Got a new iPad? Whether it’s a Mini or a Pro, here are 10 key settings to change

Julian Chokkattu/Digital Trends New iPad? Great choice. Apple makes the best tablets you can buy right now, no matter if you choose the basic iPad , the new iPad Mini or iPad Air , and the iPad Pro . If you own an iPhone, you can use it to set up the iPad so you don’t need to configure any settings again. But if you use an Android phone — or you’re just setting an iPad up from scratch — there are some settings we think you should pay closer attention to over others. We rounded up the top 10 settings you should tweak on your new iPad to get the most out of it.

By default, all the iPad devices will freely show you notification content, but that may be a turn off for people who want a little more privacy. If you’re frequently in a cafe or library, for example, it may be a good idea to hide notification previews from prying eyes.
