Thankfully, this article will go over some tips to maximize your iPad experience.
When you get your iPad it is set to only show the first two lines of any given message in the preview mode. You may want to be able to see more content. To change this, you’ll need to open Settings, and then press on Mail. Under Mail select Contacts, then Calender to change the Preview mail options for more lines.
Want a manual for your iPad? You’ll have to download it. Apple is all about minimalism and they would rather you download one than to include one with all of their products.

Do your best to take care of your iPad so you do not have to replace this expensive device anytime soon. Many people buy screen protectors for use with their iPads. These are thin plastic and give heightened protection to the screen area of the iPad. Clean the screen only with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use window cleaners or other household products.
