It’s no exaggeration to say that, since being introduced in 2010, Apple’s iPad range has changed the world. Even if you don’t realise it, these sleek yet functional devices are being used to great effect in education, healthcare, retail and pretty much every other sector.
Whether you’ve leased or purchased your iPad, and however many you have, you’ll want to get the most out of your investment. Thankfully, we’re here to help.
We’ve put together a wealth of useful information on iPads recently, and below, we’ve pulled all of it together to create a convenient tips-packed guide.
Use your iPad as a second display
Having dual monitors can make your MacBook or desktop computer so much easier to use. You have more space to keep essential programs and widgets, instead of having to close your main windows every time you need something.
Not many people realise it but your iPad can be used in lieu of a second monitor, to provide a handy second screen. Perfect if you’re travelling and don’t fancy lugging a full-size monitor and stand with you.
