iPad Configuration and Tips
Setting up iCloud on your iPad
- First, go to the Settings > iCloud screen on your iOS device. By default, Apple will begin with the email address for the Apple ID you use to make purchases via the iTunes Store on your device entered into the sign-up field.
- Once verified, iCloud will automatically turn syncing on for most services, and ask your permission to either merge or replace data on your device, as well as use your location for Find My iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
- You can selectively set which data does and doesn’t sync via iCloud once you have it set up on your device. Your options include Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, Bookmarks, Notes, Photo Stream, Documents & Data and Photo Stream.
- Apple’s iCloud works together with some official apps from Apple, too. To complete your iCloud experience, go ahead and download Find My iPhone and Find My Friends from the App Store. These will help you locate your own device should you lose it, locate friends and family on a map if they choose to share their location with you, and vice versa.
Setting up Find My iPad
- Under General Settings look for the iCloud icon.
- Next to Find my iPhone (works for iPhone, iPad, iPod) On the right, move the switch to ON.
- To complete the set up go to your computer. (You may also do this on a mobile device as well).
- In your web browser; type in the following URL: https://www.icloud.com/
Once complete, you will be able to locate your iPad when it is on the web.
Select Find My iPhone icon and enter your Apple ID and Password.
Your device will be displayed on a map.
Note: The device must be on and on the Internet to be displayed on a map.
Using Find My iPad
- Go to the iCloud website https://www.icloud.com/ and log into your iCloud account.
- The next screen will show you all your iOS devices. Those that are discoverable have a small green dot next to the name of the device.
- Click on the device you wish to locate – in our case, it is your iPad – the map will show the location of your iPad and when it was last located.
- Touch the “I” icon next to the name of your iPad and you will have three options listed:
1.1 Play sound or message
1.2 Remote lock
1.3 Remote Wipe
What if you know or think your iPad was stolen? This is where the Remote Lock and Remote Wipe feature comes in. You may not get your iPad back, but you can take steps to make sure that your information is not stolen along with your iPad.
