How to use Picture Frame on iPad

Summer vacation season is starting in North America and Europe. Millions of digital pictures will be taken with our iPads, smart phones and digital cameras to capture those beautiful landscapes, fun adventures, and precious family moments.

What happens with all those pictures when we come home from our trip?
Probably about 1% or fewer are actually printed. A much bigger percentage is uploaded on Facebook and shared with friends and family.


Applicable to:
iPad versions: iPad 2, the New iPad, iPad mini, iPad with Retina Display
iOS versions: iOS 6 and up

Tip: If you have an old iPad that has been replaced by a new one, and you haven’t sold or given the old iPad away, you may want to use the old iPad as a Digital Photo Frame.
