Apple’s latest iPad comes jam-packed with new features, like Siri voice control, seamless Facebook integration, and an electronic billfold that holds boarding passes, movie tickets, and membership cards. But to realize the tablet’s full potential, you need a comprehensive owner’s manual. iPad: The Missing Manual shows you how to transfer media to your iPad, sync and shop wirelessly, manage all your email accounts and calendars, and use iTunes for media management.
The important stuff you need to know:
- Take your media with you. Fill your iPad with music, photos, movies, TV shows, games, ebooks, and podcasts.
- Sync wirelessly. Keep your iPad’s apps, media, and email messages current without cabling up.
- Get online. Connect via WiFi or the blazing-fast 4G LTE cellular network.
- Post to Facebook. Update your status right from the iPad’s Camera, Photos, Maps, and Game Center apps.
- Capture stunning images. Take photos and HD video with the tablet’s 5-megapixel iSight camera, and beam the results to your TV.
- Make photos public. Share selected photos with others over iCloud.
- Find your way. Get turn-by-turn directions from Siri and soar over cityscapes with the iPad’s new 3D flyover map.
- Take dictation. Speak email messages and notes so your iPad can type them up.
