However, I tend to use it more than I did the older one so that could be the major issue! Regardless, this is a great article that runs down what you can do to get yourself some extra battery life out of your iPad. Some seem to be no brainers, such as turning down the brightness and turning off the 4G when you aren't using it, but it's the simple things that get past you when you least expect it right? For me I totally forgot about location services on the iPad and turning it off helped a great deal. No biggie since I don't use it all that often.&nbsp;</p>
