If you’re looking for basics on buying, setting up, and using features of your iPad, you’ve come to the right part of this book. Here you get to explore what’s in the box and register your iPad. You start to get a feel for how you interact with iPad by playing around with its camera, the touchscreen, and the onscreen keyboard. This is also where I introduce you to the preinstalled apps that come with your iPad (each of which is covered in detail in later books). I also help you explore iPad settings, many of which can make iPad an even better experience, including a chapter on accessibility settings for those who need assistance interacting with the device.
This part provides basics on getting connected to the Internet and using the Mail e-mail app, as well as getting set up to sync your iPad with iTunes or by using iCloud, the great service from Apple that automatically pushes content to all your iOS devices. Finally, I provide advice about troubleshooting and maintaining your iPad to keep it running for years to come.
