  8. 8. FOUR BUTTONS !   Home button - indented w/ white square !   Sleep/wake button - top right !   Volume control - up and down !   Mute or lock display in horizontal or vertical position (set your preference in Settings)

  11. 11. FOLDERIZE APPS OR NOT???!   Maximum apps that will display: 11 pages x 20 + 6 on dock=226!   Even 16GB iPad can hold many more than 226; locate & open with Spotlight!   Folders are only option to display them all!
  12. 12. SAVE TIME USING SPOTLIGHT!   Screen (page) to left of home page!   Smart searching - usually only have to type in first few letters and suggested apps/contacts/song will be listed!   Click on desired choice
  13. 13. KEEP A CLOTH HANDY...!   Or a SMART Cover!   Microfiber!   Do not spray directly on iPad!   Screen protectors???

  15. 15. BEST TO CHARGE OVERNIGHT! 4-5 hrs. for full charge  ! Full charges lasts 8-9 hrs.  ! Use wall charger that comes with iPad  ! Charging with USB to computer takes   longer!   Rarely need to power off iPad; just put it to sleep
  16. 16. SOFT RESET!   Extreme cases when iPad freezes!   Hold Sleep/Wake button and Home button for a few seconds; iPad will restart!   Force quit an app, hold Sleep/Wake button until “Slide to Power Off” comes up; then hold Home button for about 5 seconds
  17. 17. HARD RESET!   Notice strange behavior!   Have 20%+ charge, in ‘Power On’ state, hold down Sleep/ Wake and Home buttons at same time, ignore red slide ‘To power off, keep both buttons down until white Apple logo appears (could take a long time)
  18. 18. SET UP EMAIL ACCOUNT!   Highly recommended - Best way to get anything ‘out’ of the iPad!   This is the address from which your photo, note, etc. will be sent!   Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, RR, AOL - easiest; school email more complex to set up
