iPad Instruction Manuals:

The official instruction manuals from Apple for each iPad are linked in PDF format below. The iPad itself can view PDFs without difficulty, and a PDF program likely is already installed on any other computer or device you may use to view this site, but if not, you will need to download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.

The model number is a specific identifier listed on the back toward the bottom of each iPad in tiny print. If your iPad will boot, you also easily can identify it by launching the "Settings" app and then selecting General > About > and scrolling to Model. This "Model," which also is referred to as an "Order Number" should look like MD328LL/A. Type this number into EveryiPad.com's Ultimate iLookup for an exact match.

For additional methods to identify a specific model, please refer to iPad Identification.

If the manual does not provide the info you need, be sure to read EveryiPad.com's answers to frequently asked questions and search iPad forums, as well.




iPad Forums:

From time-to-time even the most detailed answers and the instruction manual do not address a specific iPad issue. Other times, it is ideal to get a variety of feedback from those with hands on experience regarding a particular product or accessory. In these instances, unofficial iPad forums should be able to help.

A selection of active iPad communities include:

Apple (Official) iLounge Forums Everything iCafe iMore Forums
ModMyi Forums iPadForums Whirlpool Forums MacTalk iPad

To improve the likelihood that the iPad community will be accepting, be sure to:

  1. Search a particular forum -- as well as other forums -- prior to posting a message. Many questions may have been addressed previously, and you don't want to look foolish or lazy.
  2. When you post your message, include links to relevant information about your inquiry from the forum itself and elsewhere around the web (like EveryiPad.com), so the existing community will know that you have made an effort to address the problem or obtain feedback independently before posting.

Those who follow these simple rules are likely to be welcomed members of the community. It's always a good idea to review the specific forum rules before posting, too.
