Welcome to Tips & Tricks: the essential iPad companion

We love how easy it is to use the iPad, but the wealth of capabilities it offers can be hard to keep up with. Apple doesn’t ship the iPad with a manual, which means millions of users sadly end up missing out on essential features and useful apps.

That’s where we come in! We’ve compiled hundreds of bite-sized tips and tricks, from the absolute basics right through to advanced productivity secrets. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, this digital guide will help you master your iPhone in no time.

Everything here based on Apple’s most recent iPad software, iPadOS 14. Though not essential, to get the most from this guide we recommend you use iPadOS 14 too. You can update for free in the Settings app under General > Software Update if you don’t have iPadOS 14 yet.

There are a few different ways to work through this app. While in the All Tips tab, tap any of the chapter headings to dive in and explore our 200+ tips in any order you like. If you’d prefer to read the tips through from start to finish like a book, simply swipe from right to left to turn the page and load the next tip.

We also recommend you dig into the rest of the Introduction articles for a selection of essentials to get you started: a Quickstart Guide for iPad beginners; a New in iPadOS 14 post outlining the latest features; and a Jargon Dictionary to help you better understand confusing tech phrases.

We hope you enjoy Tips & Tricks – happy reading!
