Android tablets and iPads have become quite common in the last few years. Many of us are attracted towards these electronic gadgets due to the exceptional features they offer. However, if you happen to buy a new iPad, then you might not be aware of the initial things to do before using it.
Fortunately, almost all Apple devices particularly the iPads are incredibly well designed. In addition to that, these devices have an easy-to-use interface, which means that you can easily learn the basics and even the entire working of your tablet in just a few hours. Nonetheless, here are a few things to do after buying an iPad device.
Turn on the Device
The newly purchased iPad will usually be charged, which means that you don’t have to plug the device to a power source right away. Press the Home button of your iPad and turn the device on. A welcome note will be displayed on the screen when the device turns on, which is followed by a Slide to set up message. Complete the initial set up, select your country, and make other necessary changes.
Connect to the Internet
You can complete the initial setup and use the device even without an active internet connection. However, we highly recommend you to connect the device to the internet, as it will make your device a lot more productive and useful. During the setup, you can decide whether you want to enable the location on the device or not.
Add Security Measures
You will have to enter a pass-code or a touch ID to turn the device on. Using a touch ID or a pass-code is the best way to ensure that no one else has access to the contents in your iPad. However, you can turn off the security features if you want, but we highly recommend you to keep these security measures turned on, as it will offer more security to your device.
Create an Apple ID
If you want to make the most of your tablet, then you will have to download a few useful apps. Yet you will have to initially set up an Apple ID, if you want to download apps from your iTunes. So, make sure to create an Apple ID, as it will help you to browse and download the contents in the iTunes store.
