How to Set Up Your Brand-New AirPods Pro

Setting up these third-generation wireless earbuds isn’t that difficult, but there are a few settings you’re definitely going to want to play with if you preordered a pair yourself (or plan to pick some up later).

How to Access a Lost iPad That's Locked With Apple's 'Find My'

Apple’s “Find My” feature can be a powerful tool for recovering lost or stolen devices. It can also be a pain in the ass if you’ve purchased or otherwise legally acquired a used device that’s still tied to another person’s account. In this week’s Tech 911 column, we’re tackling the latter.

How to Change the Size of Your App Icons in iPadOS 13

One of the more jarring experiences you’ll encounter when updating your iPad to Apple’s iPadOS 13 this fall—including having to call it that from now on—are the slightly smaller icons now gracing your iPad’s Home screen and pages.

Like a juice cleanse, this icon diet is only a temporary fad. It appears Apple is going to let you revert back to the beefier icons you’ve been using all this time if you prefer your apps to look like a delicious thicc steak than a lean patty. At least, that’s my impression based on the latest iPadOS 13 beta—version 5!—which now comes with a little setting for adjusting the size of your app icons.

Make your app icons big or small

If you’re currently running the iPadOS 13 beta, or you know smaller icons are going to drive you crazy and you’ll want to change this as soon as iPadOS 13 drops in (probably) September, here’s how to fatten up your icons.

First, pull up the Settings app. You’ll then want to tap on Display & Brightness. Toward the bottom of this section, look for the new option for “App Icon Size.” You can’t miss it, as you’ll see a little graphic that shows you how many icons will fit on a page in “More” and “Bigger” modes:

That’s it! I haven’t reinstalled iPadOS 13 lately, but it makes sense that Apple would also ask you this preference as part of your device’s initial setup process. If not, now you know where to find it.

How to Use Faster Context Menus in the Latest iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 Beta

The fourth iOS 13 and iPadOS beta has rolled out for developers, and while there are the usual list of changes and bug-fixes in Beta 4, one of the more interesting tweaks is a much more responsive Context Menu that you’ll be able to pull up on any device running iOS or iPadOS 13.

To try it out, simply long-press your finger on any app. You’ll need to spend less time doing so than you otherwise would on an iOS 12-running iPhone XS—the “Haptic Touch” feature that serves as its substitute for 3D Touch.

Apple has even dropped a new, special command in this Context Menu: “Rearrange Icons,” which puts your apps into the familiar jiggle mode so you can drag and reorganize them however you want. (You can also just hold down for a second longer to enable the rearranging mode with a single press, or “pry” the app by moving it with your finger when the Context Menu pops up.)

Not only does iOS 13’s 3D Touch menu now refer to “3D & Haptic Touch,” but you’ll find a new option for adjusting “Touch Duration,” or the amount of time you’ll need to hold your finger on something to activate an action. You can find it by going to Settings > General > Accessibility > Touch > 3D & Haptic Touch.

Does this new move toward Context Menus mean that 3D Touch is on its way out? It’s possible—I wouldn’t expect Apple to keep this not-used-much feature alive in future iPhone generations.
