- In the “settings” folder there is an option to turn down the screen brightness. Keeping it down a little won’t ruin your experience and will help prolong life.
- Turn off 3G and WiFi services when they aren’t needed. You’ll only need them when connecting to networks or downloading/browsing data, so turn them off when you can.
- Make sure apps aren’t running in the background when they don’t have to. Turning apps off from the multitasking tray can save you some juice.
- Run the battery out every few weeks. Giving the iPad a full charge will ensure it remains in good condition.
