A new book full of practical tips for the iPad with iOS 8
 
 

Have you mastered the basics of using the iPad? Then you may want to dive into some of the lesser known but equally important features. The book Tips and Tricks for the iPad with iOS 8 and higher for SENIORS 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.
Most apps also offer additional settings that can be applied. 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 a small fee in the App Store.
Dive into this book and discover how much more the iPad has to offer!
