Personalizing your Apple iPad is a must. It gives the iPad your own personal touch and makes using a lot more pleasant. Not too long ago, the iPad got its own OS, so that means that personalizing your iPad might be different than before.
The following tips will help you turn your iPad into one good-looking tablet. You’ll be able to personalize things such as your personal information right down to things such as how it looks.
Add Your Personal Information
To add personal information such as your name, email, birthday, and picture, you need to go to:
- Tap on the section that allows you to enter your Apple ID info
- Go to Name, Phone, Email
Enable Dark Mode
Besides giving your iPad a different look, Dark Mode also helps you save some battery life. To enable dark mode swipe down from the top right of the display to enable the Control center. Long-press on the Brightness indicator and the Dark Mode option.
Access and Add Widgets to Today View
If your iPad is in portrait mode, you’ll need to swipe right from the left side of the display to access Today View. In landscape mode, there is no need to swipe since it will appear automatically.
Swipe to the bottom and tap on the Edit option. To add a widget tap on the green plus signs and if you ever want to remove the widget tap on the red minus sign.
As long as your there, you can also toggle on the option always to have the Home Screen on. Right below that, you’ll see an option to pin your favorites so easy access. To add a widget to favorites, place your finger on the three lines, and drag it to the favorites section.
Add a Picture As Wallpaper
Adding an image from your iPad’s gallery can definitely help you give it your own personal touch. To do this, open the Photos app and select the image you want to add as a wallpaper.
Tap on the icon with an arrow pointing up and swipe up until you find the option that says Use as wallpaper. Tap on the option, and the image will begin to download.
Once the downloading process finishes, tap on the Set option at the bottom right. Choose if you want the wallpaper for the lock screen, Home screen, or both.
Add a Different Style Font
If you’re tired of using the same style fonts on your iPad, you might want to give the Fonts app (by Cool fonts & emoji keyboard) a try. If you don’t like this one, there are various other apps the App Store has to offer.
Once you give the app the necessary permissions, you can enjoy various fancy-looking fonts for your iPad. The app is free and easy to use.
So you can get an idea of what the font looks like, the app will give you a preview of the font style right above the keyboard.
Change the Text Size
While your friend may like his iPad to have huge letters, you prefer the text to be smaller. To make the text size as big or as small as you like to go to:
- Display & Brightness
At the bottom of all the options is the Text size option. When you tap on the option, you’ll see a slider that will allow you to see the text size even as you move the slider.
Edit Home Screen App Icons
As you install apps, the more your home screen fills up with the icons. In time, you may not use certain apps as often as others. To keep the apps you regularly use on the main page of your home screen, you’ll need to edit your home screen.
To put the apps icons in the order you want, long-press on any app icon and choose the Edit Home Screen option.
After pressing this option, all the app icons will start to jiggle. As they dance, tap (for a second or two) the app you want to move and drag it to the possible or home screen page you want it in. To make the apps tops moving, press the home screen.
There are various ways you can personalize your iPad, but hopefully, you’ve found that some on the list are to your liking. How will you be personalizing your iPad? Let me know in the comments below.
