Hardware Tips

How to charge an iPad

Connect iPad to a power outlet using the included Dock Connector to USB Cable and 10W USB power adapter. When you connect iPad to a USB 2.0 port on a Mac with the Dock Connector to USB Cable, iPad may charge slowly while syncing.

Bring up the virtual keyboard while the BlueTooth One is still connected

As a rule the virtual keyboard will not appear while a Bluetooth keyboard is connected to the iPad. If you need the virtual keyboard, just hit the eject key on the Apple's physical keyboard.

Take charge

The best time to charge is at night or while you're sleeping. It takes the iPad a good four to five hours for a full charge from empty.

Use an Apple keyboard
  • Apple Wireless or Bluetooth Keyboard will work with the iPad
