built-in Calendar, Notes, Reminders, and Contacts apps, and get the best recommendations for third-party apps to help increase productivity. Discover how to get work done on the iPad using iWork, Google Docs, and Microsoft Office files.
Even without a tech support background, it’s easy to troubleshoot most simple problems on the iPad. In our Troubleshooting Tips chapter, we give a rundown of common questions plaguing users and the easiest ways to fix them. We’ll also share some simple tricks to keep your device up and running, and suggestions for when you need to consult with the experts.
You can read our iPad Superguide right away on an iOS device by purchasing it from Apple’s iBookstore for $9.99. If you prefer reading on a Kindle or Nook, we also have the book available on the Kindle Store and Nook Bookstore for the same price.
If you’d like to read the book on your Mac, consider a full color PDF of the Superguide; you can also cover all your bases and have a copy of each version for each of your devices with our ebook and PDF bundle or CD version.
