How to set up a new iPad




If you have just bought them either given the new iPadNo matter the model in question, the steps to follow in its implementation are always very similar and simple. We tell you how to proceed.

Although Apple products are generally easy to set up, a little lead is never painful. In addition, we help you in the first important decisions and recommendations to get the most out of your new tablet.

Unboxing and unlocking the iPad

Apple is very attentive to the experience you may have with product launches and early signings. The company is an expert in making it easy, so most iPads are shipped with 90% charged battery.

Charge the iPad (if necessary)

However, if after pressing the stop / use button you see that its screen does not turn on, try temporarily connecting it to the power outlet using the adapter that puts Apple in the product box.

Insert a SIM card

If you happen to have purchased an iPad model with wifi + 4G, you may need to install a nano-SIM card right now before continuing with setup. This way, everything will be easier.

Open the SIM card for the iPad with the help of a debit card tool provided by Apple, or with the help of a small clip. Insert the tool into the hole until the hole comes in and out. Cut it with your fingers.

Insert the card into the correct position and put it back inside the iPad to fit perfectly. Do not force the system. If the hat does not go, you insert it improperly. Try rotating it to 180 degrees.

Start and you're welcome

Slide your finger around the screen to start. The first thing you need to do is join a wireless Wi-Fi network so the iPad can connect to Apple's servers, request and send configuration information.

Select the desired network and enter the password. Click & # 39; Join & # 39 ;. If you don't have access to a Wi-Fi network, you can continue to use 3G / 4G data connection if your iPad supports it.

In any case, our recommendation is to use a Wi-Fi network because, presumably, the configuration will be done very quickly. If your iPad needs to download certain applications, it can consume a huge amount of data.

Placement and location services

Time to allow or access local resources. This is a complete set of functions used by GPS and wifi / triangle. mobile phone to see your location.

Although not important, many apps like Maps won't work properly unless they are enabled.

Don't miss out and to review made on the new 11-inch Pro (2018) and an explanatory video of its top stories.

Create an access or identification code

The iPad will ask you to enter a four- or six-digit access code. This is used to get into the iPad as an additional measure of security and user ID.

By default, the iPad will suggest a six-digit access code when you configure it as a new device, something you can change from the & # 39; accessibility code & # 39; You can change the alphanumeric code or choose & # 39; not add an access code & # 39 ;.

We recommend that you configure an access code of some sort. It provides basic protections to protect your information and personal data and prevent identity theft. It can also interfere with the use of metal by thieves or by intruders.

The access code does not provide maximum security, but it does help. After all, most of the time you will unlock your new iPad using a touch ID fingerprint scanner or face ID scanner, depending on the iPad model.

After setting the access code, the next step will be to stop the sensitive identification. Select one finger (index or thumb) and then press the start button as told by the screen. You can always add more fingers later.

If you are lucky enough to have one of the new iPads of 2018, you will be asked to set a face ID using a quick and easy process. Naturally stand in front of the front camera of your iPad to continue registration.

New or replacement model?
