How to Setup Home Sharing on the iPad
iPad Home Sharing

After you setup Home Sharing on iTunes, it is quite easy to get it working with the iPad. And once you have iPad Home Sharing working, you can share music, movies, podcasts and audiobooks. This means you can get access to your entire music and movie collection without taking up valuable space on your iPad.

  1. Go into your iPad's settings by touching the settings icon. It is the icon that looks like gears turning.
  2. On the left-hand side of the screen is the list of options. Scroll down until you see iPod. It's the setting below Safari.
  3. Once you have the iPod settings selected, you'll see a screen like the one above. Simply type in your Apple ID and password just as you did to set up iTunes home sharing.

And that's it. You can now share your music and movies from your PC or laptop to your iPad. Who needs a 64 GB model when you can just use iTunes Home Sharing?

Remember: You'll need to have your iPad and your computer connected to your Wi-Fi network to use iTunes Home Sharing.
