    Giving ipad to daughter

    You did not mention the age of your daughter - is she an adult? Then she can just set up her own iTunes/Apple Account. If she is younger living with you, you could simply just share the Apple ID used for iTunes purchases. I do this for my wife and 3 kids in the house. I purchase a game or...

    Cracked Glass

    Looking on amazon, I see repair kits for around $30. iFixIt is a great site to see how to tear it apart. iPad Repair - iFixit I have pulled apart my 1st gen ipad. It's not as hard as it looks.

    Just ordered a Devicewear Vegan Leather Magnetic Case for iPad Mini with Six Position

    The cover has magnets in the top and bottom corners. This holds the cover closed in book mode as well as enables/disables sleep mode when the cover is opened and closed.

    iPad Mini Won't Show Battery Usage

    You might have to let it sit for a few minutes after the charge pushes the iPad to 100%, I have noticed as well.

    What new features would make you upgrade to Mini 2?

    Faster CPU, and higher PPI screen. However if these upgrades involve a larger battery (heavier and thicker) and more heat from the faster CPU, I'm not entirely sure I would want it. I am curious if iOS 7 will drag down the performance of the Mini as iOS 5 did for the original iPad. I will...

    WiFi or cellular Mini? What did you purchase...?

    Quite understandable, that's why my first 2 iPads bought back in 2010 were only 16gb. I purchased Refurbished ($389 for 32GB) as I figure I could save some cash that way, and have had very good luck with previous refurb purchases.

    Moving saved games to mini

    Shouldn't iCloud do app data backups if the game developer at least thought of including it?

    Just ordered a Devicewear Vegan Leather Magnetic Case for iPad Mini with Six Position

    I decided I wanted something a little more professional looking than a multicolor silicone case, so went with this one based upon the many 5 star reviews, and especially the product review video as it also has a built in stand. I can use with a blue-tooth keyboard down the line if I want, and...

    WiFi or cellular Mini? What did you purchase...?

    I noticed the 16gb sold out fast, in just a few hours. I was getting impatient and I know it will take a week or 2 to ship over form the slow boat. 13.xx usable gb is not enough any more. Had to up to the next size.

    WiFi or cellular Mini? What did you purchase...?

    I ended up ordering a 32GB WiFi model from the refurb store, as they finally showed up again, and I got tired of waiting. I would have prefered black, so may eventually just give this one to the wife down the line. Refurbished iPad mini Wi-Fi - Buy A Refurbished Apple iPad - Apple Store (U.S.)

    Is there a cydia app to spoof an ipad 1 as an ipad 2 for hardware?

    My kids are bugging me for roblox on the iPad but won't run as requires a ipad 2 at minimum. I figure its a ram limitation, but already jail broken so wanted to see if it would crash or not. Getting iPad mini soon.

    How Long Do I Have?

    We have 2 1st generation iPads, and I'm glad it does not have iOS 6, as it would be pretty much unusable as the single core chip/256mb RAM just can't handle the iOS or some of the newer apps. It's now officially a 3yr old device, and my kids enjoy playing on them, it just does not multitask well.

    WiFi or cellular Mini? What did you purchase...?

    As indecisive that I am, I think I am going to simply get WiFi models. I don't need to use it as GPS I can already tether for free to my iPhone data plan I may only need to use the iPad out of the house 1-2 times a week at most I figure I will save $130 on the purchase price, as well as the...

    How to change broken screen of ipad2

    I'm just going by the story that the apple store gave to me. Buy a refurb or your on your own.

    How to change broken screen of ipad2

    Apple won't fix it. All they will do is offer to sell you a refurbished unit. If you don't want to open it yourself, you will have to find a 3rd party company to perform the work.

    WiFi or cellular Mini? What did you purchase...?

    Yes, I should clarify. Verizon does not allow voice/data at the same time. So if I only had a WiFi iPad, I could not tether it to my iPhone and talk on the phone at the same time. It would drop the internet. AT&T likes to rip on Verizon about this all the time.

    Pretty much decided it's worth it to me to have the cell model. I want to be able to make a phone call and use the internet for work, if needed.

    iPad 4 or iPad mini

    It really is a personal preference. I would suggest to go to an Apple store and play with both again, if you are within a return period of your Mini. With the iPad 4 you have a clearer screen, faster performance, but also it's physically larger and weighs about 2x the Mini. With the Mini, the...

    Share Actual iPad Mini Screen Using Apps with 30 Others

    I am thinking of a possible solution involving the Apple TV. You can AirPlay Mirror the iPad Mini screen to the Apple TV, which outputs to a HDMI input to a TV. There must be something that can take that signal for a web conference. This would be for presentation mode only however.

    Is there a case that would work well with a Logitech bluetooth keyboard cover?

    Some good points there. My kids essentially have taken over our 1st generation iPads, as well as their own 4th Gen iPod Touch collection, so this will be mine. Or so I think for now....

    Is there a case that would work well with a Logitech bluetooth keyboard cover?

    I do like the look of the skin, I just am concerned over light drop protection. My main intention for the Mini is to be able to some work when away from my office.

    Is there a case that would work well with a Logitech bluetooth keyboard cover?

    It fits similar to the Apple Smartcover when closed, so the case would need to be bare on that side that is magneticly attached to the cover.

    Which iPad Mini Keyboard to Buy? Most Portable

    The Logitech has some pretty good reviews so far. This would be my pick, if I could find a thin case of some sort to protect the back and still fit. Review: Logitech?s Ultrathin Keyboard for iPad mini is like a Smart Cover with a built-in keyboard | 9to5Mac

    How Long Do I Have?

    I have seen Apps get dropped from support due to the iOS version, and get put back as well due to complaints from numerous users in the App store. I believe 'Cut the Rope' pushed out an update that required iOS 6, and after a few days of constant complaints from iPad 1 users it got updated...

    Holding off buying iPad mini for mini 2

    The screen is the same resolution as the iPad 2, but looks clearer as the increase to the the PPI. 163 for the Mini vs 132 of the ipad 2. Honestly it did not look too bad next to a Retina iPad in the store to me.

    GPS and Glonass

    Personally I just use Waze as I really don't have the need for GPS navigation much, so not worried over the Data usage. If I traveled more I would likely make the plunge into the actual paid app and the 1-2gig of storage it likely requires for local Maps.

    How Long Do I Have?

    As an Owner of two 1st generation iPads, I would like to to agree, but I can't. You simply have to draw the line as a manufacturer on what you have to gimp your OS to be able to run correctly on older hardware. Security updates would be appreciated, but I don't expect it. These iPads still...

    Gmail: which app do you use?

    I am actually giving the App a try on my iPhone and iPad. I like that it uses the filtering of the tags that you have hidden so not every single one is viewable. I also like a dedicated trash button. This eliminates the current 3 step process in the Apple mail app.

    GPS and Glonass

    Apple can likely only speak to Apple Maps, which uses data. A Mini for navigation would be great in the car.

    Does ipad mini record the date and time on captured movies?

    On a Windows client, I can check properties and details and it gives me the data the file was created on my iPhone. I assume here that a Mac can give similar information. Personally I just rename files to include the date. 3.18.2013.Activity name here.mov or similar.
