If this is your first time usingiPad, everything might feel a little confusing at first.AlthoughiPadIt used to feel more like a big iPhone, but Apple has made enough changes to the iPad's operating system to separate the two devices.


But don't worry, the tips we're about to show you will help you master your iPad in no time.

1. Open Control Center on your iPad


The Control Center on the iPad is a useful tool with many shortcut keys that you can use to do different things without opening any apps.For example, you can quickly use Bluetooth, turn on the flashlight, or set a timer.

You can use Control Center on your iPad just like you use and customize Control Center on your iPhone.But how you open Control Center will depend on your iPad model.

If you have a modern iPad with at least the iPadOS 13 or later software update, you can swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen to open Control Center.

On the other hand, if you have an older iPad still running iPadOS 12 or older, you can open Control Center by swiping up from the bottom of the screen (just above the home button).

2. Using Split View on iPad


Split View is a cool iPad feature that lets you have two apps open side by side.This feature is great for maximizing productivity and starting to use your iPad as a replacement for your Mac.Here's how you can use this feature:

1. Open the application you want to use in split view.

2. Tap the three-dot button near the top of the screen.

3 Click the Split View button on the left side of the menu.It's a rectangle with a line in the middle.

4. You will be redirected to your home screen.Select other apps you want to use in split view.

That's it, your iPad will open a second app next to the first app you opened.

It's worth noting that not all apps support split view.If the app you choose doesn't support this feature, it won't have the three-dot menu at the top of the screen.Likewise, if you choose a second app that doesn't support split-screen, your iPad will open the second app in full screen.

To exit split view, press and hold the three-dot button at the top of one of the apps and swipe down with your finger.You'll be taken to the home screen again, where you can choose a different app, or go back to using a single app by tapping on the left side of the screen.

3. Start using Slide Over


Like Split View, Slide Over is a productivity feature that lets you use apps at a smaller size -- about the size of an iPhone screen -- and have them "float" over another app.Here's how to use it:

1. Open the application you want to use.

2. Tap the three-dot button near the top of the screen.

3. Tap the swipe button on the right side of the menu.

4. You will be redirected to your home screen.Choose other apps you want to use.

Now you can drag the app to move it to the left or right of your screen.If you want to opt out of this feature, click the three-dot button at the top of the app and click the full screen button to the left of the menu.

4. Take a screenshot with your iPad

These days, you can even take screenshots with your Apple Watch if you want, so you know your iPad can do the same.However, how you take screenshots will depend on whether your iPad has a home button.

To take a screenshot with an iPad without a Home button, you need to press the top button and either volume button at the same time, then quickly release both buttons.You'll know you've tapped the screen because you'll feel a haptic response, and a small thumbnail will temporarily appear at the bottom left of the screen.

If your iPad has a home button, press the top button and the home button at the same time, then quickly release both buttons.Again, you'll know you snapped the screen because you'll see a small thumbnail on the bottom left of the screen.

5. Access your iPad's app switcher


Just like you can close all apps at once on the iPhone, you can do it on the iPad with the help of the app switcher.

The app switcher lets you see all your open apps.You can choose an app to go to, or close them when you no longer need them.This is the way.

If your iPad has a Home button, quickly double-tap the Home button.If your iPad doesn't have a Home button, swipe up from the bottom to pause in the center of the screen.

You will see all your open applications.Tap an app to open it, or press and drag the app up to close it.

6. Add the app to the iPad's Dock


Your iPad, like a Mac, has a Dock at the bottom of your screen. The left side of the Dock is any app you want, and the right side is the last app you opened.On the far left, you should see the App Library button, which will be covered in a moment.

You can quickly add or remove apps from the iPad's Dock by:

1. Press and hold your home screen until the app starts shaking.

2. Drag the app you want to the Dock and place it where you want.

3. To remove an app from the Dock, drag the app from the Dock and place it on the Home screen.

4. Tap your home screen to stop the app from shaking.

7. Access your iPad's app library


The App Library is where all your apps are stored.That way, you can keep only your most-used apps on the home screen and keep the rest in the app library.

There are two ways that you can access the application library.First, you can click the App Library button on the right side of the Dock.Don't worry, if you don't like the button, you can delete the app library from the iPad's Dock.

Second, you can open the App Library by swiping left on the home screen until you reach the App Library.

8. Use Search to find everything on your iPad


As you probably know, the search function lets you search for anything on your iPad.You can use the search function in many different ways, from opening applications to searching the web.

To use Search, all you need to do is swipe down on the home screen.A search bar will pop up near the middle of the screen, and you can try searching for anything you want.

9. Start using Siri on iPad


If you know and love Siri, you should know how to set it up on your iPad.This is what you need to do:

1. Open the Settings application.

2. Scroll down to Siri and Search.

3. Enable listening to "Hey, Siri".

4. Follow the instructions to finish setting up Siri.

Now that you've set up Siri, all you need to do is say "Hey, Siri" and the virtual assistant will appear at the bottom right of your screen.Likewise, you can use Siri by long-pressing the button at the top.

10. Customize your home screen


You can instantly add your favorite apps and widgets to your home screen.

All you need to do is press and hold the home screen until the apps start shaking.You can drag and drop any app from your app library to your home screen.Also, to delete an app from the home screen, you can tap the minus button at the top right of the app, then tap Delete app.You can then choose to delete the app or delete it from the home screen.

To add widgets, you can tap the plus button at the top left of the screen.Select the widget you want and drag it where you want it.
