Wi-Fi Under Wi-Fi, you can turn your iPad's wireless connection on or off, and easily join nearby networks so you can access the internet. Once you join a network, your device will connect to it automatically whenever it's in range. To Turn Wi-Fi On or Off: Tap the Settings icon on your Home screen. Tap Wi-Fi in the left pane. Next to Wi-Fi, tap the control to turn it ON or OFF. Joining Networks To join a network that's in range (for example, your home's Wi- Fi, or a nearby public hotspot), look for it under Choose a Network. Then tap the network you want to use. If the network is secure, you'll need to enter a password in order to connect to it. If the network isn't secure, you can connect to it without a password, but you should think carefully before you do (especially if it's a public hotspot; for example, Wi-Fi at your local coffee shop). http://www.gcflearnfree.org/ipadbasics/7.2
To Set a Passcode: By default, iPad doesn't require a passcode to unlock it, but you can set one to help protect your device. Tap the Settings icon on your Home screen. Tap General in the left pane. Next to Passcode Lock, tap the control to view your options. Tap Turn Passcode On. Use the keypad to enter your 4-digit passcode.
Once you unbox your iPad, you’ll immediately want to connect the iPad’s USB cable to your default home machine and open iTunes. When iTunes launches you’ll be asked to activate the iPad, agree to its Terms and Conditions, and register your device.iTunes iTunes will serve as your iPad’s backup system and will suggest that you restore your iPad from a previous iPhone or iPod Touch backup if you have one of those devices or start with a clean content slate on your iPad. Next, you can choose to automatically sync applications, photos, music and videos. Choose wisely — depending on your media inventory, the initial sync process could take awhile. It is recommend to deselect the automatic sync options and customize your iPad preferences via iTunes after this step.
iTunes on your laptop or desktop will serve as your iPad’s home base. After the initial setup process, you will want to customize your iPad’s media content and configure your settings. Start by selecting your iPad in iTunes; it’s located under the Devices label in the left- hand menu bar. Info: From the Info tab you can choose to sync your address box contacts, iCal calendars, mail accounts, and Safari notes and bookmarks. In the advanced section you can elect to have iTunes sync your iPad’s contacts, calendars and mail accounts with your computer. Apps: This is where you’ll go to manage your iPad apps. If you own an iPhone or iPod Touch, you’ll notice that all of the apps you already own are pre-populated here. Select the apps that you want to appear on your iPad from the left-hand menu, which can by sorted by name, category or date. You can then drag-and-drop the ticked apps to switch them from one iPad page to another. You can also drag-and-drop individual pages to rearrange them. Music: The music tab will let you sync your entire music library or individually-selected playlists, artists and genres. Should you select the latter, you can manage those songs from the Music option below your iPad in the Devices section of the left-hand menu. Movies: In this section you can manage the movies that will be synced with your iPad. Use the drop down menu to specify whether you want to automatically sync all movies or just some of them. You can also scroll down to select to sync individual movie playlists. http://mashable.com/2010/04/03/ipad-setup/
WIFI must be on Updating Your Software Software Update is where you can check for - and download - iOS updates from Apple. Updates frequently include bug fixes and other improvements designed to enhance your experience with the iPad. To view updates, tap Software Update while in General Settings. Then tap Download and Install if an update is available. Locations Services is an optional setting that, when turned on, uses Wi-Fi and/or 3G or 4G to determine your current location. This data can be used by different apps in many different ways. This feature uses location data to help you find your iPad (and remotely protect it from misuse) if it's ever lost or stolen. You can also use it to make your iPad play a sound in the event that you've just misplaced it. To enable this feature, tap Find My iPad while in Location Services. Then tap the control to turn it ON or OFF. Find My iPad
Backing Up Your Ipad A manual backup is a good idea if you expect to exchange your device or if you plan on doing something that could wipe the information on your iPad. 1. Plug in your iPad to a computer running the latest version of iTunes. 2. Once the sync is complete, right-click the iPad under the DEVICES list and click Back Up from the menu that appears. Note: iPad backups will only save the device’s settings, not the applications, photos, videos, etc. Those items are saved if Sync for each of those categories is enabled.

Spotlighting: You can use the spotlight feature on your iPad to search for content located on your iPad. The search will return all results including documents, email, and apps with the query you type. This can be handy for finding content and launching apps. Instead of searching through numerous pages filled with apps, quickly find an app by using the spotlight function and the app name. iBooks: IBooks doesn't let you change the background color to black and text to white like you can on the Kindle. But here is a workaround. Go to Settings >General >Accessibility >Triple Click Home. Set this to "Toggle white on black." Now, when you click the home button three times quickly, all the color values of whatever app you're in will be reversed. This lets you read iBooks in white on black.

You can change the fonts, text size and formatting, word wrap, alignment, line spacing and anything else to do with how the document looks by tapping the format icon at the top of the screen. More options appear in the Text Options menu at the bottom of the formatting tab. Pictures can be changed too using the picture tab (next to the format key) within Pages.
