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

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.

Aside from the apparent difference in icon size and grid, these settings will bring one more change to your home screen. In the More setting, the widget area is placed on the left corner of your screen. Whereas, in the Bigger setting, this will show up as a translucent overlay on the screen.

Notably, the feature to make app icons on iPad smaller or bigger in iPadOS is exclusive and is currently not extended to iOS 13.
