How to set a timer on the camera for iPhone and iPad

Launch the Camera app on your iPhone or iPad.

Tap on the timer button.

Choose either 3 seconds or 10 seconds.

On the IPhone

On the iPhone, your flash will light up every second and then flash rapidly for the last 3 seconds of the countdown. Once the time ends, your iPhone or iPad will take the photo, in burst mode so you have a good amount of photos to choose from in case someone moves.

How to take a video

Where to view and edit photos and videos
Open the photos app on your Iphone/Ipad

Scroll down do see all your albums and phtoos.

How to edit photos

1. Edit and Auto Enhance

Open Photos to review the shots you've snapped, tap on one, then tap Edit (top-right). The editing options appear; their location will vary depending on whether your iPad is in portrait or landscape orientation. Often the most immediately useful option is Auto Enhance (represented by the magic wand icon).

Tap this and Photos will attempt to improve the colour and contrast of your photo automatically.

2. Crop and rotate

Tap the Crop tool. If Photos detects a line in the image that it thinks should be horizontal, it automatically rotates the shot to suit. You can fine-tune using the wheel, or undo by tapping Reset.

To crop, drag the white frame border or its corners. Optionally, tap the aspect ratio icon (overlapping squares); a rule-of-thirds grid will be displayed to help you perfect your composition. Click Done to save your changes.

3. Using Photo Filters

The Photo Filters option enables you to quickly add special effects to your photos. Tap the filters icon to reveal a row of effect previews.

Tap each in turn to see how it affects the image; tap Done to finish. You can remove an effect by tapping its preview again or by tapping None, and add further adjustments afterwards. You can revert to the unedited shot at any time, even if you've closed and reopened it.

4. Remove red-eye

Red-eye (caused by reflected camera flash) is a common problem in portraits. Photos has a built-in red-eye removal tool, which will appear if the app detects a face in shot.

Tap the tool (the eye-shaped icon), then tap on each affected eye. Sometimes you need to tap a few times for Photos to locate the red-eye; it can help if you pinch to zoom in first. Tap Done to finish.

How to shoot video with your iPhone or iPad

The video button is red                   and the photo button is white

Launch the Camera app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
Swipe from left to right across the bottom to switch from Photo to Video mode. (Or just tap the word Video.)
Tap the Record button to start your video - the button turns square and the second begin to roll.
Tap the Stop button to end your video.

Mouse cursor for ipad - trackpad for Ipad and Iphone

(This is helpful in moving the cursor to any point in a piece of text.)

Launch the app you want to use and bring up the keyboard.

Touch and hold the spacebar (or in older iPads any two keys) with your finger to  switch to the trackpad.

Restarting iPad

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPad. To turn iPad back on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.

Resetting iPad or Force restart

If turning the iPad off and back on again doesn't fix the problem, or the iPad is unresponsive when you try to turn it off, you have to reset it by doing the following:

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

(On the IPhone X and Ipad Pro press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Volume up button at the same time for at least ten seconds until the Apple logo appears.)
