So, congratulations! Perhaps you’re the owner of a new iPad this holiday season. If so, you’ve come to the right place. Apple’s tablet is incredibly easy to use, but there are still plenty of ways to set up and optimize your iPad to take advantage of everything it has to offer. Some of these suggestions may be obvious; others might not. Regardless, here’s what I do when I take a new iPad out of its crisp white box. I think you should do the same. At the least, these tips should help you get on your feet. By the way, none of this involves ever connecting to a PC or Mac to sync. In fact, I’m going to encourage you to live as sync-free as possible to save a little sanity and have a little more fun. Restore your old backup, and get to know iCloud. If this is your first iPad, you have nothing to restore.
