Having been eagerly anticipated to the public, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 finally show up. Here let's talk about the primary tips about how to make the full use of iPad.

If you are a first-time iPad user, this passage will be very useful for you. Since iPad is very easy for use, you may be able to use it as soon as you get it. However, do you know some tips on how to use it? I assemble 10 tips for the first-time iPad users. You may handle iPad easily after reading this passage.

1. Create Folders on your iPad
If you have installed a lot of Apps on your iPad, you may want to put the relative Apps into a folder. Therefore, you can find the Apps you want easier and it can avoid the mess of the main window. What you need to do is to press an App continuously until it shocked, and then overlap it to another App. A new folder will be set up automatically. If you want to rename folders in your iPad, you can tap the title of the folder and change its name.

2.Put Apps to your iPad Dock
We usually put some most used applications’icons at the bottom of iPad. For iPad, you can dock 6 icons and I often dock 4 for the reason of aesthetics. If you want to add a new icon to the dock, you need to press and hold an icon until all of the icons start to shake, and then drag the icon to the dock.

3. Add a Web site to the Home screen
iPad’ screen is so big that you can enjoy viewing web page. Open the Safari browser and navigating to the site you want and tap on Add to “Home” Screen. Now, you can open this website from home screen. It is faster and more convenient.


4. Turn off app with four fingers
First, set the function in Setting> General>Multitasking Gesture. To reveal the multitasking bar at the bottom of your iPad screen, swipe up with four (or five) fingers at once or double click the Home button.And then find the app you want to turn off by drag it upwardly to turn it off. When some apps can not run smoothly, you can use this method to turn it off forcedly.

5. Spotlight search
Click the items you want to search late in Setting> General>Spotlight.
When you can’t find the app you want, contacts, music and so on, you can swipe down on any screen to pulls up the Spotlight Search screen. Just type in the name of the app and tap it to launch the app.


6. Quit iPad apps using a five finger pinch gesture
Do you know that there are some “gestures” that iPad owned but iPhone didn’t? For example, if you pinch the screen with four or five fingers, you’ll “close” the app and be taken to the home screen.It has the same effect as a single-click of the home button. I believe this gesture will help to protect the Home button.


7. Fast app switching
In order to switch app fast, you just need to open the iPad's multitasking menu by swiping upwards with four fingers if you have set the function in Setting> General>Multitasking Gesture.

8. Control panel
Control panel is a new feature in iOS 7. After sliding your finger up onto the screen, you can adjust brightness, voice of iPad. You can also open wi-fi, control media playback, get to AirDrop and AirPlay, and rapidly get to flashlight, timer, calculator, and camera. It is very convenient, isn’t it?

9. Set up iCloud
iCloud can keep all your iOS devices in sync with any cable. You can enjoy sharing by using it. On iPad, tap Settings, tap iCloud, enter your Apple ID and password, and then tap Sign In. You will get an iCloud account.


10. Sync photos to iOS devices via iCloud
We usually use iPhone to take photos and then watch them in iPad. Therefore, syncing photos to iOS device is very useful for us. You can do this by turning on iCloud and Photo Stream at the same time. Then enable wi-fi, your photos will be synced to iCloud automatically.
