If you are new to using an iPad you may initially think it cannot do much. Don't be fooled, you simply need to start looking through apps. The real capabilities of an iPad come from the additional applications that you are able to download and use directly from your device.

If you use your iPad to store sensitive information, you can turn on a feature that will delete all this data in case a wrong password is entered ten times. Go to your settings, tap on general and select the pass-code lock feature. Use a password you will not easily forget.

You can extend the life of your iPad's battery by using the device in Airplane Mode. In Airplane Mode, WiFi and wireless radio are disabled. This is ideal if you do not require an Internet connection to use your iPad. You will still be able to use your tablet to read e-books, play games and use certain apps without draining the battery.

Did you know that when you are charging your iPad on a flat surface, it can take a while for the battery light to appear? Don't panic! Plug it in and wait for a bit. The charging symbol will eventually appear and your iPad has been charging the entire time.

There is a feature you can use on your phone that will erase all the data on the phone if someone inputs the correct passcode. While this may seem like a good idea, be careful. You may put the wrong passcode yourself and end up losing all of your information.

You can easily see the video or picture you just took without clicking the camera roll. Instead, you can use one finger to swipe to the right, and voila, there is your picture or video. To look at your previous pictures, swipe your finger to the left.

You can display your Ipad screen on a HD TV. All you need is an Apple digital AV adapter or an Apple VGA adapter depending on the kind of TV you have. This first product can be plugged into an HDMI port while the second one requires a VGA port.

When viewing web content on your iPad, you may have to scroll down for what seems like forever. Scrolling your way back to the top of the page is time-consuming and annoying. To move instantly back to the top without scrolling, simply tap on the title bar, which is located at the top of your screen.

Get a USB keyboard. When you get a keyboard, you expand your abilities with the iPad. Keyboards are often more comfortable for posting on Facebook, forums and doing other online writing. That allows you to be more efficient. Some keyboards double as a case, so check out the options available.

Unfortunately, the iPad does not have a free satellite navigation feature. However, the map's direction features works great for driving, walking, and even bus directions. To use it, simply tap on "Directions", found on the top left corner of the maps app, and you will be given a step-by-step guide to your destination.

Never waste time wandering aimlessly through your library of music looking for the one tune you hope to hear. Use the Spotlight search feature. Just flick to the right on your Home screen to get to Searchlight. Alternatively, you can press the Home button. This feature is also helpful in launching apps and can help you find contacts too.

Double-click the Home button to access all apps that are currently running. A little bar will pop up that gives you access to your apps. Never again will you forget about apps you're running.

Copy and paste is no longer a feature only accessible on your home computer. With a simple tap of the button, you can select any area of text and copy it to your clipboard. When you're ready to paste, tap the button once more and select the "paste" option. This is perfect for duplicate messages or sharing an idea more than once.

If you plan to take your iPad into the kitchen, you absolutely must have a screen protector, stylus and standing case. You will accidentally drop goo all over your iPad, and the protector and case will ensure it says off the iPad itself. The stylus keeps sticky fingers off the screen, too.

You may not have realized it, but you can move your application icons anywhere on the screen that you want. To do so, simply hold the icon for one second and when it pops up you can move it where you want. This is also the way to delete an application.

When you are not using your iPad, make sure that your screen locks relatively quickly. Having your screen locked can keep your battery usage to a minimum, and thereby increase your battery lifespan. Look in General - Auto-Lock to find your settings, and set your device to lock as fast as it possibly for best results.

There may be many apps that you do not use on an iPad, but you are not allowed to delete some of them. The best thing to do to get them out of your way is to move all of them into a folder. This way, you will only see the one folder icon and not a ton of icons for things you don't use.

As was stated in the opening paragraph of this article, iPads really are amazing devices. The technological advances that make the iPad so great, however, can make learning how to use the device just a tad bit challenging. Luckily, by studying this article carefully you should be able to learn how to operate your iPad to its full potential. Good luck!
