Ever since it was founded in 1996, EveryMac.com has answered Mac questions sent in by readers. Likewise, EveryiPad.com's iPad Q&A and iPad Troubleshooting & Repair Q&A answer iPad-related questions with the same precise attention to detail.
The five most frequently asked iPad questions in each category follow:
Performance & Features
Troubleshooting & Repair
If your question is not answered above, be sure to see EveryiPad.com's complete iPad Q&A and iPad Troubleshooting & Repair Q&A as well as the official iPad manuals. If none of those answer your question, try unofficial forums for community support.
The official instruction manuals from Apple for each iPad are linked in PDF format below. The iPad itself can view PDFs without difficulty, and a PDF program likely is already installed on any other computer or device you may use to view this site, but if not, you will need to download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
The model number is a specific identifier listed on the back toward the bottom of each iPad in tiny print. If your iPad will boot, you also easily can identify it by launching the "Settings" app and then selecting General > About > and scrolling to Model. This "Model," which also is referred to as an "Order Number" should look like MD328LL/A. Type this number into EveryiPad.com's Ultimate iLookup for an exact match.
For additional methods to identify a specific model, please refer to iPad Identification.
From time-to-time even the most detailed answers and the instruction manual do not address a specific iPad issue. Other times, it is ideal to get a variety of feedback from those with hands on experience regarding a particular product or accessory. In these instances, unofficial iPad forums should be able to help.
