Nowadays, the most common thing for the university is to bring a computer or an electronic device, such as an iPad. There is controversy about which is better for a college student, and it depends on several factors, but both devices are good choices. In this post we tell you how you can get the most out of your iPad if you are a university student.
One of the benefits of bringing an iPad to college is that it is much lighter and easier to handle than a computer. In addition to this, another advantage is that you can note with a keyboard, as if it were a computer, or by hand with an Apple Pencil or a similar pencil.
Tricks to get the most out of the iPad
So that you can get the most out of your iPad while you study at the university, we are going to leave you with some very useful and practical tricks. With these options you can save time when studying or taking notes with your iPad.
- Activate Split View: the first trick and one of the most important is to activate this function that allows you to work with two apps at the same time: Split View. To do this, when you are using an app, you will only have to remove the dock by sliding your finger from the bottom up. Then, hold down the icon of the app you want to have at the same time, and drag it to the center of the screen.
- Read text function: another trick that you should take into account is to use the function through which your iPad reads the selected text that you choose. To turn on Speak Selection, you need to do the following: Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Speech. Once there you will activate this function and you will also be able to adjust, among other things, the reading speed.
- Split keyboard: another option that can help you when studying, especially on your iPad, is to have the split keyboard, a comfortable and personalized option. To take advantage of it, you have to activate it. To do this, you need to go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Split Keyboard again. From there you can activate the option and deactivate it, once you no longer need it.
- Dictation option: one of the things that you can’t miss when you start studying trying to take advantage of all the functions of your iPad is the dictation option. At times it can be very helpful to have to dictate instead of writing. To do this, make sure Enable Dictation is set. To do this, you have to go to Settings> General> Keyboard> Activate dictation , and once there put it on “on”. Once activated, to do so, you just have to press the microphone on the iPad keyboard. Once you have it pressed, you can start speaking to dictate.
These are just a few tricks so you can get the most out of your device during college classes. In addition to this, there are a large number of applications and utilities that you can take advantage of so that your iPad becomes an ideal element for your university studies.
