This Christmas thousands of people received iPad2’s as gifts.
For many the intuitive touch screen iOS operating system is easy to use while for others they want instructions and a printed manual.
The iPad2 doesn’t come with a printed instruction manual or manual on CD rom however there IS a Manual stored in the BOOKMARKS in the SAFARI Web Browser. Until recently I didn’t know this iPad User Guide was buried inside Safari and I’ve had my iPad 2 for 10 months.
To access the iPad User Guide simply open up Safari, then click on Bookmarks and scroll to the bottom where you’ll find iPad User Guide. Click on the Bookmark and Safari will open up an interactive iPad User Guide.
The iPad User Guide is also available as a FREE eBook from Apple. To get the user guide as an iBook, go to the iTunes store and serach download the iBooks app. Then launch iBooks and go to the iBooks store and search for iPad User Guide by Apple Inc. The eBook is a Free download and will teach you everything you need to know about iPad.
If you would prefer to have an iPad user guide in print or PDF format you can click on the following link and it will download an iPad IOS 5.0 user guide in PDF format directly from Apple’s server: ipad_user_guide.pdf
