Split the iPad Keyboard to Thumb TypeNormally, the iPad keyboard fills the entire bottom of the screen. But it doesn't have to. If you press two fingers on the G and H keys and slide your fingers apart, the keyboard will split in two.
Hold the iPad with two hands in portrait mode, and the split keyboard is ideal for typing with your thumbs.
When you're ready to back to the regular keyboard, just reverse the process. Press two fingers on the G and H keys and pinch them together.
Enter a Number with One MotionEntering a number with the iPad keyboard requires switching to the number and symbol keyboard. So typing a 5 (or any other number) requires three key presses. First the Number and Symbol key, then the 5 key, then the Letter key. The iPad lets you bypass all that pressing and perform the same three actions with a single motion.
Instead of pressing the Number and Symbol key and then pressing a number key, press the Number and Symbol key and slide your finger to your desired number. When you lift up your finger, the iPad will enter the number and automatically switch back to the letter keyboard.
Search Your Email with SiriAnyone who has used Siri on an iPad or iPhone knows that it will search the Internet. But did you know that it will also search your email?
The process is simple. Press and hold the home button to access Siri, and then say "search emails for" and your search terms. Siri will bring up a list of all the emails on your device that contain your search terms. If you’d like to see a video of how to search for email using Siri, here is a good one from iOS Advice:
