Here’s everything you need to know about iPad, straight from Apple. This definitive guide helps you get started using iPad and discover all the amazing things it can do.
Please, just produce a PDF of each user manual
When trying to teach an elderly, computer-illiterate person the basics of using an iPad, it would be very helpful to be able to print down an entire manual or sections of the manual. An electronic-only manual is useless for this demographic.
Uh, why isn’t this installed on my new iPad Pro?
Apple has fantastic marketing, however there Out Of Box Experience (OOBE) is severaly lacking because there is NO User Guide included with the device. Instead, we have to do a Google Search and find out that the arcane User Guide is on Apple Books, so I have to install that App just to read the User Guide.
At 728 pages in length, it’s a long read, that’s for sure.
What I really wanted to learn about was how to use Split View, and the explanation in the User Guide was deficient, so I ended up watching a YouTube video by a user, and then it finally worked for me.
Yeah, I’m a long-time iPad Air user, so at least that device had a physical Home button, while the latest iPad Pro eschews the Home button, requiring me to learn another upward swipe movement.
The Power button can be used for single tap, double tap, triple tap, long hold, hold with up volume, hold with down volume, uh huh, so you get the idea, lots of bizarre sequences to memorize. I’ll be using the Command+Tab to quickly task switch between apps, along with the Split View and Slide View features.
So Apple, next time just include the User Guide, pre-installed on all iPad devices. I’d even recommend that you open the User Guide as a user does their first login, there should be no hunting. Or, better yet, a series of Videos to demonstrate how to use this fine touch device, because words never caption the simplicity that a video does.
Excellent Gide app

I can’t get my iPad open so hope this book might shine som light on that issue?
User guide 7 ipad
Doesn’t open after download..however, it opened in my iPhone 10
Some instructions are not accurate for 13.2.3. I am having to do a time limited Google search to figure out how to perform some of the items.
I was very glad to see this one too!

Search function leave a lot to be desired. No index in front? Must I only use Bluetooth ear phones/headset?
