The iPad offers numerous possibilities. Once you have mastered the basic operations of this handy device, there are many more possibilities to discover. For example, there are still several useful settings on the iPad that will make it easier to use. These settings involve the operation of the touch screen, sounds and messages, and the use of privacy options. It is very good to know more about these settings and how to edit them on the iPad!
Most apps offer additional settings that you can apply. For example, you can decide whether or not to accept cookies in Safari, synchronize your calendar with your email account, choose which messages to display, set up home sharing in iTunes and set volume controls for the Music app.

What readers are saying about Tips and Tricks for the iPad for SENIORS (for iOS 7)

Thank you for publishing the Tips and Tricks for the iPad for seniors.
Since we bought the book, we can clearly understand the concept of using an iPad. We didn't even know the meaning of wireless WiFi a couple of months ago. Now we can show other seniors how to use the iPad.
Enjoying the book very much and thanks again.
