welcome to ipad user magazine, helping you to do more with your ipad

If you’re thinking about upgrading your iPad, or buying one for the first time then right now is probably the perfect time. We’ve seen updates to the iPad Air relatively recently, and there are very few rumours on the horizon of changes to the rest of Apple’s tablet lineup. Buying a new iPad can be a confusing choice - do you save a bit of money and go with the basic model, or is the iPad Air worth the extra cash? And what about the more expensive iPad Pro? Then you have to consider if a smaller iPad mini might fit your needs better. In a way the dilemma of which model to choose that faces every new iPad owner is a nice problem to have, but it’s still a problem,…

change the default apps

IT WILL TAKE 5 minutes YOU WILL LEARN How to change the default apps on your iPad YOU’LL NEED iPadOS 14 For now, you can only change the defaults for your web browser and email Apple’s iOS and iPadOS apps are great, but they aren’t always the best choice for everyone. That’s why the App Store is filled with alternatives: Carrot Weather (and until Apple bought it, Dark Sky) as alternatives to Apple’s own Weather; Fantastical instead of Calendar; Firefox instead of Safari, and so on. But while Apple was happy to let you install your chosen alternatives, it kept its own apps as the default – so if you clicked a link, it’d open in Safari; if you clicked an ‘email us’ button, it’d launch Mail. That’s changed in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. Simple, not Siri It’s…

When Apple first made the iPad, most people weren’t entirely sure what it was for. The answer turns out to be: everything.

And we haven’t even mentioned the huge selection of TV apps such as catch-up TV and video streaming or the many free games and kids’ apps available for iPadOS. These apps will make your life easier, more entertaining or both. Again, all these apps are available on the App Store. NetNewsWire FROM netnewswireapp.com The iPad is a very good reading device. However, reading things from web pages or social media can be a real pain these days with endless cookie warnings, notification requests, odd formatting and entire jungles of adverts. RSS…
