Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Love it! Combined together with an iPhone the two work together giving excellent results. 02 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best pad on the market!! Just upgraded from ipod to ipad with a great deal from John Lewis, ordered Sunday P.M. arrived following Tuesday, great service as usual, read all the usual reviews and once again John Lewis came out on top for customer service and best value for money. 27 December 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Jury is still out Having been a happy iPhone user for many years, I decided that it would useful to compliment this with the iPad and benefit from the larger display. However, I'm not ecstatic. Why? The iPad is: 1. too heavy (impossible to hold in one hand for length of time so needs to be propped up. iPad Mini might be better in this instance) 2. battery charging is far too slow (takes hours) 3. Can only download photos/movies in certain formats via iTunes 4. Can't use USB directly to camera - had to buy expensive adapters - USB & SD 5. Not all iPhone apps are available on iPad 6. Unable to organise folders effectively for photos & files I did briefly research the MS Surface tablet because the keyboard option, MS Office apps, USB connectivity & light weight were all very attractive to me. However, IT colleagues at work persuaded me to stick with Apple. I'm not sure they're right..... 03 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely brilliant! After months of my husband saying he wanted one and me saying no no no,, I wish I had listened sooner! So much so now he wants another so he gets chance to use it! Seriously though do not put off buying this piece of kit, It has totally exceeded my expectations by far, has everything you could wish for. Great buy well worth it! 14 February 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by The new iPad - This device is both very expensive and irritatingly unfriendly. To start with, it comes without an instruction book. There is an online guide but when away from home with no access to the internet just how useful is that? It was purchased primarily for my wife to use as a photo album, but aside from the considerable difficulty in getting stored photos into it, once they are there it is not possible to edit the set by simply deleting or adding a photo to that set. If it is possible, then an instruction book would have been useful. On top of that it displays images in an order of its own choice rather than in strict numerical order, as would have been expected. In one mode it shows all landscape followed by all portrait. In the other mode it puts them almost in numerical order but with odd ones out of place. This is from a set which were renumbered specifically for putting into the iPad to show relatives and friends. Worse, perhaps, is that after transferring a folder of photos from a PC into the iPad, it is impossible to transfer another folder without deleting the first set. How mad is this? It seems that if you want to use it as a photo album you need to transfer everything into a single folder on the PC and then transfer that combined folder into the iPad and then hope you never need to put anything else into the iPad. This is after following the instructions in a complete guide to the iPad. It further appears that in order to download images from a standard digital photo card it is necessary to purchase two adapters, one that fits the iPad 4 plus the card adapter for the iPad 2 which then fits into the iPad 4 adapter (information from John Lewis staff). It is clear that Apple are using the device as a cash cow. Would you not have expected that such a device would have at least an SD card reader built in, or an adapter that fits directly into the new iPad? Whilst the picture quality is indeed excellent, how I wish I had bought a tablet for my wife instead. 26 January 2013
