How to use multitasking gesture navigation

Multitasking gestures are quick, multitouch shortcuts for navigating around your iPad. You can enable or disable them in Settings (to avoid, for example, swiping in Fruit Ninja and suddenly ending up in Mail). When they're on, however, and you're used to using them, you can really fly between your iPad apps.

How to use the iPad Home button to navigate, access the fast app switcher, take a screenshot, and more

There's only one physical hardware button on the front of the new iPad so it's little wonder Apple has put it to work with several levels of functionality. While all the basic things are covered by the good old single click, there's a lot more, and a lot more advanced functionality hidden beneath that Home button using double and triple clicks and more.

Apple debunks iPad overcharging, explains how charging works

Apple Vice President of iPad Marketing, Michael Tchao, has set the record straight on allegations that the new iPad either fails to report the proper charge level, or over-charges and risks damage if left charging for too long. Speaking with AllThingsD, Tchao explained:

iPad 3 review

The new iPad is just that. Not iPad 3. Not iPad HD. Certainly not iPad 2S. It's the 3rd generation tablet from Apple, released March 16, 2012, and the simplicity and focus of the name tells you almost everything you need to know about the product.

The iPad. Better than any iPad -- any tablet -- that's come before. That's not to say there aren't compromises or criticisms, because there are plenty of both. But everything about the new iPad confirms once again how Apple envisions the future of personal computing, and how they'll continuously, relentlessly drive themselves, the industry, and the world around them towards that future by sheer force of will, audacity of engineering, and discipline of design.

Whether that future, and this iPad, is for everyone remains the question. The greater your focus, the more you exclude from your field of vision. Did Apple manage to strike the right balance?

The new iPad (2012) round-table

The new iPad is inarguably the best tablet for most people, most of the time. But that doesn't mean it's the best tablet for everyone, or the best tablet for doing everything. One of the huge advantages of being part of a massive mobile network is that iMore can draw not only on our own staff of writers and editors, but on the very deep bench that makes up Mobile Nations, its sites and shows.

So here's what the BlackBerry addict thinks of the new iPad, and the app designer and developer, and the webOS stalwart, the financial whiz, the cell phone junkie, and more.

New iPad power indicator reportedly two hours too fast

According to some recent reports, the new iPad battery level indicator seems to shows a full tank two hours and ten minutes before it's actually charged to full capacity. This news means, contrary to appearances, it really takes about 9 hours to get a full charge from scratch. The tests were run by DisplayMate, the fine folks that analyzed the display on the new iPad.

Only 6% of iPad sessions on cell networks, even LTE iPads spend most time on Wi-Fi

Localytics has recently compiled some of their data through apps, and has concluded that only 6% of iPad sessions are made through a cellular network of some kind. They've also figured out that 89.7% of iPads out there are Wi-Fi-only, while 1.5% are the LTE-enabled new iPads. Even among new iPads, only 36% of the sessions are using 4G LTE.  It's worth noting that the new iPad just went on sale in a lot of countries today, though other studies show that the U.S. takes up the lion's share of app activity.
