Am wondering how to use the Bluetooth feature.....
Probably one of the most uses for Bluetooth is a keyboard (I'm typing on one now). That will allow you to bypass the on-screen keyboard and is great if you want to use the iPad for serious typing. The on-screen keyboard is fine for entering a small amount of text but, for most people, it's too tedious for lengthy documents. In addition, of course, if you're a touch typist then the on-screen keyboard is difficult because it doesn't provide any tactile feedback.
If you're going to get a Bluetooth keyboard there are several on the market. My own preference if for a folding keyboard because it's easy to carry around with the iPad.
Other uses for Bluetooth on the iPad are for wireless headsets or speakers. Be careful, though, as some Bluetooth 'earpieces' (the sort used by mobile 'phones) are not compatible, but most 'serious' headsets work fine.
You can access the iPad's Bluetooth settings from the iPad's Home screen, then 'Settings', 'General', 'Bluetooth'. There are detailed instructions on how to set up the iPad for Bluetooth devices in the iPad manual, which you can get access to from the iPad's Safari web browser (it's pre-loaded as a Bookmark).
Many thanks. I thought the kids could use it for playing games
Do you mean by linking two iPads together via Bluetooth to play multi-player games? Or do you want to link the iPad to another Bluetooth device? The iPad doesn't support all Bluetooth devices - for example Bluetooth printers are not supported. It's possible other Forum members may know something about playing games on the iPad using Bluetooth - I'm not a computer games sort of guy.....sorry.....
Thanks. I was thinking of. The kids using it like their ds player and using 2 iPads to play each other'
I think some games can...
