How to Use Your iPad Air and Pro Without a Home Button to Get Around

0 26

In 2018, the first iPad with no Home button was released. While change is always a little scary, losing the home button does not have to be a scary story. You might find yourself asking, “Where is the Home button on my iPad?,” despite the fact that it might come as a bit of a shock at first. The majority of users quickly adjust to the absence of a Home button. If you have an iPad without a button, we will demonstrate how to use it below.

Swiping up from the bottom center takes the place of the Home button on iPads and iPhones that do not have one. On your iPad, you can return to the Home Screen by swiping up from the bottom center of the screen. In all apps, this gesture will be indicated by a thin line at the bottom. However, here is a brief recap of the iPad’s anatomy.

1. Top Button: Sleep/Wake

The Sleep/Wake button can be found on your iPad in the upper right corner. Siri can be activated by pressing and holding this button. Pressing this button puts your iPad back to sleep when it is on and awake. Pressing it wakes your device when it is idle. You can also turn Lock/Unlock on, which causes your iPad to wake up when you open its cover. You can also forward incoming calls to Voicemail by pressing the Sleep/Wake button.

This button is your Touch ID for iPad Air 4th generation and later and iPad Mini 6th generation and later. Face ID will be used for other models. On the off chance that you have Face ID or Contact ID empowered, to open your gadget, you just wake your iPad and check the screen out. Once you are recognized, the lock icon at the top should unlock, allowing you to begin using the device. To access your Home Screen, swipe up from the bottom of the screen. Press the Top button again to lock your iPad. Wake your iPad, swipe up from the bottom of the screen, and then enter your passcode to unlock it if you don’t have Face ID or Touch ID enabled.

2. Volume Buttons

The volume buttons are located on the right side of your tablet, near the top, and they can be used to control your ringer and alerts as well as the volume when playing videos and music. Go to Settings > Sounds to change what the buttons control. You will be able to use the volume buttons to control the levels of your ringer and alert if you turn on Change with Buttons. On my iPad, I prefer to turn off all notifications and only use the volume buttons to control video and music playback. Check out our Tip of the Day for additional iPad customization options.

3. USB-C Connector

In portrait orientation, this port is on the bottom of your iPad and is where you plug in the USB-C charger that came with it. The device you use to charge your iPad is this.

And using iPads without a Home button is as simple as that! Don’t worry about this change. Although I honestly don’t miss the Home button at all, I was very concerned that I wouldn’t like it. I adore the larger screen on my iPad, but now that I think about it, I don’t remember ever wanting a Home button for it. Cheers to advance, in any event, when it’s difficult!
