Getting Information About Your iPad

The Settings app provides technical, storage, data-use, and other diagnostic information about your iPad.

To get general information

  • Tap Settings > General > About to get information about your iPad, including available storage space, serial numbers, and network addresses.

    You can also view or turn off diagnostic information that’s sent to Apple.

To see or change the name of your iPad

  • Tap Settings > General > About > Name.

    The name appears in the iTunes sidebar when your iPad is connected to iTunes and it’s being used by iCloud, Personal Hotspot, or other services.

To view storage, battery charge, and data use

  • Tap Settings > General > Usage to view available storage space, the percentage of battery power remaining, and (on 4G/3G models) cellular data use red_a.jpg.

    red_a.jpg If you’re running low on space, use the Usage screen to finger the storage hogs.
