You are probably pretty familiar with your device, and even if you aren’t, Apple’s operating system is probably pretty easy for those of you who are tech savvy to navigate. But not everything is so cut and dry when it comes to tweaking the way your settings should be. I’m here to let you in on a few tricks when it comes to operating your device.

First, disable your phone calls. A small number of users might find this handy if they have their iPad paired with an iPhone and their cellular device is in another room, but for the most part this setting should be turned off. If you’re watching a video, playing a game, or are just really into what you’re working on on your iPad, your activity can and will be disrupted by a phone call. Which is why this particular setting may be better off disabled. After all, that’s why you have an iPad in the first place, NOT to talk on it. Luckily, it’s pretty simple to turn this setting off. Just go to Settings>FaceTime and tap the toggle switch to turn off “Calls from iPhone.”

Second and perhaps most important, enabling find my iPad. Your iPad is precious to you, but sometimes you might put it down and forget where you left it, or even the inconceivable could happen: it could get stolen. This setting is easy to enable, just go to Settings>iCloud, then scroll down to Find My iPad. You may also want to enable “Send Last Location,” that way if your iPad dies and is lost, you can get its last known location before it was powered down.

So you’ve enabled Find My iPad and now your iPad has gone missing, how do you find it? Easy, if you have an iPhone, you can use the “Find My iPhone” application. If you don’t have an iPhone, just sign in to your iCloud.com account and then access Find My iPhone from there.

This next tip has to do with the iPad’s Touch ID, the fingerprint sensor that makes for fast and easy lock-screen security. But, if you just use your thumb, or perhaps pointer finger, you can’t always get into your iPad as quickly as you might want. That’s why we recommend that you add more fingers to Touch ID. You can actually log up to five fingers. All you have to do is tap Settings>Touch ID & Passcode, then enter your numeric passcode. Now tap Add a Fingerprint and follow the prompts as many times as you would like (up to 5).

For some reason or other Apple’s default setting for the battery gauge doesn’t include numbers, meaning there is no percentage displayed to show you how long your battery will last. Perhaps it’s so it looks like your iPad’s charge lasts longer than it truly does, but who really knows. Fortunately, you can add a numeric gauge and know exactly when your iPad will die. Fix this by going to Settings>Battery then turn on Battery Percentage.

Company events are widely considered one of the best ways to grow your brand and provide useful information to attendees directly. When a business is hosting an event or training course, the typical run-of-the-mill presentations and paper evaluations can get very dull very quickly. What can you do to fix that problem? Well thankfully, for all of us, we have technology. Take the iPad for example. The tablet that made tablets practical, essentially. So how are you going to use this tablet technology to further your brand and help with attendee engagement? Just know that whether it be on the event floor or during the presentation, an iPad can really help bolster your event.

Think about how much paper you may use during the entirety of your event. The copier would be on overload. Instead, why not go a bit greener by using an iPad to take care of things such as speaker and presentation evaluations. Paper signups and registration can get a bit hectic at times as well, depending on the type of event you may be hosting. By putting these types of forms directly onto the iPad your company has provided, you can save paper and keep everything much more organized in the long run.

When your company hosts an event, you want to be as engaged with your attendees as possible. Communication is key in these types of situations. Everyone in the event industry can tell you about live tweeting during a presentation, and that’s just one of the ways an iPad can help. Hashtags aren’t just limited to Twitter anymore. We are now able to use hashtags on all major social media formats, thus making for a much more accessible conversation outlet. Whether it be a forum for attendees to talk about the event on, or if you’re using a hashtag to compose a poll or live tweeting question and answer session, the iPad can help you greatly.

Most attendees will respond to something more visual rather than something they have to read. A picture is worth a thousand words after all. Your attendees will be able to talk to loved ones back home with Skype coming standard on almost all iPads now. With incredible camera quality and processing power, the iPad will be able to display crystal clear pictures and the cameras do their jobs very well. Not only will the attendees’ video chats go well (depending on the internet strength), but they will also be able to take gorgeous pictures that can more easily be posted directly to social media and other sites. Anyone who may be a bit more into photography than others will be able to transfer their pictures taken on a phone, and send them directly to the iPad.

The use of an iPad during the presentation can be beneficial to attendees as well. We all know that nosebleed seats can make it hard for us to see. By having the iPad out during the presentation, you’re able to have the slide show play directly on the iPad through a master iPad controlling it. This way, those sitting in the back won’t have to strain their eyes, nor will they have to try to follow along as it will already be done for them. Think of this as well. Many more attendees will respond to an interactive presentation rather than watch another guy fiddle around with the same hand motion for 2 hours while he speaks.

When you bring the iPad into the play during the speakers presentation, he may become more engaged with the audience and vice versa. Attendees will be more interested especially if the presentation is being played through their respective iPads as well.

There is a multitude of different ways to help make your brand and/or company grow. One of the best and easiest ways to make that happen is at an event. With iPads, or any tablet for that matter, at your next event helping to make it a success, you can be sure that your brand and your audience will grow. Try utilizing iPads at your next business event and see the difference for yourself!

Technology is expensive, is it not? I know for a fact that I can’t go out and buy a brand new iPad whenever I want to. The more advanced technology gets, the more expensive it seems to get as well. Owning new devices can cost so much these days. Mind you that this isn’t just for personal use either. If you need a lot of iPads for an occasion, you could be looking at quite the price tag depending on the number that you need. Purchasing many devices at one time could definitely break the business budget. This why there are rentals for tech devices like this. That’s right! You can rent iPads for any occasion should you want to!

  • Any type of tech convention
  • Certain classrooms or small-time learning classes
  • Business meetings

These are just a few of the many options where a tech rental for iPads could really come in handy.

Tech Conventions

LQLaptop

When you go to a convention that caters a lot to technology, you are going to see a lot of devices. One of the main devices you’ll see is the tablet. By now, I’m sure that we are all aware of ever growing tablet trend. Apple has done extremely well for themselves with the iPad. It’s the tablet that is still on top of the world. If you see someone on top of any type of competition, whether it’s sports, business or tech, they’re at the top for a reason. If you are  a vendor going to a tech convention, why not rent your iPads to show off whatever service you’re promoting? It will help you engage more customers at the same time and possibly help make more sales.

Tech In The Classroom

We all dealt with the no CD players, cell phones, GameBoys, rules growing up in school, but times are changing. Technology is becoming more and more apparent, even in the classrooms. Ever heard of a SmartBoard? Since technology is becoming so dominant now, it shouldn’t be out of the question to embrace it with open arms and implement the use of iPads in the classroom. Whether it be in a training class or a school classroom, iPads could easily help make the learning experience more interactive, fun, and immersive.

Your Business Meeting

The office building is where technology thrives. Computers. Printers. Laptops. Copiers. Projectors. They all have their respective homes in the office. When you get called to a meeting, you may not have those items with you to help you learn and become hands-on with the topic at hand. By renting iPads and using them in the business meeting, you could make the meeting much more efficient. You’ve given everyone in the meeting a new rented iPad, so now they can stay on task, keep up with the boss and his speed on the topic, and feel just as important as the boss himself. Who knows! It may even spark some ideas within the meeting to help increase business and workflow if everyone is using an iPad.

The iPad is the most sold and used tablet around the world. There’s clearly a reason for Apple’s success with the iPad. Why not help make your next convention, training class, or business meeting a bit more fun and efficient without the added worry of buying all of the tablets you need?

Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, announced that Office for iPad is will be available for tablet users. Microsoft plans to introduce Office apps for tablet computers running Google’s Android system as well. Critics state that Microsoft has waited far too long to introduce Office to iPad tablets, which nearly 200 million have already been sold.

The iPad apps for Microsoft Powerpoint, Excel and Word are all free in the app store. From these apps, you’ll be able to read and present your information. The launch of these new apps lets you create and edit your documents, calculate spreadsheets and also design professional presentations.

Mobile office apps have already been launched for the iPhone and Android smartphones, so of course Microsoft and Apple would target tablets next.

Nadella stated that Office on iPad is “a beautiful set of applications; the company is taking great care to make sure that Office on every device shines through.”

A personal subscription to Microsoft Office for your computer and tablet is due this spring for $69.99 a year. Microsoft has said that the Office iPad apps would be free to users who want to use them in “read-only” mode, but to be able to create work on the app users will have to pay an annual subscription fee to get Office 365.

Microsoft SurfaceMicrosoft recently announced that it has relaxed a Windows 8 certification requirement, allowing devices with lower resolutions. According to analysts, this move signals that Microsoft could be the next company in the industry to make the shift to smaller, less expensive tablets.

According to IDC Analyst Bob O’Donnell, “The sub-eight-inch part of the tablet market will be growing this year to about 55% of the entire market. Microsoft hasn’t even been playing in that segment, and they needed to do something.” Microsoft laid out all the details of the new relaxed rule in a newsletter released March 12 by its certification program. The program oversees use of the Windows logos that OEMs display on their hardware.

Microsoft made it clear in the newsletter that even though it will allow lower-resolution devices, it would still prefer that original equipment manufacturers continue to work with higher resolution screens. Microsoft also detailed that the exact specifications of the new resolution are 1,024 x 768 pixels.

According to the newsletter, “This doesn’t imply that we’re encouraging partners to regularly use a lower screen resolution. In fact, we see customers embracing the higher-resolution screens that make a great Windows experience. We understand that partners exploring designs for certain markets could find greater design flexibility helpful.”

The previous stipulations of the Windows 8 certification, which also applied to Windows RT, required screens with a minimum 1,366 x 768 resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. This lower resolution rule would allow for tablets running Windows 8 and RT to be smaller in size, comparable to Apple’s new iPad Mini.

This move by Windows is obviously an attempt to stay competitive with the two other big names in the tablet industry, Apple and Samsung. Smaller Windows 8 tablets would be able to compete against Apple’s iPad Mini and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.

If you want to try out the Microsoft Surface running Windows 8 or the other tablets mentioned in this article, like the iPad Mini or the Galaxy Note 8, then RentOurTablets.com is where you need to look! RentOurTablets.com has a wide selection of products, meaning you can rent an Android tablet or rent an iPad whenever and wherever you need it!

Microsoft SurfaceTablet PCs are very cool pieces of technology but a lot of people don’t really need one on a long term basis. Many people get them simply because they are trendy or they don’t need all the features that come with a laptop, but these devices do have a lot of productive uses and are perfect for college students or businessmen who are always on the road.

One thing that tablet PCs allow you to do is take them everywhere, including a classroom, business meeting or trade show. You can buy digital copies of books from online retailers and read them directly on your tablet or download different business apps that allow you to fully connect during a meeting or presentation.

However, even though tablet PCs are extremely convenient and cheaper than buying a fully-featured laptop, they are not always cheap. Sometimes tablet PCs can sell for as high as $600, which is a lot to throw down if you ask me. That is where RentOurTablets.com comes in with its full line of tablet PC rentals.

RentOurTablets.com allows you to rent a tablet PC for a period of time, like a school semester perhaps, so you can have all the conveniences of a tablet PC without the cost of buying one. In many cases, renting a tablet is far less expensive than buying one, especially if you are a student where money is always tight or you don’t have a long-term need for one.

RentOurTablets.com has many regular tablets in stock, like Apple’s iPad, and even some convertible tablets (devices that convert from a laptop to a tablet) like the Inspiron Duo Convertible Tablet from Dell. You can even rent Microsoft’s new Surface Tablet, which comes complete with Windows RT.

Tablets can be expensive and unless you are planning on using yours all the time, it doesn’t make sense to jump in and spend a lot of money on one. If you need one for a school semester to save on books or for a business meeting that you are taking out of town, then renting a tablet is your best bet and RentOurTablets.com can get you whatever you need.
