Part IV. The Undiscovered iPad

The Undiscovered iPad

In this part ...

This part is where we show you what's under the hood and how to configure your iPad to your liking. Then we look at the things to do if your iPad ever becomes recalcitrant.

In Chapter 13, we explore every single iPad setting that's not discussed in depth elsewhere in the book. The iPad offers dozens of different preferences and settings to make your iPad your very own; by the time you finish with Chapter 13, you'll know how to customize every part of your iPad that can be customized.

iPads are well-behaved little beasts for the most part, except when they're not. Like the little girl with the little curl, when they're good they're very, very good, but when they're bad, they're horrid. So Chapter 14 is your comprehensive guide to troubleshooting the iPad. It details what to do when almost anything goes wrong, offering step-by-step instructions for specific situations as well as describing a plethora of tips and techniques you can try if something else goes awry. You may never need Chapter 14 (and we hope you won't), but you'll be very glad we put it here if your iPad ever goes wonky on you.

Carrying cases, physical keyboards — in Chapter 15, we take a look at some iPad accessories that we recommend. No, they're not included with your iPad purchase, but we consider them essential just the same.
