Wanna make your iPad work faster and better- Here are the 10 tricks to do so
iPad does have some hidden tricks that makes it work better. With these tricks you will find that iPad works faster. Here are the 10 tricks that will make your things easier from locking screen, swiping the camera to texting a message much faster.
1. To make Large and Bold Texting
In your iPad though you have a wide screen but it’s not always easy to read small print on websites and menus. But with this trick can make your Apple display easier to read.
Just go to Settings > General > Accessibility.
To bold the text, tap on the Bold Text button.
To make the text bigger, tap Larger Text > Larger Accessibility Sizes and move the slider to adjust the size of the font.
One more easy way to Zoom your Text
Another easy way to make your text appear bigger
Go to Settings > General > Accessibility, and turn on Zoom.
Use three fingers to double tap on the screen to zoom in and out of applications like Mail, Safari and your Home and Lock screens. Try it with other apps, too. Even this can be done in Instagram, for example, to zoom in on a photo.
While watching videos if you want to zoom in, just pinch in and out with two fingers, like you do with photos.
2. Find another keyboard to type fast
If you’d prefer to use a standard keyboard rather than type directly onto your touch screen, apple lets you use keyboards made by other companies or by third-party providers, as long as you’re using iOS 9.3.2.
Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Keyboards > Add a New Keyboard.
3. When adding button shapes
You can add Button Shapes. To enable them, go to Settings > General > Accessibility, and turn on Button Shapes. This setting will add outlines and shapes to an app’s buttons so you have a better idea of exactly where to press.
4. Enable Captioning in your iPad
Closed captioning is extremely useful if you’re hard of hearing, or if you want to enjoy a show or movie while everyone else is trying to sleep.
Captioning, or Subtitles, is available on most Apple devices using iOS 9.3.2. It’s easy to set up. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility, and turn on Subtitles & Captioning. You can also customize the caption’s font, size, type and color.
5. Use Voice Over
VoiceOver reads the words on your Apple device out loud. It will read each letter as you’re typing a text or email. It will tell you which app button you’re touching, who’s calling you, how much battery life is left, and more.
VoiceOver will also read directions to you in maps, have your camera tell you how many people are in your shot and get spoken photo descriptions. You can write notes and letters on the screen and have VoiceOver translate your messages into text for email and other apps.
To turn it on, go to Settings > General > Accessibility, and turn on VoiceOver. You have the option to practice with VoiceOver, including setting a speaking rate. Once enabled, to use VoiceOver from your iOS device, press the Home button three times.
6. Find better alerts
If you miss calls or texts then there are ways to get your attention, especially if you have trouble hearing.
Try using your iPhone’s LED light to alert you. To set up LED flashing lights, go to Settings > General > Accessibility, and turn on LED Flash for Alerts.
There’s another way to get alerts: You can set custom vibrations for incoming calls and messages. It’s actually quite clever.
Go to Settings > Sounds > Ringtone > Vibration. Or from your contacts list, press Edit and select the Vibration option for each of your contacts. This way, even if your phone is muted for calls, you can know who is calling by the contact’s vibration pattern.
7. Clear the Safari cache
If your iPad is working a bit slow then Safari is one app where you might notice slowdown more than most. This can be caused by a full cache, which Safari has to search through. Tap Settings > General > Clear History and Website Data to remove all of the Safari cache information.
This should speed up the Safari interface, although web pages may take slightly longer to load in the short term (as the cache fills back up).
8. Updating iOS
Updating the iOS can be a mixed bag in terms of speed, as sometimes it introduces new features that actually slow down an older iOS device. But these tend to be fixed by Apple over time, and newer versions of iOS introduce new, and more efficient code. In any case, if your iPad is unusably slow after trying all the other tips here, it’s worth a go.
Tap Settings > General > Software Update and check if there’s a new version of iOS available. Updating iOS is almost always a one-way process, so only do this if you’re to do so
9. Removing large files
Get rid of the large files that slows iPad
Click Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage. Now tap Manage Storage (under Storage, not iCloud) and look for items that are taking up lots of space like the podcasts and movies. Tap an app to view its contents, and then swipe left across any item you don’t want and tap Delete.
10. Turn off Spotlight
Spotlight is a handy way to find something on your iPad, but it has to index each item on your iPad that can occasionally slow things down.
Tap Settings > General > Spotlight Search and set all the Search Results items to Off.
Now see how your iPad works much better and even faster.
