New iPad in Easy StepsISBN: 9781840785357
The New iPad in easy steps helps you make the most of this new
version of the iPad, launched in March 2012, including its key
new features, which are:
Four times more pixels than iPad 2. Razor-sharp text. Richer
colours. The Retina display transforms the entire iPad
experience. So everything looks and feels incredibly lifelike and
perfectly detailed. The Retina display on the new iPad features
a 2048-by-1536 resolution, 44 percent greater colour saturation,
and 3.1 million pixels - in the same 9.7-inch space. That's four
times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an
HDTV. The new and powerful A5X chip drives power to every one
of the 3.1 million pixels in the display and its quad-core
graphics processing makes everything you do on iPad feel
incredibly responsive. From the little things like swiping,
scrolling, and pinching to the big things like editing photos in
the new iPhoto, applying titles and transitions in iMovie, and,
of course, playing games.
Instant on. Touch and go
Each time you press the Home button or open the Smart Cover, it's
ready to go, instantly. That's the work of flash storage. It's
fast and reliable, so you can get to your apps and do whatever
you need to do, pronto.
The iSight camera
5-megapixel iSight camera. Designed with advanced optics, it lets
you take photos and shoot 1080p HD video with automatic video
Next-generation wireless technology. Ultrafast 4G LTE
Built with the latest in wireless technology, the new iPad lets
you connect to fast data networks around the world - up to 4G
LTE. The new iPad offers the most comprehensive support for
networks around the world. It's designed with cellular antennas
that access a larger frequency spectrum. That means you can get
online almost anywhere you. You can even pop in a local SIM card
to get a connection when you're travelling.
iPad as a personal hotspot
Share the high-speed data connection on your iPad. If your
carrier supports it, iPad can act as a personal hotspot for
connecting up to five devices - such as a MacBook Air, an iPod
touch, or another iPad - over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB.
iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, mail, contacts,
calendars, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all
your devices. So if you buy a song, take a photo, or edit a
calendar event on your iPad, iCloud makes sure it appears on your
Mac, iPhone, and iPod touch, too.
Write an email, send a text, search the web, create a note and do
it all with only your voice. Instead of typing, tap the
microphone icon on the keyboard. Then say what you want to say
while your iPad listens. Tap Done and, just like that, your
spoken words become written words. Dictation also works with
third-party apps, so you can do things like update your Facebook
status or share a thought on your Twitter feed.
The App Store is home to over 200,000 apps and counting - all
made just for iPad, many of them free. Apple's beautiful iPhoto
app on the new iPad is just one of thousands of apps that let you
do things with iPad you never thought possible. With iPhoto in
the picture, the iLife family of apps for iPad - including
GarageBand and iMovie - is complete.
Whether it's the new album you bought, photos of your Barcelona
escapade, or an HD movie, AirPlay lets you stream wirelessly
what's on your iPad straight to your speakers and HDTV.
The New iPad in easy steps is an ideal guide to help you make the
most of your new device.
