    Good morning. I am new here. Name is John. I live in the NW panhandle of Florida. Retired completely in 2008 after 43 years working for Uncle Sam. 20 years military and 23 years civil service for the Air Force. I am a Vietnam Vet. Yeah , I'm old!!!!! New to I pads. Bought a Mini 2 with Retina display for me and best half as they were on sale. I am learning and """TRYING"" to teach my wife how to use it. she likes it, but says it's very different from windows and android based items. I am a Ham Radio operator. Been a ham since 1985.

    Hi John - welcome to the forum! :) There are many retired 'oldsters' here, including myself, so not to worry - I'm sure that you're not the oldest one - ;) But if not already done, take a look at the free Apple Manuals for the iPad HERE - can be downloaded as a PDF file to your iDevice - pick the right one for your iOS (I usually read these in iBooks or in GoodReader).

    Thanks. I have already downloaded the guide for ISO 9 and have read most of it. Understanding it is next. I am sure over time I'll get it done. ;)

    Do you mean something like anti-virus protection or do you mean a password protection app?
    iPads don't need anti-virus protection as there are no known viruses in the wild that can infect your iPad.

    I could be wrong, but I serious doubt that was a stock iPad from Apple meant for general consumer use. Apple doesn't do that sort of thing.
