The piece that follows is full of terrific advice and guidance about using iPads.
VPN networks allow for access to remote servers. To activate your iPad’s VPN feature, head to settings and click on network tab. When prompted, enter your server address and username. If you lack the server address, ask a network administrator.
Soft reset your iPad if it freezes. Simultaneously hold down the Power and Home buttons for several seconds. The device will restart. If you want to kill a running process, hold the main button for around 5 seconds.
Be aware of any apps that constantly run on your device. A lot of iPad apps are designed to run as background processes. To see what is currently running on your device, simply double click on the Home button. Everything that is open will be displayed in a bar located underneath all of your other information. Swipe down to get rid of the bar when you are done.
If you would like to take a screenshot while you are using your iPad, it is very easy to do. All you need to do is press the Home button and the Sleep button at the same time. The screenshot will be taken, and you can look at it from the photo area of your iPad.

As mentioned in the introduction, the iPad has had skyrocketing sales because of the many features it has. To be sure you get all that you can from your iPad, try using this knowledge. Enjoy your new gadget!
