Apple’s wildly popular iPad and new iPad Mini come jam-packed with features, like access to your media library from the Web, Siri voice control, and seamless Facebook and Twitter integration. But to tap your iPad’s potential, you need a trustworthy owner’s manual. This bestelling book shows you how to import, create, and play back media; sync and shop wirelessly; keep in touch over the Internet; and even take care of business.

The important stuff you need to know:

  • Take your media with you. Fill your iPad with music, photos, movies, TV shows, games, ebooks, and podcasts.
  • Tap new features in email. Create VIP and Flagged mailboxes, and insert photos or videos into messages on the fly.
  • Get online. Surf at warp speed with the streamlined Safari browser and the iPad’s new ultrafast WiFi connection or 4G LTE network.
  • Post to Facebook and Twitter. Update your status right from the iPad’s Camera, Photos, Maps, and Game Center apps.
  • Make photos public. Share selected photos over iCloud.
  • Find your way with Maps. Get turn-by-turn directions, soar over cityscapes in 3D, and read embedded Yelp reviews.
  • Dictate email. Speak email messages and notes and have your iPad type them up.
  • Stream with Airplay. Take stunning photos and HD video, and wirelessly beam the results to your big-screen TV.
