A common question we hear from readers with iPads is ” iPad manual ?” There is no manual that comes with iPads. Apple assumes that their product is so easy to use that no manual is necessary. They figured that no one would read it anyways.
There is, however, a small card that tells you where the On/Off/Sleep/Wake button is. And the back of the card tells you how to sync your iPad.
But if you are one of those who like to read manuals
- Go to Apple.com website
- Click on “Support” on the top menu
- Choose “iPad” on the left menu
- Click “Manuals”
- Now you can select the manual that you are interested in
Here’s the general link to iPad Manuals
iPad Manual: View With Safari
If you like, you can read any iPad User Guide on your iPad by using Safari and navigating to the web address. There should be a shortcut to it in Safari’s bookmarks. The iPad online User Guide works like Help system on Macs, with a Table of Contents (TOC) and a search button so you find exactly what you want.
Take a Peek with iBooks
Another option is to use your iBooks app, download the manual(s) to iBooks and read these free ebooks from there. To locate the guide for your iPad and your iOS version, open iBooks Store and type in iPad User Guide into the search bar.
And if you want to download it, a single tap on the PDF manual brings up a “Save to iBooks” button in the upper-right corner. Once downloaded, it’s available to read and use, even when you are not connected to the internet!
