Introduction

A

s Yogi Berra would say, “It was déjà vu all over again”:
Front-page treatment, top billing on network TV and
cable, and diehards lining up days in advance to ensure landing a highly lusted-after product from Apple. Only this time
around, the product generating the remarkable buzz wasn’t
the iPhone or even the latest Mac computer. It was the fourthgeneration iPad and iPad mini. We trust you didn’t pick up
this book to read yet another account about how the latest
iPad launch was an epochal event. We trust you did buy the
book to find out how to get the very most out of your remarkable device, and that goes for any model of the iPad you may
have newly acquired. Our goal is to deliver that information
in a light and breezy fashion. We expect you to have fun using
your iPad. We equally hope that you have fun spending time
with us.

About This Book
We think you’re pretty darn smart for buying a For Dummies
book. That says to us that you have the confidence and intelligence to know what you don’t know. The For Dummies franchise is built around the notion that everyone feels insecure
about certain topics when tackling them for the first time,
especially technical topics.
As with most Apple products, iPads are beautifully designed
and intuitive to use. And though our editors may not want us
to reveal this dirty little secret (especially on the first page),
the truth is you’ll get pretty far just by exploring the iPad’s
many functions and features on your own, without the help of
this (or any other) book.
Now that we spilled the beans, please don’t run back to the
bookstore and request a refund. Why? This book is chock-full
of useful tips, advice, and other nuggets that should make
your iPad experience all the more pleasurable. We’d even
go so far as to say you won’t find some of these nuggets anywhere else. So keep this book nearby and consult it often.
