    Reader in Safari makes articles easier to read. When you see the Reader button in the search field, tap it to see just the text and photos — without ads.

  3. Talk instead of type

    Tap the Microphone button on the keyboard and speak your words (including punctuation). When you’re finished, tap anywhere in the gray area.

  4. Magnify the fine print

    Go to Settings > General > Accessibility and turn on Magnifier. Then triple-click the Home button to use the camera to zoom in on small details. Tap the Filter icon to enhance the image. Tap the shutter to freeze it.

  5. Sleep like clockwork with Bedtime

    Set a regular time for going to bed and waking up. See how long you’re leaving for sleep, get a reminder when it’s time for bed, and wake to pleasant sounds.

  6. Type accented characters

    Touch and hold a character to see alternatives. Slide to pick the one you want.

  7. Get the user guide

    Learn everything you want to know about iPad — all in one place. The iPad User Guide is a free download in the iBooks Store.
