Adding and managing contacts

Adding and managing contacts
The iPad allows you to save contact information for the people you
know using the Contacts app. You can use saved contact
information to quickly place a FaceTime call, send an email, and
more. The iPad allows you to create as many contacts as you need,
so you'll always have important contact information with you.
To add a contact:
1. Tap the Contacts icon on the Home Screen.
2. The contacts list will appear. Tap the + button.
3. Enter the desired contact information. At the very least, you
should enter a first and last name, as well as an email address.
However, you can also enter other information, like a phone
number, street address, birthday, and more.
4. When you're finished, tap Done.
To edit information for an existing contact, select the contact, then
tap Edit.
Managing contacts via iCloud.com
If you want to add or edit several contacts at the same time, you
might find it easier to use a computer with a normal keyboard. To do
this, simply navigate to www.iCloud.com, click Contacts, then add
or edit your contacts as needed. When you're done, the information
will be automatically synced to your iPad.
Your iPad must be connected with iCloud to use this feature.

Navigating contacts
If you have a lot of different people saved to your contacts list, it can
be difficult to find a contact quickly. Fortunately, there are two easy
ways to navigate your contacts:

Search: You can quickly search all of your contacts by using the
Search bar at the top of the contacts list. Just tap the Search bar
and type. Any contacts matching your search will appear.
Browse by letter: You can quickly browse through your contacts list by
letter. Just tap the desired letter to the right of the contacts list. You can
also drag your finger up or down the letters to quickly scroll through your
contacts.
