    Hi all I am new to this site and was hoping for some help from fellow iPad users. I have been on the new iPad for 6 minutes now and my battery is at 92%. I have turned off all push notifications and was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions for saving my battery life. Are there ane specific settings that I should change so the my battery lasts longer?!! Thanks for listening hope to hear from y'all soon!

    Yes, turn down the brightness and turn auto brightness on.
    Also make sure you discharge it fully once a month and then fully charge it right away. Never leave things with batteries fully discharged for more than a day - that will kill the battery.
