Acknowledgments
I would like to thank David Pogue for getting me into the book business back in
2002 and for being a terrific editor on our mutual projects over the years. Also
thanks to editor Peter McKie for making sense of things during the mad scramble, and to all the Missing Manual folks at O’Reilly Media—especially Kristen
Borg, Monica Kamsvaag, Ron Bilodeau, and Frank Deras for the custom iPad
photography gracing these pages.
Big thanks to Mac guru Alan Yacavone for sharing his knowledge on all things
Apple and to Matthew Silver for the valiant loan of his brand-new iPad for a
photo shoot. Katherine Ippoliti’s graphics work also deserves a shout-out.
And thanks to the friends who don’t get offended when I go into the deep, dark
Deadline Zone, and to my family (especially and most importantly, Betsy Book)
for putting up with me during the long hours in the writing corner with The UK
1940s Radio Station streaming forth from the Web.
—J.D. Biersdorfer

Introduction
Apple announced the original iPad on January 27, 2010, and the

technology world hasn’t been the same since. Customers rushed to buy the
tablet, snapping up more than 300,000 the day it went on sale. Competitors
rushed to copy it, with Microsoft, Google, Samsung, Motorola, Amazon, and
others creating their own variations on the app-friendly touchscreen device.
In the fall of 2012, Apple released the fourth generation of the iPad and the
first version of its smaller sidekick, the iPad Mini. Building on its success with
the original iPad, the iPad 2, and the third-gen iPad with Retina display, this
latest pair of iPads adds zippier WiFi performance, FaceTime HD cameras for
videochats, and the new Lightning connector for charging and syncing.
Apple has now sold more than 100 million iPads. So why has its tablet proven
so popular, even as competitors stampede to put their own interpretations in
stores? One theory: It’s a mobile world, and a thin Internet-connected device
that can expertly handle communications, entertainment, and school/business tasks—and look extremely stylish to boot—is going to be a winner.
You can add to that Apple’s new emphasis on the “post-PC” world, where
you don’t have to connect your iPad to your computer to set it up, fill it up, or
back it up. The arrival of Apple’s iCloud service in 2011 means that your iPad
can be your primary window to the Internet for work, play, and cat videos—
no heavy, bulky laptop needed, because you’re living in an airy ecosystem
where all your stuff is safely online, Up There if you need it.
And thanks to the 275,000 third-party tablet-specific apps already available,
the iPad can move beyond being just a platter that serves up media and Web
content. In fact, it can pretty much be whatever you want it to be.
Come to think of it, that’s probably why it’s so popular.

About This Book
The small card that Apple includes with each iPad is enough to get your tablet
up and running, charged, and ready to frolic on the Web. But you probably want
to know more about all the great things it can do and where to find its coolest
features. This book gives you more iPad info than that wee card. It’s neatly organized by task and topic, and it has nice big color pictures.

About→These→Arrows
Throughout this book, and throughout the Missing Manual series, you’ll find
sentences like this one: “Tap Home→Setting→General→iTunes Wi-Fi Sync→Sync
Now.” That’s shorthand for a longer series of instructions that go something like this:
“From the iPad’s Home screen, tap the Settings icon to go the Settings screen. On
the Settings screen, tap iTunes Wi-Fi Sync and then, on the screen that appears,
press the Sync Now button.” Our shorthand system keep things more snappy than
these long, drawn-out instructions.

The Very Basics
You’ll learn how to interact with your iPad using its touchscreen in Chapter 2, but
you need to be familiar with a few desktop computer terms and concepts, too, so
you can use iTunes, the iPad’s media manager:
• Clicking. To click means to point the arrow cursor at something on the screen
and then to press and release the button on the mouse (or laptop trackpad). To
double-click, of course, means to click twice in rapid succession, again without
moving the cursor. To drag means to move the cursor while pressing the button.
On the iPad itself, a finger tap functions like a computer mouse click.

When you’re told to Ctrl+click something on a Windows PC, or C-click
something on the Mac, you click while pressing the Ctrl or C key (both of
which you can find near each computer’s space bar).
• Menus. The menus are the words at the top of your screen: File, Edit, and so on.
Click one to make a list of commands appear, as though they’re written on a
window shade you just pulled down.
• Keyboard shortcuts. Jumping up to menus in iTunes takes time. That’s why
you’ll find keyboard quickies that perform the same functions sprinkled throughout this book—Windows shortcuts first, followed by Mac shortcuts in parentheses, like this: “To quickly summon the Preferences box, press Ctrl+comma
(C-comma).”
If you’ve mastered this much information, you have all the technical background you
need to enjoy iPad : The Missing Manual.

Set Up Your iPad

Since its arrival just a few years ago, Apple’s tablet computer
has been adopted by millions of people, and adapted in countless ways,
including as a gaming arcade, a laptop substitute, and a battery-powered
media machine that can both play—and make—movies. In November
2012, the regular iPad got a sibling in the form of the iPad Mini, the little
iPad that can do everything its big brother can, except take up as much
space.

Whether it’s showcasing your vacation photos, plotting your position on
a 3D map, or describing faraway lands in travel apps like 1,000 Places
to See Before You Die, an iPad can whisk you away to new worlds. But
before you can take off with your new iPad, you need to set up your
tablet for the first time, learn a few basic controls, charge its battery, and
stock it with media. That’s where this chapter comes in.
It’s said that a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. So let
your first step be turning on your new iPad. To learn how to do that, turn
the page.

Meet the iPad

The first Ipad appeared in the spring of 2010 and it’s been so popular,

Apple has updated the product three times since then, making the screen
sharper, the processor faster, and the syncing more seamless. After the original
iPad, Apple debuted the iPad 2 in 2011 and the third-gen iPad in March 2012.
In October 2012, after 100 million iPads had been snapped up around the world,
Apple introduced its fourth-generation iPad, called the iPad with Retina display.
That same day, Apple introduced a smaller version of the big iPad, called the
iPad Mini; skip to page 4 to read about its capabilities.
Today, you can choose from three iPad models at Apple and other outlets: the
iPad with Retina display, the iPad 2 (kept around as an entry-level option at a
lower price), and the iPad Mini. Older, used iPads continue to float around as
well, for sale by their owners on eBay and refurbished electronics stores. The
good news is that this book covers all the iPad models.

The iPad With Retina Display vs. the iPad 2
What’s the difference between the two big iPads, the Retina display and the
iPad 2? Basically, it’s a matter of screen and speed. The fourth-generation iPad
sports a robust A6X processor; a pixel-packing, high-definition Retina display;
and a 5-megapixel back camera. This iPad can record video in 1080p resolution
with the rear camera and in 720p with the front FaceTime camera; both qualify
as high-definition. The Retina model is available in three storage capacities:
16 gigabytes (GB), 32 GB, and 64 GB. All three sizes come in either WiFi-only
or Wi-Fi + Cellular models. Cellular-capable iPads can connect to zippy 4G LTE
networks to get online when there’s no WiFi signal around.
2 Chapter1

The iPad 2, on the other hand, cruises along on a slower A5 processor and has a
screen that’s half the resolution of the Retina display, though it’s still crisp. It has
a rear camera with around 1 megapixel resolution for still photos (which is not
very sharp), but can record video at a resolution of 720p. New iPad 2s are only
available with a 16 GB drive, but they come in both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G models;
the latter gets online via a wireless network or by tapping into the slower 3G cellular networks from AT&T or Verizon. With its more modest specs, the iPad 2 is
the cheapest iPad out there, but it still runs all the apps and media in your life.

What’s in the Box
No matter which iPad you bought, big or small, you get the same components
inside its glossy white box. Beyond the tablet itself, here’s what awaits you when
you shred the shrinkwrap:
• A white USB cable. The Retina and the Mini use the smaller Lightning connector on one end, while the iPad 2 uses the big Dock Connector plug.
• A square-shaped USB power adapter for charging the iPad’s battery.
• A little card of basic quick-start information that’s not nearly as fun or as
colorful as this book.

 Note 

If you have a Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad (AT&T , Sprint, or Verizon) or an iPad with 3G service
from AT&T, you’ll find a tiny piece of wire that looks like a paperclip stuck to the pamphlet that came
with your iPad. This highly technical piece of gear serves one purpose: to open the micro-SIM card
tray on a 4G/3G iPad (Verizon iPad 2 models don’t use SIM cards). You insert the pin into a tiny hole
on the left edge of the iPad and pop open the tray. SIM cards (short for Subscriber Identity Module)
store information about your cellular account. The Mini’s card is so tiny it’s called a nano-SIM card,
but you may wonder why you need to eject the card in the first place. Usually, you don’t—unless
the iPad has 4G/3G troubles and you need to replace the card, or if you travel internationally and
want to pop in a card from a local carrier for data service. See page 73 for more on global iPad
travel.

Meet the iPad Mini

When the Original iPad debuted in 2010, Apple executives said the 9.7inch screen and general form factor worked best for the tablet experience and
that the company had no plans to make a smaller model. Still, that didn’t stop
the rumor blogs from speculating that a smaller iPad would be along eventually—especially as 7-inch tablets from Amazon, Google, and Samsung began to
take a big chomp out of Apple’s tablet market share and juicy profits.

Finally, after years of rumors, leaks, and blogger wishes swirling around every
press conference, Apple announced a smaller version of the iPad in October
2012. The new model was officially dubbed the iPad Mini.
In a way, Apple’s broadened iPad line repeats the company’s history with its
iPod music players. The original player arrived in 2001, and then in 2004, a
smaller version called the iPod Mini was released. The iPod Mini did pretty much
everything the regular iPod could do, all while being smaller and more colorful.
Just as the iPod Mini ran the same operating system as its big brother’s, played
the same music, and had the same buttons and switches, so does the iPad Mini.
This smaller edition of the iPad also runs iOS 6, plays all the same media files
and apps, and has the same arrangement of buttons, ports, and switches as the
fourth-generation regular iPad.
In fact, the iPad and iPad Mini are so similar, this book often refers to everything
in Apple’s tablet line as “iPad.”
But while the two types of iPads work exactly the same, they do have some
internal differences (aside from the screen size, which, for those keeping score
at home, happens to be 9.7 inches for the iPad versus 7.9 inches for the Mini).

4 Chapter1

www.it-ebooks.info


Inside its aluminum-and-glass casing, the iPad Mini actually has more in common with the iPad 2 than it does with the fourth-generation iPad.
For example, the smaller screen doesn’t use Apple’s high-resolution Retina
display—the Mini’s screen has the same number of pixels as the original iPad and
the iPad 2’s screen. But even though the screen’s smaller, you get more pixels
per inch on the mighty Mini: its 7.9-inch display stuffs its 1,024 × 768 screen
resolution with 163 pixels per inch resolution, compared to the iPad 2’s 132 pixels
per inch.
Both the Mini and the iPad 2 use Apple’s older dual-core A5 processor. It’s a
chip with zip, but not the turbo engine that powers the fourth-gen iPad, which
screams along on a dual-core A6X processor with quad-core graphics for
superbly rendered games, photos, and videos on its Retina display.
But like the latest iPad, the Mini uses the smaller 8-pin Lightning connector port,
has the same FaceTime HD front camera and 5-megapixel rear camera for highdefinition video (Chapter 15), and can use the Siri personal assistant software
(page 40). Both these newer iPads come in 16 gigabytes (GB), 32 GB, and 64 GB
capacities for storing your videos, photos, apps, games, and other stuff. You can
also choose between a white or black model.
Like the big iPads, the Mini comes in a Wi-Fi model for use with wireless networks—and the more expensive Wi-Fi + Cellular models that let you jump online
through the same 4G LTE data networks that smartphones use. Chapter 4
explains all the ways to get online with your iPad, no matter its size.
Make no mistake—the smaller size and lighter weight of this petite ’Pad (less
than seven-tenths of a pound) is huge for many people. The iPad Mini is even
more portable than the regular
iPad, and with its lower price,
a more attractive option for
schools and people who need to
stay online but want something
bigger than a smartphone screen
for email and the Web.
The iPad Mini fits in the palms
of (most) adult hands. It runs
the same operating system as
its older sibling, it runs the same
apps, and it accepts the same
Lightning adapters and accessories. Perhaps Apple itself said it
best: “The iPad Mini is every inch
an iPad.”

Turn the iPad On and Off
Think of Apple’s iMac, iPhone, and iPod Touch. In addition to starting with

“i,” all these products are sleek gadgets with a minimum of buttons to disrupt
their smooth skin. The iPad and the iPad Mini are no exception.
Run your finger along the tablet’s top edge and you’ll find a small black button
on the right (circled). It’s got a long name: On/Off, Sleep/Wake.

Here’s what it does:

• It turns the iPad off and on. To turn your iPad off completely—so that it
gobbles no power at all—press and hold down this button until you see an
on-screen arrow asking you to confirm your request. Touch the arrow with
your finger and slide it along the screen from left to right. If you’re not going
to use your ’Pad for a few days, this total shutdown is the way to conserve as
much battery life as possible.
To turn the iPad back on, press the
On/Off button again for a second or
two, until you see the Apple logo.
After a minute or so of boot-up
gyrations, you’re back in business.

• It puts the iPad to sleep and wakes it up. Tap the button briefly to turn off
the iPad’s screen and put it in power-saving Sleep (standby) mode. To wake
the iPad from its power nap, quickly press the button again. (You may also
need to wake your iPad if you leave it untended for more than a few minutes,
because it goes to sleep all by itself to save power. To change its nod-off settings, see page 343.)
Whenever you turn your iPad on or wake it from its electronic slumber, you end
up on a locked Home screen (unless you have one of Apple’s Smart Covers; see
page 362). To get to the iPad’s goodies, swipe your finger along the slider in the
direction of the arrow. Why does the Home screen lock itself? Because on a
touchscreen device, one unintended tap when the ’Pad is in your briefcase or
bag can turn on a
program without you
knowing it, and poof,
there goes that
battery charge.

Find the Home Button and Cameras
There’s only one switch on the front of the iPad: the Home button (circled
below). This round, gently indented switch sits in the bottom-center of the iPad’s
black or white picture frame (known as a bezel in geek-speak). You’ll probably
use this button more than any other in your iPad adventures.

Front Camera

The Home button may seem like a humble little control, but it has a wider range
of powers than you might expect. Page 20 gives you the lowdown on its versatile role, which changes depending on what screen you’re on and how many
times you press it. For now, though, think of the Home button as another way to
wake up your iPad—gently press it to wake a sleeping tablet.
Every iPad (except the original model) comes with two tiny cameras built into
the tablet’s front and back. The camera on the front, which looks like a small pinhole, is smack dab in the middle of the bezel’s top edge. This is the camera you
use for FaceTime chats and wacky Photo Booth self-portraits (Chapter 16).
The rear camera is, naturally, on the back of the iPad. It’s the small round lens
below the Sleep/Wake switch. You use it to take still pictures and shoot videos—
which you can then edit right on the tablet. See Chapter 15 for information about
videos and Chapter 16 for details on snapping still shots with the iPad.
 Note 

The third- and fourth-generation iPad models, the iPad 2, and the iPad Mini
each have a built-in gyroscope, an orientation sensor that tells the tablet which way
you’re holding and moving it. Games (Chapter 10) that incorporate the gyroscope can be
thrilling to play since they move with you.
