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
Brown, Monica Kamsvaag, Ron Bilodeau, Jamey Harvey, 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. Katherine Ippoliti’s graphics work in past and present editions also
deserves a shout-out, as does Phil Simpson for his wonderful iOS fonts.
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, my partner
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

consumer 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 2013, Apple released the fifth generation of the iPad, a slimmeddown full-size version dubbed the iPad Air, and the second version of its
smaller sidekick, the iPad Mini, now with a super-sharp Retina display.
Building on its success with the iPads that came before, this latest set of
iPads bring zippier processors, lots of free Apple software for work and play,
and the bright new iOS 7 operating system to the table.
Apple has now sold 170 million iPads. So why has the tablet proven so popular, even among its increased competition? One theory: The world has shifted
to an online and on-the-go lifestyle. Tablets and smartphones are outselling
traditional computers, 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.
Apple embraced this “post-PC” world in 2011 with the arrival of its iCloud
service. You don’t have to connect your iPad to your computer to set it up,
fill it up, or back it up anymore. Your iPad can be your primary window to
the Internet for work, play, and cat videos—no bulky laptop needed, because
you’re living in an airy ecosystem where all your stuff is safely online, Up
There if you need it. Even your music, videos, and ebooks await you in iCloud.
And thanks to the 475,000 third-party tablet-specific apps 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 may be 475,00 more reasons why it’s still 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: “Tap Home→Settings→Wallpapers & Brightness→Choose
Wallpaper and then tap the photo you want to use.” That’s shorthand for a longer
set of instructions like this: “From the iPad’s Home screen, tap the Settings icon to
go the Settings screen. On the Settings screen, tap Wallpapers & Brightness and
then, on the screen that appears, tap Choose Wallpaper. On the next screen, tap the
photo you want to use.” Our shorthand system keeps things snappier than these
windy instructions do, and get you cruising on your iPad more quickly.

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.

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).”
Master these techniques and you’ll have all the technical background you need to
enjoy iPad: The Missing Manual.

Set Up Your iPad

SINCE ITS ARRIVAL FEWER than four years ago, Apple’s tablet com-

puter has been adopted by millions of people, and adapted in countless
ways, including as a gaming arcade, a laptop substitute, and a batterypowered media machine that can both play—and make—movies. In
November 2013, the fifth version of the 10-inch iPad, now dubbed the
iPad Air, hit the scene. The second generation of the popular iPad Mini
also arrived, bringing with a faster processor and, best of all, a Retina
display that made everything on its 8-inch screen look twice as sharp as
the screen on the original 2012 Mini.
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 tablet, you need to set it up 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 setting up your new iPad. To do that, turn the page.

Meet the iPad
THE FIRST IPAD APPEARED in the spring of 2010,

and the tablet’s been so popular that Apple has
updated it four times since, making the screen
sharper, the processor faster, and the syncing
more seamless. Apple debuted the iPad 2 in
2011. The third- and fourth-generaton iPads,
released in March and November 2012
respectively, sported the high-resolution
Retina display. And that fall 2012
release saw the debut of the iPad’s
little brother, the original iPad Mini.
In October 2013, after 170 million
iPads had been snapped up around the
world, Apple introduced its fifth-generation
full-size tablet, called the iPad Air, the lightest,
fastest iPad yet, available with a black or white
front. That same day, Apple added the super-sharp
Retina display to the iPad Mini (skip to page 4 to read
about the Mini’s capabilities).

The iPad Air

While older iPad models still float around eBay, Apple and other outlets sell four
tablets as new these days: the iPad Air, the iPad 2 (an entry-level option at a
lower price), the original Pad Mini, and the Pad Mini with Retina display.

The iPad Air vs. the iPad 2
So what’s the difference between the two larger models, the
iPad Air and the iPad 2? Basically, it’s a matter of screen and
speed. The fifth-generation iPad sports a robust A7 processor, an M7 motion coprocessor that handles accelerometer and
compass duties, a high-definition Retina display with a thinner
frame around the screen, and a 5-megapixel back camera. This
iPad can record video at 1080p resolution with the rear camera
and at 720p with the front FaceTime camera; both resolutions
qualify as high-definition. The Air is available in four storage
capacities: 16 gigabytes (GB), 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB. All
four iPads come in either WiFi-only or Wi-Fi + Cellular models.
Cellular-capable iPads can get online through zippy 4G LTE
networks when there’s no WiFi signal around.

The iPad 2

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
2 Chapter1

a rear camera with around 1 megapixel of resolution for still photos (which isn’t
very sharp), but it can record video at a resolution of 720p. The iPad 2 is only
available with a 16 GB drive, but it comes 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 10-inch iPad, but it still runs 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 display iPad 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, Verizon, Sprint, or T-Mobile) 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 to 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 even need to eject the card. Usually, you don’t—unless the iPad has 4G/3G troubles and you need to replace the card, or you travel internationally and
want to pop in a card from a local carrier. See page 75 for more on global iPad travel.

Meet the iPad Mini

WHEN THE ORIGINAL IPAD debuted in 2010, Apple executives said the 10-inch
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 eventually come along—
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 and it went on to snag
60% of total quarterly iPad sales in its first year, according to some analysts.
The Mini was a hit, and the thing people most wished for—a sharper screen—was
granted in November 2013, when the Mini with Retina display landed.
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, Apple
released a smaller version called the iPod Mini. That 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, played the same music,
and had the same buttons and switches as its big brother, so does the iPad Mini.
This smaller iPad runs the same internal software (iOS 7), plays all the same
media files and apps, and has the same arrangement of buttons, ports, and
switches as the iPad Air.
In fact, the iPad Air and iPad Mini are so similar, this book often refers to everything in Apple’s tablet line as “iPad.”

iPad Mini with Retina Display vs. the Original iPad Mini
The iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina display (Apple’s formal name for it; its
friends call it Retina Mini) have almost identical internal parts. The main difference between iPads big and small is the precise screen size, which, for those
with rulers, happens to be 9.7 inches for the Air versus 7.9 inches for the Mini.
Like its Air-y older sibling, the Retina Mini also burns up the airwaves with an A7
processor, the M7 motion coprocessor (designed for handling data from movement-oriented games and fitness apps), and the latest WiFi technology for the
peppy wireless-network connections. The new Mini also comes in four sizes that
fit varying amounts of your digital stuff: 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB.
The original Mini, on the other hand, has more in common with the iPad 2 in
terms of processor power and screen technology. Both run the older dual-core
A5 chip, and neither has a Retina display. The original Mini, still for sale as the
cheapest ticket to iPadWorld, now only comes in the 16 GB size, but it’s still a
great starter iPad, especially for kids.
Like the latest iPads, both Minis use the smaller 8-pin Lightning connector port,
have the same FaceTime HD front camera and 5-megapixel rear camera for
high-def video (Chapter 14), and offer the Siri personal assistant software (page
40). And you get to choose between a white or black Mini.
Like the big iPads, the original Mini and Retina Mini come in a Wi-Fi model for
use with wireless networks, and in a more expensive Wi-Fi + Cellular model that
lets you jump online through the same 4G LTE data networks that smartphones
use. The Minis work with all four major U.S. wireless carriers, too. 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 iPad (less
than seven-tenths of a pound) is huge for many people. The Mini’s size makes it
easier to tote around and that, coupled with its lower price, means it’s a more
attractive option for students and people who need to stay online but want
something bigger than a smartphone screen, yet smaller than the regular iPad.
The Mini fits in the palms of
(most) adult hands. It uses
the same operating system,
runs the same apps, and
sports the same Lightning
adapters and accessories
as its big brothers. 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

the letter “i,” all these products are sleek gadgets with a minimum of buttons to
disrupt their smooth skin. The iPad family is no exception.
Run your finger along the tablet’s top edge and you’ll find a small thin 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 prompt (’ slide to power off) asking you to confirm your request.
Touch the arrow, and slide your finger along the screen from left to right. If
you’re not going to use your tablet 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 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. Press 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 Sleep/Wake 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 338.)
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 361). 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 iPad 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 15).
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 14 for more about
videos, and Chapter 15 for details on snapping still shots with the iPad.
 NOTE 

The iPad 2, third- and fourth-generation iPads, the iPad Air, and both iPad Minis
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 you actually move the iPad to control gameplay.
