Apple’s wildly popular iPad and new iPad Mini come jam-packed with features, like access to your media library from the Web, Siri voice control, and seamless Facebook and Twitter integration. But to tap your iPad’s potential, you need a trustworthy owner’s manual. This bestelling book shows you how to import, create, and play back media; sync and shop wirelessly; keep in touch over the Internet; and even take care of business.
The important stuff you need to know:
