Get more out of your iPad with iOS 8 or iOS 9
There are many advantages of owning an iPad. Once you have mastered the basics of using this lightweight and portable device, you may want to dive into some of the lesser known but equally important features. This book discusses in depth some of the many useful settings and options that can transform the way you use your iPad. You will learn how to turn multitasking gestures on to make it easier to control your iPad, adjust sounds for alerts and messages, and make use of the impressive array of privacy options and accessibility features that are available.

For example, you can decide whether or not to accept cookies in Safari, synchronize your calendar with your email account, choose which items to display in the Notification Center, set up Family Sharing and set volume controls for the Music app. Not only does this book give you tips about working with the iPad’s standard apps, we also give you some suggestions for other, useful apps that can be purchased or downloaded for free or for a small fee in the App Store.
