(Very) New to all this.....

    Hello, have had my iPad for two hours now and am pretty pleased I've got this far.
    I expect I'll have plenty of questions, but to start off, how can I teach the iPad my name? It keeps correcting me which is a bit annoying after a lifetime of spelling it out carefully for everyone else!
    Thank you in anticipation

    Welcome to the forum.

    Try entering your name in the Contacts app. That should fix it.

    Me, I just turn the auto-correct off under Settings > General > Keyboard. I prefer to make my own mistakes. ;)

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad
