Go to OSX Daily to read How to Remap Modifier Keys on iPad Keyboard

Recent releases of iPadOS added a feature that few expected – but many were happy to see – in the form of the ability to alter the modifier keys on an external keyboard attached to an iPad. That includes Bluetooth keyboards, the Magic Keyboard, and even Windows keyboards that are in use with iPad.

This is a great solution for people who also change what modifier keys do on their Mac and have had to live with their muscle memory tripping them up when they make the switch to an iPad. That doesn’t need to be a problem anymore, and it could be a huge deal for…

Go to OSX Daily to read How to Set Time Limits on iPhone & iPad Apps with Screen Time

Want to set a time limit for app usage on iPhone or iPad? Screen Time lets you do just that.

At a time where we all perhaps use our iPhones a little too much, knowing exactly how long we spend with it in our hand can be useful. Knowing which apps we use most can inform our decisions around usage habits, too. But if all that fails simply setting a time limit might be the only way to go. Apple makes it easy to do exactly that by setting time limits on specific apps and how long they can be used for on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Setting an app time limit is a…

Many of us take hundreds or even thousands of pictures on our iPhones and iPads over the course of a year. All of these photos are mixed along with all other saved images too, including screenshots, images you download from the internet, and pictures you receive from social networks, all in the primary camera roll photos album. This can make it difficult to find a specific picture within the stock Photos app. This is why organizing your pictures with albums is key when it comes to being able to quickly access the photos you want to.

With each new iteration of…

Did you know you can now use custom fonts with iPhone and iPad? If there is one thing that iPhones and iPads have been lacking for too long, it’s support for custom fonts.

But as of iOS and iPadOS 13 and newer, custom font support is here. And as you might expect, they’re pretty easy to get up and running.

While not all apps support custom fonts out of the gate, all of the main players have already released…

All modern iPad models have the ability to use Split Screen mode, allowing you to have two apps open at once, side-by-side. Using Split Screen on iPad is fairly easy once you learn how it works, but it’s also not necessarily discoverable or intuitive, so if you haven’t learned how to use the multitasking feature on iPad yet to split screen two apps then don’t feel left out.

This article will explain how to use Split Screen on any iPad with iPadOS 13, iOS 12, or later.

Every now and then, when we come across a really good song, we look up its lyrics on the internet. If you’re an iPhone or iPad user, your best bet so far was to see the full lyrics on Apple Music or search on Google using a web browser. As you can tell, this isn’t…

With so many great websites on the internet it’s very easy to find yourself with many, many open browser tabs.

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.
