IPads are amazing devices, offering an incredible range of features and capabilities. One of the most useful and versatile is the ability to open local HTML files. With a few simple steps, you can easily open and view HTML files right on your iPad.

First, you need to make sure that the HTML file is saved in a compatible format, such as .html or .htm. Once you've confirmed this, you'll need to transfer the file onto your iPad using iCloud Drive or a similar service. Once it's in the cloud-storage app on your iPad, simply open it from there.

If iCloud Drive isn't an option for you, there are other ways to get your HTML file onto your iPad. You can it to yourself and then open it from the Mail app on your iPad, or you can use AirDrop from another Apple device in order to send it directly to your iPad.

Once the file is on your iPad, you can open it in Safari by tapping the file icon at the bottom of the screen and selecting ‘Open In Safari'. This will launch Safari with your HTML file already loaded so that you can view it right away. Alternatively, if you have any other browser installed on your iPad (such as Chrome), they should also be able to handle HTML files.

That's all there is to it! Opening a local HTML file on an iPad is simple and straightforward – no specialist knowledge is needed! With these few steps completed, you should now be able to easily access and view HTML files right on your iPad whenever you need them.
