Insider Tips

  • Privacy Please – So you bought an iPad Air that your entire family uses. In the case where you don’t want everyone to know your browsing business, set some privacy boundaries. Go to Settings > Safari and turn the “Private Browsing” option on. That way all the pages you visit, search history, and Auto Fill information is not saved – keeping it for your eyes only.
  • Steady Wins the Race – When you’re trying to capture a picture-perfect photo using the iPad camera, don’t let an awkward, shaky hold ruin the shot. Instead, hold the tab up using both hands and simply push the Volume up button on the side when your camera app is open. Furthermore, if you’ve got Apple earphones in during a photography excursion, you can alternatively push the Volume up button on those buds to snap a truly mobile, but steady, in-the-moment pic.
