How to Make a Website Go Full Screen on Your iPad

safari ipad screen size problem

You can view almost any type of web content on an iPad, but it doesn’t readily support full-screen mode. People who prefer to use the Safari browser on the iPad face a problem viewing web content without browser panels, elements, etc.

If you want to view a webpage, course, or HTML5 presentation, it will be much more convenient to do it in full-screen mode. Full-screen viewing looks more native and provides additional space for your content, while hiding all Safari elements but the main window.  

In this article, we provide a brief guide on how to view a website full screen on an iPad — and you won’t even need to change your iPad settings.

How to Open Safari in Full-Screen Mode on an iPad

  • First, launch the Safari browser from the home screen and go to the webpage that you wish to view in full-screen mode.

iPad Full Screen Web App: Tapping on the Share button

Note : This way of viewing a webpage, course, or presentation in full-screen mode works if the source code of the webpage contains the following tag:

<meta name=”apple-mobile-web-app-capable” content=”yes “>

You can add this tag to your webpage using a third-party tool like iWeb SEO Tool or any other tool you wish. Please note that you need to first add the tag, refresh the page, and then add a bookmark to your home screen.

How to View a Video in Full-Screen Mode on an iPad

To get a video to show in full-screen mode on an iPad, you’ll need to download a standalone video app. There are multiple apps on the market, but you can use YouTube’s app, for example. Its interface will look almost the same as it would in a browser on a PC, but there are some differences to YouTube on a touch screen device in regard to switching to a full-screen mode.

To make the YouTube app play in full-screen mode, choose and open a video. When the video starts playing, tap on it once. You’ll see several additional options, including dual arrows at the bottom right corner. Tap the arrows to go to full screen.

How to View a PowerPoint Presentation on an iPad

If you want to make your PowerPoint projects available on the iPad, you can easily do so by converting PowerPoint slides to HTML5 with iSpring Converter . It works as a PowerPoint add-in, so you can convert your presentation right from PowerPoint with all of its functionality and appearance preserved. If you want to protect your content from unauthorized access, you can add an extra layer of protection to your presentation by setting a password, restricting the time allowed for viewing, and adding a watermark.

How to Make Apps Full Screen on the iPad

Some apps don’t fill the entire screen of the iPad, but you can resize them to take full advantage of the expanded aspect ratio. 

To have an app take up the full screen, drag the handle to the bottom corner of the iPad. If you’re using a mouse or trackpad, then use the mouse pointer on any edge of the window to resize it.

How to Troubleshoot Safari Display Issues

If Safari doesn’t open a webpage or work as expected on your iPad, here a few solutions that might help:

  • Reload the page
  • Install software updates and restart
  • Turn extensions off if there are any installed in your browser
  • Try opening the website in a private browser window
  • Check the privacy, security, and website settings
  • Reload the page without Private Relay if you’re subscribed to iCloud+ and are using this feature
  • Check your VPN or other security software if you have these installed on your iPad
  • Check network settings

To get the details about using these methods, check out the official Apple website . 

How to Remove Split Screen on Safari 

Apple devices are multitasking tools. The clearest evidence of this is that the Safari browser features a split screen. It allows you to open two websites in two separate windows simultaneously. These split-screen windows work independently of each other and help users to be more productive. For example, you can open YouTube to watch an instructional video in one window and open another website next to it to find some additional information on a topic. 

Split View is enabled by default, so you can’t disable it forever. But there are a few tricks that can help you get your iPad screen back to full size.

To close Split View, tap the Multitasking button in the Safari window that you want to keep, then tap the full screen button. You can also drag the central app divider left or right over the Safari window that you want to close. 

You can also merge your Safari windows into a single one to enable full-screen mode. Just touch and hold the tabs button in the toolbar and tap Merge All Windows .

To go into more details about how to use split screen in Safari on your iPad, visit the Apple website . 

What to Do if Safari Opens in a Small Window

If a website opens as a small, narrow window off to the side, you likely have an instance of Safari opening in slide-over view.  

To make Safari full screen, pull down on the gray grab bar at the top of the browser view that allows you to transform the view into split screen. Then drag a central app divider all the way to the edge of the screen.

Fixing Safari issues on iPad can take seconds to fix due to an unknown minor issue, or it can take a lot longer. Here's how to fix it when Safari won't work on an iPad.

Causes of Safari Not Working On iPad 

There are many reasons why Safari may not be working on iPad. Try these troubleshooting tips to figure out what's happened.

  • Your iPad is out of date. If your iPad is not up to date, you may find yourself running into trouble loading standard apps including Safari.
  • You're offline. If your iPad doesn't have a data connection, Safari won't be able to load any websites, making it look as if Safari is the issue.
  • Your iPad has a major problem. If your iPad won't load any apps including Safari, the problem may be deeper than just the one app.

How to Fix Safari Not Working On iPad 

If your iPad won't open Safari or it won't load correctly, it severely limits your ability to browse the internet. Here's how to fix Safari not working on iPad. 

Restart your iPad . Many common issues are solved by restarting or rebooting the device in question. Restart your iPad to hopefully fix Safari.

Check your data connection . If your iPad is a Wi-Fi model, check you're connected to a Wi-Fi network with internet access. If your iPad has a cellular connection, check it has a signal and is working correctly. Tap Settings > Cellular and check the toggle next to Safari is On.

Check Airplane mode . Check if Airplane mode is enabled on your iPad. If it is, you won't be able to browse online.

Check content restrictions . If you have parental controls set up on your iPad, these may stop you from browsing using Safari. Check the settings to confirm this isn't the issue.

Clear your browsing history . If Safari opens but is unresponsive, clear your browsing history to see if that makes it work more effectively. 

Disable Safari suggestions. Safari suggestions can sometimes cause Safari to crash. Try disabling them by tapping Settings > Safari > then toggle off the Safari Suggestions switch.

Update your iPad . If you haven't updated your iPad in a while, you may need the latest version of iPadOS to correct any issues. It's simple to do but set aside a while for the update process to complete.

Reset your iPad . Resetting your iPad to factory settings removes all your personal information but can sometimes solve an underlying issue previous steps haven't solved.

Contact Apple . If none of the above fixes work, you may have a hardware issue with your iPad. If you have remaining warranty or AppleCare+ , the appointment and fix may be free.

The first thing you should check is that you're entering the correct URL. If you're typing it manually, try finding a link. If you're following a link, try typing it by hand. The website may also be down, and you should try again later.

The best way is to delete your Safari data. Go to Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Data .

The most common iPad problems and how to fix them

Tyler Lacoma

Apple's iPad has consistently marked among the best tablets , and is considered to be a sort of trailblazer in the field in its own right. As a logical result, your first encounters with common tablet glitches are likely to be iPad glitches. If you're not sure what to do to fix your device, that's okay, as you have to start somewhere. Here are some somewhat common problems that we've found plague iPads again and again, as well as some related iPad troubleshooting advice. Take care and read through the issues related to your problem to get started troubleshooting your iPad.

Dead pixels

Ipados updates not installing, the frozen screen glitch, ipad won’t turn on, itunes or finder don't recognize the ipad, ipad won’t charge, ipad won’t connect to wi-fi, ipad running slow or lagging, cellular data connection dropping, ipad randomly crashes and glitches out, slow battery recharges, apple pencil not working, ipad stuck in bootloops, what you need.

While the following issues are all centered on the basic Apple iPad, they may also apply to other versions of Apple's tablet. We also have guides available to iPad Pro problems as well as iPad Air problems , should you be looking for more device-specific advice.

It should also go without saying that the age-old advice of turn it off and then turn it back on again also applies to your iPad. Our intensive guide about how to reset an iPad — which includes both soft resets and factory resets — may be of additional guidance for you as well.

It can be frustrating if a pixel isn’t working on your iPad. You’ll first notice this as an unresponsive dot on the display that doesn’t change, or stays black no matter what happens. Sometimes there may be more than one pixel like this.

Possible solutions

  • If the pixel still lights up but is simply stuck or never goes to the right color, you can try manually fixing it yourself. Wrap your thumb in a clean cloth and apply gentle, firm pressure to the area of the display with the pixel, slowly moving your thumb as you do so. Sometimes this can help fix any issues the panel is experiencing.
  • Flashing bright, changing colors can also help reset a pixel. You can plenty of Pixel Fix videos on YouTube to run at full screen to help with this, or even find an app that does the same thing.
  • If the pixel is permanently dark no matter what you do, it’s dead. You cannot fix a dead pixel. If it’s a minor issue and not distracting, you can leave it. But it’s a good idea to take your iPad into an Apple Store and ask about a display replacement.
  • Our more intensive guide to fixing dead pixels largely focuses on monitors, but the advice and some of the programs recommended will also work on your iPad.

Eager to get the latest iOS/iPadOS updates and all the new features offered? You may discover that your iPad is obstinately refusing to download the update, even if it says it will or if it was scheduled to update at a specific time. Fortunately, this is usually due to not meeting specific requirements needed to update, not a permanent flaw on your iPad.

  • Double check to make sure your iPad is compatible with the latest versions of iPadOS. Check out our lists of iPadOS 16 compatible devices and iPadOS 17 compatible devices .
  • If your device is compatible, you may need to manually update your device. Here's how to download iPadOS 16 and how to download iPadOS 17 manually.

Still not working? Here are some common issues that prevent updates: * Make sure your iPad battery has at least a 50% charge. To be safe, it’s a good idea to just plug your iPad in before you start a big update. * Make sure you are not using a cellular data connection for your internet. The iPad will not start such a big download when on a data connection to avoid using up cell data. * Check that Low Power Mode is turned off. If it’s accidentally enabled, the update probably won’t work. * Disable your VPN if you are using one. While you can whitelist sites on many VPNs, that doesn’t really work for downloading a software update straight from Apple, so disable it for this change, and turn it back on afterward.

You may find from time to time that your iPad screen freezes and remains unresponsive to your touch. You're not alone, as this is a common complaint. The most likely source of the problem is an app, but it’s not always easy to identify which one. If it happens repeatedly, take note of what you have running and try uninstalling it to see if that solves the problem permanently. Whatever the cause, your immediate solutions to quickly troubleshoot a frozen iPad screen are the same.

  • Try restarting your device first by pressing and holding the Power button until you see “slide to power off” on the screen, and then slide to power off. Press and hold the same button to turn it back on. You’ll know it worked when you see the Apple logo.
  • If the screen isn’t responding, you might need to force restart the device in which case you should press and hold the Power button and the Home button at the same time for around 10 seconds. You’ll know it worked when the Apple logo appears. For newer iPads without the Home button, press and quickly release the Volume Up button, press and quickly release the Volume Down button, and then press and hold the Power button until the device restarts.
  • If it stubbornly refuses to react to a restart or reset, then you’ll need to try a restore. Plug it into your computer using the cable provided. Load up iTunes on the computer, select your iPad, choose the Summary tab, and hit the Restore iPad button. This will erase your content, so you may prefer to choose Restore Backup on the Summary tab. Bear in mind that you’ll lose anything you haven’t backed up.

It’s a nightmare with any electronic device when it refuses to turn on at all. Don’t assume the worst, though, it may prove easy to revive.

  • Try holding down the Power button and the Home button together until you see the Apple logo. For newer iPads without the Home button, press and quickly release the Volume up button, press and quickly release the Volume down button, and then press and hold the Power button until the device restarts.
  • Maybe the battery is just empty. Plug the iPad into the wall charger using the original cable and charger that came in the box and wait an hour before trying the first step again.
  • If your iPad turns on but gets stuck during startup, then plug it into your computer with iTunes running and repeat step one, except this time, don't let go of the buttons when you see the Apple logo, keep holding them until you see the recovery mode screen. You should get the option to Restore or Update . Choose Update and it will try to reinstall iOS without wiping your data.
  • If none of this works, then it's time to contact Apple or drop into an Apple Store if you're able to.

iTunes or Finder can sometimes glitch out and not recognize your iPad. Obviously speaking, this can cause major issues with using your iPad as intended. If iTunes or Finder aren’t recognizing your iPad then you can try a few things to solve the problem.

  • Check the battery icon on the iPad when you plug it into your computer. If it has a lightning bolt on it to denote charging or it says Not charging next to it then you know the port and the cable are working and you can move to the next solution. If it doesn’t, then try another port. If that doesn’t work, then try another cable.
  • (If you are running MacOS Catalina you can skip this as you'll be using Finder to interface with your iPad.) Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes. If it’s on a PC then go to Help and then select Check for updates . If it’s on a Mac then hit the iTunes tab and select Check for updates . If you have the latest version or updating makes no difference, try the next solution.
  • Turn the iPad off. Turn the computer off. Turn them both back on again and plug the iPad back in. If you see a Trust this computer alert, unlock your device and tap Trust .

If you find that your iPad won’t charge when you plug it into a power adapter, there are a couple of possible reasons. If it doesn’t charge when you plug it into the computer, it may just be the port you are using, try the power adapter instead. You can see whether the USB port on your computer is charging it or not by looking at the battery icon on the iPad. If it is charging, you’ll see the lightning symbol; if not, it will say Not charging next to it. Some computer ports can’t provide enough juice to charge the iPad, and it will always charge more slowly via the computer, even if it does work. Read on for more ways to troubleshoot and iPad that just won't charge.

  • You want to check if it’s the cable or power adapter itself so, if possible, try the cable and power adapter with another compatible device, or try a different power adapter and cable.
  • It's always worth rebooting your iPad to see if that helps.
  • Some people report success after turning on Airplane mode, so it's worth a try.
  • If the cable or power adapter is not the problem and nothing else has worked, then there could be a fault with the iPad and you’ll need to contact Apple, contact the retailer where you bought it, go into an Apple Store, or take it to a third party repair shop as the culprit could be a damaged battery, or a damaged charge port, both of which are repairable.

Very few users will want an iPad that isn't connected to the internet, but getting connected isn't always easy. Before you start serious troubleshooting, you should check Settings > Wi-Fi on the iPad and make sure that it is turned on. It’s also worth making sure that Wi-Fi is accessible on another device.

  • There’s a reason IT departments the world over tell everyone to turn a device off and on again as a first troubleshooting step — because it so often works. Try turning off your iPad and router and then turn them both on again and wait a few seconds before trying to reconnect.
  • Try telling the iPad to forget the network in Settings by tapping the network name and selecting forget. Turn the iPad off and on again and then reconnect to the network and re-enter the details as necessary. You can also try Settings > General > Reset > Reset network settings .
  • Make sure you have the latest iOS software by going to Settings > General > Software update . You should plug your iPad into the power adapter before updating. Older iPads can be updated via iTunes on the Summary tab via the Check for update option.
  • If your iPad still won’t connect then it’s worth checking with your ISP for help or advice. The problem could be related to your specific router. You might want to update the firmware or change the channel.
  • If nothing so far has worked, then you may consider trying to connect to a different Wi-Fi network with your iPad just to test if it works. If not, then it's time to contact Apple for further help.

If you find that your iPad is not its usual zippy self and you are experiencing lag when you navigate, you can try a couple of fixes. You may just have too many things running.

  • Double-tap the Home button and swipe up on each open app or game to close it. If you have a newer iPad without the Home button, then swipe up from the bottom of the Home screen and pause slightly in the middle of the screen to open the recently used apps list.
  • You could also just reset the iPad by holding down the Power button and the Home button simultaneously for 10 seconds. For newer iPads without the Home button, press and quickly release the Volume up button, press and quickly release the Volume down button, and then press and hold the Power button until the device restarts.
  • You really need at least 2GB of free space for smooth operation, so take a look in Settings > General > iPad storage and check. You may need to delete some files or uninstall some apps. Some apps take up more and more space over time, so it can even be worth uninstalling and then reinstalling an app to clear it. You may also consider going to Settings > Safari and tapping Clear history and Website data , then Clear history and Data to clear out your cache, but this will also log you out of websites you've signed into.
  • As a last resort, you might try a factory reset . This will wipe everything though, so make sure you back up first. If you do a factory reset, test the iPad without restoring a backup just to see if it runs any better. If you subsequently restore a backup and it slows down again, then you'll know the issue is with something in the backup.

Cellular data connections dropping can cause serious annoyances as you move about. Obviously, this will be seriously influenced by how good the coverage is in your area. If you have good coverage on the same network with your phone, but the iPad is struggling, you could try a couple of things. First, check in Settings > General > Cellular and make sure it’s on. You could also try a restart. If it continues to be a problem, go through the steps below.

  • Make sure you have up-to-date carrier settings in Settings > General > About .
  • Check that you have the latest iOS software by going to Settings > General > Software update .
  • Remove the SIM card and put it back in again.
  • You can also try Settings > General > Reset > Reset network settings .
  • Some people have found success by disabling LTE in Settings > Cellular data > Enable LTE .
  • If none of that works, a factory reset might be worth trying, just make sure you back up first.
  • If you’re still having problems, it’s time to contact your carrier’s support or visit an Apple Store for more help.

Sometimes your iPad will randomly turn off, restart, or have an app crash. You might find that this is a bigger issue on older iPads. You can try a few different things to alleviate the problem. It is quite likely to be related to specific apps, so take note of what you were doing when it crashes and see if a pattern emerges over time.

  • Press and hold the Power button and then slide to power off. Press and hold the button to turn it on again. You could also reset by pressing and holding the Power button and the Home button at the same time for 10 seconds. For newer iPads without Home buttons, press and quickly release the Volume up button, press and quickly release the Volume down button, and then press and hold the Power button until the device restarts. Neither of these solutions is liable to affect a permanent fix, but it may offer some relief.
  • Connect to Wi-Fi and go to Settings > General > Software update to ensure that your iPad has the latest software. If there’s an update available then download it and install it.
  • Open the App Store and select Updates and then update all of your apps.
  • If your crashes are occurring in Safari specifically then try going to Settings > Safari and tap Clear history and website data , then Clear history and data . Note this will log you out of websites that you're logged into.
  • If you’re still having problems then try wiping the iPad with a factory reset and restoring it.
  • If none of the above has worked for you then try contacting Apple. If you’re able to reproduce the crash and you can take it into an Apple Store to show them, then you will be able to get some help.

When everything is running as it usually should, your iPad should take about three hours to recharge. If you own an older model, it still would only take about four hours, at a maximum. That said, many users report that it takes much longer for their iPad to recharge fully. We have a couple of tips to try and speed up the charging process.

  • Make sure your iPad is updated. Infamously, iPadOS 13 caused these types of battery charging issues for many users. If it's an issue with iPadOS, you can't do much except live with it until Apple improves the software and releases a new version.
  • Check your ports and connectors. Look for any signs of damage, grime that's blocking ports, or anything else that may be interrupting the connection. If you aren't sure, try to find another compatible charging cable and switch it out to see if this makes a difference. Do not use an off-brand cable or charger to charge your iPad! If you are using one, stop right away and switch to a version straight from Apple.
  • Make sure your iPad isn't trying to do a lot when you are charging it. Disconnect from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth or put it into Airplane mode first. Don't use your iPad when it's charging, and see how much this helps.
  • Always remember to make sure that your iPad isn't put in a particularly hot or cold place. This can damage the battery and cause long-term problems that can't really be fixed without a full replacement.

We completely understand how frustrating this issue can be, mainly because you likely bought the Pencil to pair specifically with your iPad. We have several solutions to try out to get the two working together again.

  • Make sure you have the right Apple Pencil and iPad. Compatibility issues do exist. We have a full Apple Pencil compatibility guide , and certain Apple Pencil and iPad combinations simply won't work. Also, if you have an iPad Air 2 or earlier model, the Pencil won't be able to work with your screen at all, although some third-party stylus models could work for you. We know, it's confusing. But it's important to find out what Pencil and iPad model you have to see if they can work together.
  • Restart your iPad and try again. When you restart, take a look at Settings and Bluetooth to make sure your Bluetooth is turned on. If you already see the Pencil as a recognized device in the Bluetooth settings, then select the information icon, and choose Forget this Device . Then try reconnecting.
  • Make sure the Pencil is charged. It's obvious, but this problem really does happen a lot.

A bootloop is a glitch where your device gets stuck in a cycle of turning off and turning back on; The iPad continues repeating that over and over again on a seemingly endless loop. We’ve found that these frustrating cycles tend to result from a bug in whatever app you were last trying to use. That said, there could also be a couple of other factors causing the bootloop. We have several recommendations to try out to stop the looping before you take your iPad to the Apple Store for help.

Possible solutions * Wait for an update. Unfortunately, bootloops are often caused by bugs in specific apps or the iPad’s current operating system. In that situation, you just need to wait for an app or OS update to be released. A recent example of this happened in June 2020, when a version of iPad iOS caused iPads to bootloop unexpectedly while working, usually around a minute or so after starting up. Apple doesn’t waste a second when it comes to releasing patches for these problems. Just keep an eye out for new updates. * Force a manual restart, or “soft reset,” and see if it solve the problem. A manual reset is a powerful troubleshooting tool. To start the reboot, hold the Power and Home buttons down for about 10 seconds simultaneously. You don’t have to count it down; you’ll see when the reboot has started because the Apple logo will appear on the screen. Some newer iPads don’t have a Home button. For those devices, press and quickly release the Volume up button, press and quickly release the Volume down button, and then press and hold the Power button until the device restarts. If this doesn’t work, you may need to force a factory reset, unfortunately. Before resetting anything, though, may sure you back up all of your important data. * Go into recovery mode. This feature prevents bootloops and opens the door for your iPad to fully update if your device is stuck in an infinite bootloop. Apple has a full guide , but to explain it briefly — connect your iPad to a computer; then press and release the Volume up button, the Volume down button, the Top button, and then hold the Top button as your iPad restarts. If this is completed correctly, your iPad will reboot into recovery mode. If your device has a Home button, hold the Home and Top buttons simultaneously. Continue holding them until you see that recovery screen.

The current and previous model of the entry-level Apple iPad have both received significant price cuts from Best Buy, so if you're on the hunt for cheap iPad deals, these are the offers that you wouldn't want to miss. The Wi-Fi, 64GB model of the ninth-generation Apple iPad is down to $250 from $330 for savings of $80, while the Wi-Fi, 64GB model of the 10th-generation Apple iPad is on sale for $349 following a $100 discount on its original price of $449. We're not sure how long stocks will last for these tablets, so if you're interested in taking advantage of either of these offers, you need to hurry with your purchase. If you don't act fast, you may miss out on the savings. Apple iPad 9th Gen (Wi-Fi, 64GB) -- $250, was $330

The ninth-generation Apple iPad was released in 2021, but it maintains a spot in our list of the best iPads as the best iPad on a budget. It's still a very reliable and solid choice if you want an Apple tablet, with a 10.2-inch Retina display that's bright and beautiful, and smooth performance despite the relatively old A13 Bionic chip that was introduced in the iPhone 11 because it can be upgraded to the latest iPadOS 17. The device also features an 8MP Wide back camera, a 12MP Ultra Wide front camera with Center Stage technology, the Touch ID fingerprint recognition system for security, and battery life of up to 10 hours on a single charge.

If you haven't used an iPhone in a while, or if you haven't tried to update your lock screen, they you might be happy to learn about some of the new customization features that are available in iOS 17. Although iOS has made some controversial changes to its UI, such as moving the notifications to the bottom of the lock screen, they are also more welcome changes to the customization options for the lock screen.

Introduced in iOS 16 was a slew of lock screen customization features to let you tweak your phone's lock screen to your liking, and these same features are available in iOS 17 as well. While the lock screen used to be just a static image, you can now make it more dynamic with options like cycling through collections of your photos, so you can show off your favorite photos of your pets, your family, or beautiful locations that you've visited.

Introducing a virtual private network (VPN) to your everyday web browsing is a smart move for a few reasons. For starters, it’s a great way to safeguard your user data when you’re surfing the internet. Because VPNs switch you to a different network and IP address, they’re terrific for accessing region-specific content. Have you been wanting to watch a series or two that’s only available for streaming in certain countries? A VPN will let you watch these movies and shows! And one of the best parts of the VPN experience is it’s not just limited to your PC.

7 Ways to Fix iPad Screen Glitching or Flickering

Say you’re working on your iPad. Suddenly, your iPad’s screen starts glitching or flickering. Wouldn’t that be frustrating? On the one hand, your boss is waiting for your deliverable, and on the other, your iPad has given up on you. However, fret not; there are simple troubleshooting options that you can use to fix the blinking iPad screen.

iPad screen glitching or flickering

The iPad isn’t the only Apple product subject to the screen glitching issue. Users of the iPhone have borne the brunt of screen flickering as well. Before we delve into the solutions to resolve the problem, let us understand why your iPad’s screen is misbehaving.

Why Is My iPad Screen Jumping Around

Right from a damaged display to a failed software update, hardware and software glitches can cause your iPad screen to flicker. Many users using the beta version of the software face issues pertaining to the screen.

iPad screen jumping around

While there can be several reasons your iPad screen is flickering, you can resolve the issue. After all, a clean screen is essential to make the best of the iPad ecosystem. Besides, if you work or sketch on the iPad, the screen flickering could tamper with your boss’ temper or hamper the color scheme.

How to Fix Blinking iPad Screen

Under this section, we have enlisted troubleshoots targeting both hardware and software issues. That way, you can rule out possibilities of external and internal problems to solve the screen blinking issue.

1. Use Stable iPadOS

When Apple released the iPadOS 17 beta, several users flooded the internet complaining of screen glitching. So, screen glitching can be triggered on your iPad due to a beta version of an operating system. A beta version could be a breeding ground for many bugs.

Hence, the screen glitching or flickering issues could be a by-product of the unstable iPadOS. Our advice? Switch to a stable iPadOS.

2. Tap iPad’s Back

Is your iPad screen jumping? Tap on your iPad’s back a couple of times. As weird as it sounds, this trick has helped netizens fix iPad screen flickering problems. Now, when we say tap, we don’t mean use your iPad like a punching bag or a baseball bat.

Simply lay your iPad on a flat table. Ensure that the back of your iPad is facing the top. Then, give 2-3 gentle yet firm taps on the back.


Note: Tapping the back of your iPad can cause serious defects to the internal components. Further, tap at the center of the iPad itself. Do not tap near the camera area, as that portion of the iPad is sensitive.

3. Connect to External Display

If none of the above hacks helped, we suggest connecting your iPad to an external display. An external display will help ascertain the root cause of the problem. For instance, if the screen continues to glitch even after connecting to an external display, there could be an issue with the iPad’s motherboard.

However, it could be a superficial software issue if it doesn’t flicker when connected. Further, connecting to another display will temporarily help you from seeing that blinking iPad screen.

4. Disable True Tone and Night Shift

True tone and night shift significantly change how the display appears. On the one hand, true tone changes the display’s color based on the ambient light; on the other, the night shift feature helps when you’re in dark surroundings. While these features are beneficial, they could hinder the display’s performance.

Several users of the iPad have reported that disabling true tone and night shift stopped their iPad screen from glitching. So, we advise you to disable true tone and night shift on your iPad. Here’s how to do so.

Step 1: Drag the Control Center down on your iPad. Then, long-press the display slider.


Step 2: Now, tap on the True Tone and Night Shift options to disable them.


5. Force Restart iPad

If nothing works, this is the last resort. Just force restart your iPad. If you have an iPad with the home button, press and hold the home button as well as the top button till the Apple logo appears.


However, if you have the newer models with the Touch ID at the bottom or the Face ID, press and release the volume up button, followed by the volume down button. Then, press and hold the top button till the Apple logo appears. This should stop your iPad screen from flickering.


6. Contact Apple Support

If nothing mentioned above worked for you, we suggest contacting Apple Support . The seasoned professionals of Apple would be better equipped to handle your iPad’s blinking screen. They will assess the issue from the angle of simple hardware-related problems to a deeper software perspective.

Glitch-Free iPad

The iPad screen glitching or flickering could be a huge barrier for iPad enthusiasts. Apart from spoiling the iPad experience, this could disturb your vision in the long run. We hope you stop your iPad screen from blinking time and again with our simple resolutions.
