How to Adjust iPad Icon Size on the Home Screen in iPadOS

Every iPad user has their own way of arranging app icons on the home screen. iPadOS adds more choices in their arsenal by enabling them to make app icons on iPad smaller or bigger.

The home screen of your iPad is packed with app icons that you regularly use. Though helpful in accessing the said apps faster, sometimes you might not enjoy the look of them. Until now you could only move them around for some variety, but the iPadOS enables you to resize them.

The iPadOS finally allows you to customize your home screen. You can not just switch between the light and dark mode but can even adjust iPad icon size on the Home screen. While you can’t choose an arbitrary size for the app icons, the choice between two presets seems like a great start.
