5 iPad and iPad Pro Tips and Tricks You Might Not Know

 hi everyone Aaron here for Meraj Aman  and I wanted to share with you five simple iPad tips and tricks that you might notknow and these will apply not only to the iPad pro that I have here but anyiPad that runs iPad OS 

so your iPad air 2 and newer and so the first tip has todo with taking a screenshot there's kind of an interesting way to do that but ifyou're not familiar with taking one already if you have a normal iPad youcan simply press the power sleep/wake button and the 

home button at the sametime just click them and it will take a screenshot if you have an iPad pro likeI have here what you want to do is press volume up and the power sleep/wakebutton at the same time and it will snap a screenshot however if you have anApple pencil 

there's a better way so maybe you want to take a screenshot of awebsite we just dragged in from the corner and it will take a screenshot soyou just need to drag in from the corner here and it will take a screenshot wecan do that again let me delete this I'll 

show you again drag in from thecorner and it takes a screenshot then you can extend it to full-page so maybeyou want the full page of a screenshot maybe you want to mark this up with anApple pencil circle this 

here you can do that and then you can simply save it hitdone and then save PDF files so you have that ability and it's really nice youcan just do that with the Apple pencil now the second tip has to do with thekeyboard I get this question a lot and people ask me how can I use the quickpath keyboard or sort of where you swipe 

around with your finger to type on thekeyboard but on an iPad so if you're not using any of the accessories with akeyboard or a trackpad what you want to do is go to say notes or something thatuses the keyboard and all you need to do is pinch pinch and it shrinks thekeyboard now you have a smaller keyboard where 

you can just move it around withthis little line down here and then we can say hi how are you today and you canjust swipe around to get that written out so it's really nice you can extendit like this or press and hold on the keyboard in the bottom right until itsays floating 

and then we tap on floating and we've got a floatingkeyboard so it's really simple but it's nice that we have that ability now inaddition to that you can also move the cursor around and you probably alreadyknow this if you've had an iPad while but you can move the 

cursor aroundusing two fingers so you'll see the cursor up here I'll just move it backand forth using two fingers it becomes a trackpad so it's really nice it's a niceway to select text kind of move the cursor exactly where you want and thenselect what you want so it's a really 

simple way to do that now there'ssomething else we can do in text that we can use our iPhone with to go back andforth between the iPad so this is something I actually do quite a lot soon my iPhone maybe I'm editing a text document infact this is the same note 

that I have on the iPad that I just created maybe Iwant to copy this text but I need it on the iPad and I don't have it there allwe need to do is select the text maybe copy the whole thing hit copy and aslong as you're using iCloud on the same account go back to the iPad 

and tappaste and it will copy from the iPhone over to the iPad you can do this inReverse you can do this between an iPad and a Mac as long as they're on the sameiCloud account Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are turned on 

it will just simply drop overto the next device it's really simple to use and that goes along with the nextthing now something else that we can do between devices is as long as we're inthe same iCloud account again and 

that copy and paste works what you can do issomething called handoff and this is something I use all the time so maybeI'm reading something on my iPhone and it's a smaller screen and I want tocontinue reading it on my larger iPad maybe I'll go into this 

website which ismy own website and I want to open it on the iPad well as soon as I open it youmay have noticed this icon appear in the dock on the iPad I simply go to the iPadtap on the dock here and it opens up right where I was before now this worksin multiple 

apps so this could work in notes it can work in anything you'reworking on on your iPhone it goes back and forth a lot of people aren'tfamiliar with that but it's something that I use all of the time now somethingelse that's really interesting that is actually new to me when 

I wasresearching for this video I hadn't seen before is something that you can do withSiri or you could type it in as well but we can play radio stations on the iPhoneand iPad now for example if you're in your car and maybe you're traveling toand from work and you want to continue listening towhatever you were 

listening to in the car on the radio you can continue tolisten to that through the iPad or the iPhone it's pretty simple you just needto ask Siri now you will need to know the call letters and the channel orstation numbers so that you can tell it what to play but as long as you havethat you're good to go so for example I'm in 

the CharlotteNorth Carolina area I just did a simple search for radio stations and I'm justpicking one randomly so let's go ahead and try this play wkq see 104.7 radioand now we'll play and you'll see it says from i heart radio i don't have iheart radio installed so it will play either way if i hit open i heart radio it will play

either way so as long asyou ask Siri to play it and it's available you'll be able to continuelistening to your radio station on your iPad or your iPhone now if you have aniPad that you're using with a keyboard such as this magic keyboard or maybeyou're just using any 

keyboard of your choice there's a shortcut that I use allof the time on not only the iPad but also a Mac as well so it's spotlightsearch and it allows you to do a lot more than you think so if you holdcommand and hit space it brings up search and maybe you want to open 

an appyou don't know where it is on your iPad all you need to do is maybe type typeapp store hit return it'll bring you to the App Store maybe we'll type Safari itwill bring you to Safari and you don't really need to type the whole thing youcan type just SAF hit enter and you're in 

so I use this for all sorts of thingsall the time and you can even use it for things like math so four plus four andit gives you the answer right there so it's a really simple way to use youriPad it's a very fast way to navigate around and if you're used to using it onthe 

Mac it translates very well here and maybe you're looking for other keyboardshortcuts just hold command and it will give you the keyboard shortcuts for thescreen you're on so hopefully those iPad tips 

and tricks were helpful and new toyou
