OK, then you will be using the home button at bottom rather than swiping up. You also won't have facial ID, and possibly not fingerprint ID.

Do you need me to find other youtubes or are you good to go now that you have an idea what to search for similar ones for your Ipad 10.2. I think you can probably find good stuff for your specific Ipad now that you have a rough idea of what is out there in youtubeland.

Good luck. I love my iPad. Superior product and Apple has the best support, bu not during the Covid shutdown. Apple's support has been sub-par during Covid. It should bounce back to its superior product support if and when we get over Covid to herd immunity and open back up.

You are welcome. I know exactly how it feels to have a thousand dollar paperweight that 5 year olds seems to be able to use with ease. Tech comes very hard for me and I get by with a really small subset of the power available.

I hate the way tech caters to the power user at the expense of simplicity and ease of use. This stuff could be WAY easier to use if that was the focus by the companies. Instead, they offer one Operating System to fit all from novice to power user. I don't think that is right. They should offer an iPad for Idiots or something, and don't worry about all those astrophysics level features I don't have a prayer of ever seeing, let alone use.

I wanted to address this statement about the browser, since no one else commented on it. The iPad came with a browser named Safari. Safari is a very good browser and it has some features the others don't have, but you don't have to use it. You can download Chrome and/or Firefox from the App Store if you prefer to use those.

Thanks. I did see the App Store once but didn't know I could get Firefox there.

Try this Google link. Best apps for ipad.


https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...ipad+best+apps


One warning on iPad apps. Many of them have in-app purchases you need to be aware of. You may be referred to a great app or read a glowing review, but it could be the professional or full fledged version. Some of these app have one version, either free or low cost. Many apps will be free or have low cost, but that gets you only the basic framework and that version may come with strict limitations or be missing features. A list making app may only allow 25 items unless you buy the in-app subscription or one time fee to open unlimited items. Or maybe you are missing formatting features that only are available with supscription or one time fee.

Don't be afraid of the subscriptions and one time in-app fees, just be aware of that and look for them. For most apps, they can't turn a profit with the free or $0.99 version. So do your homework and seek out the out-the-door full fledge costs before paying a small fee for something you won't go all in on.

You can always roadtest anything free or cheap to see if you think it is worth going further. You can always delete the app from your iPad if you don't like it.

I like the Safari browser. I also have Chrome for things that do not work on Safari. However, that seems to be rare. Even more rare than 10 years ago. My iPad air 3 took a tumble last week and the screen is busted. I have an appointment tomorrow for repair. This will be my first test of Apple Care.

In the meantime I have been using my iPhone 8+, my 27" iMac or Dell notebook with Windows 10. It all makes me realize how much I like my iPad. It drives home the fact that it is useful to me. It takes some time. Even more when coming from a Windows world. It was how I started my migration from Windows to Apple. I have my hands in both worlds.

Sorry to hear about your Ipad Air.

I got a very sturdy aftermarket case for my Ipad and am hoping it could survive a fall.


Everybody tells me I will love the the Ipad once I learn to use it. But it does take some time to learn.

And Opera, and Edge.

I have Safari, Firefox, Opera, and Edge on my iPad.
